DDW Pic 1498. Star Tours

Star Tours
I took this shot of the AT-AT Walker in front of Star Tours today. This impressive "prop" adds to the feel of the area. However, the future Star Wars land coming to Hollywood Studios will surely dwarf what is there now.

DDW Pic 1497. Animal Kingdom

Rivers of Light
I took this shot from the top of Expedition Everest today. You can see the two major construction projects taking place at Animal Kingdom. The area with the cranes is the giant Avatar expansion on the west side of the park. The area at the bottom of the photo is the spot where the Rivers of Light show will take place.

DDW Pic 1496. Scarecrow Mayor

Scarecrow Mayor
One of my favorite cast members at the Magic Kingdom is Mayor Christopher Weaver. He always has a smile and a corny joke for guests who approach him. This pumpkin scarecrow, which is part of the Halloween decorations, is a fun tribute to Mayor Weaver.

DDW Pic 1495. Mickey Topiary

Mickey Topiary
The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is underway once again. This is one of my favorite times of year at Walt Disney World. This year, they have created a Chef Mickey topiary, which can be found in the area between Future World and World Showcase. I took this shot today while giving an Epcot tour.

DDW Pic 1494. Lights, Motors, Action

Lights, Motors, Action
Lights, Motors, Action has been entertaining guests for over 10 years. Today I got a different perspective as I watched a portion of the show from an area where you can see "backstage." As this motor cycle stunt man came to this area to reverse his course, he took time to wave to me when he saw I was photographing him.

DDW Pic 1493. Tiger

Today, I saw some interesting activity in Maharajah Jungle Trek while giving an Animal Kingdom tour. One Tiger was playing in the pool near the beginning of the trail, and another was in the water at the end. I have rarely seen a tiger in the water in this exhibit, so it was fun to see two on the same day.

DDW Pic 1492. Haunted Mansion

Haunted Mansion
I recently upgraded to the iPhone 6s and wanted to try out its low light photo capability. So, I headed to my favorite attraction and took some shots. This one is from the stretching room.
