DDW Pic 2514. Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage is a Broadway quality show at Hollywood Studios. It has been entertaining guests for more than 25 years, and it actually opened on the same day as the original movie. I took this shot last week, while doing some research at this park.

DDW Pic 2513. Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse
This is what you get when you take Mickey Mouse, put Jiminy Cricket’s hat on him, and hang him like a marionette in a dinosaur gift shop in Animal Kingdom. I have no idea what the significance of this is, but there is probably some funny backstory to it. I took this shot in Chester and Hester’s while giving a tour last week.

DDW Pic 2512. Slinky Dog Dash

Slinky Dog Dash
Opening just over a week ago, the new Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios is a big hit. The premiere attraction is a family style coaster called Slinky Dog Dash. It is a very fun ride that has more of a thrill factor than many anticipated. I took this shot a few days ago, just after riding it.

Expedition Everest
The queue for Expedition Everest has seen a relatively recent addition. In the area just before the loading platform, you will see some rotating advertisements. Using the RFID technology in the Magic Bands, guests’ names will often appear in the ads. I saw my name pop up on this one last week.

DDW Pic 2510. Goofy

The Walt Disney World custodians have the ability to take a course on drawing characters on the ground with water and a "broom." I have seen many Mickey‘s and Minnie’s over the years. This Goofy was drawn by a talented custodian in Tomorrowland last week.

There have been many characters who have greeted guests in the center of Town Square over the years. Pluto has certainly been one of the most frequent visitors. I took this shot a few days ago, while giving a Magic kingdom tour.

DDW Pic 2508. Elastigirl

As part of Disney’s "Incredible Summer," guests are able to interact with some of the characters from the recent movie. They come and go throughout the afternoon, and are part of the dance party in Tomorrowland. I took this shot of Elastigirl while giving a Magic Kingdom tour yesterday.
