DDW Pic 1758. Magic Kingdom Entrance

Magic Kingdom Entrance
Here is a photo of the entrance to the busiest theme park in the world. The only way to get this shot is from a boat on the Seven Seas Lagoon. I was on the Richard F. Irvine ferry boat when I took this one a few weeks ago.

DDW Pic 1757. Haunted Mansion

Haunted Mansion
As I've mentioned in the past, Haunted Mansion is my favorite attraction. It isn't easy to take indoor photos, because of the darkness. However, I try to take as many outside shots as possible. I took this one last week, while waiting for my tour guests at the exit.

DDW Pic 1756. The Barnstormer

The Barnstormer
The Barnstormer is a fun, albeit short, kiddie coaster. It is based on the mishaps of the Great Goofini, who is a circus performer who is prone to accidents. This billboard has a large hole where the "airplane" coaster flies through. If you look closely at the lower plane on the right side of the billboard, you will see a hidden Mickey in the center of the propeller. 

DDW Pic 1755. Be Our Guest

Be Our Guest
The Be Our Guest restaurant is still one of the most popular in the Magic Kingdom. The details are plentiful both inside and out. I took this shot of a gargoyle on the bridge last week while giving a tour.

DDW Pic 1754. Hall of Presidents

Hall of Presidents
This portrait can be found in the lobby of Hall of Presidents, just to the right of the entrance to the theater. Of course it is significant because it features our first president, George Washington. However, it also contains a little detail that most guests overlook. If you look closely, you will find a hidden Mickey at the very bottom of the sword sheath that he is holding.

DDW Pic 1753. Mickey's Philharmagic

Mickey's Philharmagic 
Mickey's Philharmagic is one of the best 3D shows on Disney property. It concludes with Donald Duck falling through the back wall into the gift shop. After exiting the show, you can see the angry Donald hanging from the shop ceiling. 

DDW Pic 1752. Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean
Pirates of the Caribbean is a classic attraction with endless details. One of my favorites is the hidden Mickey that can be found in this portrait, located near the exit of the attraction. If you zoom in on her left shoulder, you will see the classic Mickey.
