DDW Pic 1992. Komodo Dragon

Komodo Dragon
The Komodo Dragon is one of the more dangerous animals that can be seen in Animal Kingdom. It is located in the area just inside of the entrance to Maharajah Jungle Trek. He was in a great spot, sunning himself on a rock, when I took this shot a few days ago.

DDW Pic 1991. Royal Sommerhus

Royal Sommerhus
Anna and Elsa have recently moved back to Epcot, where they first began greeting guests more than 3 years ago. The Royal Sommerhus was added to the Norway pavilion last year, and is the sisters' "summer home." I took this shot today, while my tour guests were enjoying Frozen Ever After.

DDW Pic 1990. Castle Moat

Castle Moat
It was a beautiful day in the Magic Kingdom. As I was waiting for my tour guests to finish lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table, I was standing next to the castle looking toward the moat. I thought it was a nice spot for a photo.

DDW Pic 1989. American Crocodile

American Crocodile 
For the most part, Dinoland in Animal Kingdom is home to replica and audio animatronic dinosaurs. However, this very large American Crocodile lives in this area, and is very real. It looks like a modern version of a dinosaur, and the nearby cast member called it a "living fossil" today.

DDW Pic 1988. Zebra

Zebras are native to Africa, so naturally they would be found in that section of Animal Kingdom. They are on Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail, in the same area as the meerkats. I took this shot while giving an Animal Kingdom tour this morning.

DDW Pic 1987. Grand Floridian

Grand Floridian
The Grand Floridian is an impressive resort, and I've taken hundreds of photos there over the years. This morning, I walked from the parking lot to the main lobby to meet my tour guests. I was standing near the Beach Pool entrance when I snapped this shot.

DDW Pic 1986. Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins has been greeting guests in the gazebo in Liberty Square lately. This spot was previously occupied by Tiana, who recently moved to Princess Fairytale Hall. There was a nice short line to meet Mary, when I brought my tour guests there.
