DDW Pic 1997. First Order

First Order
The March of the First Order is a parade of stormtroopers that takes place many times each day, at Hollywood Studios. Star Wars continues to grow at this park, with the huge new land scheduled to open in just two years. I took this shot while giving a tour a few days ago.

DDW Pic 1996. Streets of America

Streets of America
This will probably be the last photo I ever post of the Streets of America section of Hollywood Studios. The building on the right of this shot is the last remnant of "New York City" that is still currently standing. This construction zone is where the new "Star Wars land" will open in 2019. Although it was sad to see the Streets of America torn down, I am certainly excited about what is to come.

DDW Pic 1995. Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios
As I was leaving Hollywood Studios yesterday, I took this sunset shot. Tower of Terror is an impressive structure that defines the skyline of this park. I was walking along the sidewalk near the bus stops when I took this shot.

DDW Pic 1994. Bay Lake Tower

Bay Lake Tower
he front of Bay Lake Tower is seen by tens of thousands of guests on a daily basis, as the monorails pass right by this resort. However, only those on a watercraft on Bay Lake can see the backside of the hotel. I was on a boat from Magic Kingdom to Fort Wilderness, when I took this shot yesterday.

DDW Pic 1993. Geyser Point

Geyser Point
Wilderness Lodge is undergoing a major refurbishment and expansion. Part of this is the new Geyser Point Bar and Grill. Located right on Bay Lake, this open air eatery is a nice quick service addition to the resort. I had lunch there today, and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

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.
