DDW Pic 2361. Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire

Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire
Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire is the current castle stage show at Magic Kingdom. It features Mickey and his gang, as well as characters from Princess and the Frog, Tangled, and Frozen. As we are now fully into the Christmas season, the stars of the show are wearing festive holiday attire. I took this shot while giving a tour a few days ago.

Mickey’s Philharmagic
Mickey’s Philharmagic is an often overlooked gem at the Magic Kingdom. It is one of the best 3-D shows on the planet. This Mickey is in the adjacent gift shop, standing on a merchandise display. I used the new iPhone “stage light“ portrait effect in this shot.

Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse
Today we say “Happy 89th Birthday” to Mickey Mouse. They handed out special birthday buttons as you entered Magic Kingdom today. I decided to get a little creative as I was walking to the parking lot after giving a tour.

DDW Pic 2356. Haunted Mansion

Haunted Mansion
The Haunted Mansion has always been one of my favorite attractions. Yesterday, I found myself on Tom Sawyer Island, where I had this straight on view of the building. I transformed this picture into a spookier, black and white format using some iPhone effects.
