This year's Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot features a new topiary from the Cars universe. Cruz Ramirez can be found along side Lightning McQueen, not far from the Test Track area. Cruz is one of the stars of the newest Cars movie that will be in theaters in June.

DDW Pic 2027. Country Bear Jamboree

Country Bear Jamboree
The Country Bear Jamboree is a classic attraction that has been at Magic Kingdom since opening day. As one of only three attractions that were unique to Walt Disney World (compared to Disneyland) in 1971, this is truly a classic. My favorite character from the show has always been Big Al, who was voiced by Tex Ritter. I took this shot yesterday, while my tour guests were enjoying the show.

DDW Pic 2026. Backlot Express

Backlot Express
I don't normally post food photos, but this food has a theme. The Backlot Express at Hollywood Studios is not far from Star Tours, and some of the meals now have Star Wars names. I enjoyed the Dark Side Chicken and Waffles for lunch a few days ago.

The majority of the Flower and Garden Festival topiaries around World Showcase are Disney characters. However, there are some unique ones, like this dragon in China. I took this shot on a picturesque day last week.

Pirate's Adventure
The Pirate's Adventure is a fun "treasure hunt" game that takes place in Adventureland. Guests can follow five different maps to locate interactive displays that are activated by their Magic Bands or park tickets. I took this shot of some talking pirate skulls while touring with some fun guests yesterday.

The Seas
The Seas with Nemo and Friends is a fun little ride that takes guests into the 2nd largest aquarium in the country. Toward the end of the attraction, there are animated characters from the movie mixed in with the actual marine life. Here is a shot of Mr. Ray and his students.

DDW Pic 2022. Main Street, USA

Main Street, USA
When you enter the Magic Kingdom, it feels like you have stepped back in time to the beginning of the 20th century. Everything from the music, the vehicles, and the cast member costumes brings you right into the early 1900s. One of my favorite tidbits to be found here is this "real" mailbox. It is a place where you can actually mail a letter from the Magic Kingdom. I also like that the manufacturer is from my home state of CT.
