DDW Pic 2378. Tree of Life

Tree of Life
The Tree of Life has several waterfalls built into its landscaping. This one is not far from the exit to It’s Tough to be a Bug. I took this shot today, and added the long exposure effect on the iPhone.

DDW Pic 2377. Cinderella Castle

Cinderella Castle
Although I have taken thousands of pictures of Cinderella Castle over the years, this one is relatively unique. Each night during the Christmas season, the castle is lit up in icicles, formed by 200,000 lights. However, I actually took this shot yesterday morning. Since the park opened so early, it was still a bit dark out, and the lights were still on.

DDW Pic 2376. Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios
The Christmas decorations around Walt Disney World seem better than ever this year. They moved the Hollywood Studios Christmas tree inside of the park, and it can now be seen at Echo Lake. Around the lake, you can see these Santa and reindeer decorations, which are hanging on light poles.

Disney Movie Magic is a projection show that debuted earlier this year at Hollywood Studios. It features many different Disney movie clips displayed on the Chinese theater, as well as on large “screens” on both sides. I took this shot of the Tron segment over this past weekend.

DDW Pic 2374. Mission Space

Mission Space
Mission Space is a pretty thrilling attraction at Epcot, and the only Disney ride with a vomit bag right in the “ride compartment.” It occupies the spot formerly held by Horizons, which was one of my favorite attractions in all of Walt Disney World. Mission Space has one the more unique exteriors to be found on property, and there are some fun photo opportunities. I took this shot today, while my tour guests were enjoying the attraction.

DDW Pic 2373. Timon

Timon is a popular character who can be seen in the Festival of the Lion King show at Animal Kingdom. He is rarely out meeting with guests. However, a few days ago, I spotted him in the area where Flik is normally stationed, not far from Pizzafari.

DDW Pic 2372. Sunset Seasons Greetings

Sunset Seasons Greetings
Hollywood Studios has added some additional Christmas fun this year. Sunset Seasons Greetings takes place throughout each evening on Sunset Boulevard. There are giant video screens, snow falling, music playing, and amazing projections on Tower of Terror. I took this shot tonight, as the tower was transformed into a giant gingerbread house.
