DDW Pic 2529. United Kingdom

United Kingdom
There many great photo opportunities around Epcot’s World Showcase. The best time for non-crowd shots is very early in the day. I took this photo of the United Kingdom prior to World Showcase opening.

DDW Pic 2528. Rainforest Cafe

Rainforest Cafe
There are two Rainforest Caf├ęs on Disney property, and both are very popular. They are owned by the same company that also owns T-Rex, and Yak and Yeti. I took this shot just outside of the one at Animal Kingdom last week. This frog is their mascot.

DDW Pic 2527. China

China
Epcot has several great "circle-vision 360" films in World Showcase. These pavilions have nine screens that wrap completely around the guests who stand in the middle of the room. It is quite a way to learn about another country. I took this shot while enjoying China with my son last week.

DDW Pic 2526. All-Star Music Resort

All-Star Music Resort
I spent some time at the All-Star Music Resort this past week. The theming here is a lot of fun. I took this shot of the main pool shortly after it was evacuated for nearby lightning. It has a statue featuring the Three Caballeros.

DDW Pic 2525. Space Mountain

Space Mountain
Space Mountain is one of the most recognizable buildings in all of Walt Disney World. At the size of a football field and 187 feet tall, it can be seen from a good distance. However, this view from the roof of the nearby Contemporary is one of my favorites.

DDW Pic 2524. Ostrich

Ostrich
I had the chance to visit Animal Kingdom Lodge today. There is a little area to the left of the lobby called the "Sunset Overlook" room. This Ostrich walked right up to the small balcony just outside of the room.

DDW Pic 2523. Alien Swirling Saucers

Alien Swirling Saucers
The new Toy Story Land includes a family ride called Alien Swirling Saucers. The ride system is similar to Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree in California. This whole area of Hollywood Studios looks great at night.
