DDW Pic 1690. Splash Mountain

Splash Mountain
Like most "dark rides," it is difficult to get a good picture due to the light levels and motion inside of Splash Mountain. However, while visiting today, the ride temporarily stopped and the lights came on. This gave me the chance to grab this shot of the closed mine.

The United Kingdom pavilion at Epcot is a fun place to visit. As you can see from this shot, there are some nice, waterfront spots to enjoy a bite to eat ot to just take a break. I took this photo today while enjoying some beautiful weather.

DDW Pic 1617. The Land

The Land
The Land pavilion at Epcot is relatively quiet of late. Soarin' is down for a major refurbishment until summer, which is keeping many guests from visiting. However, the Sunshine Seasons Food Court is still open, which is a great quick service dining spot. The balloons overhead represent the four seasons. I took this shot while giving a tour today.

DDW Pic 1616. Adventureland

Adventureland
This Tiki statue sits atop the roof of Aloha Isle in Adventureland. I was standing near the exit of Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room when I snapped this shot. I like the silhouette effect that was created by the background sky.

The Affection Section is a "petting yard" located in Animal Kingdom. Guests take the Wildlife Express Train to Rafiki's Planet Watch to partake in this experience. I took this shot of a goat today, while giving a tour.

DDW Pic 1613. Star Wars Fireworks

Star Wars Fireworks
Hollywood Studios now has a nightly fireworks show called Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular. I saw it for the first time last night. It is truly one of the best fireworks shows I've ever seen. Set to Star Wars music, the power and energy of this production never lets up. This shot, with the emphasis on red, was during an "Empire" segment.
