DDW Pic 2401. Disney Springs

Disney Springs
Disney Springs has come a long way since it was called Downtown Disney. This area was built from the ground up, in what used to be the parking lot. I took this shot last week, and you can see that the Christmas garland was still up.

DDW Pic 2400. Monorail 

The Walt Disney World monorail is one of the more unique forms of transportation to be found anywhere. Although it serves the important function of carrying thousands of people around the resort each day, it is also a fun, futuristic, and fast moving ride. This shot shows monorail gold pulling into the Magic Kingdom station.

DDW Pic 2399. Tree of Life

Tree of Life
The Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom has over 325 animals carved into it. Some of them can only be seen on the trails around Discovery Island. I took this rhino and bird shot at the base of the tree yesterday, while giving a tour.

Valley of Mo’ara
The Valley of Mo’ara is the area of Pandora created for the new Avatar section of Animal Kingdom. It is a lush landscape filled with unique Pandoran flowers and plants. I took this shot today, while standing near the entrance to the Na’vi River Journey.

DDW Pic 2397. The Barnstormer 

The Barnstormer 
The Barnstormer is a classic “kid” coaster in the Storybook Circus area of Magic Kingdom. The airplane themed ride flies right thru this giant billboard. If you look closely at the bottom airplane in this picture, you’ll see a classic hidden Mickey in the middle of the propeller.

DDW Pic 2395. Frozone

The “Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It!” street party is very popular at Magic Kingdom. It features the traditional Disney characters, but there are also some newer ones as well. I took this shot of Frozone today, as the float he was on paraded down Main Street.
