DDW Pic 1704. Carrousel Fireworks

Carrousel Fireworks
Last night, we caught much of Wishes from Fantasyland. At one point, I was standing in the entrance to "New Fantasyland" when these fireworks were going off. At this angle, it almost looked like they were being shot directly from the roof of Prince Charming Regal Carrousel.

it's a small world
The most popular theme park attraction in the world just received a fun update. If you are wearing a "magic band," you get a personalized goodbye message while riding it's a small world. While enjoying this ride with my son tonight, we saw our names appear on a screen in the "goodbye" room. This is another example of Disney making good use of new technology to enhance the guest experience.

Germany
The Germany pavilion at Epcot has some fun shops and good food. The caramel popcorn is one of my favorite snacks at Walt Disney World. I took this shot of the Weinkeller a few days ago while walking around World Showcase.

The Tamu Tamu refreshment stand is now an ice cream spot in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom. It features the famous Dole Whip. I took this shot while sitting in the outdoor covered waiting area of Tusker House a few days ago.

The Biergarten is a festive restaurant, with live entertainment, in the German pavilion at Epcot. Today, I dropped by to take a few quick photos around lunchtime. The band was playing a polka at the time I snapped this shot.

Wildlife Express
The Wildlife Express is the train that takes guests to Conservation Station from the Africa section of Animal Kingdom. I was giving a tour when I snapped this shot today. I was in the back car and took the photo as we pulled out of the station, on our way back to Africa.

Echo Lake is located in the center of Hollywood Studios. I took this photo a few days ago while standing next to Dinosaur Gertie's ice cream stand. You can see Min and Bill's Dockside Diner across the lake.
