DDW Pic 2119. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train continues to be the most popular attraction at Magic Kingdom, in terms of "wait times." The best way to keep your wait under an hour is to use FastPasses or get there very early. If you do walk thru the standby queue, you will come across this sign as you are entering the building.

DDW Pic 2118. Pirates

Pirates
Although Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World, it is a tough one for photography. Whenever you mix darkness and motion, getting a clear picture is a difficult proposition. However, I was able to get this shot of the classic "jail cell" scene a few days ago.

DDW Pic 2117. Goofy

Goofy 
Most Disney characters have specific locations where they meet guests. However, often times you can see them walking through the parks on the way to their meet-and-greet spots. I took this shot of Goofy near the ABC Commissary in Hollywood Studios.

DDW Pic 2116. Confectionery

Confectionery
The Confectionery is one of the first "shops" that guests encounter after entering Magic Kingdom. If they don't see the sign over the door, they are certainly drawn in by the sweet smells. I took this shot yesterday morning, before the official opening of the park.

DDW Pic 2115. Liberty Square

Liberty Square
It was a beautiful morning as I walked thru Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom. The water was calm and reflecting, and the sky was blue. It made for a nice landscape photo.

DDW Pic 2114. Restaurant Marrakesh

Restaurant Marrakesh
Morocco has always been one of my favorite World Showcase countries at Epcot. When you walk to the back of that pavilion, you truly feel like you've been transported to a different part of the world. This is the exterior of Restaurant Marrakesh, a unique table-service dining location.

DDW Pic 2113. Gorilla Falls

Gorilla Falls
Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail in Animal Kingdom is home to some of the most interesting animals at this park. You can find hippos, zebras, monkeys, meerkats, and the amazing gorillas in this area. I noticed this display while visiting today. It compares the human skull to male and female gorilla skulls.
