DDW Pic 1790. Frontierland Station

Frontierland Station
There are three railroad stations around the Magic Kingdom, and each one is full of great details. This shot is from the waiting area of the Frontierland Station. The sign says "Lost and Found," and there are a bunch of items there that are right out of the 1800s.

DDW Pic 1789. Car Barn

Car Barn
The Magic Kingdom Car Barn houses the horse drawn carriage when it's not in use. Sometimes, shortly after their shifts are over, you can actually see the horses hanging out in this spot. I took this shot last week while doing some tour research at this park.

DDW Pic 1788. Adventureland

Adventureland
I took this photo of the center of Adventureland on an early morning visit to the Magic Kingdom last week. You can see how quiet this section of the park is at that hour. You can also see the puddle on the ground from the camel spitting. I think he was just warming up for a day full of spraying unexpecting guests walking by.

DDW Pic 1787. Maleficent

Maleficent 
While watching the afternoon parade at Magic Kingdom yesterday, I found myself in a good spot for photos. My favorite float is the fire breathing Maleficent. I like the way the fire looked, as if it was almost igniting City Hall.

DDW Pic 1786. Sir Mickey's

Sir Mickey's 
The Sir Mickey's shop in Fantasyland primarily sells princess themed merchandise. It is also the exit for the Cinderella meet-and-greet. Today, I was standing near the shop when I noticed the spiars of Cinderella Castle towering overhead, and I thought it would make for a fun picture.

DDW Pic 1785. Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom
This structure, across from Expedition Everest, is the FastPass entrance to Animal Kingdom's newest "theater." The 5,000 seat area on the banks of the Discovery River is temporarily home to a Jungle Book themed show. However, Rivers of Light, the permanent show, will be debuting sometime later this year. I love the amount of detail that Disney puts into something as simple as an entryway to an outdoor theater.

Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire
A new show recently debuted on the castle stage at Magic Kingdom. It is called Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire, and it stars Mickey and his pals, as well as characters from Tangled, Frozen, and The Princess and the Frog. This shot features Louis the alligator from The Princess and the Frog.
