DDW Pic 424. Adventureland
I'm jumping from 1984, in my last post, back up to this month. We go from a grainy picture in front of an extinct railroad station to a crystal clear shot in Adventureland. I will always have an affinity for "old school" and extinct attractions at Walt Disney World, but nothing beats the quality of a digital picture taken in 2012. I love Adventureland on a sunny day. It is so lush and tropical, and there is a real island feel prevalent throughout the area. When I took this shot, I was standing in front of the Pirates of the Caribbean looking toward Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. The thatched roofing on that building has a very authentic look. However, since Central Florida is the lightning capital of America, the thatching is actually made of sheet metal strips to avoid the possibility of fire.
