DDW Pic 2376. Hollywood Studios

Hollywood Studios
The Christmas decorations around Walt Disney World seem better than ever this year. They moved the Hollywood Studios Christmas tree inside of the park, and it can now be seen at Echo Lake. Around the lake, you can see these Santa and reindeer decorations, which are hanging on light poles.

Disney Movie Magic is a projection show that debuted earlier this year at Hollywood Studios. It features many different Disney movie clips displayed on the Chinese theater, as well as on large “screens” on both sides. I took this shot of the Tron segment over this past weekend.

DDW Pic 2374. Mission Space

Mission Space
Mission Space is a pretty thrilling attraction at Epcot, and the only Disney ride with a vomit bag right in the “ride compartment.” It occupies the spot formerly held by Horizons, which was one of my favorite attractions in all of Walt Disney World. Mission Space has one the more unique exteriors to be found on property, and there are some fun photo opportunities. I took this shot today, while my tour guests were enjoying the attraction.

Timon
Timon is a popular character who can be seen in the Festival of the Lion King show at Animal Kingdom. He is rarely out meeting with guests. However, a few days ago, I spotted him in the area where Flik is normally stationed, not far from Pizzafari.

Sunset Seasons Greetings
Hollywood Studios has added some additional Christmas fun this year. Sunset Seasons Greetings takes place throughout each evening on Sunset Boulevard. There are giant video screens, snow falling, music playing, and amazing projections on Tower of Terror. I took this shot tonight, as the tower was transformed into a giant gingerbread house.

DDW Pic 2370. Gorilla 

Gorilla
My favorite animals at Animal Kingdom have always been the gorillas. Because of this, I have taken many pictures of them over the years. Here is a shot that I took today, while this guy was eating some vegetation. It almost looks like he is laughing.

DDW Pic 2369. Fantasyland

Fantasyland
There are so many details to be found while walking around Magic Kingdom. Many guests miss out on some of these by not looking up. This porch is one of several decorated spots that can be found above Fantasyland. It is right next to Princess Fairytale Hall.

DDW Pic 2367. The Emporium

The Emporium
Normally, the window displays on the outside of the Emporium at the Magic Kingdom feature classic animated movies. However, during the Christmas season, the windows have scenes from Mickey’s Christmas Carol. This window can be seen on the southern side of the store, facing the park entrance.
