Talking Bench video possiblities

Here's mine.

On the Beach at the Polynesian with a cool drink overlooking the castle.

At the Wilderness Lodge in front of the Large fire in the lobby or at the outside snack bar area looking at the pool.

World Showcase bench anywhere.

My favorite spot for sitting and relaxing is the porch at the Boardwalk facing Crescent Lake.

We always plan a couple of hours before Magic Express to just sit on the porch and soak in all the atmosphere before we leave. Solo trips not the ones with the kids.

You'll also find us sitting on any bench people watching too.

we have a few fave places to chill and take it all in -

the small "plaza" of sorts in front of Germany, overlooking the lake and SSE.

a bench at HS looking at the hat. Good vantage point to take it all in. Off to the right of GMR.

by Dawa Bar at AK. Outside Tusker House.

bench at bus stop at Pop Century or a table outside the bar

Yes please! I'm sure you'll get lots of volunteers to do this one.

First, let me say that these videos are a brilliant idea. Kudos to whoever thought of it. I do have one recommendation for future videos. Try to place the camera in proximity to speakers that are playing the music for whichever theme park or resort your're in. The music is such a huge part of the atmosphere for me that I want to hear it higher in the mix.

Keep the videos coming. It will be more than a year until I go back to the World, so this is a wonderful respite.

+1 to max'sdad's comment about music, though I do like Innoventions Plaza, where you can hear the music in the distance -- there are quieter spots in the parks, after all. But yes, the music adds to the ambience so much.

As far as requests (are you even officially taking them??), I'd love to see a bench facing the turnstiles in any of the parks to see people's reactions as they enter. Such a magical moment for so many!

Wink

I really like the suggestion of more music areas.

I will add the TOT alcove near the exit where you can hear the ghostly music.

Ooh, bus stop at AKL Jambo House. You could even get on one of the buses and then get off, LOL.

I'd love to watch some from Disneyland, too. Perhaps Tom could do a park bench in Cars Land? Or Pete could do a park bench at Tokyo Disney or Disney Sea!
