I have to agree with you that the Animal Kingdom is a great park. I can't say it's my favorite, but it comes close. 10 times riding Everest....very nice.

I'm sorry to hear about your computer. I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures soon.

Thank you for the kind words. Yep, Everest was a blast!

WOW!

Wow, wow, wow!!!

I am really, really impressed!

I am a total photography wannabe, and am just drooling over your art!


You truly have an eye for details (the very thing I'm looking for in my trip this Sept.) and have inspired me to really keep my eyes wide open for the little things.

Questions:

Are most of your photos HD?? The colors are so sharp and pretty!

You say you have a middle of the road camera. Can you be more specific??

Thanks for such a wonderful spread of lucious Disney-ness!

Thank you. I really had fun looking for detail. I got the idea from looking at a thread here on the DIS Photography board called something like "Photos Your Average Tourist May Not Take" or similar. So many cool photos there.

Disney has given so much thought to the details. I've been there many times before, and didn't notice as much as I did this time. I can't wait to go back and see more!

No, but I do "tweak" them on the computer using Picnik.

Yes, it's a Fuji Finepix s6000fd. It was recommended to me by some over on the DIS Photography Board.

DAY 11: EPCOT

Today was so much fun! While riding "Living With the Land" earlier in our trip, my youngest asked if we could please go on the "Behind the Seeds" tour. So that was one of the things on our agenda today.





The kids got to release ladybugs onto some plants:





Our tour guide at the end of the tour:




After the tour, we explored the World Showcase:

Mural in Mexico:


Architecture in Italy:


Marketplace in Morocco:


Raspberry Cheesecake from the French Bakery:


France:




Rode the new "Sum of all Thrills"




Did the Waste Management thing at Innoventions:




The kids starred in their own video game:



Kids were tired, so we went back to the room for awhile to rest, and my youngest swam. Headed over to the Magic Kingdom to catch Spectromagic:














Quick ride on the Carousel...(and if you look closely, you can see my daughter is wearing her cast sweatshirt from the musical "Carousel" she was in back home...



On our way out of the park, we took a little detour through Casey's....


And thus ends yet another wonderful day in the magical world of Walt Disney!

DAY 12: EPCOT

We did sleep in a bit again today, and decided to have a "shopping day." We started off in Downtown Disney, and got some souvenirs. After shopping, we had lunch at Wolfgang Express. Excellent food, and really nice cast members.

I had the alfredo pasta with chicken. Mmmm...


Daughter had the chicken strips, and they were great.


Did a little shopping at the Lego store:


After shopping and lunch, we headed over to Epcot. We wanted to do a few rides, and then shop throughout the countries, and get a little 'something' from each country. These were great souvenirs for the kids.

Mission: Space was first up:




This next picture is special for my daughter. She sings soprano in a choir back home, and so she really liked listening to the soprano in the "Voices of Liberty" in the American Pavilion. She was so shy to go up and talk to her, but I encouraged her to so I could get a picture. The young lady was so nice and talked to my daughter for quite some time about singing.



France:




My son was so looking forward to fish and chips...and they were everything he was dreaming of!




It started to get dark...Epcot is so pretty there at night...






Stopped to watch Off Kilter for awhile:


Then continued to shop in the different countries:

China:






Italy:




Africa:


FutureWorld:


And of course, a yummy candy bar from England:

Words can't even describe how beautiful your pics are! You did an amazing job of capturing the Disney essence It is fun to look at all the little details and not get caught up in just taking pics of family with the usual Disney backgrounds (although family pics are definitely important too!) Sounds like you three are experiencing Disney in the best way

Thank you. It was so fun to look for all the details. There are so many I often would just not notice before. Even the kids loved looking for things. I can't wait to go back and look for more!

DAY 13: HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS

Hollywood Studios is my daughter's favorite park.

We started the day watching some "Streetmosphere" performers. They were great!






There is so much to see in this park!






We enjoyed the goodies at Starring Rolls Bakery:



















Movie prop from "Chronicles of Narnia"


Backlot Express:


Yay! My son got his turkey leg!




One of my favorite places in the park...the Writer's Stop (has good mochas and cookies!)

DAY 14: ANIMAL KINGDOM / MAGIC KINGDOM / EPCOT (cont.)

Back over to Magic Kingdom:

Swiss Family Treehouse:


Dole Whip:





Parade:














Next, headed over to Epcot!







Believe it or not, we had never tried a funnel cake before. Oh my! It was SO delicious!


One last ride on Test Track:


And one last ride on Spaceship Earth. We got there with less than 1 minute to closing. After we got on, there was some maintenance delay, so we waited about 20 minutes. A lot of others got off, so we pretty much had the ride to ourselves.
