That's cool! I've always wanted to see those up close when I spot them up on a building.

Sorry to be another person to quote the picture yet again, but I thing there may be more to this family's odd behavior than just appearing to be strange. I tend to think Disney would have stopped them at security or the gate unless they had a very good medical reason they needed such a huge umbrella. It's not an item easily missed even if folded up.

It does look odd though. Hehe.

I immediately wondered why you were posting Mardi Gras Float pictures!

But, ya, strange!

Oh my goodness Jud! That scared the crap out of me when it popped up on my screen! Very weird, odd, strange and disturbing.

If you ever stay again at SSR, BCV or "CB" (CBR?) you might want to be prepared to set-up your own animals.
Once at the CR or the Poly, I can't remember and the pics are on a disc right now, Mousekeeping staged my sons animals. One day we came back to see Kermit sitting on a Disney Beach Towel sunning (the light above the bed was turned on like it was the sun) Another day we came and and Kermit was watching tv. The remote was in his hand and the tv was on even though we turned it off when we left. There were a couple more. Every night we rushed back to the room to see what Kermit was doing next

I will dig up the pics later today and post them

This is me and a friend with the Giant _____ of Morocco in Epcot. It's in one of the little twisty areas, I think back by the restaurant. I don't remember where exactly.



Also, random, but I used to be one of the housekeepers who'd pose stuffed animals with remotes or the room service menu or what have you if there were any in the room I liked doing it I couldn't make towel animals, though.

I think it wouldn't be so scary if there was a better water slide to it, but otherwise it sticks up out of the pool/pond area and you're like what the heck is that?

Why does it look like his figures are backwards holding that knife? Is it me or is he saying "What are you looking at?"

Well, this was almost two years ago, and we had trouble finding it at first. Another friend of mine had told me about it, so when I got to my CP and wound up getting along really well with two of my roommates, I was like, "Hey, let's run over to Epcot, I wanna show you guys something!" I'm almost positive it's back by the restaurant, though
