Itís the unique tropical smell that seems so Disney, the soft sounds of the night bugs and frogs and the glow of the lights along the walkway. Itís the feeling of total and utter exhaustion blended with the total and utter happiness and that faint tickle at the back of your heart from another day at the World.

Aw, that gave me goosebumps!

As always, I love your photos! Wow!

I'm really stumped by the latest "where in the world?". I'll guess the Living Seas...but I think my streak has come to an end!

Pluto_fan, you are absolutely right! Your streak is over. It is not the Living Seas. Hint: you are in the wrong park.

My first thought on the pic is a lantern on a jungle cruise boat. But I have a few other guesses if that is wrong.

Yep, it is indeed a lantern on a Jungle Cruise boat. Did your sons help you?

You are right. For bonus points, can you say exactly where in the Backlot Tour this is?

Hint: This is for my friend Rosemary!



Correctly guessed by rcsilverspring: her home away from home ... the lobby of the Poly.

Guessed correctly by haleofafamily: It is one of the statues in the villians store on Sunset Blvd, Hollywood Studios.

Great Chapter 7! Love all the pictures especially of Fantasmic, one of my very favorite shows!

I'm completely stumped by your latest "Where in the World". Will be watching to see who gets this one!

After much discussion we have decided that this picture is from Fantasmic! maybe a poster for it or something. We're pretty sure its Jafar from Aladdin.

Right villain, but it is not a picture from Fantasmic or a poster. Good try though. Hint: you are in the right general neighborhood.
