A Stroll Down Memory Lane… Magic Kingdom 1973

Posted on
Recently, my husband and I did some home renovations, which led us to clearing out a lot of closets and throwing out a lot of old junk. Wow, it’s amazing what you accumulate after you’ve lived somewhere for 25 years! In the midst of Operation: Purge, my husband decided it was time to finally convert … Continue reading "A Stroll Down Memory Lane… Magic Kingdom 1973"

As the Norway pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase prepares for Frozen Ever After, we bid goodbye to the Maelstrom boat ride through Norway’s lore, wildlife and off shore oil platforms.

Photographing the American Adventure in Epcot

Posted on
Photographing the American Adventure audio-animatronics show in Epcot’s World Showcase is just like photographing one with live performers. Disney lights their shows the same regardless of the kind of performers. Very moody with bright areas used to focus the audience’s attention where the show’s producers want them to. I set my camera up to use … Continue reading "Photographing the American Adventure in Epcot"

Predicting the future is tough enough but when attractions are built showing the near future, time tends to catch up and even pass those attractions. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress premiered during the 1964 World Fair, traveled back to Disneyland and then moved to its current location at the Magic Kingdom in 1975.

Hold your horses, this isn’t a political battle. I’m just posting two photos from Hall of Presidents that were taken using the same low light from the same seat and tweaked completely differently in PhotoShop. Why?

Disney Pic of the Week: Hall of Presidents

He wanted to share this scene from Epcot’s American Adventure to remind his fellow patriots of the history behind our annual day of celebration and fireworks.

The Disney Imagineers did a monumental job in fitting together the history and elements of the United States of America in its art, accomplishments and architecture.
