This week I want to point out even when it rains at Walt Disney World, there is no reason not to look for unique photos. On my last visit, a rainstorm blew in as my party was shopping on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom. While I stayed dry under a covered sidewalk, I … Continue reading "Raining on Main Street USA"

Disney Halloween Past

While waiting in the social distancing line for the Haunted Mansion in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom, I could not help but feel the queue was, well, dead. No interactivity, no Mansion Cast Members and only a walk through of the stretching room.

Edge of Apertures in Galaxy’s Edge

New Experiences and Photo Opportunities at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Posted on
Walt Disney World is always changing and evolving. While I do not enjoy saying goodbye to a cherished ride or attraction, for the most part, I have liked the new ones the Imagineers have replaced them with. Case in point is the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway inside the Chinese Theatre at the end … Continue reading "New Experiences and Photo Opportunities at Disney’s Hollywood Studios"

Currently, the only way you can see and photograph Disney characters at Walt Disney World is during the many Character Cavalcades at each of the themeparks.
