Tall Palms, Full Moon, Big Spaceship Earth

It’s becoming more and more difficult to think of unique names for Spaceship Earth photos, given that I have so many of them. The only thing stopping me from switching to a bland numbering scheme (“Spaceship Earth 112,” “Spaceship Earth 113,” etc.) is that I’d never remember what number I was on. Whether one person

Another Spaceship Earth Night Photo

With each Spaceship Earth photo I post, it becomes more and more difficult to come up with something to say about the shot. I’ve said all of this before, but it bears repeating… Spaceship Earth is my favorite photo-subject at Walt Disney World. It’s an amazing and unique icon. It is the embodiment of what

Epcot Monorail Race Photo

This scene of two ‘racing’ monorails, Spaceship Earth, and the flower bed at Epcot has become one of my Walt Disney World “Signature Shots.” The original from 2009 is one of my most popular Flickr photos of all time, and that photo (which was inspired itself by a Walt Disney World press photo from the

The Incrediblesorail – Epcot Monorail Photo

Today, I’m excited to announce Walt Disney World’s new experimental prototype monorail of tomorrow (or “EPMOT” as Disney has dubbed it) for the Epcot monorail line: the Incrediblesorail! Much like Elastigirl, this monorail is able to stretch its length around the entire center of Epcot, covering the full length of the monorail track within Epcot

Spaceship Earth Fountain Photo

I love this fountain in front of Spaceship Earth at Epcot. It’s a sight for sore eyes after you pass the Leave a Legacy tombstones, and it allows for interesting composition when taking photos. Unlike a lot of other EPCOT Center fans, I don’t really wish the lucite marker that used to rise above the

We’ve Just Begun to Dream – Epcot Photo

No part of Walt Disney World resonates with me as much as the version of EPCOT Center that existed during my childhood years. There was such a sense of bright-eyed optimism about the place and slogans like “we’ve just begun to dream” and “the dawning of a new Disney era” really bore out the ambition

Monorail Racing Through Epcot In Bloom

I’ve done a lot of different perspectives for monorail photos at Epcot, but I had never photographed this one until our February 2012 Walt Disney World trip, nor had I seen anyone else photograph this perspective. I had to get low to the flower bed for this view and wait a few minutes for the

Spaceship Earth Post-Storm Photo

I’ve already shared several of my photos from this rainy night at Epcot, including this photo of Spaceship Earth that several others called my best photo of Spaceship Earth ever. While I like that shot a lot, I wouldn’t call it my best ever, or even best Spaceship Earth photo of that particular evening. The

The Dawn Of A New Disney Era Photo

The only structure of its kind anywhere, EPCOT Center’s colossal geosphere will tower 180 feet above the entrance to Future World. Once beyond this architectural wonder, the Future World visitor will know no boundaries. We had a bit of time to kill one morning before lunch at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World; it
