If you’ve viewed many of my photos, you’re no doubt aware that I love capturing the tranquility of the parks at night.

Our team consisted of myself and Sarah, plus our friend Nick, and JL Knopp of http://TheDisneyDrivenLife.com. As we stood in line earlier that morning at Epcot, we were struggling for a team name.

The Background Music seems to deeper and more palpable, the neon glows vibrantly, and the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover quietly glides by overhead. No other land in the Magic Kingdom has

In this interpretation of the statue, I imagine Walt saying, “Mickey, go forth and lead our Kingdom.” Mickey undoubtedly personifies the spirit of Walt Disney, and through him, the Disney Kingdom has prospered and grown far beyond Walt’s wildest
At Space Mountain, a rocket-ship blasts off after the recent refurbishment to the attraction that brought in a new queue, some new effects, and an impressive new post-show. While the refurb didn’t bring exceptional on-ride audio, on-ride audio was added a few months later.
