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

“It’s Not Horizons…” Photo

Mission: Space is not Horizons. For this reason alone, I don’t think it will ever get a fair shake among serious Disney fans. To be sure, I’m not saying that Mission: Space is superior to Horizons. While I have incredibly vivid memories of Journey into Imagination, World of Motion, Body Wars, and other EPCOT Center

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

Illuminations: Reflections of Earth Photo

Illuminations is my favorite nighttime show at Walt Disney World by a colossal margin. To me, it transcends the normal Disney label of “fireworks spectacular” as it is so much more. In fact, when discussing “Remember… Dreams Come True” last year, I carefully reclassified Illuminations: Reflections of Earth as a “Sensory Tribute to Humanity” rather

Epcot’s China at Night Photo

Epcot in the World Showcase at Walt Disney World is another country that I love to photograph. For this photo, I got low with my Ultra Wide Angle lens and intentionally introduced some distortion into the scene. If you’re a fan of the World Showcase, you should check out our other great World Showcase content

Morocco Pavilion – Epcot Night Photo

Another view of the Morocco pavilion in Epcot at night. This is either my favorite or second favorite World Showcase pavilion to photograph (depends upon when you ask!), and I still haven’t explored all of the pavilion. It truly is a treasure-trove for photographers! See our previous Walt Disney World “Photos of the Day” by clicking

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

Journey into Imagination Reflection Photo

When you’re at Walt Disney World, sometimes mother nature gives you lemons that you must make into lemonade. More literally, sometimes there’s a torrential downpour that you should view as a positive and turn into awesome reflections photos. On the first night of our February 2012 Walt Disney World trip, most guests had left Epcot

O Canada! Epcot Photo

The Canada Pavilion in Epcot at Walt Disney World is one of the “average” pavilions, I think. The architecture is interesting, but not as strong as Morocco or France. O Canada! is a fun film, but Martin Short comes across as a caricature rather than a real Canadian. Le Cellier is a good restaurant, but
