Pictures of things I didn't expect to see at Walt Disney World.

  • Nov 12, 2010

It has been difficult to decide which aspect of our recent Walt Disney World vacation to write about, so I thought I would review the 1,700+ photographs I took during six days of our visit. What I came across were a selection of individual photos that were unexpected. They didn't necessarily go together, but by their uniqueness, they all represent something different and not what your would expect to see while walking around the "World".

I hope that makes sense, but maybe the first photo will illustrate my point. As Mary Ann and I are walking around World Showcase, we reached the United Kingdom and something caught my eye. Actually several women who were stuffing themselves into the phone booth which is part of the decoration for that pavilion. There was a gentleman friend of the occupants (at least I hope he was) stuffing just one more lady into this small rectangular space. I think there are five, although you can only see four.


Now that you understand what I mean about photographing what I didn't expect to see, here are two other examples. This was the time of Halloween, but what I didn't expect to see were costumed guests in places other than the Magic Kingdom on All Saints' Eve. However here they were, many individuals and groups decorated to the nines in their best cosumes. Two were most interesting to me while walking around Epcot. The first being a couple, well dressed for the holiday.

Also in Epcot, I kept seeing different individuals all dressed alike during the day, but it wasn't until they all showed up in the same place at the same time that I was able to get a shot. They were very cooperative, and very creative as the entire family participated in the occasion.

We stayed at Pop Century, and of course at all the resorts I expect to see various types of transportation for the staff to get around what is a pretty large footprint. Two of the vehicles were most unusual and again, were unexpected. The first was a Golf Cart fashioned from the design of a 1950's Chevrolet convertable. Really Cool! Then there were the very appropriate baggage carts fashioned out of, what else, luggage.


I've walked around the Japan Pavilion in Epcot many times, but never took the time to view closely the Koi fish pond. They are very large, much larger than I expected to see.

And if you look closely, you will see the not so hidden, "Hidden Mickey" on the grate to the left.


The last photo in this series was not so unexpected, in that I took my camera on Dumbo in the Magic Kingdom in order to see if I could capture some of the construction taking place in the forthcoming Fantasyland redevelopment.  Not sure what is all means, but some progress is happening.

A dream is a wish your heart makes When you're fast asleep In dreams you will lose your heartaches Whatever you wish for, you keep   Have faith in your dreams and someday Your rainbows will come smiling through No matter how your heart is grieving If you keep on believing the dream that you wish will come true   A dream is a wish your heart makes When you're feeling small Alone in the night you whisper Thinking no one can hear you at all You wake with the morning …

This place is simply amazing. I'm neither a huge Disney fan nor a big theme park fan, but my family's trip to Walt Disney World (WDW) was incredible. I go to theme parks expecting to pay a lot of money for everything, from admission tickets and souvenirs to snacks and meals. However, at WDW I felt like I got a lot for what I paid. It's wasn't cheap, but it's the first time I've been to a theme park where I felt I got my money's worth. We had a fantastic time and it made for a truly "magical" vacation. …

The Increasing Use of Technology while at the Disney Parks
In this day and age most people won’t even step out their front door without a cell/smart phone. Pictures, apps, games and wireless internet are becoming everyday necessities. I myself have a Droid phone and whenever I am not moving I am on my Droid checking out a website, uploading pictures or news articles, and even playing games. Jonathan one of the writers here & I came up with a fun way of blogging while we are at the Disney Parks or Disney function. Live Blogging You would think …
