Three Visits to Longwood Gardens, Pennsylvania – with Nightscape!

Greetings, Over the past few years, I visited Longwood Gardens and took entirely too many photos. In the 400+ (yes) photos below, I hope you get an idea of how incredible this sprawling former DuPont estate really is. I think, if I still lived nearby, I’d buy an annual pass. Click any photo to enlarge!…

A Sunday at Magic Kingdom During the Pandemic

Greetings! On Sunday, October 18th, 2020, I visited Magic Kingdom for a few hours. I took the following photos – posted in chronological order – throughout my day and am sharing them so you get an idea of what it’s like during the pandemic. I definitely enjoyed the lack of crowds and the mandatory use…

Jaleo at Disney Springs

Greetings! Tonight, a friend and I went to Jaleo at Disney Springs and enjoyed some tapas on the patio with a wonderful view of Saratoga Springs. The food was fresh and incredibly good, and our server (Rafael from Venezuela) was incredibly knowledgeable and talented at his job. I highly recommend a visit here! -ADA

Happy Halloween: The Dream as a Ghost Ship

Welcome back, foolish mortals! This time of canceled cruises and staying home while our four favorite ships idle at sea can be trying. We start to think strange things… like, what if the Dream were empty, sailing the oceans under her own power… a ghost ship worthy of some vintage-style photography? I wanted to take…

Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Greetings! This post is about what I call Schroedinger’s Attraction – it’s Rafiki’s Planet Watch, and I’m never sure if it’s open or not. It’s closed “permanently” twice, is often “seasonal,” and I have no idea what’s happening during the pandemic. Regardless of whether it’s currently open or not, these pictures from 2014 show it…

Wild Florida Drive-Thru Safari Park

Welcome back! As with the Virginia Safari Park, this is a perfect afternoon activity – doubly so in a pandemic! This park is in Kenansville, FL, which is about half an hour from the Disney bubble. The park offers safaris, giraffe feedings, alligators, and airboat rides – we stuck to the driving safari and had…

Pandisney: BOATHOUSE in the Time of COVID.

Ahoy there! Welcome to the BOATHOUSE and Disney Springs in the time of COVID. I wanted to see how pandemic protocols were being followed before buying the Florida Resident four-day ticket. I found everyone (except one woman who thought carrying a drink excused her) wearing masks, tons of custodial CMs cleaning and sanitizing, people keeping…

Memorial Day Weekend at Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House

U hali gani? Welcome to a three-day weekend at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jambo House. This post is way overdue – the photos are over five years old! – but it felt like the right time to post it, as I have two non-park Disney vacations coming up due to COVID-19. Neither of my upcoming stays…

Non-Disney: The Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC

Tony’s Town Square: A Treat

Ciao, In this post, I take you on a photographic journey through Magic Kingdom’s Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. An oft-overlooked dining choice, I find Tony’s to be perfectly cozy, affordable, and delicious restaurant.  As always, click to enlarge any of the photos below and read a little bit more. Arrivederci, -ADA @AtDisneyAgain

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Hang onto your hats and glasses, folks, cause this here’s the wildest ride in the wilderness! It took many years and lots of chiding from my then-partner to finally ride this ride. I’m not a roller coaster fanatic by any means (this and Goofy are all I ride), but I love Big Thunder! I hope…
