Tom Sawyer Island: Childhood Heaven

Welcome back, I’d apologize for my absence lately, but life has been good and blogging is my therapy…. not needing therapy is a good thing :). This post is a pretty simple romp around Tom Sawyer Island at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. I shot a film camera on this same day, and will post those… eventually….

Maelstrom Memories

Hallo og velkommen! This is probably a pretty sad post for much of the Disney community. The loss of Maelstrom has been a hot topic for many moons on twitter, with most people expressing more attachment than I thought possible for this little boat ride in the corner of the World (Showcase). I didn’t ride…

Le Cellier Steakhouse and Victoria Gardens

Greetings! Recently, I joined @AmyLPlant and @EPCOT_Prime for dinner at Le Cellier at EPCOT. The pictures are below… I don’t think there’s too much explanation needed. :) -ADA @AtDisneyAgain

Second Star to the Right, and…

Darling (ha!) readers, Come away with me to ride Peter Pan’s Flight in 64 magical pictures. I don’t think I need to explain anything about the ride, as you’ve surely ridden it (especially now that FastPass+ makes it so easy to ride this heavy hitter). However, the pictures likely require some explaining: I took the…

La Cava del Tequila

¬°Bienvenidos, mis amigos! Recently, Melissa and I were welcomed into La Cava del Tequila shortly before opening to photograph this hot spot in rare form: empty. La Cava is a fan favorite at EPCOT, and it’s easy to see why: a huge selection of tequila, delicious fresh food, knowledgeable servers, low lights, cold air conditioning,…

Hello Co-Op! Goodbye Paycheck!

Greetings, fellow shoppers! The latest – dare I say “greatest” in the face of Starbucks fans? – addition to Downtown Disney is the Marketplace Co-Op. This store is a really revolutionary concept for Walt Disney World – a conglomeration of modularized retail spaces. The lovely Melissa Sue wrote all about our experience at the Marketplace…

Grand Floridian Easter Eggs 2014

Welcome back! For many months running last year, my original Grand Floridian Easter Egg Display post trumped all others in hits – well into June! This year, I wanted to see what those Disney Chefs came up with again and was not disappointed! I was super happy to see the Pimp Bunnies were back –…

Monsieur Paul

Bienvenue! On Labor Day weekend, I had the opportunity to try out the recently-refreshed Monsieur Paul in the France Pavilion at EPCOT. Joining me were @AmyLPlant, @JonDPlant, and my lovely girlfriend @misslissa_sue. We were all blown away by the beautiful settings, impeccable service, and wonderful food. Check the gallery below for a sampling of what…

Haunted Mansion: Room for One More…

Greetings, Mortals, Join me as I journey through the Walt Disney World’s Haunted Mansion. The first six pictures below are high-resolution HDR images that you may find suitable to use as wallpaper. The other 70 photos are from the ride and taken with the same low-light setup I discussed here. I did not use flash…

A Pirate’s Life for Me…

Ahoy, me hearties! Below you will find pictures from a ride on Pirates of the Caribbean. I am pretty happy with how these pictures turned out, as I was trying the new Canon 6D to see how well it did in low light situations. Photos were taken with a Canon 6D and a 50mm f/1.4…

Endor Wallpapers

Welcome back! On Saturday, April 13th, I spent thirteen hours at Hollywood Studios playing with my new 50mm lens. My Tower of Terror Wallpaper turned out to be really popular with you all, so I wanted to share three photos I took of “Endor” in the Star Tours queue. Click below for the large versions…
