Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade – 2013

Season’s greetings! September seems like a perfectly random time to publish 262 pictures of the now-defunct Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This parade ended in 2013 – which is the same year during which I took these photos. The photos are randomized over three viewings of the parade, from roughly the same…

Cretaceous Christmas

Merry Christmas! One of the oft-maligned lands at Walt Disney World is Dinoland, U.S.A. I love it – without apology – for what it is: a perfectly-themed roadside attraction and carnival that sprung up in the middle of the 20th Century around the site of an archaeological dig. Melissa has written much more about this…

Kinaras, Dreidels, and Nutcrackers – Oh My!

Happy Holidays, everyone! One of my favorite activities to do each year at Walt Disney World is EPCOT’s Holidays Around the World. Each pavilion has a storyteller talking about the holidays celebrated around Christmas in each country. In this post, I share some photos from three celebrations: Kwanzaa and Hanukkah – both in the American…

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 –…

Last Christmas at Camp Minnie-Mickey

Welcome back, As most of you know, Camp Minnie-Mickey at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is now closed to make way for construction of the new AVATAR-themed area of the park. I was fortunate enough this year to visit Camp Minnie-Mickey just before Christmas and also on its last day of operation: January 5th, 2013. I guess…

Christmas Wishes

Welcome back! Just before Thanksgiving, I was able to head over to Magic Kingdom on a work night to take some pictures of “Wishes” framed with the Main Street, USA garlands and wreaths. The next day at work I was barely able to walk, but I think the ankle pain was worth it considering how…

Yacht and Beachmas

Welcome back! In this post, you will find a ridiculous number* of photos detailing the Christmas decorations at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. The two main showcases at these resorts are the Yacht Club’s scale model of a wintry town and the Beach Club’s gingerbread carousel. I made sure to get plenty of pictures…

Jingle Cruise

Happy whatever you celebrate and welcome! I recently took some pictures of a holiday overlay that involves touches of Christmas decor being added to the classic Jungle Cruise. The Jingle Cruise’s decoration is almost exclusively in at base camp and on the boats. Only Trader Sam gets the holiday treatment out in the jungle. The…

We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Oven…

I decided to hop a monorail and take pics of the gingerbread tree and soldiers at the Contemporary as well. Below, you will find 87 pictures, in random order….
