Hey folks - I'm back! After a brief interruption due to some unexpected traveling I'm back in action. And today we're traveling with the Space Ranger crew in search of hidden Mickey's. In the exit queue one of the Little Green Men helps point one out as he points to another ship out the window...

Scary Christmas Ornaments

These rather scary Christmas ornaments stare down at you from the prop storage area in the small store adjacent to the Studios Catering Co.

No lodging

Sorry folks, no lodging at night it looks like, at least at the small refreshment stand at the entrance to Anandapur...

Emergency light

Found in the Studio 1 store, the Happiness Hotel's emergency light leaves a lot to be desired but then again the price is certainly right for the rooms!

Walk this way

These dual sided signs guide your way on the peaceful and secluded path between Mickey's Toontown Fair and Tomorrowland.

Flying high

Hanging from the ceiling of Creature Comforts is this whimsical bird - and some luggage in a net it appears. I don't see any of mine in there...

Barrel of Monkeys

Someone opened up a barrel of monkeys near Toy Story Mania and those guys are everywhere! Look all around and you can't miss them swinging from everything in sight, what a bunch of trouble makers...

Desktop: Off to the match

This week we're in England - on the corner is the Sportsman's Shoppe which sports some serious architectural details. Look at the chimneys alone, you would swear they were actually using the fireplaces inside...

Designer Welding

Need some welding? How about iron grates? These guys at the local metal shop can do it for you - if they ever show up for work that is... This sign is one of just many in the courtyard/faux shops adjacent to the Yak & Yeti for the counter service diners...

Planet Z

You have a secret mission from Star Command that is going to take you all the way to Sector 9 and Planet Z. It may be dangerous, it may be difficult, it certainly will involve little green men, it'll be past the danger zone. So do you accept it?

Lightning bugs

These lightning bugs are helping light up the Creature Comforts shop...

Desktop: Serka Zong Bazaar

This week we're visiting Serka Zong - this photo is the Bazaar (which just happens to double up as the gift shop for Everest - convenient isn't it?). If you are waiting for your expedition party to return or just exploring be sure to soak up all the details of the buildings with their intricate art work, carvings, etc.

100 tons

If you look up as you tour the shop adjacent to the Studios Catering Company you'll see all sorts of props hanging from the ceiling, inc. this massive "100 ton" weight.

Robot attack!

It's a robot attack! Zurg is at it again and the Little Green Men need all the help they can get - and that means you! So quit standing around in line and go defeat the evil Emperor Zurg!

A canoe for lunch

I've always been a fan of this sign from Day 1 - there is just something fun and comical about the bear taking a bite out of the canoe with all the legs hanging out from under it. You can't miss the huge sign as you head around Discovery Island to either Camp Minnie-Mickey or Africa...

Sugar Crunchies

Now this is my kind of breakfast! Sugar frosted double dipped chocolate horseshoes - and they are even packed with vitamins it says! What a deal - a sugar buzz that is actually good for you... Sort of reminds me of a certain cereal that made an appearance in Calvin & Hobbes from time to time...

Desktop: Moroccan waterwheel...

This week's desktop takes us to Morocco - along the lagoon there is a waterwheel that peacefully turns. It is near the quiet garden, all together it is a nice place to rest your feet as you make your grand tour... Or it also makes a nice place to frame up Spaceship Earth for some photos...
