Colorful Cargo

Nearby the beavers in yesterday's post you can find one of the cargo nets at Creature Comforts with this load of colorful barrels. Looking on the shelf in the background shows even more creative looking goods...

Busy as a beaver

Toluca Legs Turkey Co.

The Toluca Legs Turkey Co. is the place to get your turkey drummy fix on Sunset Blvd. Complete with its turkey faux weather vane (and Ranch market signage) it makes for a tasty stop while others take a limo to the Aerosmith show or check in to the Hollywood Hotel...

Penguins and ice cream

This ice cream cart is just one of many that can be found around the park. Appropriately themed for its frozen confection load, it has caribou, penquins, and seals decorating the exterior.

Desktop: Soda Fountain

Today's desktop - a stop by the soda fountain at MGM. Well, at least a stop by their sign. I'm not sure if I'm the only one out there but I still think it would be cool for a couple small counter service places to slide into New York Street behind the fascades. Looking at the aerial photos it looks like there is enough room for malt counter at least...

Futuristic Christmas

MouseGear has a look at the Christmas tree of the future. Looking more like a spring than a Christmas tree the metallic things look like something out of A Charlie Brown Christmas...

Christmas in July

Special feature time this week! Yep, time for Christmas in July - this evening we're taking a trip to Norway. This traditional pine wreath hangs outside the Kringla welcoming all hungry visitors...

Desktop: Leaving the Spaceship

Seeing that today is the 40th Anniversary of the first footsteps on the moon how about a quick look back at our home planet? Spaceship Earth is still our home, even 40 years after we walked on the moon despite all of the huge space age dreaming... Who knows what we'll do in the next 40 years but for today we're still here, watching the moon at night and wondering...

No cows allowed

Sorry folks, can't bring your cow or goat into the buildings around Anandapur. The folks at the Department of Health and Safety aren't real big on that it appears.

Pixar Farms Digital Foods

On the cereal box across from Toy Story Mania check out the manufacturer's information. Digital foods - so does that mean it is low-cal?

On this site...

...on July 17th 1805... The story of the Swiss Family Robinson story starts here on this sign outside the treehouse. From the ill-fated ship the Swallow to the magnificent treehouse it is quite the tale...

Desktop: Shop Yong Feng Shangdian

This week's desktop takes us to China in Epcot. The Yong Feng Shangdian Shopping Gallery is the main shop in the China pavilion and is quite the fancy shop at that. Take some time to stroll through it and look at the variety of items up for grabs or just relax out of the sun for a few minutes in its tranquil setting...

Studio Catering Co.

The sign at the Studio Catering Co. is typical of many found around MGM, esp. on this end of the park where it has more of a "production" feel to everything. The simple lettering, safety colors, etc. make it feel more like you are walking around an active studio...

Creature Comforts

Welcoming you into the Creature Comforts store is this whimsical creature filled sign. How many creatures can you spot on the sign?

Castillo del Morro

Did you know there are multiple Castillo del Morro's (Morro Castle) out there? The biggest is in Havana, but there is also one in Santiago de Cuba and another in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Based on the founding date (1643) on the sign, this location is Santiago de Cuba. That sets the stage and location for you journey, now go enjoy your trip on the Pirate's of the Caribbean.

Minor plane crash

It would appear that Goofy has a bit of trouble flying... Or at least with his water tower because it appears that Goofy's Wise Acres Farm has a minor issue...

This week's desktop? It will make your commute look boring beyond all belief...

Rosie's All American Cafe

Tucked along Sunset Blvd in MGM is Rosie's All American Cafe serving up American classics...and apparently heating them up with a red hot torch from the looks of the logo!

Go heat up some classics of your own with your own open flame (or at least a grill) and enjoy the Independence Day celebrations wherever they take you!

Another gateway...

Passing this point you leave the here and now and travel back to the birth of this nation, when thirteen colonies came together to gain their independence. Welcome to Liberty Square and the Fourth of July Weekend!

Sweet treats, sticky sticks...

It's another holiday weekend and what's a real holiday without popsicles? They make a great frame when all that is left is the multi-colored stick!

Desktop: Canada Day

Happy Canada Day! Often overlooked thanks to its proximity to the Fourth of July it is another national holiday worth celebrating... Therefore this week's belated desktop is bringing you to the heart of Quebec...
