Snack break!

There is rather surprising sandwich, etc., selection at the Beastly Bazaar. The food might not be the Flame Tree BBQ but the signs sure are neat.

More coke sightings near Drinkwallah! his time classic bottle crates from around the globe...

Of street vendors and donkeys...

This fancy donkey cart sits outside of Italy but I seem to recall it first showed up at the Spain pavilion for one of the Food and Wine festivals... Not sure if anyone can confirm it either way but it does make a nice street vendor.

More fun than...

...a barrel of monkeys! With monkeys as big as you are, which means you can only be one place, at Toy Story Mania where the games are as big as your ego (until you go to jail, do not pass Go, do not collect $200)

Desktop: Lights, Camera, Breakfast

It's time for breakfast! You and Kellogg's cereal should be in pictures - you know that, right? Well if you don't have your big contract with the studio done quite yet maybe just a piece of fruit from the Fairfax Market will have to do for today...

Talk to Johnny

Johnny seems to get a lot of flak around the Backlot Express judging by the number of signs about his response times...

The distinctive Disney Trams have their own street-sign-like logo, at least at Epcot...

I scream, you scream

We all scream for ice cream - especially when the ice cream truck looks this cool! On the edge of Anandapur you can find this wild truck, even if you aren't hungry be sure to check out the artwork...

A tapestry of movies

The banners outside of the Great Movie Ride showcase just a few of the great movies. They are a colorful touch, I've always appreciated the extra splash of color - and check out those dragons on top!

St. George

In the platz in Germany there is a big statue of St. George fighting a dragon. A part of the main fountain, it is a central gathering place in the pavilion.

Refreshments needed

Coke's sponsorship and product placement has always been creative. While you are refueling your boat at Drinkwallah you can refuel yourself!

Scene 23: Preceding the explosion

Preceding the explosion in Scene 24 you have something of a chopper escape and invasion scene. The movie? Beats me, but the stunt crews are getting ready to go from the looks of things in the Backlot Express...

Desktop: Blast off

This week's belated desktop: Space Mountain and the new bright green look! It was barely open a week when this was shot and the lines were still massive so I've yet to actually ride the renovated version, yet another reason for a research trip!

Lions, gazelles, and hippos (oh my)

These three creatures are all merged as one in a painting found in one of the Animal Kingdom shops on Discovery Island. I believe it is in the Beastly Bazaar but it would appear a research trip is in order to make sure!

See - even the elephants like Coke! Check out their blankets - the logo should look familiar...

Since 1673...

Mitsukoshi tends to put US department stores to shame when it comes to age. And their mini-department store in the Japan pavilion is really something, with a little bit of everything it seems the place always seems to attract a crowd.

Fresh Pineapple Spears

Look around Adventureland and you can find this ad for Dole Pineapple Spears. I could go for a Dole Whip right about now. The fresh, refreshing taste is terrific - and the fact that you are in Adventureland never hurts!

Monorail dead ahead

Some places have bus stops, some places subway stops, but you know you're having fun when you see a monorail stop! And the Prototype font and 80's era monorail logo is a great Epcot throwback that looks even better when lit at night.

Desktop: NYC

This week our desktop is in New York City. And how often do you get to see an empty street like that? No cars, no people... It almost feels surreal, like a movie set. Oh wait...

Opening soon

Sort of appropriate for the internet challenged weekend, but the wires are back, the service is running, and we're once again live! Though the shop owners at this store in Ananadapur have other ideas about when they are going to open up shop...

Back to the Future

Need to head back to Future World and your feet just won't get you there? Try the Friendship boats. They ferry guests around the World Showcase lagoon and can be an interesting way to see the world... And by the way, happy new year!
