Back on track soon

Another one of the newer, creatively worded construction signs - this one is for the Casey Jr. Circus Train. It isn't running today, but he'll be back on track soon...

Wind up in a Briar Patch

That's what a 52 foor plunge will get you! Well, besides good and wet... These newspaper stories can be found in the Frontierland station on the Walt Disney World Railroad which runs right up against the Splash Mountain facade...

Desktop: Leaving port...

Gliding down the river past Harper's Mill is Tiana's Showboat all decked out in its Mardi Gras splendor, this short-lived show sure spiced up the Rivers of America!

A dream come true

There are still visions of Figment around the Imgaination pavillion - sure he's back in the ride but it just isn't quite the same... Still, you can get your picture of him around the area...

Earth Day

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than with a couple of photos of the creatures we share the planet with? We all call it home, after all, whether it is in the city, the county, the jungle, or the savanna

Peter Pan

Remember the old ViewMaster toys? The discs are featured all around the Toy Story Mania queue - supersized of course!

Desktop: Deep in the Himalayas...

This week being host to Earth Day we need a desktop showcasing a little bit of nature. Sure, the mountain might be man-made and the snow and ice might be just paint and plaster, but it still brings a bit of a chill as you walk by as if you were in Nepal and Tibet...

The Village Haus

In another install of Disney sign investigators we look at The Pinocchio Village Haus. The sign is fancy but what really makes it is the 3-D Pinocchio figure about it with a mug and slice of cake...

Body parts

Body parts, anyone? Inside the Test Track queue you can find all sorts of interesting displays, including this one with extra crash dummy parts...

Fortunes Redd

Fortunes Redd is the Esmeralda of New Orleans Square. Not as famous, mind you, or as sarcastic as say Shrunken Ned but he still cranks out a fortunes daily near the exit of Pirates of the Caribbean.

China Closet

One of the many former stores on Main Street that has since changed names and been consolidated, the sign still hangs for all to enjoy.

Mixed Vermin

Need Mixed Vermin for your next movie? How about Gale Force Winds? Or how about that Dust Bowl scene, need any supplies with that? Because the Muppet 3-D effects lab can certainly help out...

Tatooine Traders

The brutal climate on Tatooine makes signage tough, so you might as well just carve it into the rock that your building is made out of (or the side of the hill it is built in....).

Brother Claude

The gravestones for Brother Claude and Mister Sewell await visitors to the Haunted Mansion

Playful spooks have interrupted our tour....

...Please remain seated in your doom buggy....

Bear with the gaps in the updates and photos for just a few more days, some minor scheduling conflicts in the past week or so have crept up. Don't worry if there is a day without a post here and there, we'll be back to normal by the weekend!

A blimp that will blow your imagination

The great blimp that Dreamfinder and Figment used to fly in the orignal Imagination attraction was on display during the all-to-brief Epcot historical display during the 25th anniversary. It was wonderful to see it again but slightly depressing, I want the original Dreamfinder and Figment back!

Wet paint!

The Muppet paint crew is out to lunch, so don't go messing up their paint at Stage 1 while they are gone!

Public Works

The Tomorrowland Public Works Dept. has their logo on all of the trash cans and work areas around the land. It fits perfectly with the retro futuristic, or retro-deco as some have dubbed it, feel around the land.

Grapes, serpents, and lights

The lighting around Germany features this colorful serpant and a bunch of what appear to be grapes. Once again the creative lighting crews score another one in the battle against boring lights!

Club 33

The famous, exclusive club with the address 33 in New Orleans Square has one seriously ornate building number! The etched mirror seems so fitting for all the splendor inside. Mind you I've never actually seen any of it but the photos sure look nice...

Almost time for Christmas

Better start hanging those lights, shopping days are dwindling fast for the Christmas season! Hurry, the sales aren't going to last forever!

And you thought I'd forget April Fool's Day...
