Kusafiri Coffee Shop

The Kusafari Coffee Shop and Bakery beckons weary travelers on their morning sprint to Kilimanjaro Safaris with Kahawa (coffee), Chai (tea), and Maandazi (sweet fried dough). The weary New Year's Eve revelers might need to that to stay awake tonight or recover tomorrow.

Straight from the intro sequences in the old movie shorts comes Pluto on Mickey's Fun Wheel.

Starport loading bays

The two loading bays at Space Mountain are now Alpha and Omega - a new (relatively) feature from the recent refurbishment. And I certainly can dig the new Starport logo!

Creature Comforts

This colorful sign marks the entrance to the Creature Comforts store on Discovery Island, whose interior is every bit as whimsical as the sign out front...

Peace on Earth

A merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates and Peace on Earth to everyone, everywhere...

National Parks Christmas

Christmas at Yellowstone might be cold but spending it at the Wilderness Lodge sure isn't!

Mickey Wreaths

Who doesn't want to have one of these hanging from their front door? They look fantastic as they line Main Street...

Santa Police?

Santa is everywhere - even the parking police it seems! A big light-up Santa has been spotted in recent years in the parking cops' little cruiser in the alley behind the Streets of America, hopefully you plugged that meter or you're getting coal this year...

Train around the tree

Every good Christmas tree needs a train and the Magic Kingdom is no different - so a Carolwood and Pacific train does the honors this year.

Calling Santa...

Frosty seems to be calling Santa from the Chinatown payphone in the Streets of America!

Elephants fly...

A couple years ago banners such as this one decorated the Disneyland Resort - with a team of flying elephants Santa could really make good time!

A big easy Christmas

Holiday season at the resorts is just as much fun as at the parks, esp. if you are at one that really decks the halls. The Port Orleans French Quarter brings you a jazzy little Christmas with all sorts of decorations with a New Orleans theme...

David E Davies Funeral Director

It is only fitting that Jack decorates the funeral directors front yard on the Streets of America...

Stitch decorates...

This year Stitch is stringing the lights at Innoventions West - both on the tree and himself it appears. The 2010 topiary displays in Epcot were a little more subdued than past years but what displays they had were up to the usual standards...

...Two shiny aluminum trees and one red gas can...

Only in a place like Chester and Hester's in Animal Kingdom will you find a gas can in with the tacky Christmas trees...

Critter Country Christmas

After a week hiatus and a blizzard we're back with Christmas photos! Today - Critter Country. These guys know how to throw a great country holiday event and have garland and wreaths all over their land, all with a natural and homey touch.

Mme. Leota's

Need anything to assist your contact with the other side? Madame Leota can help and her cart sits right outside the exit to the Haunted Mansion...

And welcome to Walt Disney's Enchanged Tiki Room. This sign still hangs over the entrance to the classic attraction - it is interesting that it specifically calls it Walt Disney's, in part because (for a while) he personally owned the attraction through WED vs. the Walt Disney Company. Just one of those interesting tidbits of the past...
