Magic, Memories and You with Valentine's Day Tag

Last night the Valentines Day tag debuted for the Magic, Memories and You at the Magic Kingdom.  Sorry that the video was extra shaky.  I was trying to balance everything that I was left holding, but it gets steady early on.  Let me know what you think!

Kodak Picture Spot Project - Part 1

If you've ever visited the Disney parks, you have probably stumbled upon the Kodak Picture Spots.  I've seen them around the parks my whole life.  A few years ago I thought it would be fun to go around and take pictures in the picture spots.  Not only taking pictures in the pictures spots, but getting friends to pose the way the people in the pictures posed.  Yup.  This is my kind of fun. 

I've started working on this project and thought I would take my time gathering up pictures.  With Kodak recently filing for bankruptcy, I felt the need to speed up the project before the picture spots are removed.  Here are some of the picture spots that you can find in Epcot:




As you can see, in order for me to recreate the exact picture in the photo spot, I need the person taking the pictures to understand the concept.  I hope these will get better as this project progresses.

If you're going to be in the parks and want to have some fun taking some of these pictures with me, leave a comment and let me know when you'll be here so we can plan to meet up.  I'll be in the parks this week on my days off meeting up with friends who will be participating so let me know if you're around this week.

Also, if you have taken any of these pictures yourself, go ahead and share them on my Facebook page.  If you're willing to share, I'll even include your picture in a future post.

*Special thanks to Shelley, Chris and Laurie for participating in this weeks pictures.

Week in Review

Now that work has slowed down a bit for me, I was able to get myself into the parks and find more time to write about what's going on in the area.  Here's what's going on in case you missed it!

The affection section has some new additions in the Animal Kingdom Updates.

I got to brag about my new high score and test out Posterous to get you some updates from my phone.

One of the many fun things that I saw at Gatorland in Wildlife Wednesday.

I shared how I welcomed in the new year with the excitement that only Disney can provide at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Even though I missed out on meeting Ridley Pearson, I was able to get my copy of Kingdom Keepers autographed when he visited the Writer's Stop.

I gave you a teaser of the exciting blog posts that are coming featuring life outside the theme parks.

Please take time to catch up on anything that you missed.  If you like what you're reading, please be sure to share with your friends and post about this on Twitter and Facebook.

Exploring the Rest of Central Florida

I know that so far, I've focused on Disney and Universal in this blog, but there is so much more to do in central Florida.  I've been busy exploring many of the lesser known attractions and local parks in the past few months.  I am absolutely in love with this area.  I've got tons of pictures and stories of the following attractions in the coming weeks:

  • Showcase of Citrus in Clermont
  • Wekiwa Springs in Apopka
  • Gatorland in Orlando
  • Boggy Creek Airboat Tours in Kissimmee
  • Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando
Those are just a few of the places I've been to and that I'm planning on writing about.  I've also got tons more Disney and Universal information to share with you too.  I'm so excited with everything I've been able to experience that I can barely contain myself.  I hope that you enjoy hearing about everything else there is to do here too!
