December on Photographing Disney.

I thought that it would be a cool thing to do an Advent Calendar on Photographing Disney starting on December the 1st until Christmas Day. Then in January I thought that I would run a series on Photography Tips for taking cool photos in the Disney Parks. I would like to make the blog fun and useful. If anyone has any suggestions then please feel free to post a comment. Cheers Larry.

Let the Train take the Strain.

A little tip. We were in the new part of Fantasyland and had a Fast Pass for Big Thunder Mountain, tired and thinking of not going to use it as it's a long walk. We got the idea to walk down to the Railway Station at Storybookland and we took the train over there. Had a 15 minute sit down and enjoyed the train ride. Problem solved. Plus I love to do as many forms of WDW transportation as I can on each trip. Wooooo All Aboard. Last Call for the Walt Disney Railroad!!

Fantasia Mickey

One of the great things to see at Walt Disney World are the great displays that they do for the Garden Festival, but they are there at other times too. Check this out from the entrance of Disney's Hollywood Studios. This was replaced by a Christmas tree just over a week ago.

Moody Shot of the Castle Show.

This was such a colorful show, but it was a bit of a gloomy day so I've tried to capture it in a grainy moody kind of way. Still it was a pretty neat show to watch. I don't usually watch the shows at the castle but having a reason to be there i.e. to photograph the show it gave me a chance to do something different.

Geodetic sphere and tree.

I remember this photo was one I took after a very long day at Epcot it was during the Food and Wine Festival and I had snacked quite a lot and I was walking on a couple of bloody stumps. Still the silhouette caught my eye so I stopped for a moment to catch it for prosperity.

Tokyo Monorail Window

This is the view on a rather gloomy day out of the wonderful Mickey head windows on the Tokyo Disney Monorail. The view is of the Hotel Mirracosta.

Security tougher at WDW these days.

I was quite shocked to find that Storm Troopers were now doing security checks at the enterance to the Disney Parks, this guy told me to put my camera down and open my bag. I managed to get this illicit shot before I put the camera away.

Help there's a Dinosaur Running Amok in the Hollywood Studios!

I found this Dinosaur wandering around Disney's Hollywood Studios the other day, I'm not sure what she is called. I decided to name her Gertie. It's amazing what you can find in Hollywood.

Illuminations Reflections of Earth.

One of my very favorite things at the end of a WDW day is to go and camp out at Epcot to watch Illuminations. This was taken from my little spot to watch, the Cantina San Angel. A tip is get there at least an hour before or you have no chance of a table.

Discovery Island.

Well we have just arrived back home from our wonderful week at Walt Disney World. I took over 2000 photos so hopefully I have some material for the blog for a little while. This is Discovery Island taken from the dock at the Wilderness Lodge, the colors are just starting to turn and it looked very beautiful.

Enjoying the Show.

This little girl on her daddy's back was really enjoying the Castle Show today and getting a comfy seat and great view too.

The other carousel at Walt Disney World.

Took this photo this evening at Downtown Disney, we went to Wolfgang Puck's to eat. It's a great little secret that the Express does the dining plan and it's great value and yummy food. Love this little carousel.

Moody Sky.

It was a lovely moody sky day when I was in the Magic Kingdom last, I've always enjoyed travelling around the Island on the Steam Boat. I think she looks majestic with the darker sky.

Paula and Wes on Big Thunder.

A few days ago I posted a photo of Paula and Wes on Big Thunder, I thought it would be fun to update it so here is a snap I took at the Magic Kingdom this week.

Tumble Monkeys

Spent the morning at Animal Kingdom, I love the work that they put into making the theater look great from the outside. I love the show and I really love the tumble monkeys, mind you taking a decent photo of them is not the easiest thing in the world. I hope you like this one.
Had a great day today in the Magic Kingdom, it's five in the morning so I'm way too tired to tell you all about it.

Almost time to set off.

Well, just two days to go. I've got so much to do to get ready for the trip to Walt Disney World. We are going with Wes and Paula and it looks like they may have set off for the airport already. Seems like they are going by train.

Old Blue.

Well another day nearer our trip. I'm going to write a live trip report all being well and with God's grace. It's going to be posted on Disboards.com and Mouseplanet.com. I started off as a trip report writer about 14 years ago. I've always loved taking photos at Disney but my true love is writing about it all. So I'm rather excited to be able to go again this month, get a chance to photograph for this blog and to write for my chums in the trip report world.

All Roads Jammed

Well I'm not counting my chickens before they are hatched. I famously started to countdown to a trip to Disney World on here, and it didn't happen. But hopefully God willing, we are planning to go to Disney next Saturday. I'm rather in need of a photo expidition to come and get some more Disney Photos for this very blog. So wish me luck and if you see me there say "Hi."
