Big Disneyland fan. I try to visit the Parks 3 or 4 times a month either solo or with my family. I'm very thankful that Walt's dreams came true.

Mickey appears happy even with that pesky bird nearby. Either he doesn't notice or he just doesn't consider him a problem.

I want to share this photo of Mr. Toad's house taken on the Storybook Canal Boats. The really fine details are hard to see and only really appreciated when you can go back take a good look at the photos. If you zoom in on the front entry, look at the light fixtures, flowers on either side of the door, along with the door mat. Best of all, there is an umbrella leaning against the wall. This is just  More...

I didn't get a chance to do this my first trip so I'm really looking forward to getting to see all these wonderful little details in July  - tracsant  1151.1 #2 7:10PM

This is a collection of photos taken in Radiator Springs Curios. The attention to detail and theming always makes me smile.

Did you notice the Snowman snow globe from the Pixar short Knick Knack? - CM_Shadowgamer  2440.3 #49 12:45PM
I saw the snow globes but didn't understand the significance or tie-in. That takes it to another level beyond the obvious. Thank you for pointing that out. I'm sure other MW'rs will appreciate it too. You're awesome! - grumpypapa  3175.7 #38 1:12PM

I love this point in the queue. I think it's partly because you can see everyone's excitement and you know your turn in the seat is almost here!

It used to be safe before the blue heron took over, at least he's waiting patiently at the back of the line  - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1615.1 #92 10:37AM
Unfortunately, he doesn't meet the minimum height requirements.Β I'm not sure why he's there. It can't be for the baby ducks. - grumpypapa  3175.7 #38 11:03AM
