I wrote before about a pair of bikes I saw in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They were leaning against a building and I took a picture on film. Later I saw what I thought were the same two bikes in a different location and took a digital picture.
I needed to see the film to answer the burning questions. Was I mistaken and they were different bikes? Were they the same bikes and I was mistaken about the different locations? Did I screw up the film shots and end up with an illegible blob of gross on the film?
Let us answer these questions at last!
The digital pic:
The film pic:
Yup, different bikes and different locations. I was wrong, as usual.
It’s been a while, but here’s some more Florida! Still waiting for the film to come back. I was hoping I’d have the scans today but maybe tomorrow? We’ll see. These are from our full day at Epcot. Most of which was spent in the World Showcase. There was talk of drinking around the world, but a stomach bug got in the way of that plan.
We were going to stay for the fireworks but it was friggin’ cold. Bellana stuck it out, but the rest of us bolted.
On January 9th we started the day at Magic Kingdom, then went back to the hotel to flake out for a while. That was the last recap post. That night we went back to Magic Kingdom for the fireworks show and stayed for an after hours event. The event required a separate ticket and took place after the park closed. That means the joint was virtually empty. We did a ton of rides with little to no wait. It was awesome.
Here are a ton of pointless photos.
That’s it. The next post will bring us back to Epcot and I think it’s going to be a long one. Lots of pictures from the last stop at Epcot. After that there will be another day at Hollywood Studios and then I think that’s it.
We went to Magic Kingdom in the morning then we went back to the hotel to rest up then we went back to Magic Kingdom for an after hours event. This post ends at the resting up at the hotel thing. Enjoy.
Next up is Magic Kingdom at night including fireworks.
I was going to make this post everything from our first day at Hollywood Studios. Unfortunately there are about 10 million pictures from that day so I am just going with Hollywood Studios before sunset. I don’t know what that means for the next post, but frankly I don’t care right now.
I started with the film camera and switched to digital when we got to Galaxy’s Edge. I swapped back and forth a couple of times, but it was mostly digital from that point on. Here we go… there are going to be a lot of pictures here.
And that’s where we’ll leave it for now. The next post will be after the sun went down, and our breakfast with Mickey the next morning. Also, maybe some more Magic Kingdom as well. We’ll see.
This one is going to WAY over do it. You’ve been warned.
Our first visit to Magic Kingdom was first thing in the morning and we were shocked at how packed it was. We stayed for a couple of hours and then went back to the hotel for a while. My picture taking plan was to start with film and switch to digital when I burned through one roll. As it turns out, we weren’t in the park long enough for me to take 36 pictures on film so I don’t have any digital pics from that morning.
When we went back after dark though… I really went nuts. My YouTube schooling has taught me to keep the ISO setting as low as I can when using manual mode. I was struggling a little at night so I said screw it and set the ISO to auto, and then eventually just switched to auto mode and WOW can this new camera handle lights at night. It was crazy, so I went crazy with it. I took soooo many pictures. Here are mountains of them.
There was another night visit to Magic Kingdom and there will be a ton from that visit. Next up though will be Hollywood Studios. We got there early and stayed until they closed so there will be a ton of pics, including a bunch at night. I think. I might do something else instead, but that’s what I’m thinking right now.
This installment of the Florida Recap Post series isn’t terribly exciting. It’s just a few spots around The Riviera hotel, the Skyliner, The Caribbean Beach resort, and the Art of Animation resort. In short, it started with us just hanging around, and turned into us riding the Skyliner and just getting off at random spots.
Here is the second in an open ended series of Disney trip recaps. This one will cover our one stop at Animal Kingdom where we discovered that our least favorite park can be pretty fantastic when the temperatures outside are in the 70’s instead of the high 90’s. It made a huge difference.
I took a lot of pictures that day so… here’s a shit load of them. There is little actual significance to any of these.
The next post is either going to be from the resort, as well as a brief little resort hopping jaunt that Jen and I went on, or it will be Magic Kingdom at night… or both.
