Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s edition of the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop!  As always, a special and sincere thanks goes out to my friend Deb from Focused on the Magic for hosting this incredible series each week.  The theme this week is Flowers and Gardens, in honor, of course, of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival which started on March 6th.  While I haven’t been to the Festival, I’ve got several photos of flowers that I’d like to share with you, so I hope you enjoy them!

I love the imagery here — flowers in the foreground, the Universe of Energy pavilion in the back, and the Tron monorail coming through the shot!

This rose, symbolic of the rose in the movie Beauty and the Beast, was seen by Cindy and I during our trip to Kidani Village at the Animal Kingdom Villas.

Wordless Wednesday – Disney History

One Man's Dream

When it comes to Walt Disney, I confess that I don’t have a whole lot of historical pictures — at least, not in the true sense of what I’m thinking about.  So when I saw that today’s Wordless Wednesday theme is “History”, I really wasn’t sure what I was going to share with all of you.  Then I thought, the best attraction that I know of at Walt Disney World is One Man’s Dream — so I’ll share a picture of that.  So here you go.  Then, as I was typing this, I remembered that the Walt Disney World Railroad contains locomotives that are from the 1910s and 20s, and that is pretty historical in and of itself!  So I’m sharing a picture of one of the locomotives with you.

Walt Disney World Railroad Then, after I thought of this bit of history, I started remembering the history that goes along with the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel.  This carrousel, built in 1917, is truly a historical piece all itself, so here is a picture of it!

Prince Charming Regal Carrousel I guess what I’ve learned from my trip down Disney History Lane is that, when you think about it, the whole park is comprised of history!  So much history, in fact, that it is all around you, just waiting to be discovered!

There is the history of the Magic Kingdom to begin with — Main Street, U.S.A. feels like a trip into the past; Tomorrowland, a trip into the Future; and Liberty Square, a trip into what it must have been like to be a citizen at the birth of a nation in 1776.

Wordless Wednesday – Pinterest Pic

Cinderella Castle

Welcome to another week of Wordless Wednesday!  Today the subject is “Pinterest Pic”, and as always, I would like to thank my good friend Deb from Focused on the Magic for hosting this awesome series!  The My Dreams of Disney Pinterest Page is an expanding one, and has become quite a good traffic feeder to the blog!  Pinterest is a lot of fun, and it is, in my opinion, a great way to look at Disney pictures and get a quick Disney fix, or click on them to read more about a particular subject!

It was really hard coming up with one picture that I thought would be my Pinterest Pic for this post — but in the end I thought Cinderella Castle in Royal Blue or Purple was the pic to go with.  If you click on the picture above, it will take you to my Pinterest Pin for this picture, and from there you can go see the rest of the pictures I have displayed!

Thanks for stopping by this week!  To see the rest of the entries for this week’s post, please click on the button below to head on over to Focused on the Magic!  Thanks, and make it a Disney Day (or night!)

Wordless Wednesday – November Calendar Shot!

Bald Eagle, Main Street Electrical Parade, Magic Kingdom, Veterans Day

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Wordless Wednesday post!  Today’s theme is the November Calendar Shot, and I personally want to welcome back Deb from Focused on the Magic!  Deb is the host of this great series, and last week she was unable to put it on because of Hurricane Sandy issues, but those of us that know and love her did what we could to help and support her and the others in the Northeast that were affected.  We are still praying for all of you that are without power and homes and other essentials, and for those of you back on your feet, we’re giving praise to God for that as well!

The November calendar shot is special to me because of Veterans Day, so I thought, what better way of saying thanks to our troops in a Disney way then by sharing my picture of the Bald Eagle you find at the end of the Main Street Electrical Parade!  I really enjoy this parade, so I want to share some other photos as well, but none of them are as good as the one at the top to me.  What do you think, though?  Do any of these beat the one at the top?  Let me know in the comments, please, and thanks for stopping by!
