Lightning McQueen!

Lightning McQueen!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s edition of the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop that my friend Deb from Focused on the Magic hosts each week!  In this week’s theme, we are looking at Flora, Fauna, and Fantasy from around the parks as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park on Monday, April 22nd, 2013!  I was honored to be selected for one of the years in the 15 Days to 15 Years countdown that my friend Didi from DISTherapy is running.  If you want to read my post, you can click on this post for a link to it.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy my pictures of Walt Disney World that hopefully will give you a good Disney Fix while you anticipate and plan your next Disney vacation!  If you need help with that, I can do that also, just click the image at the bottom of the post to fill out a vacation request form!

In the first picture, I really enjoy the purple flowers that surround Lightning McQueen at the entrance to the World Showcase.  Even though this picture was taken in June, after the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, it still looks incredible, and I enjoyed seeing it!


This picture was taken during the Living with the Land boat ride. I think it is a great combination of fauna, water, and rocks.

My Dreams of Disney

This shot of the swimming pool at Bay Lake Tower is cool to me because of all of the foliage from the trees that are nearby.

I’ve shared this last photo before, but I just really like how incredible the Cast Members are able to recreate Snow White and Dopey over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Thank you for stopping by tonight!  It is important to me that we as bloggers help our nation by giving the grieving a place to go to get away from the hurt, trauma, and fear that is taking place in our country right now.  Of course we are praying for all of those that were killed and injured in the attacks yesterday, and you can always add your prayer requests on our Prayers for the Week post from this past Sunday, but I also want to bring a little light and happiness to a traumatic time right now.  Thank you for stopping by, please click on the button below to see the rest of the entries!  God Bless You, and God Bless the USA!
