Have you stopped to look at all the carving in the Tree of Life?
The detail and work put into the animals is unbelievable.
Next time you are rushing to It's Tough To Be a Bug, take a few minutes to visit with the aminals.

You can now reserve a spot for you and your party at Wishes!
If you have tried to grab a prime spot for Wishes, you know the hassle! You need to be there early and hold that spot--sometimes with personal security guards.
Now you can use your FP+ and walk up to your viewing location with no wait. Even better, the spot for FP+ viewing is very large with tons of room to spread out. The night we watched Wishes from there, there was no on standing within 10 feet of us. Not the same experience you get on Main Street!

Pirate Party Fireworks on the Disney Fantasy
January 15, 2013

Photographing fireworks at Disney World is one of the things that I look forward to most on our WDW trips. The fireworks displays are really magical and trying to capture the feeling and emotion of those shows is challenging but so much fun!
Here are a few tips for your next trip to WDW.
You MUST have a tripod! Get a locker first thing in the morning and store it, then come back for it before the show. But you have to use a tripod to get fireworks photos.
Location - For your first time shoot Wishes on Main Street. But then look for other locations! ...
One of the first things you think about when remembering your trip to Walt Disney World is what attractions you rode. Unfortunately most people don't have many photos of the family enjoying their favorite attractions. We remember to stop and take a photo with a PhotoPass photographer. We always get photos of us with Mickey and other characters, but how many pictures do you have of the expressions after the first hill on Big Thunder Mountain?
On your next trip, keep your camera handy on the ride!
Make sure you have a good camera strap first! AND make sure you are using that strap!
