A Post Full Of Happy: Walt Disney World In Pictures

EPCOT at Walt Disney World


Two weeks ago I got to run the Princess Half Marathon at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.   I brought my Canon Rebel T2i with us so I could take some time shooting in new environments because I still haven’t mastered the art of the DSLR and usually am fumbling through settings. What better place to practice than Disney World?

It’s true, I have a happy place..it’s Japan in EPCOT.  Second to that is the view right next to Cinderella’s castle in Magic Kingdom.  I adore everything about EPCOT and it’s my favorite park.  When I see that big shiny ball from the plane, I know it’s a brand new day to attempt to drink around the world (and fail) one more time – but hey, it’s the journey that matters right?


Domo And Me At EPCOT Japan


If you didn’t know, I have a thing for Domo (See here and here).  Domo was the first meme I can recall- back before memes were memes and the internet made that familiar screechy robot noise.  When I go to EPCOT Japan, I have to see what new Domo goodies they have to spend my monies on since their Sailor Moon collection is well, a bit lacking.

I get giddy around Pickles The Frog, Hello Kitty and all the solar powered cute things they have around.  It takes great restraint not to buy a zillion sushi shaped erasers and more kawaii than I can feasibly carry back to the hotel room.  Japan has had my heart and my love for cuteness is on par with Japan’s kawaii culture. I still haven’t been to Japan, so for now, I lurk at Disney.

My Happy Place- EPCOT Japan at Walt Disney World

I’m not sure what those Hello Kitty things were and still regret that I didn’t buy those tea cups from the shop….the should cup should be mine.  Hopefully it’ll still be there next time around?

EPCOT for the Princess Half Marathon

I have yet to see the Flower And Garden Festival at EPCOT, but they gussy everything up for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend so the color was vivid at EPCOT, truly spring comes to life!

Anyone else remember the Electrical Parade as a kid? Well, I hadn’t seen it since I was a kid at Disneyland!

Love At Magic Kingdom - Dumbo at Walt Disney World

Of course, I have to end this post with a shot of the fireworks.  I took so many I could have created my own animated gif.

Magic Kingdom Fireworks… awww.


Oh wait… I did.



And then there was this one of fiancé.  Enjoy.



May the gifs be with you.

    I love every picture & I love that you ran that half marathon. I’ve always wanted to do a run at Disney. I will forever love Disney.

  3. I had such a fun weekend at Disney too!
    We didn’t end up doing anything in the park, but next time I REALLY want to go to Epcot!! It looks so neat.

  4. Eeek!! I love ALL things Disney, but EPCOT has always been my favorite. I think that is why I have been to so many countries in real life too. EPCOT in my younger years made me want to see all the countries!

    I need to learn how to make a GIF, I have so many firework pictures . . .

  5. LOVE these pictures — especially the GIFs! I haven’t been to Disney since I was little, but your pics are making me want to go so badly. Maybe when the debt is gone? 🙂
