I have no defense for this. You go.
All riiiiiiiiight! It’s time once again for my absolute favorite kind of post – the WALT DISNEY WORLD PHOTO RECAP!
I’m sure you recall that a mere few weeks ago I was traipsing about the most magical place on earth, being thoroughly happy to be alive. I tweeted merrily along the entire way, so you can read back through that if you like – there are some additional pictures to be had in that way. Below is the main collection, and as always, I put a distinct emphasis on music related shots, but I’ve decided to throw a fair number of just-because-I-feel-like-it pics too. Because who doesn’t want to maximize the amount of WDW in their lives? THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT.
For example, allow me to clue you in on step one of successful Disney packing: do NOT tell your cat you’re doing it.
Okay, let’s get down to the music business. Have I mentioned me debilitating addiction to The Festival of the Lion King? It’s madness. I can’t go without it. Also a monkey acrobat rapped me on the forehead.
Speaking of musical productions, here’s the one for Finding Nemo! The puppets are incredibly well done.
There are you are, strolling through the Animal Kingdom, minding your own business, when all the sudden you walk straight into a Bollywood dance lesson.
Pianist at the Grand Floridian – very classy.
These colorfully attired individuals perform a song-and-dance routine all the way down Main Street.
I’ve mentioned this calliope from The Haunted Mansion before, but this is a MUCH better shot of it. Who here plays the squidpipes?
Percussion… strings… winds… WORDS.
Fantasmic includes clips from Mussourgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain!
A piece of historical recording equipment from the Aerosmith Rock ‘n Roller Coaster. I strongly encourage you to click on the larger image and read the label.
Why, this set from the Streets of America almost looks real!
Apropos of very little, we are princesses.
Apropos of even less, this is the most elegant and refined I will ever be. That’s it. I’m tapped out.
This Mission: Space console picture is here just so I can shout FIRE IN THE HOLE!!!!!!
Speaking of fire in the hole, I successfully finished the Princess Half Marathon! My time wasn’t that great (this was tweeted as I went), but hey, done is done! If you’re pondering your own half marathon, I cannot recommend it enough, and it was HIGHLY musical – at mile 2 we had a marching band, at mile 4 a taiko drumming group, at mile 7 an accordion ensemble of all things, and at mile 12 (this is my favorite) a gospel choir. Just to get you to the finish, you know. AWESOME.
This is the happiest girl in the world.
And this is the happiest goat.
Okay, that’s it for now!
A violist just got plain fed up. He was sick of the jokes and the lack of respect, and he decided it was time to switch to a different instrument. So he went down to the local music store and browsed around. He wanted something so far removed from the viola that no one would ever remember he had played such a silly thing. After much deliberation he finally settled on it — a big old accordion sitting in the corner.
It seemed like a big improvement to the violist, so he went over to the shopkeeper. “Hi,” he said. “I’d like to buy the big accordion in the corner over there.”
