Art of Animation Resort, Walt Disney World
The Art of Animation Resort at Walt Disney World is a very cool place to explore. There are three themed sections to the resort; The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Cars. Personally, I love the Cars area. Not only is it a great place for my photography, it is an amazing area to explore all the details Disney included. My only regret in this post is I missed one character, Sarge. Sorry buddy, next time… 🙂

I originally had a different post planned for today. June 14th is Flag Day in the United States. I had a picture from the Hall of Flags in the American Adventure in Epcot at Walt Disney World. I’ll still post that picture even though I stole the idea from another Disney photographer. Anyway…
Last night I received a message from a friend. This is a friend I met back in October 2013 at my first Walt Disney World photographer’s meet-up. We have been close since the first “Hi!”. Natasha and her husband Steve live a few states away but together we helped each other improve our photography via the web. Instant messaging, emails and Facebook posts kept us together. We would come up with a photo theme each week and post three pics of our interpretation of the theme. It was a great way to learn and explore. It really got me out and about as well as to actually “think” about my images.
Life sometimes gets in the way and our weekly challenges were set aside but the friendship has remained. One of these days we will all meet up again in our shared happy place. Well, the reason for this long intro, Natasha has a GoFundMe page to raise money to help her Mom take her brother to Walt Disney World. You can read more about it here: Driving Mr. Joel I would really appreciate any help in spreading the word about this project to bring the Disney magic to someone special. Thanks!
Oh, and here is the Flag Day pic!
I think I will always walk around Future World in Epcot looking for interesting views of the monorails. I can’t help myself. I will wait. I will plan. And I will wait some more. It is part of my fun while I am in the park.
This Monorail Monday image is of Monorail Green gliding through Future World in front of a few pretty big flowers. When I spotted the these flowers on the grassy knoll before Mission: Space I knew a monorail image would not be far behind. My wait was only seven minutes for this opportunity to present itself. Usually my biggest challenge is getting a fast enough shutter speed to freeze the monorail.
