This week, we take you deep into the jungles of Hong Kong Disneyland's Adventureland and then shuttle you instantaneously to the Contemporary Resort in Florida. One minute on the streets of Tokyo Disneyland's World Bazaar and the next on the original Main Street USA.

I huge thank you to TDLFAN for his pictures from 3 Disney parks this week. We aren't quite sure how he manages to get around to all these spots so quickly, but rumor has it that he has a new fangled teleportation device that he snagged from Innoventions

Hong Kong Disneyland

We start our world travels in Hong Kong this week, with an interesting view of Main Street in Chinese New Year regalia.

Eye Spy
Calling all Disney Know-It-Alls! Where in the Disney Universe can you find these little beauties?


Eye Spy #1 - Where in the World?


Eye Spy #2 - A long long time ago in a cave far far away


And here are the answers from last week:

Eye Spy #2 - Disneyland Paris - Main Street (Denise "nbodyhome" Preskitt)


At that's a wrap! Do you feel like a jet setter? You should, you've just racked up a lot of frequent flyer miles in just a few minutes.

    Another awesome Weekend Update. The photo tour through the parks is fabulous. Like Denise, I'm also jealous of TDLFAN.

    Great pictures, but is it just me or has Mickey grown to over 6 feet tall?

    Wow. It looks like Mickey was burned! Did this choice of colors for Mickey's face strike anyone else as odd?

    Is this part of the "Localizing" of HKDL? I saw this today and had to look twice. That is the worst Mickey they have done yet!

    I don't like it. Localizing Mickey to make him tanned is going a bit too far.

    All the photos were great.
