    Aww, sorry it's over now. But thanks so much for sharing!

    We were on the 3rd floor in that building, on the other side so that we could see the 80's Pac Man buildings from our window. So fun!

    This is what my room overlooked . . .



    No complaints here. I live in the desert.

    I'm back home now and just a bit tired. I have a bunch more pics to post before the weekend's out (I guess that would mean tomorrow ), most of the pics aren't even from FuzzyShot. Sleep first.

    I'll see you tomorrow

    Thanks for the quick trip report Disneytim! While I'm not a golfer, I enjoyed the photos from the golf course. I don't think I've seen many shots from the WDW courses before, so these were really interesting to look at. Thanks so much for posting them here!

    Re: Disneytim's WDW Golf Adventure . . . in Kinda Sorta Real Time

    FuzzyShot highlights from Friday . . .

    I had an early start on the 9-hole walking course at Oak Trail. It's situated between the Palm and Magnolia courses at Shades of Green:









    The nice thing about Oak Trail is, with so many things to do at WDW, it's hard to set aside 4 1/2 to 5 hours to play 18 holes of golf (unless you're a total golf freak like me). Taking my time, and with not a lot of people on the course, I finished the nine holes in a little over two hours. That gave me about an hour to kill before playing Magnolia. I cleaned up, grabbed a hot dog at the snack bar and took it easy.

    Inside the clubhouse is the Wall of Champions, showing past winners of PGA tournaments hosted by Disney. Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have both won here:



    Time to tee off . . . .

    The first tee at Magnolia. All four in my group pulled our tee shots into this lovely water hazard. Not an auspicious start.



    Golf is a cruel game:



    Yes that's my ball. Yes it really landed there.

    Like Oak Trail and the Palm, though, the Magnolia is a beautiful course:





    You can see the Grand Floridian from the 17th fairway:



    The Polynesian too:



    More golf course pics from the "good camera" . . .

    Proof that not all my shots were bad. My approach to the 6th green on Oak Trail landed below and right of the pin:



    Golf is for the birds:



    A few more shots from the Magnolia:



    Mousketee box:











    There's plenty of wildlife on the Disney courses. I saw quite a few rabbits, raccoons and deer. If I needed any reminder I was in Florida, though, I got it when I met one of the residents of the water hazard near the 16th green:



    More pictures to come . . .

    Ooh, that last picture is scary!

    The rest, though, gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. It makes me want to go play golf.

    You forgot about the part where you also drink beer.

    You two can caddy for me anytime.

    Re: Disneytim's WDW Golf Adventure . . . in Kinda Sorta Real Time

    After golf, I went back to the hotel, cleaned up and caught the shuttle to Epcot . . .



    . . . which reminded me of golf (and now makes me think about D-Mom's caddy outfit ).

    The Food & Wine Festival was getting underway. Good eats tonight.



    First things first, though. I had to pay a visit to Nemo & Friends:





    It was my first time on the ride-through portion of the attraction with the Finding Nemo characters. I was definitely impressed, even moreso than I was on the Nemo Subs at DL. In the scaled-down Epcot version, the effects seem to work even better.



    Journey Into Imagination has always been a favorite of mine going back to the Dreamfinder days . . .



    . . . I didn't even mind when it changed to the Imagination Institute . . .



    . . . but the audio currently on the ride is in need of some serious work. The sound levels were too low at times and other times was out of sync with the ride vehicles. Bad show Disney.



    Or maybe it was just a Figment of my imagination.

    Mission Space is still one Disney's best attractions.



    It has one of the most attractive show buildings and is perfectly themed from start to finish:






    The coffee cup is a nice touch.



    Zooming around Earth . . .



    . . . on our way to Mars:




    Did I mention the good eats?

    The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival kicked off on Friday with culinary treats from around the world. Time didn't permit me to sample all the kiosks (which is probably a good thing considering the wine ), but I did enjoy a few South American goodies. I highly recommend the beef empanadas (a spicy meat pie) from Chile:



    Among the wines I sampled, I recommend the Bodega Norton Reserva Cabernet from Argentina. Excellent!

    As I worked my way through the foodfest, IllumiNations started on the World Showcase Lagoon. This is the perfect time to load up on more food--the lines are suddenly way shorter.





    The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival runs through November 6th.

    Why is that Florida people always tell desert people that there are not near the amount of gators we think and yet every time one of the desert folk go out there a gator is spotted?

    Great pictures and report.

    I dunno, maybe us out-of-towners just look tastier.


    I had a great time posting (almost) live pics on FuzzyShot and being able to share them with friends and family, but there's a lot to be said for higher resolution shots. Here are a bunch of pics using my Kodak EasyShare Z740. I've had it for a number of years now and it's outlasted the Canon and Olympus cameras that came before it combined.

    The Magic Kingdom gearing up for Halloween:




    Obligatory castle shot:


    Tomorrowland's Astro Orbiter:




    Strolling through Fantasyland:
