My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!
Disney's Winter Summerland photographed in November 2008:
This wonderfully designed miniature golf course echoes the unique theme of the adjacent Blizzard Beach water park, conceived as a freak snowy storm that has brought an arctic landscape to subtropical Florida. In this case, two 18-hole courses celebrate Santa Claus and the vacation spot he has created for his elves with the Winter Course and its snowy features and the Summer course and its sandy features; all being hybrids of Christmas and beach and chilly Northern and Disney themes.
The small amenity building between the two courses is housed in this sleigh-pulled trailer!
