The Big Bunny

Saturday 23 September at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Alighting from the Courtesy Tram at 10:41 a.m.

And—to me, anyway—these Courtesy Trams are new.

Onward to the Oasis.

Yes, Irma was here.

But the Tree of Life is still living. Or at least standing.

Marsupial Meet-Up thereunder.

plus a turkey in the straw

The usual flamboyance.

Meanwhile, in Pandora-The World of Avatar, all floating mountains are intact.

Out-of-this-world flora.

On the path from Pandora to Africa.

Looking back from Harambe to the path to Pandora.

Welcome to Harambe.

port of East Africa

Obligatory Everest-in-the-distance shot.

Ephippiorhynchus senegalensis, a perennial favorite of mine.

Rafiki welcomes you to his Planet Watch.

Where it’s National My Bunny Is Bigger Than Your Bunny Day.

At least I was smart enough not to test this

are you smarter than a box turtle?

They say a little reptilia squamata teiidae dracaena goes a long way…

Caiman Lizard

Back in Harambe, the Nice Try Wall at the Wildlife Express Station.

post no bills

For me, the décor in the retail establishments is usually more appealing than most of the merchandise.

On the path from Africa to Asia. Because I know you want to see the Tree of Life partially obstructed by foreground flora.


prayer flags

At Flame Tree Barbecue, I have thoughtfully done some cropping to protect the identity of a family that is about to lose part of their lunch, if this guy’s plan works out.

Who knows why this tee is offered in child sizes only…

That’s Another Wrap

Disney’s Hollywood Studios: The Entrance. At 11:23 a.m. today. Although the iPhone prefers to focus on the tree leaves.

92ºF feels like 104ºF


"Don't make me turn this car around."


Today I am here to bid farewell to the Great Movie Ride.

The Great Movie RideLast day: Sunday 13 August 2017

The Ultimate Celebration of Classic Movies

Best enjoyed with a FastPass+.

Not a real entrance.

Olivia and Errol discuss their plans for after the 13th of August.

Footlight Parade (1933)

the Tombstone Epitaph

In space, no-one can take a picture that isn’t either blurry or washed out by a sudden burst of scary light.

Alien (1979)

That thing has a lid on it for a reason.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

I told you what would happen if you disturbed the treasure of the god, unbeliever.

Tarzan, the Ape Man (1932)

Rick: We’ll always have the Great Movie Ride.

A scorching drive home begins in the Music parking lot, row 61.

Extinction for a thousand, Alex

Extinction Comes to the Universe of Energylast day: 13 August 2017

I am expressing my way from one park to another today, beginning with arrival at the  Magic Kingdom parking lot around 8:15 this morning. Walking toward the Transportation and Ticket Center…

Walking toward the Transportation and Ticket Center

My ride (the Richard F Irvine) across the lagoon arrives at 8:27.

Ferry to Magic Kingdom

A safe crossing has been effected at 8:40.

Docking at Magic Kingdom

And it’s a beautiful morning on Main Street Square.

While I wait for the Harmony Barber Shop to open next to the Car Barn, the Main Street Transportation Company waits for the signal to start transporting.

Following my tonsorial tune-up, I head over to Epcot to dream along with Ellen one last time before her Energy Adventure joins the Attractions of YesterWorld.

The Universe of Energy

I am feeling fragmented by the idea of never experiencing this attraction again after today.

feeling fragmented

The kid sitting next to me today is a compulsive foot/leg bouncer, so most of the photos I take are spoiled by shake. Sigh. Wish we could have dropped him off to visit with this guy:

just a dinosaur

Whatever they’ve been arguing about for the last thirty-five years is irrelevant now.

dino debate

This looks like where Donald, Mike, Mitch, and Paul will be spending some endless time. When the time comes.

What fresh hell is this?

She just wanted to have fun.


If you would like to have your own energy nightmare, place a self-addressed, stamped envelope under your pillow, or check us out on the web at

empty theatre

But time and the monorail march on.

Monorailing past the UoE

I’ll always have my memories to wear, though.

the farewell t shirt

I now scoot over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios where the standby line for the Great Movie Ride, also counting down to extinction, is way too long and too much of it is in the sun for me. So after lunching in the ABC Commissary on a

Mediterranean Salad

which is delicious with its 20% Annual Passholder discount, I return to the TTC whence I came.

(Thanks to the many jerks with no food who are occupying tables as they wait for their fellow perps to bring it, I must dine on a bench with my tray on my lap. I send a loud raspberry in their general direction.)
