This past December, we spent a week in Disney World, because my daughter's Pop Warner Cheer Squad competed for the National Championship. Not that I really need a reason to go ;-)

While waiting for our room to be ready at Port Orleans Riverside, we spent the day at Epcot.

1) My daughters, turning the table on me just as we entered the park:

2)One of the street performers in Italy, explaining that she was La Befana, the good witch that brings gifts to children on the Epiphany:

3)Welcome To Mexico!

4)Tomb Warriors - A minature recreation of the Terracotta Warriors, an eight thousand strong underground army buried in front of the Emperor Qinshihuang's tomb to defend him in the afterlife at the EPCOT Center's China Pavilion.

5) Seagulls are everywhere ;-)

6)Matsuriza is a percussion troupe that performs a traditional Japanese drum show at the Japan Pavilion

7)Teddy Roosevelt in The American Experience.

I can't say enough good things about this show. Yes, I wish it could have been longer, but my wife and I walked out of there with such a feeling of pride. Definitely recommended.

8)Spaceship Earth

This is an example of VR coming to save the day. Everyone else was tired, and wanting to go back to the room, and I was just able to take a quick snap hand held before rushing off to the bus with the others. ISO 1600 @ 1/20 with the Nikkor 16-85:
