Wordless Wednesday | Castles in the Sky

Welcome to The Wordless and Almost Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week we get together to blog hop, link up and share our Wordless Wednesday or Almost Wordless Wednesday, Disney travel related picture posts.

Well this has been quite a week! Hurricane Irma has come and gone. So long Irma we are very happy to see you go!
The theme for this week's Wordless Wednesday is Castles in the Sky.
I just thought that sounded more poetic than Castles. Also, there is a song from the 70's with that phrase in it that I cannot remember. Paul would know. He was a lyrics wizard. Google is just turning up a more recent song. I will keep digging.

Do you ever play "Finish the Disney Lyrics" game or "Name that Disney Tune" by humming a song to see who can guess it first? It's fun while standing on a long line. Sometimes the people around us join in. It makes the time go quickly.

I shot this on our Christmas trip to Walt Disney World last year. I just liked the way Main Street shines brightly through the arch, the window in the tower and the contrast of Cinderella Castle against the night sky.

September Wordless Wednesday Flashback

Welcome to The Wordless and Almost Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week we get together to blog hop, link up and share our Wordless Wednesday or Almost Wordless Wednesday, Disney travel related picture posts.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of our friends in the path of hurricane Irma that is going to hit sometime this weekend. Stay safe!
The theme for this week's Wordless Wednesday is "your September calendar shot". Of course I had to share a Food and Wine Festival shot, lol.
Last year was our memorial trip and very emotional. I took some great shots but I thought I'd share this collage because Paul had such a good time on this trip. I think one of the highlights for him was the wine tasting seminars. He gained a lot of helpful tips on growing our wine grapes that came in handy.
Sugar Ray will be performing on our upcoming trip in September too. Can't wait!

Last year the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival  was a gastronomical good time. 2017 looks like it will be even better (if that's possible) because it is also Epcot's 35th Anniversary Celebration on Oct. 1st. I am booked and ready. I can't wait!
We had so much fun sipping and tasting our way around the World Showcase, rocking out to the concerts and learning at the seminars. Remy joined us in France as our trip mascot last year providing giggles between bites and long queues.

"Your calendar Shot" is the theme for this week.
I hope your month is off to a bang. Mine certainly is! There was a spectacular Balloon Festival last weekend that had hot air balloons flying over our house under beautiful blue skies. My garden is producing peppers and cucumbers at a rapid rate. Tomatoes are just about to come in. And I got an blogging opportunity that I couldn't pass up. More to come on that...

Wordless Wednesday | The Great Movie Ride

Hi over there!
Welcome to the latest edition of The Wordless and Almost Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week we get together to blog hop, link up and share our #DisneySide Wordless Wednesday or Almost Wordless Wednesday, Disney related picture posts.

Nostalgia is the theme for this week.

One of my favorite attractions since it's opening day in 1989, The Great Movie Ride inside the Chinese Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios aka Disney's MGM Studios will take it's last journey August 13, 2017. 

According to Wikipedia. The Great Movie Ride directly inspired the creation of Disney's Hollywood Studios. In a Walt Disney Imagineering book, it was revealed that The Great Movie Ride was actually going to be the main attraction in a show business themed pavilion at Epcot

I have a wealth of wonderful memories wrapped up in The Great Movie Ride. It was my must do attraction each visit. I loved the theme, the story and the photographic challenge it presented me every time.
I'll add more pictures and video as I go through them. These are some shots of my favorite scenes.
 

Do you have a favorite scene?
