When I look at this picture all I can think is how I wish I was right there, right now!
PHOTO TIP: Take some pictures while waiting for your ride vehicle, train, or monorail. This is the most liked picture on our Facebook page and it was simply a girl waiting for her ride into Frontierland! ;)

So here is how it works:
1. Email your best Disney Parks hidden mickey picture to firstname.lastname@example.org and with your attachment include how you would like your name viewed (Maybe a nickname or something like "Melissa P. from New York" to be internet safe.) Also include where your Hidden Mickey is located in the parks You will have about a week to send pictures from today until midnight January 31st.
2. On February 1st, head over to our Facebook page where you will find the "Hidden Mickey Challenge 2012" album. Guess where each Hidden Mickey in the album is located. In the evening on Friday, February 3rd I will announce via the Facebook page that the contest is closed and tally the number of correct answers. If your photo stumped the most people YOU WIN!
3. There may be other small prizes for things like the person who guesses the most correct or the person who guesses a particularly difficult one right so keep your eye out!
In any case, I am super excited about this and hope you all will join in the fun!
Can't wait to see all your Hidden Mickeys!

I made my husband pose for this last year and I think it says it all. Epcot is love and no amount of hand hearts could properly complete this little photo tour.
PHOTO TIP: Take advantage of the forced perspective. This was inspired by watching people leaning on, holding up, eatings, and kicking Spaceship Earth!
My favorite shopping can be found near the Innoventions pavilion at Mouse Gears! They offer a great selection of not just Epcot merchandise but Walt Disney World merchandise as well as offer the Disney Visa Cardmember discount! I often hit this as my last shop if I can't make it out to Downtown for some last minute souvenirs and gifts!
PHOTO TIP: Use props! I wish I had discovered this idea sooner since I buy a different stufftee each trip! Use your new vinyl or toy to add a little cute to your otherwise landscape or shop shot!

And last but certainly not least on this visit to World Showcase is the Canada pavilion. Home to my favorite beer (Moosehead) and full of photo ops! Be sure to walk all the way back to check out the "mountains" and if you can snag a ressie to Le Cellier I highly recommend it!

Not sure if streetmosphere is the technical Disney term for the great shows and performers features in all the World Showcase pavilions but these guys are my favorite of ALL! Don't miss this show next time you are heading passed the Eiffel Tower towards the France pavilion! Oui!

Morocco is another place to just take a moment to look around you. You will really feel transported into the Middle East. The Minarets are beautiful and the art and architecture style is so different than anything we have here in the United States, you will feel like you are in north Africa not somewhere in central Florida.

Check out the new logo!
Hope you like it as much as I do! I scoured iStockPhoto today and spent my whole afternoon adjusting everything to my liking.
I've also enable the dynamic blogger layout. As you can see its very crisp, clean, and smooth. The top bar has links to each major label and our Facebook and About Me pages. Additionally, all the way on the left there is a drop down menu where the page will reorganize itself in a way that is most pleasing to each reader! I love that!
Be sure to search using the "Flipcard" setting. It makes a really cool animation and its fun to explore! Once blogger tweaks it a little and I can add a Facebook and Twitter button as well as a "Follow" link I can clean up some of the header bar and I will be very pleased.
Really awesome design day here at Picturing Disney!
Here's hoping your day is filled with Disney magic! :)

I've been waiting almost 15 years and today was finally the day I got to see The Lion King on Broadway! Best Christmas Gift Ever!!! Love my husband for this! Once I get my pictures from my camera uploaded I will post a full report but for now here's a sneak peak!
Here's the Simba plushie Rob bought me when we first got to the theatre!
And of course I could not resist stopping at the Times Square Disney Store!
Even though I know Chip & I lured you in with a great giveaway, now that you are here I wanted to thank you for joining my blog whether you follow here using Google Friend Connect or follow the Facebook Fan Page!
Here is a gift for Disney crafters!
Attached you will find an original crochet doll design for a Nemo plush doll. I created this Nemo from scratch and then recreated him to create the original one-of-a-kind pattern. I thought he would be a fitting choice since I got so many comments on the picture of The Seas! ;)
Although my shop is currently empty I have a couple more patterns on Etsy. And if you are a Ravelry member you can see my project notebook has lots of Disney-inspired amigurumis (although I did not create patterns for each doll I've created).
In any case, here's the PDF of your very own Nemo crochet doll pattern!!
Thanks for following! :)
