More Dinoland At Night

The rest of the Dinoland at night pictures.

Mammoth Marathon - Here you use a Skee Ball type situation to power your wooly mammoth in a race against others.  Played this one too but did not win.

Comet Chasers.

The Dino Diner looked dark and lonely.

Triceratop Spin.

The Great Movie Ride - Lobby & Auditorium

We've crossed the courtyard of the Chinese Theater and finally made it into the refreshing air conditioned lobby.

Dinoland At Night

When I recently found out I would be attending an event at the Animal Kingdom at night I was thrilled that I would have the chance to get some pictures there after dark as the park is always closed by then.  Here is the first bunch from Dinoland.

Welcome to Dino-Rama!


We're erupting with gifts.


Does anyone need to use the restroom before we go?

Triceratop Spin in action.  I don't usually ride these spinning attractions since they hold no appeal to me but since it had no line and I'd never done it before I decided this was the perfect time.

Whoa, he's big!

Primeval Whirl (still closed).

More Dino-Rama!

Triceratop Spin.

I think this is the Whack A Dino game.  I played and won a weird dino/wolf/vampire plush creature.

Fossil Fueler.

More to come...

Port Orleans - French Quarter

After a period of at least 17 years I recently felt it was time to revisit Port Orleans.  The resort was just as charming as I remembered it and even more beautiful as all of the trees have filled in very nicely.

Arrival at the French Quarter water taxi dock after travelling up river from Downtown Disney.
