It’s time for another of WDWNT’s photo reports from the World. Let’s see what’s going on at the Vacation Kingdom:

The Nine Dragons ODV is now open outside the main China pavilion in Epcot.

Here’s the menu.

The fountain at the entrance of Epcot is now operating again.

A new (lovely) 4-pack pin set.

Here are just a few shots from Disney’s Celebrate America, the 4th of July fireworks extravaganza.

Looks a bit like a Disney promotional image, doesn’t it?

The new ODV cart at the Transportation & Ticket Center.

The menu for the ODV cart.

A few more of the gates have been removed at the TTC.

A Toy Story Mania billboard just before you get to the turnstiles at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Your guess is as good as mine.

A look around the new (nameless) Toy Story Midway Mania (limited) merchandise area.

And here is the Hey Howdy Hey Take Away!

Impressive detail for a ODV cart.

Now moving over to Woody’s Picture Shootin’ Coral.

The circle in the brickwork is actually a speaker, covered up since our last update.

A clever hint to the Pixar short Luxo Jr, which is actually the lamp used in Pixar’s logo.

This is the rocket Buzz was strapped to in the original Toy Story.

Inside The Magic of Disney Animation, where the audio-animatronic Wall-E will be appearing sometime this Summer.

Here’s a few stills from Wall-E displayed in The Magic of Disney Animation.


It seems John got a name card from Rilous Carter, the Vice President of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

A look at the latest construction on T-Rex in Downtown Disney.

John has also uploaded a couple of short videos from Disney’s Celebrate America, both of which you can view bellow:


Stay tuned to WDWNTube over the next couple of days to see a full video of Disney’s Celebrate America from us.
