WDWNT is back from another of his lovely weekend trips to the Walt Disney World Resort. Let’s take a look through some of his most newsworthy pictures:

The Laugh floor seems to be loosing power :)

The brand new top for City Hall has been lowered into place after 7 months of waiting.

The wait time board at the Magic Kingdom on August 2nd.

Glaceau Smart Water is a new addition to ODV carts around the Resort.

It seems that the Adventureland Veranda has re-opened temporarily as Veranda Refreshments.

The Diamond Horseshoe has also re-opened, as it always does during busier seasons.

This is something new in the Don’t Waste It exhibit in Innoventions.

The Fantastic Plastic exhibit is still closed, awaiting a new exhibit.

Apparently, you plug Mickey into your MP3 player and he “grooves along with your music.” I wonder what he does when he listens to our podcasts?
