Most of the WDWNT Crew is back from Walt Disney World (Tom will be back tomorrow), so you can expect a lot of photo reports in the coming week. Here’s the first one from our very own Jose Castillo:

Nice atmosphere around the Main Street Train Station.

Cinderella Castle VERY late at night.

The WDWNT Crew were the last to leave the park on that night.

Moving on to the second day of World Wide Weekend… Here we see Marcus D’Amelio, & Matt Pezzula setting up the WDWCelebrations table at Epcot in the morning.

You gotta love free goodies.
