Here is our first photo report provided by WDWNT’s Head Technician Jose Castillo. Here is what he saw during his first day trek through the world:

The gingerbread display at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

A cool monorail tree inside the Fantasia shop

Some work being done on top of the BVG store

The tree outside the Contemporary

Over at the Magic Kingdom, a look at decorations around Main Street U.S.A.

Exterior work continuing on Pinnochio’s Village Haus

The seating area at Ariel’s Grotto closed until the next Christmas party

I’m sure we have mentioned this, but no more Indy at the Speedway

Coming in 2009, Pace Ountain!!!

The Dapper Dans

The Main Street Band

Jose then boarded a monorail, along the way noticing work on Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

After a second monorail to Epcot, Jose found himself at a Future World Picnic :)

The former Wonders of Life waits to open once again in March

All Food and Wine signage has been removed, leaving the last original pavilion sign

May not be long until a sponsor is missing from this sign…

Already missing one here

Those new recycle bins have been added to the Future World section of the park now

Work still going on here, I can’t believe how many pictures of this thing we have had!!!

Lights of Winter and World Showcase tree

World Traveler decked out for the holidays

After a short boat ride, Jose found himself at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where space on this board is hard to come by. Block Party Bash couldn’t even get a time put up

Is it just me, or does it look a little off color?

130 minute wait for Toy Story Midway Mania

Stage 1 is now empty and awaits construction of a new attraction

Work already going on just across the street, as some new characters prepare to move into Pixar Place

A Bolt poster just outside Pixar Place, it’s a shame this great film hasn’t done better at the box office

Jose went back over to the Magic Kingdom that evening to find a nice surprise…

Mickey’s Twas the Night Before Christmas performing at the Galaxy Palace Theater on a non-party night

And finally, how could we have any photo report without this

Stay tuned as we continue to get photo reports from Jose during his trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!!!
