Jose Castillo’s 2/13-14/09 WDW (and Place of Evil) Photo Report

WDWNT Technical Director Jose Castillo has shared some interesting photos from the first two days of his 3 day excursion to Walt Disney World this weekend, so let’s take a look:

Jose started his Friday at Epcot

I love seeing the characters out-and-about rather than confined to the Character Spot, I wish they would bring back “Characters on Holiday”

The Fountain of Nations refurbishment continues…

As does the constant stream of new Innoventions exhibits

The bottle shaped recycle bins have returned after a few weeks in absence

This plant by The Seas with Nemo and Friends has seen better days

In transit to the Magic Kingdom, it’s easy to notice the exterior work on the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Convention Center

“Now Shop Rite Does the Can-Can…”

Jose then went back to Epcot, where WDWNT sets the record for most Japan tarp pictures in a single weekend!!!

The Voices of Liberty outside the American Adventure

The Kim Possible Recruitment Center operates late into the evening

Moving to Saturday evening, Jose visited the Magic Kingdom for a few hours. Here, you can see just how large the tarps on the Hall of Presidents facade are

Cinderella Castle all in red to celebrate Valentine’s Day

These “character party hat” decorations have appeared on some of the posts along Main Street U.S.A.

So why wasn’t Jose at WDW earlier on Saturday? Because he went to the place “Where Roller-coasters Rip Through Scenery”, Universal Orlando

I feel bad complaining about anything Disney does when their competition is building loud, brightly colored roller-coasters to run through pre-existing attractions and scenery

Imagine this bursting through a store on Hollywood Blvd. at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

For those of us who complain about current affairs at WDW, remember, it could be much, much worse…

Thanks for the photos Jose (and Universal pictures that provided many laughs)!!!
