  • The light rig was up for the band that plays on a raft on the river at night, we saw them at our visit a couple days ago.

  • OK! Love the pics but does anybody else notice in two of the pictures there is a VERY strange ‘paranormal’ orb? Its an orange orb that shows up in two pictures. I go to Disney 2 times a week myself, they do not sell anything that looks like this. It is not a balloon. It is not on the camera. It is WEIRD!

    • If you are talking about the two pics of the fountains in DCA I think that is the reflection of the sun off the lens or the water or the combination of the two.
