As regular readers know, I recently went to Florida for vacation. We started out playing in the Gulf of Mexico, and then headed east to Disneyworld.
We have been to Disney quite a few times. Therefore, we know the parks pretty well. We know what rides to get a Fastpass for first thing, what rides to visit at night, where to eat at a reasonable price, etc. Another thing we have learned is where to go when we are getting tired and need to rest up and get a second wind. So, on our most recent trip, we were needing that break and we decided to stroll over to Tomorrowland and ride the Tomorrowland Transit Authority (TTA). The TTA is basically an elevated open-air-train-type track where you sit in a car and it cruises slowly around Tomorrowland. I can’t remember how many minutes the ride takes, but quite often you can stay in your car and ride repeatedly as long as there is not a big line. The attraction is nice because you get to rest, and you get to see some interesting things. You not only get to go through the Buzz Lightyear Ride, Space Mountain, etc, but you can get a spectacular view of the Magic Kingdom park too.
On our most recent visit, we rode on the TTA at sundown. The weather was perfect, around 72 degrees, and the sky was gorgeous. I snapped this photo while riding around Tomorrowland: (Please excuse the white in the upper right hand corner. I obviously am not a professional photographer. In my own defense, I was in a moving vehicle…)
I have no idea why I am so enamored with this picture, and I am sure I appreciate it more than most since it is attached to my memories. Anyway, I hope readers might find it interesting too. Feel free to let me know what you think of this photo, unless it is just going to be a commentary about my poor skills as a photographer. :)
