Wandering around the World

New Stuff!
Or at least newer stuff...

Senior Editor Debra Martin Koma Wandered around the World
the last weekend in January and snapped some things that were new to her...


Handwashing Sign

Here's something new all around the World --
a reminder of the corporate sponsorship of Georgia-Pacific paper products pops up in all theme park restrooms.

Nadirah Baby Elephant in Animal Kingdom

There she is -- the new baby elephant, Nadirah!
She's so cute and tiny there in the middle of the shot.
Can you see her?
Precious, just like her name says.

New Magic Kingdom Stroller Rental Area

The new Magic Kingdom stroller
rental area, now located under the
Main Street Railroad Station.
Cast members said it has really
streamlined the process.
Ray Feeding Time

Feeding time for the rays in the Living Seas --
guess this fellow was pretty hungry!
I never saw a ray behave this way --
as pesky at dinner time as my dog.

Molding Pumpkins at the Land

Molding pumpkins into Mouse Ears --
we got an up-close view during the
Behind the Seeds Tour at The Land.

Hidden Mickey in Viking Exhibit

A new Hidden Mickey in the Viking Exhibit in
Norway's Stave Church.
(Thanks to Anita Answer for pointing it out!)
New Coke Spot in the Studios

Now there's another place to cool off near
the Coke bottle mister in the Studios
(near the Backlot Tour entrance).
Behind this six-pack is a
vending area selling Coke and chips.

Bored Face Painters at the Studios

Never saw this before...
Such a slow day for the face painters along
Mickey Avenue, they tried to drum
up business by painting themselves!
The King of Noodles

Here's the King of Noodles hard at work
at Alfredo's in Epcot.
Yes, they are as good as they look!

Blueberry Cheesecake at Yacht Club Galley

One of the best desserts of the trip --
a simple New York cheesecake
with blueberries at the Yacht Club Galley.
Never ate dinner there before and it
was a pleasant surprise.
