Space....


A few more from KSC- Pad 39A waiting for Discovery to return to launch next month

They've re-done most of the exhibits (Very well done) and I just have to say you really had to like your co-worker in the Gemini program...


They are currently re-doing the entry at the Apollo/Saturn 5 Center but lots of new touches are already seen throughout the building. Snoopy has a new home (He started out at the Rocket Garden)

LOVE this "show"

and loved the new Apollo collection- This the Apollo 14 capsule "Kitty Hawk"

Remembering...


Made it back out to Kennedy Space Center today.

Been meaning to go for awhile (LOTS of good changes) but today was a more singular goal (i.e. you'll see the rest of the pictures tomorrow) The past 2 days were the anniversaries of the Challenger and Apollo 1 tragedies.




We can't look to the future without looking at the past

Lots of changes and Dinosaurs!


Went to DTD yesterday and ate with the Dinosaurs!




Had to experience the new refreshment stand at the AMC...
Create your own soda (I was told the raspberry coke wasn't as good as expected..)


Sad sight as 2 of the clubs are now being reduced to dust (This was Motion)


(and Rock n Roll Beach Club)

The "Short Attention Span Parade"


So I went and saw the "new" parade at the Studios yesterday-
Says something where I waited 20 min for a 6 min parade..

Old float with new paint scheme...

Same float with less characters...

Nice to see the Rat out though...

The thing that made it worse.. Some characters were walking closer with the float in front than theirs making it really hard to photograph... See Boo in the shadows of Remy...

My fav Monsters characters from Block Party are back on the scare floor

Once again- Great to see UP out but this float just looks cheap :(

Now if these pictures took you longer than 6 min to enjoy- You may need to see the parade twice... Can we please get a quality normal length parade?

More from DAK


So once again I was weather delayed from hitting parks yesterday so you get more from Animal Kingdom.. I did go see the 3rd Narnia (which is great if you like the series!) but since that is no longer Disney it doesn't count :)

Step into the Wild


Looks like they went all out on this year's decorations...

It was a rather crowded day so ended up seeing Flights. LOVE that show

Main purpose of my visit- To play with my new lens...





As the sun sets on another day..
