Dave!Today is Walt Disney's birthday, though they didn't really do anything to celebrate it here in Walt Disney World. This is odd to me for some reason. They seem to celebrate everything else.

I had some free time before working this morning, so I went to The Magic Kingdom to goof around. After I was done with work, I wandered over to Epcot for a few hours... then back to The Magic Kingdom because I was able to get into the "Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party" event going on. I didn't care much for the festivities, but I did want to get my picture taken with Mickey Mouse before I leave, and this seemed as good a time as any...

Disney's Magic Kingdom: Astro Orbiter

Disney's Magic Kingdom: Splash Mountain

Disney's Magic Kingdom: Thunder Mountain

Disney's Magic Kingdom: Dave and Mickey

Disney's Magic Kingdom: Castle at Night

Mickey was a real class act... shaking my hand before posing for pictures and everything.

Minnie was nowhere to be found.

Neither was Goofy.

I'm not saying they're off fooling around together, but it sure wouldn't surprise me.

  4. Avitable says:

    Wow – the castle looks pretty cool!

  5. ETinNY says:

    “Goofy was nowhere to be found”? Isn’t that a picture of Mickey & Goofy? LOL! Glad you’re have a good time, Dave.

  6. Whitenoise says:

    Lookin’ good, buddy. Enjoy the happiest place on earth for me. 😉

  7. kapgar says:

    I thought you hated Anglo-Mickey. You actually look happy next to him. What gives?

  8. Hilly says:

    I love the castle during the holodays….great shot too! And yanno, I think I am the only person around that likes those Mickey Christmas parties! 😉

  9. We went last year the week after Thanksgiving. It was such a perfect time of the year to go because nothing was too crowded and the weather was really nice. If this had been last year, you would have been there at the same time as we were!

  10. Randy says:

    Were/are you doing work at Disney World/Epcot? or somewhere in the area? Just curious.
    I worked at WDW summer of ’75 in the All American College Band program…a real hoot. It was when Epcot was a mere prototype on a huge table layout…

    Really enjoyed your pictures posted here.

    My favorite ride is still Thunder Mt.

    Maybe Goofy was out for a smoke…

  11. PocketCT says:

    OH good you are smiling in your pictures again. I was starting to worry after the murder clown frown seemed to say with you. Maybe it is that your beard is growing back. It’s nice to see you smile.

  12. Faiqa says:

    Picture of you & Mickey is so cute. I’m not sure if that’s what you were going for… but it’s really cute.

  13. Lexxie says:

    You look very gangster next to Mickey. With your pants behind your shoe licks and your “That’s right, I’m balla with mickey” pose.

    Very nice.

    I’d probably do the same.

    I miss Epcot. I loved it when I was there. I wanna go back 🙁

  14. Miss Britt says:

    The Christmas lights on the castle are my favorite Disney thing ever. I have about 200 pictures of that stupid thing from last year. LOL
