EPCOT Lights of Winter, December 2006

Someone on the Disboards forums remarked that they had never seen the tunnel of holiday lights through which one can walk from Future World into the World Showcase during the holiday season at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT. I knew I had photos somewhere, and I even had a scan of the festival guide (see at left), too!

This holiday display is not only amazing eye candy, it’s a photographer’s dream. I am by no means anything beyond a point-and-shoot type myself, but with the way digital cameras operate today, even I was able to get some pretty cool shots of this wonderous display. I mean, the only thing that’s missing is the snow! Um, NO, I am not wishing a snowstorm on sunny Florida during the holiday season, or any time soon; we get enough freakish weather ’round these parts, thankyouverymuch!

This reminds me, I need to make some hotel reservations for early December, as I’m taking a professional certification exam in Orlando and want to spend the rest of the weekend taking in the holiday decorations at Disney World. Putting that on my To Do list for this weekend.

For those who haven’t seen this before – happy viewing! And I hope you get to experience this yourself sometime, too!

Here’s the whole “tunnel”. You’re looking toward Spaceship Earth/the geosphere, but you cannot see it because it is DARK! 😀
Here’s a side view, with the reflection in the lagoon that I was talking about in my post on the Dis. In this view, you can see that the “tunnel” is really a series of arches strung together along the walkway from Future World into World Showcase.
Finally, my favorite shot! This photo becomes my desktop wallpaper around the holidays. I think I will have to re-take the photo this year, because the Hand Of Mickey has been taken down, so it will be a whole different shot now.

Does anyone else have photos of holiday lights at any of the Disney parks? I’d love to see them! Please leave a link in the comments so I can check out your photos. Thanks!
