Disney’s Ladies in RED

Disney’s Ladies in RED
Walt Disney World
Orlando, Florida

Rifling through my picture directories from the past 4 years or so, looking for suitable fodder for Ruby Tuesday (hosted at Work of the Poet by Mary/The Teach), I began to notice a pattern – Disney’s Ladies In RED!

First up is Disney’s most famous REDhead since carrot-topped Peter Pan – it’s Ariel, aka The Little Mermaid. Please notice that Ariel’s best friend, Sebastian the lobster, is also sportin’ da ruby hue.  😀   Photo taken at Disney-MGM Studios, oops I mean Disney’s Hollywood Studios – May 2005
  Here’s one of my favorites – it’s my girl Mulan, a true Disney hero, with her faithful guardian, Mushu. She’s BETTER than a Disney Princess; she saved all of China from the Huns! Someday, I will treat you all to my feminist rant in praise of Mulan’s shedding of the trappings of femininity. But not today. This was taken in EPCOT outside the China pavilion, which is pretty much entirely RED on the outside, February 2008.


It’s Minnie Mouse, all decked out for the Flower and Garden Festival, with Mickey by her side in equal RED splendor.  Now, you have to admit that they are both stylin’ to the max as topiaries! EPCOT, April 2004.


Here she is, the other strong female non-Princess Disney character. She’s Mary Poppins, and she’s practically perfect in every way, right down to her use of THE power color, RED! Taken during a parade at the Magic Kingdom, May 2005


“Shift yer cargo dearie, show them yer starboard side….”   It’s the very famous “We Wants The REDhead” from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in the Magic Kingdom.  Photo taken October 2005.

Well, there they are – my Disney Ladies in RED.   And there’s only one princess among them.  Hah!  I hope you enjoyed this Ruby Tuesday offering.  See ya real soon!

Surf’s up!
2008 Flower and Garden Festival

If you look very closely, you might recognize that Mickey is holding a SHELL in his hand!

Deep Pink Roses from the 2008 Flower & Garden Festival

The Rose Walk in Epcot wasn’t as crazy-in-bloom as I’ve seen it in the past, but still offered some lovely blooms to gaze upon, sniff and photograph. Here are some of my faves amongst the deep pink blossoms.

OK, so I think we might be able to ALMOST call this last one “red” 😀

Three different couples…and boy were they BUSY!

Hey Tink *~*~* – where the heck have you been?

Well, I gotta tell ya – I’ve been busy! I did set up photos to post all by themselves all week. Hope you all enjoyed them.

I spent most of the week in Columbus, Ohio on business. Then I came home and fell asleep on the sofa on Thursday night. Friday was about a 13 hour work day, after which I dumped the worn clothes out of my suitcase and dumped in some fresh ones.

This morning, I’m just now having coffee before I jump into the shower and then get on the road for the three hour car trip to Orlando. Chez Bro and da fambly are already there. We’re all staying at the Swan. SIL tells me that they are facing the Animal Kingdom, and she sees Everest and the Tree of Life from her balcony!

So, I will be there for four days, during which time I hope to send lots of photos of the Flower and Garden Festival at EPCOT here to the blog. I have to remember not to get carried away, because then Blogger will identify me as a spammer and put a 24 hour captcha requirement on the blog – which I cannot fulfill from my phone, so there will be no more pictures that day if they do that!

OK, this isn’t getting me showered, dressed, and on the road.

See ya real soon! 😀
