The First Photos: Universal Studios Florida, 2011 – 2015

Obviously Universal Studios isn’t held as highly in my esteem as any Disney park. Clearly. No question. BUT. It’s still a good time. So, it too gets the First Photos treatment. Once again, apologies for photo quality; 2/3 of these are really old. The year: 2011 The companion(s): Elizabeth The title of the album: CONSTANT VIGILANCE! The why: Ha, so, I actually had to skip over a bunch of photos at the beginning of this album, ’cause… We totally went to Downtown Disney first. And while I love a good picture of a Grand Floridian tea cozy as much as...

The Last Photos: Universal Studios Florida, 2011 – 2015

We recently wrapped up all my Disney trip albums in my Last Photos series – and I know I said we’d do First Photos next.

As we left our scene of triumph to be whisked away by a Magical Express bus, we passed magnificent chalk art by a very talented Cast Member.   The year: 2013 The companion(s): My mom The title of the album: Look for the bare necessities The why: The only trip in this list without a race attached.

The Last Photos: Walt Disney World, 2008 – 2012

The Disney Hipsters recently did a nifty series highlighting the final photo they took on their Disney vacations. I have neither the photographic skill, nor the effortless style, nor the devastating wit of the Disney Hipsters. What I do have: a bunch of rapidly ageing Disney park Facebook albums and a crippling weakness for nostalgia. And so I give you: The Last Photo From My Disney Albums, Part 1. Apologies for the quality on these; being from the oldest trips, I don’t know where the originals are anymore. The year: 2008 The companion(s): Moon, Elizabeth, and mutual friend Megan The title...
