Traci C. (NDM#118) (37 Posts)

Traci was born and raised in Ohio, but has been visiting Walt Disney World since she was 18 months old (in 1974)!! She has always had a special place in her heart for all things Disney, but especially loves Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and her favorite princess - Cinderella. Traci spent her childhood visiting the Magic Kingdom for just one day every summer (her grandparents lived in Tampa, Fla.). It wasn't until 2003 that she finally was able to stay "on property" .. and now visits at least once a year (more if she's lucky). The family's favorite resort - Beach Club. The love of Disney runs deep in Traci's house - her daughters love all things Disney and are always looking for "hidden Mickeys" (and both been counted as NDKs). And her husband? Well, he's almost as Disney-obsessed as the girls. One of these days the family hopes to make the move south to be closer to The Mouse (and away from the cold, snowy Ohio winters).

At night, Spaceship Earth is colorfully lit and makes a wonderful backdrop for the fountain show.  When I took this photo in 2005, the “giant Mickey hand” was still attached to Spaceship Earth at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT theme park.  The hand, along with the wand and the word “Epcot” was first installed for the millennium celebration, and had originally been labeled “2000”instead of “Epcot”.  Naturally, the whole apparatus was the subject of lively debate in and among the various Disney internet communities.  I personally thought the geosphere was iconic by itself and didn’t require further identification by labeling it “Epcot”.  It was fun and pretty for the millennium, but I’m glad they finally took it down.  CLICK HERE for a few more shots of EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth.
