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).


Have you ever taken a photo at Walt Disney World and then when you looked at it on a bigger screen, you found a “surprise”?   Sometimes it gives me a good laugh!  For instance, this photo was taken circa December 2006.  It looked great on the little screen of my PowerShot G5.  But when I viewed it on the large computer screen at home, I noticed I’d captured a lovely young couple in the lower right portion of the screen.  With Spaceship Earth and the holiday decorations all lit up behind them, it would have made an awesome Christmas card.  Unfortunately, I had no clue who they were!  I guess I’d been so intent upon trying to get the night shot focused, I didn’t notice that aliens had invaded my shot.  Fortunately, through the wonders of modern technology, I was able to darken them so all you can see is the top of the guy’s hair shadowed against Mickey’s glove.

One thought on “A PHOTO “SURPRISE”

  1. On our trip to Disney World last year, I took a photo of Main Street. After we returned home, I was looking at all of the photos we took. (There were about 2,000 of them.) When I came upon the Main Street photo, I stopped. In the sky was a cloud that looked just like Mickey Mouse! Who would think to look for hidden Mickeys in the sky? My wife and I have since blogged the photo and it makes for a nice story about Disney being such a magical place that they even control the clouds in the sky. 😉
