Since going to Walt Disney World and Disneyland at a young age, Chris has always enjoyed Disney music, TV shows, movies, and trips to Walt Disney World. But his appreciation of the overall Disney experience has greatly increased over the last few years. While waiting for the next chance to work on his Disney photography skills, Chris passes the time listening to Park/Resort audio, WDW podcasts, and checking out the work of other Disney photographers. To Chris, there are no bad Disney trip photographs or photographers. Non-Disney pursuits include spending time with his wife and children, watching and listening to baseball broadcasts, and cheering for the Chicago Cubs and LSU. Chris is a third generation professional engineer in Louisiana, working mainly on asbestos, lead, mold and demolition projects.

The EPCOT Imagination Pavilion is often a seen and not visited area of EPCOT. That’s a shame really, because it is such a neat place, and not a bad destination for people looking to get away from the crowds around Soarin’ or Test Track.

Our trip pattern just happens to work out where we visit EPCOT during the International Flower and Garden Festival. But it’s funny how the randomness of our trip timing is turning more into probability. Not that I mind – I’m ready for spring and summer, and I love how the park comes alive for this festival.

There are a ton of up close details to see when visiting all the Walt Disney World parks and resorts, and I really like shooting those. I also enjoy the far-off panorama type views.

This is a single shot of the Imagination Pavilion. Looking back, I wish I’d have tried shooting a panorama (stitching together multiple shots). Or maybe I could have tried using the panorama feature on my iPhone.

Unless the skies don’t cooperate, you pretty much can’t miss when shooting this. I edited the photo using Adobe Lightroom, and the only real edits were cropping the image.

The Imagination Pavilion is also a great subject to shoot late in the day or at sunset. And I had some fun with this long exposure shot of the Epcot Imagination Pavilion and monorail late one night.

What are your favorite landscape shots at EPCOT, or any of the parks and resorts? Do you have a favorite time of day or year to shoot? Send us your ideas and your shots!
