It's All in the Disney Details


Whenever someone asks me what sets Walt Disney World apart from other theme parks, besides the great customer service and that indescribable Disney magic, I have to mention the details.  Disney does a remarkable job of transporting you from the real world to the “world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.”  From the attractions and the queues, to the resorts and the shops, the attention to detail is nothing less than amazing.

Disney's BoardWalk Resort Trash Can
One of the best things about a Walt Disney World vacation is that no matter how many times I visit, I find some new detail that I never noticed before.  It keeps the trips exciting year after year to explore the parks and resorts at a slower pace to really take in all the wonderful details.  On a recent trip I was on the lookout for an inspiration for a new photo series and found a very exciting new muse…trash cans.  Yes.  You read that right… I took pictures of trash cans.

It was on my first solo trip that I really noticed the trash cans and the detail that was put into these simple trash receptacles.  Touring the parks solo, I took my time walking through the parks and stopped at every trash can to admire its unique beauty.  I am sure that when people saw me taking pictures of trash cans they were thinking “what is this girl doing taking pictures of trash cans” but they are quite the interesting subject matter.

In the Magic Kingdom, each land has its own trash can design that fits into the theme of the land.  In Tomorrowland, you have the silver, futuristic trash cans with the Tomorrowland logo.  Fantasyland trash cans fit the land perfectly with their whimsical design.  The Fantasyland logo adds a charming touch.  The Storybook Circus trash cans are also really fun and compliment the area incredibly well.

The different pavilions in Epcot also feature different designs on their trash cans.  A really cute trash can is in The Seas pavilion.  Can you use the word cheerful to describe a trash can? Something about those colors and the logo just make me feel happy. Other great trash cans are in Pixar Place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  These trash cans are fun, with bright colors and whimsical designs.

Disney's Polynesian Resort trash can
Even some of the resorts have themed trash cans!  Perhaps my favorite trash can of all the trash cans in Walt Disney World is the one at the Polynesian.  Mahalo for such a well themed trash can!

Who would think that something that collects trash could add that extra detail that is Disney magic at its finest?  It’s in the little things, like making the trash cans become part of their surroundings, that Disney does best.  Next time you visit a Disney park, take a second to check out some of the trash cans. After all, one man’s trash (or trash can) is another man’s treasure.

It’s all in the Disney details!

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…
