"Weenie": A term that Walt Disney and his Imagineers used to refer to the thing that is the iconic structure, or focal point, of each park- it's what draws the eye and captures your attention, summoning you in for a closer look...
This image, this icon, this structure, this attraction- Spaceship Earth IS WDW for me.

We love the Big Ball as my darling princess started calling that at age 3. Its fun to look at and ride! Today I was at school library, saw a book "How The Printing Press was Made"....and I thought of Dame Judi!ReplyDelete
Spaceship Earth is like the most relaxing ride ever!! Especially when you go backwards. I love it. When I was little I was convinced it was a giant golfball. Even funnier, when word got out that Disney purchased Lucas Films, my husband exclaimed "Now they can finally turn Spaceship Earth into a Death Star!!!" Wrong park, sweetheart. Wrong park.ReplyDelete
We love Spaceship Earth!ReplyDelete
Very nice! I love Spaceship Earth too!ReplyDelete
Beautiful collage of Spaceship Earth. I love taking different photos of this Disney Weenie at different times of day :)ReplyDelete
Love the close up of one of our favorite Weenies. Love the color changing at night. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Great pic, KJ. I'm totally fascinated by Spaceship Earth ...ReplyDelete
LOVE the shots!ReplyDelete
The 'ball' as my son calls it is down for refurb right now. So it is just fun to look at this trip.ReplyDelete
That topmost image is spectacular!!ReplyDelete
I love, love, love Spaceship Earth! Inside and out! The close up of the surface up there is really great - nice compositions and choices here! :DReplyDelete
What a great choice of a Disney Weenie! It just draws me in everytime!! Beautiful shots!ReplyDelete
Very cool collage.ReplyDelete
My 2 year old son loves Spaceship Earth :) He yells ball! when we walk into the park. :)ReplyDelete
What a great collage and it really does highlight the "Big Ball" (my kids used to call it that too :) Love that close-up shot you got. It's definitely one of the first weenies I can remember.ReplyDelete
I have to agree that SE is the weenie that best represents WDW. It is unique to WDW and also symbolizes the park that was inspired by Walt's vision of the future. I like the collage!ReplyDelete
