Of the many pastimes we enjoy during our stay at the Walt Disney World Resort, one of our favorites is finding a spot to rest, watch the world go by, and scope out things that might be photo-worthy.  We call it “taking perch pics.”  Sure it’s fun to wander the World and take photos!  But sometimes, if you stop and observe, serendipity strikes and the opportunity for an intriguing photo may come to you.




















High above the line-of sight, an ornamental orchid hangs from a tree from the veranda of the Mayan pyramid in Epcot. 














Monorail orange and blue make a pass by the fourth floor outside balcony of the Contemporary Resort.  Located on the north side of the hotel, it’s also a great place to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks. 














There’s not only ducks in the waters of the World—there’s lots of wishes!  Coins from generous guests shimmer in the water of Echo Lake at Hollywood Studios. 




















During a quick lunch, a white ibis stops by for a visit at the Flame Tree Barbecue reflecting pool in the Animal Kingdom. 
















Characters in Flight is framed by a decorative, classic Mickey railing at Downtown Disney.  The railing can be found near the outside seating area by Ghirardelli. 




















While enjoying a sunrise cup of hot coffee, Sorcerer Mickey conjures up some magic at the All Stars Movies Fantasia Pool. 

In some of our future posts, we’ll share our favorite perches and the pics taken from those locations.  Now it’s your turn!  Where are your favorite perches?

    Hello Kathy and Sean!!!! 🙂
    So I said I would start commenting on ALL of your blogs, even if this is late. I absolutely love the photos. They are really pretty and capture the essence of the parks. I hope both of you are doing well and keep putting up more fantastic pictures! And keep looking for Lou!!! Alright, so until your next blog- Calculus girl out!

    (Oh and my favorite picture is your last one. I LOVE the All-Star resorts and your next blog should be about the ambiance inside of those resorts. *Cough cough* My favorite building is the Broadway building in the Music. Just an idea though!)
