In honor of Walt Disney World’s upcoming 40th anniversary, I thought I’d post a photo each week of me or my family from our past visits. I have posted in the past my earliest photo from around 1979 but here’s one from one of my favorite places ever – the Rainbow Corridor at Image Works upstairs from Journey into Imagination. That attraction, and the Image Works play-area hold my tiny, unicorn-filled childhood heart. I spent hours in there playing with the different colored tables full of ‘pins’, painting Figment on a touch screen, stomping on the colored lights to make music, and Dreamfinder’s School of Drama (green screen at its finest – AND, Dreamfinder was played by none other than Imagineer extraordinaire, Joe Rohde – thanks to Scott Otis [Disney expert and friend extraordinaire] for that tidbit!). I would give just about anything to go there again.
About Suzannah Otis
A child of the 80's, Zanna grew up on a never-ending quest the next best sticker for her collection (mood stickers were best, with fuzzy stickers a close second). Her first true love was a misplaced extra-terrestrial, followed by a handful of Ewoks, the entirety of the original EPCOT Center, and sipping her first iced coffee at age 10. All of these things shaped her life growing up outside of Boston where she climbed trees and roller-skated till the streetlights came on.
Zanna has lived in Florida for the most part since 1995. Now living and blogging in Walt Disney World's backyard for the past 10+ years, she is the mother of 2 adult humans, a 10-year old (also human) and 3 cats, and the wife to one husband, who puts up with all of the above. She tries to find that one little spark in everything, and thanks you very much for taking the time to read this.
