Disney's Human Element - Tradition (by Scott Smith (SRisonS))

Japanese Drumline (by Scott Smith (SRisonS))

Traditions, no matter how big or how small, can be hard to maintain. As generations go by, individuals' circumstances will change; and it can sometimes be difficult to celebrate the ways of the past. But it's a special experience when an old tradition for someone else can become a new tradition for you. At Epcot's World Showcase, guests have an opportunity to witness pieces of heritage from all over the world. From the kumi-daiko in Japan, to Oktoberfest in Germany, to the celebrated street performers of Italy; this display of cultural customs can spark a newfound love for the old ways.

Bringing In The 4th

Disney's Human Element - Bringing In The 4th

Every year at the Magic Kingdom, Disney puts on a SPECTACULAR fireworks display; with 360 degrees of pure goodiness!!!!!! And if you don't want to brave the crowds on the 4th, you can even check out the same show on the 3rd (as I did here). ;)

As this was my first visit to the Magic Kingdom for this event, I'll admit that I was being a little pouty as we were moving further and further from the castle as the fireworks were about to begin. As you can see, we didn't end up in the greatest of spots, but the show took an amazing turn; and fireworks were going off all around us. So we were still able to really enjoy this magnificent display.
