The devil is in the details.

As all of us Disney-philes know, no detail is spared at the resorts or the parks.  Every single nut, bolt, trash can, etc., is designed with the location theme in mind.  How many of us, though, actually take time to appreciate this minutiae in our travels to the World?   For the first time, armed with my camera, I photographed some of these details during my morning walks.

This piece of furniture in the Boardwalk lobby really freaks me out.  Almost as scary as the clown pool.

Under the heading of creepy; a lamp in the lobby of the Yacht Club.

All the years I have been eating at the ESPN Bar, I never noticed the arm and the dumb-bell on the roof of the building

ESPN "Strongman"

or that the door-handles are in the shape of baseball bats

I’ve always known that Boardwalk Villas is a beautiful resort, but I had never taken the time to appreciate the aesthetics

Mission Style lighting on the storefront

The art-deco design of the banners hanging from The Screen Door

Scrollwork on the roof peak above Jelly Rolls

"Old Fashioned" signage above the pool showers

Iron-work detail of the Boardwalk railings

An "out-of-the-way" garden

This new-found appreciation really made this past trip very special.  I hope to be able to do more of the same on subsequent trips.

Just for fun, I’m posting the below picture to see if anyone can identify it.


Thanks for following along with me today.
