DHS Details: Dork In Situ

It is International Hollywood Studios Awareness Week, and I can’t think of any better way to celebrate than with a list of the top three best places in the Studios to be photographed looking like a dork.

3. Echo Lake Apartments
You could easily walk right by this super piece of Disney history without stopping or even noticing it. I’m sure I did. But after reading about this Imagineer-planted gem on one of my favorite nerd-tastic Disney blogs, 2719 Hyperion, I made a beeline for the fabled mailboxes, and BAM! I was photo bombed. (Payback for all of the hat photos I make Rob pose for.)

2. Acme Ton of Bricks
Located near Studio Catering Company and the Monsters Inc. meet and greet, this awesome sight gag is hilarious … unless you’re the one being maneuvered into position by your husband and a prankster friend with a camera. Thankfully, I realized what was happening before they could cut the rope …

1. Honey, I Shrunk the Playground
This is hands down my favorite playground in all of Disney World (and anywhere else, for that matter). You can complain that it needs an update and has little context for kids, but you can’t argue that it’s boring. Where else can you ride an ant or stick your arm up a dog’s nose? But there really needs to be a no-photography rule in play here:
