From Southern California to the heart of Florida, across the ocean to Tokyo and even to a place known as The Adult Disneyland, our photographers have had another very productive week. And unlike the motto of one of our destinations this week, we can promise you that what happens in our world most certainly does not stayyou?
Tokyo Disney Resort
Our very own TDLFAN was lucky enough to attend the festivities for the 25th anniversary of this Disney park and shares these extraordinary photos with us. (Can it really be twenty-five years?)

First up a couple of old friends from the Country Bear Jamboree - only seen on the East Coast, sadly.
Here are some photos of The Diamond Horseshoe, rarely open now.
Haunted Mansion broke down - good for photographers, bad for tourists
The dazzling nighttime Spectromagic Parade.

Goofy made a friend.

Still using diesel.
During the day...
The wind up and the pitch.
It's so crazy the ride is broken half the time.
Do you know where this is?
View from a secret walkway.
Always the two finger point.
Shake harder my son!
He posed for me!
Favorite pick of the day.
I don't think he likes the bird on his head.
He ate a lot of gold...
Taking a dip.
The Pixar for some reason we need water in this parade Parade
I liked the colors so I thought I would post it. What do you guys think?
Las Vegas, Nevada
The following photos are not from a Disney park although Las Vegas is certainly one of California's favorite playgrounds. MickeyMaxx shares with us some photos from his recent Las Vegas trek.
The vintage neon exhibits restored and refurbished by the Las Vegas Neon Museum are located in downtown Las Vegas, in and around the Fremont Street Experience.
Signs are displayed on poles, sidewalks, and the tops of buildings.
Most of the signs have an adjacent plaque explaining the history of that particular sign.
One almost expects a puff of smoke to emanate from the tip of this giant cigar.
What would Vegas be without a buxom showgirl?
Perhaps a dozen signs can be found around the interior courtyard of the downtown multiplex theater.
My favorite way to display a vintage sign: on top of an equally vintage building.
These signs sit atop the fully functional El Cortez Hotel and Casino.
It's a rare chance to step back in time.
Finally this week, MiceChat member Slim22 shares this photo of a tribute to Ollie Johnston at the Disney Legends Plaza at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank.
Each week, we provide you with photos of details which we challenge you to identify. Where in the universe can you find these little beauties?

And that brings us to the end of another week. Our photographers have just enough time to reload their cameras before we see you all again next weekend. Thank you to all of our wonderful readers, and as always, a huge thank you to our amazing team of global photographers, spies, and gossips:
