Welcome back to the MiceChat Weekend Update!

We've got a bit of liquid art for you this week, as rain paints the pathways of Disneyland in the reflected multi-hued tones of magic. A rare view of the California parks that very few people ever get to experience first hand (outside of the Disney fan community of course). And across the country we have a few small updates and lots of great shots of the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Walt Disney World, FL
Denise "Nbodyhome" and SummerInFl bring the Walt Disney World to us this week. First up, something is in the air at the Imagination Pavilion at Epcot. We finish up our WDW tour with a brief visit to Epcot's Illuminations Reflections of Earth.

Ah, the magic of nature - this week, rain - all the more beautiful at Disneyland. Resident MiceChat photogs Fishbulb and PhotoMatt recognize opportunity when they see it, taking these amazing shots of Disneyland painted in a dark but electric color pallet. We'll start with Fishbulb's montage of images and end with the shot of the week from PhotoMatt

Eye Spy #2 (Answer: Daisy Duck in the Camp Minnie Mickey section of Animal Kingdom.

And two new Eye Spies for you this week:
