Not as far off as mistaking Magic Kingdom for Chernobyl.

In my defense, I've never been to Disney, and there's a radioactive symbol smack dab in the middle of that picture! Sure, it's probably a garden or something, but still!

Ahhh, the nuclear symbol is the garden in front of the castle with the bronze statues?

And behind the castle you can see the new construction. I think there is a ride going in there and that's where we went into Ariel's Grotto.

Just went there for the first time in May of this year.
We liked Animal Kingdom better (ahem, just saying.)
