    In the fast-paced world of today with instant messages and text messaging it's hard to believe that not very long ago communication wasn't always so free and easy. In the old west, the best way you could hope to send a message to someone far away was to pay high-priced telegraph or maybe wait weeks for a Pony Express or passing train to deliver the mail!

    Today's Juxtaposition is a fun one, as it's a sight that could only be envisioned on the wild Frontier by the most imaginative of cowboys or perhaps those well-versed in the tomes of Jules Verne.

    In New Orleans Square, if you take just the right perspective from just behind the churro cart in front of the Haunted Mansion, you'll see what looks to be a mighty fancy communication system set-up on the roof of the Stage Door Cafe, the frontier's very first internet-ready cafe!

    Today's juxtaposition is a common sight to anyone staying at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. This specific perspective is one that guests staying in the three-bedroom Grand Villa of the DVC wing of the hotel are able to enjoy.

    Hollywood may be quite a ways away from the woodsy forests of Northern California but in this photo you can see the lift-ramp for Grizzly River Run leading right up to what appears to be an entrance into the Hollywood Tower Hotel.
