Animal Kingdom: Asia Nightfall Photo

Disney's Animal Kingdom at Night

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is peaceful at night. Some places are so dark, devoid of people, and detailed that you wouldn’t even believe you’re in a theme park. This area of Asia, for example, made me feel like I was actually in a remote area, gazing at a mountain off in the distance. No one was around, and not much light illuminated my immediate area. In fact, it was so dark that this 92 second exposure almost wasn’t bright enough to give me a properly exposed foreground (it did, however, give me an over-exposed sky–check out those star trails in the large version of the photo). While I have not always been the biggest fan of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, I’m beginning to come around. I still think it needs more “Distinctly Disney” substantive experiences so that the “Nahtazu” campaign actually rings true, but it’s moving up on my list. It’s now a must-visit for us each time we head to Walt Disney World, and that definitely was not the case even a year ago!

Technical details: tripod-mounted Nikon D7000 and Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens.. See our Disney Photography Guide for more photography equipment recommendations.
