When the night sky falls on Disneyland, the park really shines. It is often said that nighttime was Walt Disney’s favorite time to be in Disneyland, and although I don’t know whether this is actually true, I can completely see why. There is truly magic in the air when most other guests have left the park. Disneyland has a serene feeling and it’s almost as if your senses are heightened when no other guests are around: you can hear the ambient background music better, you notice the texture of the handrails, pavement, and other surfaces more, and every little detail seems more clear. My last hour in Disneyland is always my favorite hour of the day.
