What a difference a change in perspective (and, as a result, focal length) makes! A few days ago, I posted this photo of Partners at Disneyland appearing much larger than the tree. Thanks to moving back and using my 70-200mm lens, Partners now appears more appropriately sized (albeit still too tall for scale!) in comparison
“it’s a small world” holiday is an overlay to the classic “it’s a small world” attraction in Disneyland featuring Christmas and other international holidays. This overlay premiered in 1997 and due to its popularity, the overlay has been enhanced several times since then as decorations are added and changed. Unless you’re living under a rock,
Christmas in Le Court des Anges is a beautiful sight…until you look at the ground level, and see that the gorgeous court has been turned into a veritable gift shop during the Christmas season. This presents difficulties in composing an unobstructed shot and resulted in an odd crop here. Normally, I just avoid shooting areas
After I had concluded taking photos (or so I thought) one night, the view of Sleeping Beauty Castle behind the tree caught my eye. I quickly snapped a series of shots, changing my focal point as I thought two very similar, yet very different shots would be interesting. Here’s one of the photos. You can
I’m working on detailed attraction pages with commentary, photos, and ride-through video for both “it’s a small world” holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday. For now, I’ll just say that we were absolutely blown away by Haunted Mansion Holiday. I lost count of how many times we rode it, but I think it was around 20.
Need help shopping for that Disney fan in your life? As people who love to buy things, we’re here to help! In recent years, we’ve switched almost exclusively to online shopping. Well, I have. Sarah still likes B&M stores for clothing, but I think it’s more difficult to purchase women’s clothing without trying it on.
We first experienced “it’s a small world” holiday during the day. My expectations for the attraction weren’t incredibly high, as I figured it involved a few Santa hats, a new soundtrack, and some Christmas lights strung throughout the attraction. Maybe a little more. To say we were both blown away when we discovered a thorough
Walt and Mickey are surrounded by gorgeous poinsettia flowers in the original Magic Kingdom as they gaze down Main Street, USA at the beautiful Christmas decorations in Disneyland.
Disneyland is unquestionably the most beautiful Disney theme park at Christmas-time. We recently had the pleasure of experiencing it for the first at Christmas, and we were absolutely blown away. We went in with very high expectations, and they were easily surpassed. From Haunted Mansion Holiday to “it’s a small world” holiday to the beautiful
Up until 2007, I didn’t think Disney could make Cinderella Castle look any more breathtaking. Then Walt Disney World went and added stunning icicle lights to Cinderella Castle for Christmas. While the lights are no cake 😉 they are still quite stunning, and really put the Magic Kingdom in a festive mood. We’re quite excited
The topiaries, such as this one of Pluto, are one of the last vestiges of Christmas in Epcot’s Future World. While these topiaries are very cool and wonderfully done, to me, Future World still lacks the holiday spirit that can be found in many other parts of Walt Disney World. The caption above is a
