Trip Report, Pt. 4: Disneyland at Night!
I promise this is the last post from my most recent trip to Disneyland! Disneyland is a magical place, but never more so than at night...especially when hardly anyone else is around! The Premiere of "On Stranger Tides" provided the perfect opportunity to shoot some long exposure shots at low ISO to capture the most detail. The first three show Adventureland; almost difficult to recognize without the swarm of guests and strollers!
The Haunted Mansion at night looks very other-worldly. I remember as a kid the first time I visited Walt Disney World, I was absolutely convinced that riding The Haunted Mansion at night was a different experience than riding it during the day.
Main Street U.S.A. is an area that drives me crazy most of the time. Too many people waiting for parades, camped out on the curb...hordes of guests tromping through on their way to other lands, not even noticing ALL of the beautiful details...the mobs in line at the registers trying to get that final souvenir before "last call."
However, in the following photos, Main Street can be seen in its pristine glory, brightly lit for all to see.
As a final parting view, The Main Street Train Station. All that's missing is one of the trains!
