Disneyland at Night

Disneyland during the day is a magical place; at night, it is beyond spectacular. The lighting transforms it into a completely different world. I am sure guests zoom by the Main Street Emporium Windows while the sun is out; at night, the lighting makes them leap out and beg to be noticed. Here are a few of the newer windows that have been added to the roster, beginning with The Princess and the Frog.

Toy Story:


Frozen…quel surprise!


Although these photos show the detailed craftsmanship that went into the creation of these gems, seeing them in motion in person is a completely different experience. To round out the post, here are a few shots I snapped as I sauntered out of the Park after the fireworks:

Jolly Holiday:

Coke Corner:

and the last one shows the Carnation Cafe:

Yes, it's beautiful at night, but too damn crowded. After the fireworks show which is still the best nighttime show at the Resort, I leave the park and come back next day early morning (opening). My favorite time at Disneyland is opening to mid-morning. The park's refreshed and not trampled with guests yet.

As for the photographic aspects of your post; beautiful job as always, Dave. They've done a fantastic job with the Emporium Windows, a wonderful Disneyland classic and tradition. If there's one land that benefits greatly from nighttime, it's Main Street, U.S.A. Thanks, Dave!

Ken - I have to agree; the crowds at night are just insane, especially when Fantasmic, the Fireworks, and Paint the Night are going on.
