Daily Photo Tour - Walt & Mickey

This has to be the best spot in Disneyland, period. I don't know how many times I have just sat here on a bench, eating a box of popcorn and drinking a soda. There is just so much inspiration in the park, but for some reason it seems to centralize here at the hub, at this spot. You have a great view down mainstreet, of the castle, and to the entrances to most of the lands in Disneyland. You can't sit here for more then a couple minutes without someone walking up to take a picture, or a family searching for a passerby (or resting onlooker), to help out in taking a portrait of their family. I first took this image with my cell phone on my birthday, the first day I received my annual pass. I knew I had to come back to take it again with a real camera! I just love the composition and relationship between the castle and Walt.

Hope you enjoy!
