Daily Photo Tour - King Triton's Carousel

When you hear a cast member singing the theme song to World of Color, you know it's going to be a good night. The Paradise Pier Boardwalk at night is truly becoming a favorite spot for the three of us. The atmosphere is something unlike anything I have ever experienced. The sounds of California Screamin' rushin' by and the music from the distant Silly Symphony Swings create an atmosphere that is full of excitement, and enthusiasm. King Triton's Carousel is one of those glowing spectacles that really stands out at night, but unfortunately can be overlooked during the day. On our way out one night after an impressive showing of World of Color, I found myself lined up for this shot. A few cast members stood in front of the carousel awkwardly singing the lyrics to the theme song..."The world is a Carousel of Color (Color)." Yes, even with the echo. I couldn't help but laugh. They noticed the shot I was trying to get, and asked if I wanted them to move. It was very kind of them, and I replied, "Yes, but only if you keep providing that wonderful background music."

I love the E-ticket theme! And of course, this picture is stunning. I love your night photos. The colors somehow seem even more vibrant than normal and I am always reminded how everything in Disneyland is just a bit brighter than the rest of the world.

Kelly...I love night pictures too, there is something about looking at a scene, and then opening up that shutter for a long time, and seeing so much more in the picture. :)
