Daily Photo Tour - Reflecting Fantasyland


I love Fantasyland but sometimes I avoid going. It's so crowded so often, it can be difficult to take your time to enjoy it. At the same time, I would say that many of the most magical things take place there, in the heart of Disneyland. When you walk across the drawbridge, under the castle gate, and enter a world of fantasy, you are met with the choice of which ride you wish to go on. Rides based on Disney classics that we all seem to have grown up on. You don't have to dream about Neverland, you can fly there. You don't have any strings to hold you down either. There are magic feathers and poison apples that all make for a wild ride. The very best thing about it though is seeing children and parents taking part in amusement together, having fun and making memories.

Thank you all so much! The reflections come from each of the four spheres - the outer balloon, Mickey's head and Mickey's ears. Maryanne, you just gave me a great big smile! :)
