Daily Photo Tour - The Final Turn Around the Carousel

The King Arthur Carrousel seems to be the heart of Fantasyland at night. The warm glow from the carousel illuminates the entire land and affects the kid within all of us. It's a magical time when Disneyland has closed, and you are left in Fantasyland with two of your best friends. Every land in the park has it's own kind of atmosphere during after hours. Fantasyland is no exception. Even though all the happy children that occupied the area have gone home to sleep, there is a sense of joy, excitement, and peace that resides in the land. This night, we walked into Fantasyland just as The King Arthur Carrousel was rounding it's final turn. I am very thankful for the moments the three of us get to have in the park, seemingly, by ourselves. It gives us the opportunity to capture scenes like this, where all that is left is an empty carousel, and a magical moment.
