Your Attention Please


Today we are headed to the Park to finish working on a special project. We haven't said much about it to this point because we've been very busy, but we couldn't be more excited. Next weekend the Disney Gallery will open a new exhibit dedicated to the railroad and trains of Disney. Our project will coincide with that and feature the Disneyland Railroad. We've been getting footage nearly every weekend for over a month and it is really coming together. We think it will be very special and hope that it will find a place in your hearts next weekend.

Time for a Christmas Tour


It seems that everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit even earlier this year. Halloween had ended only hours prior to stores playing their Christmas music and our web feeds filling with holiday photos. Even Disneyland is filming their holiday parade this weekend. We felt like jumping in the swing of things too, so today in lieu of a "Mega Saturday Three Picture Post", as it is affectionately known around here, we would like to share our present to Tours Departing Daily passengers from last Christmas. We hope that it helps get you in the spirit and makes your season bright. Ladies and gentleman, "A Christmas Tour" -

Seriously amazing work!!! The wet weather made for cool reflections and the clouds shifting by above made for a neat effect. I loved catching the subtle things like the train smoke moving behind IASW and the green Matterhorn. Green... really? Haha - I guess they pulled it off... barely!

The fireworks at the end were awesome! I didn't think it would look good with the slow frame count, but it actually sped it up and went perfectly with your music selection.

Thanks for posting this! Production quality work here.

Charlotte, thank you! There is nothing quite like Christmas time at Disneyland and I'm sure you guys will love it. If you do spot us, please say hi. We'd love to meet you!

Kel, thank you so much! It was a labor of love and it means a lot to hear how much you enjoyed it and that you noticed all the little details that we worked so hard to include. Thank you! :)

Wow, guys, this was awesome. The weather couldn't have been more perfect! Being able to see all the reflections of light in the wet pavement, the rolling clouds, and even some streaks of rain all added an amazing, magic touch. I especially love the fireworks and the castle lighting. I miss Disneyland so much, and I am so glad to be able to watch a day through you guys during my favorite time of year. You guys reminded me that it's actually the holiday season! (At 80 degrees in Key West, it's not very festive here.) Thank you guys!
