The Disneyland Railroad Project


We haven't spent much time hyping up our upcoming Disneyland Railroad film project but after hours and hours of editing and over a month of shooting we feel we have something very special to share. It's going to be different than anything we've done before and we hope it will be the start of many creative endeavors showcasing Walt Disney's original Magic Kingdom. The goal in all our work is to pay tribute and respect to the inspiration and joy of Walt's legacy. Our hope, in turn, is to be an avenue for joy and inspiration to your lives. We hope you are as excited as we are. We can't wait to share on Saturday.

Google Plus


We are excited to announce our new Google+ page. Some of you may be connected with our first account, which was put on hold because we are a web site and not an individual profile. Now that Google has rolled out business pages for its social network we have established our official Tours Departing Daily page which can be found by clicking here. We'd love to mingle with you there, so if you have a Google account be sure and add us to your circles!

Daily Photo Tour - Waiting for the Disneyland Limited


I thought this was a wonderful moment at Disneyland as an engineer waited for the Disneyland Limited to pull into the station at New Orleans Square. It also seemed fitting to me to use this picture to help build anticipation for our Disneyland Railroad project. If you're as impressionable as I'm hoping you are, you now have a deep desire and a need to watch our film on Saturday and share it with all your family and friends. If you don't have that feeling yet, that's okay. We still have a couple of days to work on you and clever plans are in the works.

As a former Walt Disney World Cast Member, I noticed this CM is exhibiting bad show... he's on the verge of leaning on the railing, and his hand is in his pocket. Both are not good show while on stage as a CM. Outside of this... beautiful shot!

Oh, I just love this picture! We love the Disneyland RR and I can't wait to take a ride the next time we're at Disneyland, in January!

Brian - Thank you! He was actually speaking with the woman in red for a while and they were laughing prior to this shot. As the train entered they paused their conversation and she turned to take a picture. I love seeing CMs having conversations with guests.

Alisha - Thank you so much! The Disney Gallery is opening a RR exhibit this Saturday and it may still be there for your trip which would be very exciting! :)

Amazing shot Matthew! How did you get the shot so clear and perfect?! What settings were you at?! Thanks!
