Daily Photo Tour - The Secret Passage to Frontierland


There's nothing quite like surrounding yourself with wood. Sometimes that's exactly what a man needs. This passage between the Plaza Gardens and Rancho del Zocalo is a quiet transition into Frontierland. At night, with the beautiful lights of the restaurante glowing at the end, it's pure magic.

I simply wanted to express my support and excitement about what you three are doing here. The difference that these HDR composites makes is truly remarkable. I feel like I'm there. Recreating that mood is almost impossible, yet you've done it with your remarkable attention to perspective and lighting. This photo is just rich and brilliant. Thank you so much and please keep up the excellent work.

Wow! I can't even count the number of times I've been to Disneyland and I never knew of this passage way. I'll definitely have to check it out the next time I visit the park. Thanks!

@ Elaine - Thank you so much. We were so happy to stumble onto HDR a couple years ago. It has really allowed us to create images that we never dreamed were possible. It's really fulfilling to be able to enjoy the atmosphere at the Park and then communicate it in a meaningful way. We've been so blessed to be so well received by so many wonderful people, such as yourself. Thank you for your encouragement. :)

@ Anonymous - It's definitely a nook at the Park. Or is it a cranny? :) Either way it's a beautiful corridor, especially at night.
