Daily Photo Tour - A Night on the Bayou

Whether you're fine dining or sailing through on your way to adventure, the Blue Bayou is one of the most magical, immersive places in Disneyland. You can't help but get lost with wonder, creating fanciful stories of its inhabitants. I took this picture very late at night and there were no people left at the tables behind me in the restaurant. The uncrowded boats intermittently passing through provided the only pauses from near silence, the faint sound of a banjo in the distance. Moments like these at Disneyland are the best. They are the memories that stand out even amongst the rest. Some people say they don't "get" Disneyland. I think maybe they just haven't had a quiet moment like this one.

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful image! You truly captured the magic, I feel as if I'm there again.

I grew up going to Disneyland, and now I live next to Disney World. I love both parks, but Disneyland will always be my favorite, and hold a special place in my heart.

I really miss the Bayou, and think of it every time I ride POTC here in Florida.

My favorite time in the Magic Kingdom is also late at night, when most of the guests have left, it's quiet, the magic is heavy in the air and I get to take the time to soak it all in and enjoy it.
