Daily Photo Tour - Court des Anges


Court of Angels is easily one of the most beautiful spots in Disneyland. Surprisingly it would seem that very few people know about this or care to spend much time here. Matthew and I must've spent at least an hour here taking various photos and maybe three people wandered in as if by accident, only to then make there way to one of the shops, not that I'm complaining. Having this little gem to ourselves for an hour was really quiet amazing.

Our family takes a photo on the staircase every time we visit the park. It's a tradition, and we have pics going back to when our boys were tiny! They're in high school now, and they still put up with our photo tradition with smiles and good cheer. It is, after all, "The Happiest Place on Earth"!

Another BEAUTIFUL shot! Wow...

Wow, how neat! I was practicing my HDR shots and got one very similar to this. I was comparing it to this one, and it's amazing how different two photos of the same area can be! I love your version; the perspective is really great. You all keep inspiring me with your work!

You are making a VERY strong case for a tripod. What a gorgeous shot!

A beautiful photo! I guess some people are too busy trying to ride the rides to notice places like this.

Greetings from Germany ;)

We always go to this spot! It is a tradition for us to take a photo here. My favorite is from when I was a teen, my brother and I had a "please let it be over with" expression on both our faces. ;)

Michael, thank you! It's the perfect place for a family photo. What a wonderful tradition.

Cait, I really enjoy seeing everyone's photos of this spot. It's pretty amazing how many different compositions people are able to get of this small space.

Dave, thank you sir! They are quite handy at times ;) Just gotta get you a good one!

Steve Burns, thanks!

Christian, it has been a while, but of course we remember. It's great to hear from you again! As always, thank you for your kind words, we really appreciate them!

Terry, thank you so much :)

Anonymous, haha! My siblings and I had a similar experience. Loved Disneyland but when we hit high school, we were too "cool" to show we were really having a good time in our family portraits. Every picture from that trip shows our annoyed, please let it be over faces. I get a good chuckle from it. ;)
