Daily Photo Tour - An Evening at the Hub


Tonight marks the second anniversary of Tours Departing Daily and what an incredible ride these past two years have been. We never dreamed this website would turn into anything like this or that it would become such a special place for us to share our love of Disneyland. When we began taking pictures of Disneyland, our only thought was to try and share how it made us feel and that has been the goal we've strived for since. Disneyland is a wonderful place that has the ability to bring out the best in people, providing a source of both joy and inspiration. A short while ago, we mentioned our anniversary on Twitter and the generous outpouring that followed from friends really touched us. It's difficult to express how much appreciation we have for everyone that joins us in this journey, that shares feedback and words of encouragement on Twitter or Facebook or a friendly e-mail, that finds us in the Park. We are so grateful to each and every one of you. We are partners in this. We are bursting with excitement for some of the things we have planned for this year. We promise it will be the best yet. So with that obligatory statement intended to wet your appetite, what better place to join us in celebration than an evening at the hub?

Holy moly! This shot is GORGEOUS! This is an angle I don't think I've ever even realized was there. I love the way the mountain is sort of peeking out from behind those huge blossoms and how those pink blossoms just surround the Partners statue. And then how that contrasts with the other tree which is a little more bare, with the glow of the lights just bringing it all together. Absolutely beautiful!

Happy anniversary! I can't believe this site has been around for two years already! I've been following the site from nearly the beginning and it's always a highlight of my day to check the site and see what's new awaiting me! Congratulations on the milestone! Here's to many more... :)

2 years...and to think I just discovered you a few months ago! Every photo here is a revelation. The colors in this one are out of this world - the Matterhorn in the background is definitely the cherry on the sundae.

Wow!! Two years. Happy Anniversary to the three of you. Seeing your beautiful pictures every day is great, but I just viewed a slide show of the entire Gallery (again) and it really reminds us of the hard work and dedication that goes into sharing your love of Disneyland with all of us. Today's Hub photo is beautiful with the colors contrasted against the darkening sky. Of all the wonderful pictures you post, my favorites are always of the Hub and Walt's apartment above the firehouse. Truly magical. Thank you for all your hard work in creating this website. Looking forward to many more years. Congratulations!!

This is one of my favorite Disneyland photos ever, and it's my new desktop of course.

It's been a wonderful two years, I can't wait to see what the next two bring from the three of you. Thank you for bringing us a little piece of our favorite place everyday.
