Daily Photo Tour - The Year in Review - Our Top 12 Tours of 2012


We are just a few hours away from the coming year and the three of us are eagerly anticipating the amazing things that we are sure will come in 2013. We have been so blessed since we started this blog. It has been a labor of love and an endeavor to be a blessing to others. For us, 2012 was difficult in that we weren't able to work on as much creative content and as many new ideas as we wanted. Time and circumstances got away from us. That's not the case for 2013. We have projects in the works that we cannot wait to share and we can say without a shadow of doubt that this will be the best year yet for Tours Departing Daily.

Before we embark on the new year, we wanted to recap our top tours of this year. These are the top 12 tours you took here in 2012 and we want to say thank you. Thank you for sharing in this journey with us. We wish you the very best and happiest of new years!

WOW - You never cease to amaze with your pictures and your words. Looking back thru these pictures I find heartache and joy. Heartache for the places and people that are no longer with us and joy for all the beauty and the new ideas that have come to life because of someone's vision. I am so very blessed by your vision, our tour guides. I have seen the park in a way through you, that no matter how many times I go to the park myself, you always share some magic that perhaps I missed. May 2013 be YOUR YEAR for Magic and YOUR YEAR to SHINE!!! LOVE & THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

All of these pictures are beyond beautiful! But I can't look at Kevin's Carnation Plaza Gardens pic without getting teary-eyed. You captured perfectly the glowing joy of it. All the more heartbreaking because it it gone. Thank you so much!

Happy New Year! Thank you for sharing your talents with us. You are very inspiring artistically speaking. And as I live in Northern CA sadly I am unable to visit the park as frequently as I would like. I always enjoy my regular Disneyland "fix" through your blog. I look forward to another year of beautiful Disneyland photography from you three. Thanks !! -Nicole H.
