I was scrolling though one of my catalogs looking for an image for a composite when my 8-year-old daughter spotted this pink image pass across the screen and demanded to see it, so I obliged. I thought it would make for a decent daily photo post.
I took this a few years back on our first visit to Disney World in Florida as a family. My wife had been before, but I’d only been to Disneyland in Anaheim. The scale of Disney World with all the parks simply blew me away – and left me tired and shattered at the end of each day pushing and pulling two youngsters around the park. They both loved it, but then they didn’t have to walk!
Most of the view’s I’ve seen of Cinderella’s Castle have been front-on shots, the view from Main Street USA that you get when you enter the park. And I’ve a fair few of my own from that angle too, particularly of the firework show, but I like this one more because it’s less common.
We’d just left Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland and were heading back to Main Street USA to catch the firework show. This photo is taken from the bridge just down from the diner.
During the day, the Cinderella Castle is a backdrop to the many performances that are staged in front of it. At night, the castle becomes a canvas where Disney’s light artists create a wondrous array of effects. It’s not just the kids that become entranced!
