A Walk in the Park: Love and Adventure at Disneyland Park
by Joshua Sudock, Disneyland Resort Chief Photographer
I take a long walk through Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks (camera in tow) once a week in an effort to keep the resort’s photographic archive fresh and make art. Here are some pictures from recent walks.
I was starting to feel left out as all of my news photographer pals were posting pictures of iconic places against the snow-capped San Gabriel Mountains after last week’s storm. So, the first photograph is my take: the iconic Matterhorn at Disneyland park, as seen from Pixar Pal-A-Round at Disney California Adventure park (shot using a 400mm lens).
Let’s travel from the Swiss Alps of Fantasyland to the exotic back waterways of the Jungle Cruise in Adventureland. If that skipper is worth his salt … that elephant encounter should end with a bit of dry humor.
Westward-ho! The sun rises behind The Golden Horseshoe in Frontierland.
The sky is so blue after a good rain! Space Mountain in Tomorrowland seems to visually pop just a little more when the sky is right.
I love the giant heart-shaped topiary in Town Square and décor along Main Street, U.S.A. during Valentine’s Month. There’s still time to experience all of the Valentine’s offerings before this limited-time celebration ends on Feb. 18. From a scavenger hunt to decadent desserts, Valentine’s Month is a great time to get your ears on with that special someone.
