Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in Motion

The Disney Animation Building in Disney’s California Adventure is a must for the Disney fan. When I was there last fall, it was not a very busy place especially soon after park opening.

Photographing the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at Night

Photographing in the Magic Kingdom at night is a lot of fun. Especially, late at night as the crowd thins out and photographers can set up their tripods almost anywhere.

Travel Photography at Walt Disney World

Posted on
Really, Scott? Isn’t the title redundant? We all take travel photos at Walt Disney World, don’t we? Well, yes and no.
