Signs that You’re in a Disney Park

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton

Everything is matchy-matchy, themed, and ensembleized (new word) at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. It’s like each land is wearing Garanimals (way before my time). But that’s what we love, that extreme attention to detail that assists in transporting us to another place where lunch isn’t timed and the only dress code is wear clothes.

Signs are designed to co-ordinate with architecture, attractions, or just to stand out. They give us instructions, offer pricing for food, and most importantly, tell us where we are.

Want to photograph something that could change or disappear over time? Take pictures of signs.
