Carousel Fit for a King

Carrousel Fit for a King

On this trip I took this shot on 2 different occasions. The first time I did it when the park hadn’t closed yet as I wanted to get the carousel spinning. I figured I would not be able to get it people free and spinning...

Alice & the Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Alice & the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

Technicolor Tea Cup Swirl

Technicolor Tea Cup Swirl

Let's get it out of the way and I'll go ahead and state categorically the Disneyland Tea Cup's are far superior to the Walt Disney World Tea Cups. The outside view is just absolutely gorgeous in comparison to the steel tent at WDW. Once again...
