Another beautiful week inspired our intrepid photographers to move around Southern California taking beautiful photos. Even our own nbodyhome who usually provides coverage from Orlando joined us on the West Coast to provide photos of a very special event plus some shots of the Disneyland Resort.
First up, Jack "Hollywood1939" Wixom takes us on a trip to the Getty Museum.
Getty Center Los Angeles, California
The museum collects and exhibits classical sculpture and art, European paintings, drawings, manuscripts, sculpture, decorative arts, and photographs. The art collection is presented against a backdrop of dramatic architecture, tranquil gardens, and breathtaking views.
The Getty Center is located about 43 miles northwest of the Disneyland Resort at 1200 Getty Center Drive in Los Angeles. Admission is free and reservations are no longer required. Parking is $8.00. Vist the Getty Center website here for more information.
Live entertainment is also offered.
Breathtaking art is everywhere.
Water features galore.
Weird video room.
Next up we have coverage of a very special event honoring Disney Legend Wally Boag.
Golden Horseshoe Revue Event Anaheim Sheraton
On Saturday, March 29th, several hundred fans came together to honor Disney Legend and Golden Horseshoe Revue originator Wally Boag. He is also well known for providing the voice for Jose in "Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room" and also wrote much of the script for the attraction, participating also in the development of "Haunted Mansion" in Disneyland. Over thirty MiceChatters were in attendance for this special evening.
Thanks to nbodyhome for these photos from the event.
