    Disneyland and DCA on 3/9 - photo heavy

    Here are some pics I took yesterday at both parks. Got there around 10:30 AM (horrible traffic on the 5 due to an accident). Didn't leave until 11 PM - long day.

    My goal in taking pictures this time around was to be artsy and not take the general shots that tourists take. Also, I know none of the children in these photos. Here is to feeding the addiction some of you have

    First off, the Haunted Mansion



    Next I went over by Hungry Bear and took this picture of a pirate fort type thing on the Island.



    Then I noticed a raft heading to the Island. He stopped to pick up these "suits" who were talking and pointing and had clipboards. I waited for them to come back, but they kept talking so I gave up.



    The canoes by Hungry Bear



    Capt'n Jack was out and about



    The Columbia is docked during the day for people to board and look around. It cruises at night starting at 6 PM



    The following saying is always a good idea



    In the que waiting to board Big Thunder



    This heron was on the bank of Rivers of America



    Took several shots before I got this just right. I love digital cameras!



    Woody was out by Thunder Ranch area



    As was cowboy Goofy



    Inside Thunder Ranch area



    Inside the Ranch House, this is on the stone fireplace



    This photo of Walt, with many others, is outside on the wall of the house



    Isn't she cute? ... I mean the little girl



    Spring is in bloom by the old Fantasyland Skyway station



    Spring has sprung all over



    The coat of arms for Mr. Toad



    The room where the Evil Queen lives over Snow White. I like the blooming tree in front of it.



    Be careful, or Monstro will get you



    These riders made it through Monstro and are enjoying their cruise



    The lanterns over the Teacups



    Mary and Burt were with the band, performing in front of the castle





    This shot of some real swans near the castle came out a little strange in both color and focus, but I kind of like it



    Took a movie at Jedi Training, and Darth Maul came right up the ramp and put his face in my camera. This is a capture shot from the movie.



    Painting on Star Tours building



    Painting on Buzz Lightyear building



    King Triton



    There was some character action going on over by the piano. Here's Mad Hatter


    And Geppetto



    And Mary Poppins again



    And these two adorable little girls were dressed just like Alice



    Now my daughter, who had gotten off work, had joined me and we headed over to DCA



    She really wanted to see It's Tough to be a Bug and so I took some shots of the Pixar bugs in the area. These came out the best











    My final three photos (whew) are night shots. I have never tried this before but after seeing others on this forum and reading how they did this, I decided to give it a try. I just have a small four year old Sony camera so they are OK, considering.

    This first one is my favorite. Astro Orbiter



    Tea Cups



    and the Carousel



    Hope you enjoyed my day in photos at Disneyland and DCA

    Great shot! Thanks for sharing them. That one of Alice and the little girls is worth the price of admission right there.

    Thank you for the kind comments. I, too, thought those girls with Alice was very magical. I love getting in close to flowers. Makes the photo look like a carpet.

    Yes!! You did great. I don't think you have anything to worry about as far as being artistic! You did a great job and they all look just perfect. I know you had a great trip and the photos are icing on the cake. I am proud of my sis! She did good.

    What happened to the rule about guests not wearing costumes? XD

    Great pics Wendy, how'd the date with Beaker go?

    DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.
