Blue Skies in Fantasyland
Here's another snapshot that isn't necessarily anything spectacular, but triggers some nostalgia of my own childhood spent at Disneyland. This is looking southward from an area I featured in a blog post last year. Long before I was even born, it was home to the Motor Boat Cruise, a quaint little underwater track boat ride in a far corner of Fantasyland. When I took this photo last year, I was drawn to the sunny, relaxing atmosphere, and it conjured up memories of Disneyland as a kid, when every time I went seemed to be a beautiful day, and long hours of the day were spent in Fantasyland (because I was too young to ride much of anything else!). Today, this area is a bit of respite from the crowds (except during parade time), and it's a pretty little serene place to just enjoy the Happiest Place on Earth!
