The Splendor of the Zephyr
The Golden Zephyr is one of the original attractions of Disney California Adventure, which celebrated its 20th annivesary earlier this month. Patterned after the classic flying airship attractions of old seaside amusement parks, the ironically named ride is often down due to high winds (which aren't actually that high). Still, even when it's still, it's a very pretty sight, sitting alongside the water. This is especially true at night, when the light-wrapped cables and steel structure seem to glow, casting pretty reflections into Paradise Bay. It makes for a serene scene in this nook of California Adventure--at least until World of Color starts up!
