Sometimes we have to wait patiently for an area to clear to get a shot.  After eating at Rancho del Zocalo one evening, I noticed that the outside dining area was practically empty.  There was no waiting to be done and I took the shot without interruption.  It really set the pace for a fun, relaxed night of photography.  Now I just have to get the restaurant to go for my idea of character dining with Zorro.

    I don't know how you three go about choosing what to take pictures of, or anything, but I think it would be cool if you did a series of photos of the themed signs from around the park. I'd love to see restaurant signs–Bengal BBQ, Hungry Bear, etc; attraction signs, Main street windows, etc.
    Just an idea if you were thinking–I don't really want to take another castle picture.
    Keep up the great work!

  3. Thanks Sean and Janet. Those are great ideas. I think we have some pictures that would fall into those categories that we could work on posting. 🙂

    Lee, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I'm going to write Disney and suggest it. 🙂

  4. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the world. I like to eat enchilladas as the sounds of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad echo behind me. Unfortunatley, I don’t get to eat there as often as I like. I live in Philadelphia and the Mexican restaurants around here don’t feature a nearby roller coaster.

    1. @joshpincus:disqus, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad definitely enhances the taste and atmosphere of Rancho del Zocalo. Recently, I’ve been ordering the fish tacos. They’re very filling but not quite as heavy for when you have a busy day ahead.
