The Monorail is one of the coolest looking things at the Disneyland Resort. I always imagine it should travel much faster like a bullet train, with its sleek, aerodynamic curves. I’m certainly not complaining, however. I would never want to rush the many unique views you get of the Disneyland Resort while riding the Monorail. A lot of times I wish it would go slower so I could spend more time enjoying its perspective. Either that or I wish someone would let me honk the horn. No request is too extreme, right?
Continue do the adventures on Star Tours. Enjoy it you will. That’s how Yoda would say it if he guest blogged for us. Unfortunately, Master Yoda was too busy playing a pickup game of basketball to join us this evening. In all seriousness though, it is really good to see the Star Tours sign aglow again, balancing out the neon lights of Tomorrowland. The updated facade is gorgeous and definitely up to par with the new ride experience.
Have you ever found yourself in a staring contest with an inanimate figure, somehow making yourself believe you can win? I love these seagulls. They totally crack me up, echoing “Mine, mine, mine!” For some reason, the silly side of me feels the need to argue with them, “No, it’s mine!” I’m not sure exactly what “it” is but I’m pretty sure these guys will take just about anything they can get. And of course I don’t win the staring contest or the argument because they’re not about to stop and I’m at Disneyland. There are rides to be ridden and pictures to be taken and memories to be made. If I spent all day entertaining people by staring and arguing with these seagulls, Disney would have to make me a cast member and put me on the payroll.
I bet that title really roped you in. If not I don’t blame you. This is a hidden Mickey picture after all, not a Jungle Cruise joke. Don’t you love finding new hidden Mickey’s hiding around the park? I had never seen this one and was so excited I decided to share it with all of you!
This futuristic structure taking aim at Space Mountain is the Observatron. If you were wondering, I did have to look that up. It’s one of those things at Disneyland that you see and think, “That’s cool… What is it?” If you stare at it long enough, pondering its identity, it will put on a show for you, with sound effects and all. I was pretty excited to find this perspective of it on the Monorail platform. I’m told it gets pretty good reception.
There’s a great big beautiful Tomorrowland, illuminating the end of every day at Disneyland. The vibrant neon lights of this land are my favorite reason to visit at night time. For me, it’s the time when Tomorrowland really comes to life. Innoventions was roped off by the time I took this shot, so I had to set my tripod on a ledge and take the shot a couple of feet overhead. The bright light in the sky above Space Mountain is coming from World of Color, which also does a pretty good job of illuminating nights at the Disneyland Resort.
