Things That Spin in the Night at Disney California Adventure Park

by , Chief Photographer for Public Relations, Disneyland Resort

On the way over to Disney California Adventure park to photograph the next part in this series, I was hoping I could get three of the four attractions at Paradise Pier that spin in the same photo – and get them all spinning at the same time. After a little patience, waiting for all three to spin at once, I finally got the photo I was looking for.

I had no idea there would be so many different color patterns on Mickey’s Fun Wheel; no two photos had the same pattern that night unless it was stopped. Here are a couple of examples.

  • These are by far and away your best pictures. Fantastic!

  • You totally inspired me to buy a fish eye lens for my camera. I’m wondering how long the exposure was here – these photos are beautiful!

  • Hi Paul,
    These look familiar…I posted similar shots to my flickr a few weeks ago.

    I love any night time photo that has been time-lapsed. I just wish I knew how to take night photos as good as those.
