Things That Spin in the Night at Disney California Adventure Park

posted on February 16th, 2011 by Paul Hiffmeyer, 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.

Beautiful photos Paul!
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.

Hi Paul,
These look familiar…I posted similar shots to my flickr a few weeks ago.
Nice job on yours, I like the different angles

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!

Mr. Hiffmeyer,

This is some of your best work yet!!!!! I always enjoy seeing your pictures on the blog. Your shot of the statue of Walt & Mickey in the morning fog is an iconic photo!! Still hope to see it available as a print for sale so the world can enjoy it!!
