Disney Parks After Dark: Sailing Ship Columbia at Fowler’s Harbor at Disneyland Park

posted on July 18th, 2013 by Paul Hiffmeyer, Chief Photographer for Public Relations, Disneyland Resort


One of the ways I decide what to photograph here at the Disneyland Resort is to look through our photo archive. Rather than look for photos we have, I look for ways to add to our library. In our Sailing Ship Columbia folder, there are a lot of the Columbia sailing on the Rivers of America but only a few docked in Fowler’s Harbor. Also, there are even fewer taken at night and most are from the stern of the ship. With these new shots, I wanted to capture the decoratively carved figurehead on the bow of the Sailing Ship Columbia in the photos along with the great décor of Fowler’s Harbor. Here are four such views for your enjoyment.

FYI: Fowler’s Harbor was named after retired Navy Admiral, Joe Fowler, who enjoyed a 25 year career with The Walt Disney Company. Fowler not only oversaw Disneyland park’s construction but went on to manage its operations after it opened.

The sailing ship Columbia is awesome (no it’s NOT a pirate ship) ;)

I think these are fantastic. The darkness and lighting really make the look very “clean” and the details pop. Excellent!

During Fantasmic our Columbia transforms (metaphorically speaking) in the Jolly Roger, where Captain Hook and Peter Pan duel as Wendy, Mr. Smee and the pirates sail along. : ) Great Fun!
