#DisneyKids: Big Surprises for Little Kids

posted on January 16th, 2015 by Jamie Langdon, Social Media Manager


Before all of the excitement of castles and characters at Walt Disney World Resort begins, you get to play the role of your family’s hero by booking the vacation of their dreams. One of the most magical parts of planning is surprising your little ones with news about the trip and seeing their faces light up with pure joy. Since young kids love to make a game out of everything, we thought of a few fun ideas on how to infuse a little pixie-dust when you let them in on the big surprise. Don’t forget to have the camera rolling to capture their reactions!

Have you ever surprised your family with a Walt Disney World Resort vacation? Tell us how!

Disney Parks After Dark: The Mystery of the Chandelier Clock at Disneyland Park

posted on January 15th, 2015 by Paul Hiffmeyer, Chief Photographer for Public Relations, Disneyland Resort


Have you ever walked through Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland park and looked up to see the stunning chandelier clock? If not, you are missing a real treat. Installed in 1996, the chandelier clock has never actually worked. Despite the theories and rumors, the numerous times that have been set on the clock have had no significance. Over the years, I have photographed the clock many times during the day. This time, I wanted to see how the clock would photograph at night. I think the beauty of the clock is more evident at night than during the day.
