posted on February 11th, 2016 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager


How amazing are the sunsets here in Central Florida? In this week’s “After Dark” pic, our photographer snapped the beautiful sun setting over Fantasyland. Here, you can see Prince Charming Regal Carrousel and Cinderella Castle. Did you know that Cinderella has her own special horse on the carousel? (Hint: Look for a horse with a gold ribbon wrapped around it’s tail on your next visit).

Disney Parks After Dark: After Mickey Mouse and Friends Say ‘Good Night’ at Disneyland Park

posted on January 21st, 2016 by Paul Hiffmeyer, Chief Photographer for Public Relations, Disneyland Resort


I always wondered what happens in Mickey’s Toontown after the Disneyland park gates are closed. To find the answer, I visited several different nights with camera in hand. Although I wasn’t able to solve the mystery, I had a great time exploring Mickey’s Toontown, as shown in the first photo of Mickey’s car in the fog, to the last of Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin at sunrise.
