Before the holiday season ended here at the Disneyland Resort earlier this month, I had the opportunity to photograph the Disneyland Railroad Engine No. 3 – the Fred G. Gurley – in Mickey’s Toontown Station, lit by the thousands of ‘it’s a small world” Holiday lights, all around the train. I thought the photos turned out so nice, I wanted to share them with you now. Until next season – Happy Holidays!

Did you know that in addition to dolls that represent international countries, the attraction also features 38 Disney character figures, including Marie (“Aristocats”), Pinocchio (“Pinocchio”), Abu, Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie (“Aladdin”), and many others?
Thanks to photographer Tom Bricker for the great image.

As I draw toward the end of a truly amazing career with The Walt Disney Company which has spanned nearly 40 years, it becomes obvious to me that I have been truly blessed by the many friends I have made along the way, both in front of, and behind the camera. Having been long surrounded and supported by dedicated and talented team members and partners, I take away a lifetime of fond memories that will surely never fade.
It seems like yesterday when I took my first non-newspaper job – an experiment that I expected might last six months or so. Now, having lived “the dream,” I thank my friends and family for a lifetime of happiness and adventure.
Photography will always be in my blood, and I am carefully exploring future projects. I will still be reachable via Facebook, and hope to create a blog of my own in the near future. In the meantime, I offer one of my favorite portraits as a parting shot. Disney’s Animal Kingdom superstar Gino, the magnificent silverback gorilla, pondering his world. Thanks Gino, and thanks to you, Mickey.

So many of the stories we tell here on the Disney Parks Blog rely on the amazing images shared by our photographers. I rely so much on Disneyland Chief Photographer Paul Hiffmeyer, myself – in fact, you often see his photos and you probably don’t even know it, since his work is often uncredited. But he often shares his favorite shots with us himself as a Disney Parks Blog author. Here are some of my favorite Paul photos from 2013.
Through a Photographer’s Lens: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure Park – One of my favorites of the year, the colors in the shot of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure park make it look like a vintage postcard.
Through a Photographer’s Lens: Waterfalls of Disneyland Resort – Paul works his photographer’s magic in this photo to make the water rushing over Frog Jump Falls at Grizzly River Run look like cotton.
Rainy Day Reflections at Disney California Adventure Park – You may not know this (or perhaps you do, if you read the Disney Parks Blog a lot) but Paul has a fascination with reflections. Windows, puddles – if an unexpected view is bouncing back, he’s going to shoot it.
Disney Parks After Dark: Dumbo the Flying Elephant … Topiary, That is … at Disneyland Park – Dumbo the Flying Elephant, a Dumbo-shaped topiary and colorful fireworks combine to create this whimsical view of Fantasyland at Disneyland park.
