This photo seems to be all about a full moon … but is it? With a closer look, you’ll see that it’s framed by the neon lights on top of Luigi’s Casa della Tires – the entrance to Luigi’s Flying Tires in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park. I wanted to share this photo with you as part of our “Disney Parks After Dark” series because even though it is a bit abstract, unique details still make it a recognizable location at the Disneyland Resort.

One of the most picturesque places to hit up at Walt Disney World Resort this week was the brand-new Marketplace Co-Op at Downtown Disney. As Steven Miller shared earlier, this location includes six boutiques of unique Disney Parks merchandise, including dedicated areas for Beautifully Disney makeup, D-Tech On Demand products, Zoey & Pickles girls’ clothing, and more.
Be sure to click through the gallery above for a full look inside. Which area are you most excited to explore?

This week’s Disney Parks After Dark photo was snapped at Downtown Disney and features three of the location’s new food trucks – Namaste Cafe, Fantasy Fare and World Showcase of Flavors – just after closing time.
Have you tried any of the delicious menu items from these trucks? Tell us in the “Comments” section below.

The Mad Tea Party is probably the attraction I have photographed the most at Disneyland park. But I’m almost always sitting in a pastel teacup, photographing guests as it spins around. When I photograph attractions, I try to show excitement, motion or action, so this time it was nice to concentrate on other things like composition and color. I really liked the way the gold light shimmers across the brick wall, leading your eyes to the attraction.
Did you know that the Mad Tea Party has been in Disneyland park since opening day – July 17, 1955 – and that, although known by other names, the attraction can be found in every Disney park around the world. Can you name each one and the park where it can be found?

One of the things I like most about this resort is the shopping, dining, entertainment and recreation opportunities that are available – especially after the sun goes down.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs joined Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on stage for the dedication. The attraction will officially open to guests on May 28.
This week we also shared several behind-the-scenes photos and videos from within the attraction. Be sure to check out the gallery above for a full look.

If you liked Paul’s “Big Moon” over Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at the Disneyland Resort, then chances are you’ll enjoy tonight’s new “Disney Parks After Dark” image. It’s a beautiful look at a mysterious big sky over the entrance to one of my favorite attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort.
The image is another example of how we use light to enhance the park after the sun sets.

The “Frozen” Royal Reception cottage in Fantasyland at Disneyland park takes on a different feeling in the early morning hours before sunrise. I love the light reflecting off the wet surface that makes the cottage enchanting.
In the “Disney Parks After Dark” series, one thing that stands out in the photos from the different parks is the beautiful lighting. The photo below is a good example of how Disney uses light to enhance the park after dark.
