I love mornings at Disneyland park. Lately, colorful summer clouds have added to the resort’s painterly feel.

The Mark Twain Riverboat’s smokestacks look like outstretched arms reaching upward as pink clouds roll overhead.

There’s magic to enjoy at every hour of the day at the Disneyland Resort, but mornings… ah, mornings … are really wonderful. Come on by and enjoy the natural beauty which surrounds the resort!


  • I always love your wonderful photos of the Disneyland Resort; but today’s are especially beautiful.

    One of my favorite things to do during an “Extra Magic Hour” is to walk around the open areas of the park and just take in the views while there are almost no crowds. It is a chance to stop and really examine the small details Walt Disney and the Imagineers put into everything. It’s also a great time to look for Hidden Mickeys!

    Thanks for these reminders of why Disneyland is one of my favorite places in the world!
