A Walk in the Park: Love and Adventure at Disneyland Park

Joshua Sudock

by , Disneyland Resort Chief Photographer

I take a long walk through Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks (camera in tow) once a week in an effort to keep the resort’s photographic archive fresh and make art. Here are some pictures from recent walks.

I was starting to feel left out as all of my news photographer pals were posting pictures of iconic places against the snow-capped San Gabriel Mountains after last week’s storm. So, the first photograph is my take: the iconic Matterhorn at Disneyland park, as seen from Pixar Pal-A-Round at Disney California Adventure park (shot using a 400mm lens).

Jungle Cruise at Disneyland Park

Let’s travel from the Swiss Alps of Fantasyland to the exotic back waterways of the Jungle Cruise in Adventureland. If that skipper is worth his salt … that elephant encounter should end with a bit of dry humor.

The Golden Horseshoe at Disneyland Park

Westward-ho! The sun rises behind The Golden Horseshoe in Frontierland.

Space Mountain at Disneyland Park

The sky is so blue after a good rain! Space Mountain in Tomorrowland seems to visually pop just a little more when the sky is right.

Valentine's Day decor at Disneyland Park

I love the giant heart-shaped topiary in Town Square and décor along Main Street, U.S.A. during Valentine’s Month. There’s still time to experience all of the Valentine’s offerings before this limited-time celebration ends on Feb. 18. From a scavenger hunt to decadent desserts, Valentine’s Month is a great time to get your ears on with that special someone.

Comments

  • Legit wondered if that was Switzerland for, like, five seconds.

  • Wonderful pictures–as always. But the picture of the mountains–San Gabriels and Matterhorn–is really beautiful.

    I always look forward to new pictures from Joshua!
