My four years old daughter has of course already seen her share of Disney movies and every time the Disney movie begins, as you certainly know, this wonderful Disney castle appears. So every time seeing it my daughter asked:
What is this place?
It is Disneyland.
Can you take me there?
And so I promised I will take her to Disneyland. Although many rides in this theme park are suitable for older children only, I believe the earlier the better: younger children still believe in magic...
The culmination point of each day at Disneyland is the parade where many of the characters may be seen together. The background song for the parade goes “Magic everywhere!...”
This is so true for Disneyland.

By the way, recently the sixth Disneyland was opened:
Anaheim, CA
Orlando, FL
Hong Kong
So the Disneyland is not as unique.
When I lived in LA I had a chance to visit the very first and original Disneyland in Anaheim but it was in the pre-digital times...
Recently there was this terrible case of an alligator snapping a child in the Orlando Disneyland resort, but to go to Orlando anyway I would need to arrange an American visa for my daughter, so Paris was much more accessible. Although tourists are currently being discouraged from travelling to France as well...

Hi Mariusz,

I'm so pleased that you, your wife and your daughter all arrived home safely - and also pleased that your daughter enjoyed Disneyland so much! I guess you and your wife also enjoyed it? But maybe you were too big or too old for some of the rides? :o)

This is a fabulous photograph made all the better by your clever use of your very wide lens. The big star on the ground fills the foreground very effectively while the castle seems to tower up forever up to Heaven. And, of course, the colourfully dressed children and adults fill the mid-ground perfectly giving added interest as well as a fine sense of scale.

Glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.


Kind Regards,


Ciao Mariusz
siamo vicini questa sera, ma tu sei armato di....magia e fantasia.
Immagino che bambini e adulti che si comportano come bambini siano i frequentatori più assidui, ma come non condividere tutto questo.

Faktycznie duzo atrakcji jest tam dla starszych dzieci, ale podejscie i przezycie zwiazane z odwiedzinami twojej corki sa na pewno zupelnie inne i na dlugo je zapamieta.
Dobry kadr bajkowego swiata

Hi Bonjour dear Mariusz

Yes so lovely and happy snap image for Disney world.
Actualy Disney in Japan is quite near from my house and my dughter already went there 50 times more. Combination of Synderela castle with unique mozics on the ground is so eye-cathing and fashinating too.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Mariusz,
A great photo of this famous place with very vivid and appealing colours, which contrast nicely with one another. The partly cloudy sky makes a great background and the vertical composition is perfect. Your daughter must have had the time of her life here!

Cześc Mariusz,

Ja byłam w Disneylandzie w Orlando, ale niestety bylismy sami, bez zadnego dziecka. To nie to samo. Wyobrażam sobie, jakNadia sie cieszyła. Jakoś Ada chyba nie przepada za Disneyem, bo sie nie domagała, zeby tam pojechac, jak byli w Paryżu. Zamek jak z bajki, no bo jest z bajki, wzorowany chyba na Segovii. Brakuje mi na tym zdjęciu wyrosnietej Myszki Miki albo Pluto. Wydawało mi sie że miałam zdjecie z tym zamkiem w Orlandu, ale nie widzę.

Zobaczysz, jak sie Twoimi zdjeciami zainspirowałam! Juz była Moszna, będa jeszcze inne zamki :)

Pozdrawiam MAłgorzata

Hi Mariusz,
well framed and composed with the wide angle and the star in the FG, nice colors, well done. Magic for children and also for adults !

Hello dear friend and have a nice time
and a happy new day
this photo changed my mood today and memories
came into my mind from my last visit
to Disneyland nice photo
nice and pleasant details
here we have a magic world

Hello Mariusz,

It seems horrendous that we should be talking about the magic of childhood and terrorism in the same breath!

Your daughter must have been wide-eyed at this!
How wonderful that you were able to give her such an enjoyable treat!
It is almost as if you have stepped from real life into a Disney cartoon ... and a very beautiful aspect of a Disney cartoon
I like how you have used the floor compass so effectively, to guide to the families first, and then, ultimately to the castle.
The pastel colours are perfect to create the right mood and the sky could hardly have been better!
A fine composition sees the stones, at the back of the castle, leading us inwards and creating a good sense of depth.

Have a great day,
Bev :-)
See you Saturday.

Hello Mariusz,

I though at Russia with this type of church, but real wonderful.
Lovely quiet place.
Details and sharpness are exquisite.
An excellent architect and nature picture.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Mariusz
Oh how having a child has totally changed your photo subjects! haha :)

Would you have visited this "Castle" if you didn't have your daughter...probably not right?

but these are wonderful experiences to share and now you have it captured for a lifetime.
it would be fun to show your daughter this post 10, 20 years from now :)

I like that you're showing us your family moments too, not many people on TE do that, so it makes the post that much more special.

great to have the cloud coverage and blue sky, looks great

Hi Mariusz
Un lieu enchanteur qui fait aussi bien rêver les enfants et les grands, j'aime la présentation avec l'étoile mis en avant plan et les couleurs du château de conte de fée, J'imagine la joie de Nadia :-)
belle journée

mariusz hello.. ah disney!..lovely lively shot here from france..very nice work! tfs. dale

Hello Mariusz,
Disney parks always make a jolly pictures, pink in general and the ambiance in those places specifically.
people always added a vivid and vibrant texture, well collected the turrets, originally we saw those in the Segovia castle/palace in Espanea.

*** See my reply on your critique.

Hello Mariusz.
Very nice photo of this known and famous Disney castle in Disneyland Paris park, very good POV to capture in the foreground, the star of the floor, which raises the prospect of the image. Fortunately it seems that not too many people.
A fantastic photo with beautiful natural colors, very good lighting and excellent sharpness.
Very well done. I love.
You enjoy the weekend.

Hi Mariusz,

This looks like Disneyland. The castle looks like something from a fairytale. I am half expecting Rapunzel to appear at the window! Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!
