The original Disneyland was built in Anaheim, California near Los Angeles in 1955. Nowadays there are 6 Disney Park locations in the world: Anaheim, Orlando, Paris, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo. All Disneylands have copied the layout of the original park. The largest complex of parks, Disney World, is located near Orlando, Florida (in this photo). It consists of four theme parks and two water parks. One of the four theme parks called Magic Kingdom corresponds to original Disneyland or Disneyland in Paris. The scale of the Disney World in Orlando cannot be compared to anything else. For example, in the whole world only Las Vegas has more hotels than Orlando area. The largest theme park in the UK can easily fit into Magic Kingdom car park.

I had the pleasure to visit three of the Disneylands so far (Anaheim, Paris, Florida).

This picture presents the iconic castle in the Magic Kingdom, Disney World near Orlando, Florida. Picture taken when people started to gather for spectacular fireworks display.

HERE you can see the photo of castle in Disneyland Paris for comparison.

Hi Mariusz,this isn't in top of my wishes list,but it's sure that it's a unique and original place to visit. All is a fake like in the fairy tales,so it's nice to dream a moment between magic architechtures in this fantastic world.A great capture very sharp,bright and well exposed. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hi Mariusz,

I looks it bit like the Excalibur Castle on the Las Vegas strip. Personally I prefer the many varied & authentic castles of Europe. But seeing as so few Americans have passports I guess this will suffice for them. As a photo it's great with perfect sharpness & framing. Tfs!

Hello Mariusz,
Something tells me that your daughter has chosen the travel destination this time :)
No castle on earth has so many towers and turrets as a Disney castle.
You as a specialist of Disneyland (or Disney World) will be able to tell us if it's possible for visitors to climb in all these towers and especially in the very hightest.
On your picture of Disneyland Paris we see more big children than small ones. Sometimes we all have to behave like a child.
I'm very glad that you have been able to visit the happiest place on earth for you.
Best regards, Paul

Witaj Mariusz,
bardzo ladnie ujete zdjecie togo bajecznego zamku. My bylismy z dziecmi jak byly male, ale w Orlando. Ogolnie to jest co robic, bardzo duzo atrakcji. Super zdjecie.

Hi Mariusz
I'm surprised you didn't capture this one while the fireworks were blasting away...maybe you didn't have a tripod.

hard to tell because of the lighting, but is it the same colour combination as the DisneyLand castle? as always, your shots are super crisp and clear, no problem there! Another family photo for you haha

Hi Mariusz,
Well taken and managed your night shot, pleasant lights and colors, well made, tfs.

Ciao Mariusz
bellissima foto di questo mondo incantato, il sogno di quando ero un bambino, sembrava una così così lontana, quasi come andare sulla luna.
Ma i tempi sono cambiati, oggi è tutto più facile.
Saluti Carlo

Superb capture of this iconic building. That's the original Disneyland! Great shot!


Hello Mariusz
Very nice blue hour capture from Disneyland taken with very good layout and ligth management. Many interesting and usefull notes as well.
TFS and best regards

Hello, Mariusz!

The blue hour gives beautiful colors to the composition, and the light was very well managed here! It seems to be a really magical place, and not only for the kids! Wonderful job!

Mi jakos nie po drodze bylo z odwiedzaniem tych parkow, jak chciałem to nie moglem, jak moglem to nie chcialem ;)
Dobra jakosc i ladny szczegolowy obraz

Hi Bonjour dear Mariusz

Wow so fantatsic and gorgeous night shot for the deraming castle all over the world! The appropiate exposure makes so appealing light-up image as such. Tasty color contarst is so touch!!!!!

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hi Mariusz
A colourful display of the Magic Kingdom! really looks a great place for night photography and you must have been on your glory with all these varying shades of light and glorious colours. This works really great against the darkening sky and your well controlled exposure. Superb, looks like a still from Fantasia.
Wonderful shot, Congrats
Best regards

Hello Mariusz,

I have the feeling that it is a family member that has inspired you to attend this place ... maybe the others, too!
You have taken an excellent night shot, with colours that emphasise the very fantastic appeal of this place. It is place of imagination, of fairy tales and one where childhood dreams seem to find a reality.
You don't mention a tripod but I feel you must have secured your camera to something steady for such good sharpness!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Dobar dan.
Interesantan i lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobra perspektiva i kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak. Lep dvorac u Diznilend parku.
Zelim vam lep dan, sve najbolje u novom mesecu koji je poceo, srecno.

Good day.
Interesting and beautiful look, good text ...
Beautifully shown, good perspective and contrast, nice colors, nice caught moment. Nice castle in Disneyland Park.
I wish you a nice day, all the best in the new month that started, good luck.

A happy place it is, Mariusz, but what about someone like myself that never been there, but still must be happy...
Just a bit of humor, my friend.
Beautiful pink and purple tones against the darkness.
Though I'd tend to crop some part of the lower veg.s area on the picture.
Best regards,

Hello Mariusz.
This nocturnal composition with the famous Disney castle is a marvel, certainly this castle resembles any of the tales of princes, fairies and princesses of children's literature, it is a very harmonious construction and beautiful lines in this fantasy.
Very nice color, which together with the good sharpness and optimal lighting, gives great quality to the image.
Well done. I like very much
You have a good day.
Very best regards

Hi Mariusz,
I am sure your daughter must have been happy to visit this famous theme park.
I must admit, although it's not my cup of tea at the best of times, we fell to it too, when our son was living in Miami. And we enjoted it thoroughly !
Here you have a very good night capture with great management of light and sharpness.
In the middle ground, you can guess the awe of the audience.
Have a good day.

Dear Mariusz!
Neuschwanstein czy Disneyland? Świetnie wykonane zdjęcie. Dobra kolorystyka. Na dole powinien pojawić się Ludwik II Bawarski albo Myszka Miki.
Well done!
