22 Favorite Disneyland Photos Plus Time Lapse Video

I’ve been visiting the Disneyland Resort pretty regularly for 12 years now. I know that’s much less than some of you and more than others, but it’s something I never thought would be possible when I was a little girl. I’ll tell you about that in another post. Anyway, every time I’m there, the magic infects me. I feel light on my feet and enjoy every minute. So we keep a special photo album of Disneyland pictures to hold onto the memories.

Each visit is different. Some days we want to conquer it all and ride as many attractions as we can. Some days we take it more easily and enjoy other lesser-known parts of the park, like Innoventions in Disneyland and The Animation Academy at Disney California Adventure. But one thing’s for sure, every day at Disneyland makes me feel younger and happier.

If you haven’t had your chance to visit yet, or if you just love seeing it from another person’s perspective, enjoy these pictures of some favorite attractions and magic moments. And if you click on this video, there’s a fascinating time lapse video of one day in Disneyland created by Matt Givot and Dan Douglas. They used over 20,000 images to create it!
