Happy Halloween - Disney style

I wanted to wish my three loyal readers (who cares if they are all related to me) a Happy Halloween!

This weekend my family and I are going to the happiest place on earth, no not Disney World, but the O.G. Disneyland (in Anaheim).  Disneyland opened in July 1955 with a total investment of $17 million. Walt Disney's brother, Roy, discouraged the creation of Disneyland because he believed it would lead to "financial ruin."

Um, Roy, I just heard that Disney paid $4 billion to buy LucasFilm and the "Star Wars" franchise. Not to mention they already own Pixar and Marvel! Talk about owning the world. But I digress, this isn't a blog about smart purchases or world domination. Disneyland always brings me back to my childhood and I now enjoy watching our kids experience the wonder of this place. The design of Disneyland is so unique for amusement parks with it's lands and how each was crafted so you feel like you are walking into a different time and place.

I love taking photos of places I go and finding the beauty in areas that maybe others may not notice. Disneyland is no exception.  When I went last year during the Halloween season, I was able to capture the magic of Disneyland and the feel of Halloween in the following shots:

I'm hoping to capture more amazing shots this year as well.  Disneyland always does a great job decorating their park with their holiday themes. 

I hope you have a safe and fun Halloween.  Most of all as the great horror director George Romero always says "Stay Scared!".
