For some reason, I never seem to make it on to the Storybook Land Canal Boats until night time. Even on this day, I didn’t quite make it until later in the afternoon. Although I love my blue skies and sunshine, I really liked these golden tones and decided to run with it. Variety is the spice of life, right?
On this particular voyage I asked to wait to be seated in the front row of the boat, which was a great idea. I captured some nice shots of the water with no guests in my way, and even managed to catch the Casey Jr. Circus train making it’s rounds.
For me, Storybook Land is one of those timeless gems at Disneyland Park that some people forget about. There is so much detail and upkeep around this attraction that really deserves more credit: from the small details of the miniature villages from classic Disney films, to the immaculate maintenance of the landscaping. This attraction features so much precise hedge-work, perfectly-planted florals, and expertly-trimmed tiny trees. Aside from the flora, the fauna plays a hand in this too. One of my favorite things about this attraction is the many ducks that hang out and sleep around the small villages and islands, looking like giants in comparison to the small-scale surroundings. I have always said, if I were a Disneyland duck, I would want to sleep in Storybook Land for many reasons: the beautiful surroundings, lots of water, dark at night with a little ambient light, and zero foot traffic!
