Big thunder (Taken with Cinemagram)
chatting with the cast members around Disneyland
Deep in a shadowy corner of Magic Kingdom’s Haunted Mansion, pretty much ensured to be seen by less than 1 percent of guests, is this final painting of the group of so-called Sinister 11 portraits that used to be housed at the very start of the ride before Anaheim’s lightning effect portraits kicked them out.
This small stretch of wall between the ballroom balcony and the attic is pitch black in person, and only the vaguest hint of a square object is visible if you are looking for it under normal show lighting conditions. Apologies for the flash (the one instance of such I did on the entire trip inside an attraction) but this is simply impossible to see without that - the ‘opera glasses’ ghost pictured is one of my favorites among artwork created for the Mansion (and even retains a bit of that 70’s Keane ‘big eye’ artwork vibe) and she is doubly creepy when you consider she’s there in full darkness, watching you as you go past, unseen. Photo by me obviously.
Animatronic Lincoln from the 1964 World’s Fair Illinois pavilion, on display at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I love robo-Abe.
Photo by me of course.
Acceptable Disneyland breakfast/lunch variation #27. (Hungry Bear lower level seating is a requirement of this configuration)
Photographing the Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom during the fireworks proves to be most helpful.
