In 2010 my family ventured to Disney World in December – timing our trip so that we would arrive home on Dec. 22 -plenty of time to be ready for Christmas day at home.
It was our first holiday trip to Disney World and it did not disappoint. The decorations were over-the-top fabulous. Gorgeous decorated trees in every park, resort and retail store. Special merchandise is available in the shops and even the shows & parades were super amped up.
The highlight for me though was Cinderella’s castle, dripping with “ice crystals” and morphing into a purple-y, pink & blue winter delight. I took many photos of the castle on this trip.
This was before I began toting my heavy DSLR into the parks so all l I had was a Canon powershot point & shoot. Unfortunately I had the zoom settings on but was unaware of this until I began comparing my photos with my son’s cell phone shots. No wonder I could not capture the entire castle in my frame – lol! I finally fixed it and now even 3 years later as I edit these photos- I am thinking “hey, not too bad”!
It’s tough to capture Disney at night AND still remain present with family members enjoying the spectacle unfolding as every moment goes by.
