Downtown Disney Signage Photography

Downtown Disney: Sparkling lights and neon signage

Last week I shared photos and a short film on Flying over California. Today I’m sharing more of the photos from this trip. I stayed in a hotel in Garden Grove, about a 10 minute drive from Downtown Disney. I highly recommend visiting during the evening so you can walk around and see the sparkling lights. Watch the short film below to get a glimpse at Downtown Disney at night.

A sparkling sandwich

I was drawn to this one sign in particular. It’s a funny name, Earl of Sandwich, but the lights of this restaurant are enchanting as they sparkle in the evening.

Always look for the light

I fell in awe of the purple lighting of the Disneyland Hotel (you can get a better feel for it in the video above). The silhouette of the palm leaves added to the mood of the moment. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, always look for the light and capture these moments. I look at this photo and I’m immediately taken back to the moment. I can hear the kids and their parents walking by. I feel the crisp cool air breeze through my hair. I see the colors, the light, and time stands still.

Charismatic jazz

Despite the christmas colors, I love the charismatic nature of this sign.
