Attention to Detail

During our vacation in Disneyland I came to believe that it was the persistent attention to detail that made it so wonderful a place to visit. I took photos of things that caught my eye.

Coccoons dangle above pathways. I imagine these are lights, but I didn't come through A Bug's Land at night.

These stone towers and wooden door are beautiful, and yet high above the crowds below, so no one can even go up there and see it. We can only admire from afar.

  1. Amazing isn’t it. We visited the Walt Disney Museum in San Francisco last year. More of a tribute to the man than the theme park. We really enjoyed it. It’d be fun to work on the construction crew I think.

    1. You know, I just found out that the father of a co-worker of mine did work in construction in Disneyland. He was a pipe-fitter, and worked on several of the water features, like It’s a Small World, Indiana Jones, and one scene that can be seen from the train. It really is a small world!

  2. When Mike and I went many moons ago, the detail was just as intense although the themes have changed since then. Indy Jones was big at that time so that was the big line we waited and waited and waited to get through. Well worth it. It was in that ride that I first noticed the details. After that, I dialed in on everything. Wonderful place for everyone 🙂
