FINALLY! Photos from our December trip...

Post by spaulo » Feb Thu 21, 2008 11:47 am

So it only took me, oh, two months and change, but I have finally gotten up a good set of photos from our trip to Walt Disney World back in December. So, yeah, all the holiday deccos are up in these shots, hope no one minds.

Here is a link to the set on Flickr

And here are some example shots...

The Inferno Barge was certainly working during IllumiNations!

Dream FastPasses! WOOHOO!

Y'know, I may hate this thing... and I do... but it sure is photogenic.

Mmmmm... S'mores....

What is a dream fast pass? Is it for all of the rides?

Great pics, thank for sharing! Loved the tequila bottles :D

Bingo. One pass each for every FastPass-enabled ride in the park in which you receive the Dream FastPass. We got ours getting on Tower of Terror, so they were good for everything at Studios.

Great pics, thanks for sharing. Love the tequila shot.

And, man, how I love the Boardwalk. It's really beautiful. I hadn't actually ever been there before our last trip. Hoping to spend more time there in April.

NICE! I would say major score on getting one of those!

Wow! Great pics! It looks like you had a really great trip!

Although, the crowds in the first few pics of the MK - WOW! I wouldn't want to be in that mess. :shock:

Not a big fan of 'the hat' there either but i took some nighttime photos on our November trip & it does look gorgeous! Very nice pics, can't wait to see any more you have!

Which resort did you stay at?

We stayed at the BoardWalk Inn. The series of photos near the end of the set was every hallways we had to walk down to get from the lobby to our room. It took forever after a day at the parks!

And if you want to see more of my Disney photos, I have a few sets up on Flickr.

I'm sure I will bring my camera the next time we go to Disneyland, too (two months!)

Awesome, we stayed at the Boardwalk Villas in August '06 & loved it.... except for the long winding hallways. Did you have problems with the bus service there? We actually ended up taking cabs often b/c the bus sharing always caused our buses to be full by the time they reached us after the Swalphin/YachtBeach. It was CRAZY. I sware a lot skipped our resort too b/c they were too full by the time they got to us.

You seem to get great night/low light shots. What kind of camera do you use? Also, do you use any kind of default setting to get such great night pics?

Love the night shots! Where are the ones taken that have the whole buildings covered in lights - it's not main street is it?
