Another Mundane Shot of the Most Amazing Sight on Earth

    Newer Older

    So the question is, how can it be a mundane shot if it's of the most amazing sight on earth? Well, it can't. No matter how many times I see the Castle, and no matter how many pictures I see of the Castle, I am awe-inspired each time.

    I think it says a lot about something when you just sit and stare at it, and become teary eyed. That's how it is for me and the Castle. When I hear the Kiss Goodnight, it does it for me everytime.

    "Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, on behalf of everyone here at the Magic Kingdom, we thank you for joining us today for a magic gathering of family, friends, fun, and fantasy. We hope your magical journey with us has created wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. Walt Disney said that the Magic Kingdom is a world of imagination, hopes, and dreams. In this timeless land of enchantment, magic and make believe are reborn, and fairy tales come true. The Magic Kingdom is a place for the young and the young at heart. A special place where when you wish upon a star, your dreams can come true. Until we see you again, have a safe trip home. Thank you, and goodnight."

    Is going to Walt Disney World once, twice, three times a year odd? Nah. What's odd is not expressing some sort of emotion when you see this beautiful sight. I guess you can count me in "the young at heart" group, because this is a sight I will always love to see. I feel sorry for those who just don't get it.

      Wonderful! It brings a tear to my eye every time i see it too. Even the Disney intro to their movies gets me all misty. You've done a beautiful job capturing a place that's very special to me (my husband proposed in the castle and we were married at the wedding pavilion with the castle in view during the ceremony). Thank you for sharing :)

      Great. Though evil. This photograph is likely to cost me a lot of money. I need to go back, and soon.

      I am in awe!

      This is my favorite shot of the castle on Flickr yet. The contrast of the blues to the soft greenish lights of the foreground is amazing!
