Disneyland Parade Flashback (2011)

It feels like ages ago that I was an annual pass holder at Disneyland. I used to live about 10 minutes away from The Happiest Place On Earth and spent at least 3 times a week there. Some days it would just be in the morning, catching lunch before the rest of the crazy crowd got there. Other times, I stayed until the fireworks ended.

For any D-land tourist, the Parade was the highlight of their day. For me, I almost never watched it. It became too predictable.

However, one time, I stopped and took some photos using JUST my little HTC cell phone. This was a 2011 cell phone! I’m a little surprised how well the photos turned out, actually.

My favorite shot? When I caught Peter Pan flying…

I wonder how different the parade is nowadays? It would be so cool to be able to take photos using a better camera and see how things have changed.

Have you been to Disneyland lately? Is the parade a whole lot of different from this 2011 parade? I’m curious to find out!

    I live in Florida but never Orlando. I always have to drive a couple of hours to get there, but I’ve also been an annual passholder. it’s great to go for an occasional weekend too. Great shots!

      I agree. It was nice to know there was always a place you could go to to get away for a little while, even at the spur of the moment. Right?
      Thanks for stopping by Carol. And I appreciate the comment love too!

    I love Disney parades! They are so colorful. I have a friend who got me into taking photos of them and it’s one of my favorite things to photograph at Disney. You did great with just your phone!

      Disney parades are colorful indeed! I loved taking pics of it whenever they passed by. I wish I could go back just so I could use my better phone now and also, better photography skills! LOL
