On Sunday, August 25, 2013, we hosted the very first A Waltz Through DisneyLAND!
P.W. and Amy Melissa created a scavenger hunt to test seven teams on who could have the best day at Disneyland. The competitors were fantastic! Creative team names, some had team shirts, and everyone really got into the spirit of friendly competition.
So how do we determine who has the best day? We tested them! Each team received a booklet with a series of questions and tasks that you had to complete. Every attraction had a question to prove that a team rode the ride. Photo ops were encouraged for more points. Even an iconic Disneyland food could earn a team bonus points!
By the power vested in the AWTD blog, P.W. has left the blogging up to me this week! Yikes. I guess it is a good call since this week will be a series of four photo galleries (which don't really require writing. I'll just let you geek out on the pics instead!).
So here it is! We bring you our coverage of the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, presented by D23. Though I'm sure there is much more in the archives than was brought to this location, the exhibit is a great presentation of Disney animation, Disneyland history, live-action movies, and Reagan/Disney memorabilia.
For an amateur photographer, I attempted to capture everything, and hoped that the glare of the lights wouldn't affect the images or the dimness of the rooms wouldn't distract me from the necessary focus. WELL! IT DID! LOL! Still, I have a few salvageable shots that I present to you in today's post: Early Animation
Unfortunately, our Disneyland section of the blog will be going on a bit of a hiatus for the remainder of the summer. Our Annual Passes have us blocked out until September and we are plum out of photographs. We will retroactively cover all your favourites, beginning with The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad AS and P. Please and thank you.
P.W. & Amy Melissa
