To celebrate the upcoming release of the Disney Pixar movie Monsters University on June 21st, Disney’s Magic Kingdom was open for 24 hours on May 24th. The fun began at 6 am Friday and ended at 6 am Saturday. Walking around a theme park during the middle of the night gives you a magical feeling. Everything just looks different for some reason.
I walked around with my camera gear all night so I could capture some different images. I saw the makings of this shot earlier in the evening, but the water wasn’t quite still enough to get this smooth reflection. At 3:21 am I got to take this shot. I couldn’t believe how calm the water was. This was exactly what I was looking for.
The boat is the Liberty Belle. It is what makes the Liberty Square Riverboat ride. It takes passengers on a scenic half-mile journey around Tom Sawyer island. Here is a link to the website for more information about this ride. The Haunted Mansion can be seen lit up in purple in the background.
