There is something special about the parks of Walt Disney World after the sun has set and the lights have come on. The glow on the rockwork, the subtle way the shadows play against the cracks and carvings, and the neon of yesterday or tomorrow beckoning us away from today all add a spark to the atmosphere that cannot be found during the daylight hours.
Photographers clamor for that perfect photograph of the pavilions in World Showcase at night. Pictures of the silhouette of Everest and the animal carvings found on the Tree of Life after the wildlife has gone to sleep are feathers in the cap. However, for my eye, Disney’s Hollywood Studios offers some of the best nighttime photographing, or strolling atmosphere, of any park in Walt Disney World. From lighting a village from long ago in a galaxy far, far away, to the hum of the neon illuminating Hollywood’s golden boulevards, there is nothing like it. Let’s take a walk, shall we?
