Photo Flashback! it's a small world

This past Friday 'it's a small world' celebrated its 50th anniversary.  When Deb at Focused on the Magic  suggested Disney Couture for this week's photo topic, I knew I had to honor this classic attraction.  It also happens to have been Tink's very first Disney ride and she will be five in a few days so I'm feeling nostalgic.

Since I started carrying a DSLR camera to the parks, I feel compelled to photograph 'it's a small world' practically every time we take the happiest cruise that ever sailed.  First, the colors and beautiful costumes of the dolls beg to be captured.  And the not-so-dark ride provides a challenge and a chance to improve my skills.

Here are a few favorite images I've taken over the past four years.

Poor Tink fell asleep halfway through the ride.  She had a big breakfast that morning at 1900 Park Fare and was super comfy on Daddy's lap and then shoulder.  This was two days before her first birthday.

  1. The dolls in Small World are cute but Tink is the cutest. Of course Granddaddy could be a tad prejudiced. :-)

  5. Aww bless Tink falling asleep - we took our kiddos to Disney when they were 5 and 11 months and both times Miss E fell asleep on the Kilamajaro safaris - you'd think it would be far too bumpy!
