Photographs - Disney Magic Kingdom; Castle, Main Street, Fantasyland and the Haunted Mansion

Cinderella's Castle with Polka Dots!

A few nights ago we went to Disney Magic Kingdom to take photographs of Cinderella's Castle, Main Street and Fantasyland and the Haunted Mansion.

We stayed for EMH ~ until 3am!  It was wonderful and magical, we felt as if we were in our own world capturing the magic of the Magic Kingdom.

I'd love to share some of the photographs with you here ☺.


The first one I am posting is of the Castle with Polkadots! 

I had mentioned the polka dots in a previous blog post, but I wasn't able to take a picture of it.  

Cinderella's Castle Architecture
I took the next picture as I was getting ready to walk through the castle.  I looked up and noticed the beautiful architecture and just had to snap a shot.


Next we have the mosaics that line the wall inside the castle.  Have you taken the time to enjoy them?  They are absolutely gorgeous!

And of course after you waltz through the castle, you have a beautiful view of the Prince Charming Regal Carousel!

Have you seen this fountain of Cinderella?  It's absolutely beautiful, and makes the perfect silhouette at night ♥.

Zarius took that photograph!

Here is a photo I took up close, so you could see the golden crown painted on the wall.  If you stand at just the right angle it appears to be on Cinderella's head!

I love this picture, the building is beautiful, and matches the castle perfectly.  You can see that we were the only ones in Fantasyland.  It was quite special.

Here you'll find a picture of the castle and it's entrance from Fantasyland.

I love that shot.  The windows on the second level, where you'll find Cinderella's Royal Table are incredible, especially at night!

The colors on the picture above make the castle look surreal!

 Here is one of my absolute favorite pictures of the night.  The Carousel while in motion with the Sword in the Stone.

There were no waits at all on the attractions.  Each ride in Fantasyland has a "0" wait time!!!

The Cast Members were standing out front trying to get us to ride.  They didn't know that we weren't resort guest though, so we didn't take them up on their offers.  

Peter Pan's Flight ~ 0 min. wait time at 2am!

EMH is a wonderful thing!  I would definitely choose a Walt Disney World Resort to stay at to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours at Disney were I on vacation.  You could get more done in 3 hours (12am-3am) than you could in a whole day!

Haunted Mansion in the early morning hours

The Haunted Mansion was even more eerie in the quiet of the early morning.

Haunted Mansion Graveyard

The graveyard was silent and creepy (and awesome!).

 On the way back out I snapped this picture of the castle and Fantasyland inside the Carousel attraction area.  The ride was closed, as it just turned 3am, and the CM let me come in to take this unique picture of the castle.

A view not often seen, and beautiful too!  I love the plants that gave the picture depth.

Of course the kids wanted a picture tying their luck and pulling out the sword ☺.



I love the giant vines that crawl up the walls of Sir Mickey's Gift Shop.

It was past 3 in the morning so we made our way to the front of the park.

Of course we had to take advantage of the missing crowds to get some great pictures of Main Street!

And of course I had to go down my favorite little magical street ...

The Emporium was magnificent, all lit up in it's full glory.

And of the castle with an empty Main Street.

I love this view of the corner of Main Street ♥.

It was an incredible morning spent at Disney Magic Kingdom and I will never forget it ♥.

I hope you enjoyed the photographs as much as we enjoyed taking them!


I'll leave you for now with one of my favorite Castle pictures EVER.  Amy happened to capture this shot as the castle was changing colors and we didn't even know it until after we viewed the shot!
