Night Lights

I am doing this post in reverse because here, in the USA, it is Memorial Day and it seems very fitting to start at the end - the end of the Disney World Electric Light Parade. I know it isn’t exactly a Memorial Day float but it does give a nod to patriotism and that’s what Memorial Day honors – a day to remember those who have served our country protecting our freedom.

My son’s photo. Thanks dear!

Before that red white and blue float signaled the end of the parade there were other night lights. Like these sort of other worldly ones in Tomorrowland

and the beautiful lights surrounding Dumbo, the Flying Elephant ride.

I never tire of seeing the castle lit up in evening so I’m going to share this one with you of it reflected in the water. It just never gets old for me – so magical.

We also had our first look at the new Castle Light Show, which I like to refer to as castle wrapping. They seemed to have mastered a way to use projections to change its appearance. It is so very, very cool. I promise to do better next time on the photography – just another reason to go back. (Or do I really need one?)

Rounding out my last couple of night light shots are two more of Electric Light Parade floats. This one showcases Pinocchio

and the first one in the parade featured Tinker Bell. Well, I did say I was doing this post in reverse.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day!
I hope you will join me in taking time to remember those who served.



  1. Hi Sebastian,

    Happy Memorial Day. We are all tucked in for the day cause of the Tropical Storm (yuck).

    Did Miss Ginger get you a red, white & blue vest to wear or a hat? I have a bee-u-tee-ful red, white & blue bow that I am wearing.

    Hugs ♥

  2. We are so lucky to live in a country with freedom, and free speech. All those wonderful soldiers in America and Australia, made this possible.
    Hugs to you all.

  3. Lots of fun :o) A few years ago they did a light wrapping display on the cathedral in Glasgow, it was amazing!

    1. Hi Katy,

      Wow that sounds really really cool!

      Just another reason to travel!


  4. It is good to reflect on the lives of those who have served our country and lost their lives while they were deployed. That is what Memorial Day means to me.

  5. After dark at Disney looks very fascinating with all those lights and colors! I hope you and Sebastian had a nice Memorial Day!

    1. Hi Kay Joy,

      Disney is a very cool place lit up at night - so much to see every where you turn. We did have a nice day. Hope your Monday was a good one too!
