DDW Pic 1455. Four Years of Pics

Cinderella Castle
Today marks the four year anniversary of my first "Digital Disney World Pic of the Day." On August 26, 2011, I posted a photo of the Magic Kingdom auto plaza entrance. Since that day, I've added a new picture nearly every day for the last four years. At the time, I was working at a job that I didn't like, and Digital Disney World was a way for me to stay connected to the magic on a daily basis. 

Less than a year after that first picture, I started WDW Guided Tours, and I've been fortunate to create a career doing what I love. The first year of pictures were almost entirely from Disney vacations. However, most of my shots since then were taken while giving tours at the parks. It is fun to look for things to photograph on any given day. Sometimes I have something in mind, and other times I just like how a random shot turns out.

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who continues to enjoy my daily pics. The photos have been viewed close to 200,000 times, and I'm grateful that people continue to check them out. Also, I've been lucky enough to have many of my shots published in a new book about Walt Disney World, which I will write more about soon.

As I was waking through the Magic Kingdom today, I was looking for a good photo-op for tonight's anniversary pic. I decided that Cinderella Castle would be the most appropriate shot I could take. It is truly the iconic symbol of Walt Disney World.


  1. A genuine success story - great pics.... can't wait to see the New Disney World book (with your pictures) All the best going forward......dd
