At first glance, this appears to be a normal nighttime shot of the Magic Kingdom entrance. However, if you look closely you will see security guards manning the bag check stations, and very few guests nearby. In fact, this isn't a nighttime photo at all, but actually a pre-dawn shot. During the weeks around Christmas, the park opens at 7:00 am. Guests start arriving around 6:30, which is about the time I snapped this picture.
