Yesterday I headed over to Disneyland. I knew this would be my last trip until late August and Early September. So I knew I had to make it a worthwhile trip photography wise. So as we were walking over to find a place to eat and to ride Indiana Jones, Pirates, and the Haunted Mansion we were walking right by Rivers America right next to Big Thunder Mountain and I looked to my right and I saw the Columbia in utter darkness making it's way to the main area of Rivers of America. It hit me then that it was right before the canon exploded during Fantasmic. It was a very surreal thing to be walking side by side a dark ship right before they're about to perform their segment for Fantasmic.
I then quickly turned on my camera and started snapping away photos. I found a perfect little spot to the very right of the Mark Twain loading area. That is where I snapped this picture from. It was an absolute rush. As a kid this was my favorite part of Fantasmic and one of my favorite Disney films hands down. It was also a rush just seeing the ship make it's way over and knowing that the loud canon being set off is making it's way over as well.
