This quick photo session at the Grand Californian Hotel was just the beginning of a full day with this adorable family. It was overcast to start out (as it so often is) so we did some pictures around the courtyard and little garden. We didn’t really have time to explore the rest of the area, but the more I’m at the hotels, the more cute photo spots I find.
I totally think that if pictures inside Disneyland or California Adventure aren’t your thing (or you live local and don’t want to pay for park tickets) the grounds around the hotels and even Downtown Disney itself are such a great options. I’m actually hoping to do more sessions there this year, to avoid some of the crowds of the theme parks. Much less of a hassle for quick Christmas card photos and such, but still has that little flair of Disney magic.
