Mad Tea Party Disneyland

Some fun facts about the Mad Tea Party ride.

1.  Disney didn't design the ride.  Arrow Development was an outside company that designed many of the Disneyland opening day rides.

2.  The Mad Tea Party is at 5 of the Disney theme parks

3.  The ride was slowed down in 2004 when a guest slipped out of the Tea Cup.

4.  There was once a Golden Tea Cup to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Disneyland.

5.  It's not unusual to see Alice riding the Tea Cups.

To get the sense of implied motion, I need a relative long shutter speed.  This shot was set to 1 second shutter speed, F/4.0, ISO 100.  At such a slow shutter speed, a tripod is a must.

Have fun capturing the magic of Disney.
