Mountains have been a tradition at Disney Parks around the world for over 50 years. The Mountain are visually stunning but also play an important psychological role to Guests brave enough to scale their peaks. Mountains are mysterious, dangerous and are only for the brave at heart. They hide their internal workings and offer no peek at what lies inside. This kind of idea was exactly what Walt Disney and his Imagineers wanted to do when designing Disneyland. Up til that point in time (and still to this day), anyone could build a roller coaster on a parking lot and people would ride it. However, when you hide all of that steel and distract the Guest from what truly lies inside, those are the attractions that they will remember for a lifetime.

The Dark Rides: A Disneyland Tradition
A Disney Holiday
Tis' the season! To celebrate the most magical time of year at the Disneyland Resort, The Disneyland Minimalist will be bringing 5 new posters to ring in the season! "A Disney Holiday" is the title of the new series and will be focusing on the famous entertainment, attractions and decorations that make Disneyland timeless year in and year out.
My absolute favorite thing about entering Disneyland is that everyone passes underneath this plaque after walking through the gates. The troubles of work, politics, religion and life are left behind and people find happiness of their own while visiting this special place. Yesterday, Tomorrow and Fantasy are all ideas people can relate to and a feeling of optimism comes to mind when thinking of them. This piece is a combination of several attractions that I feel truly define Disneyland and set it apart from the competition. Hope you enjoy it!
