Walking Port Orleans Riverside before & after Sunset
A few more vacation photos from earlier this month - on my first day up, after checking in to my villa and not having any plans to go to a theme park that day, I spent some time walking around the Springs area which I shared in my last post, but also decided to take a ferry boat over to a different resort that I hadn't really photographed in a few years.
Disney Springs has several resort properties within a few miles of it, and those that are close have boat transportation allowing resort guests to get to the Springs...it's nicer than taking a bus, and more scenic and peaceful. My resort, Saratoga Springs, was quite large, so though my particular building was just a few hundred feet from a bridge that can walk across, the other side of my resort would be a mile away, so a ferry serves that part of the resort. The Old Key West resort also has its own ferry to the Springs, as do the Port Orleans French Quarter resort and Port Orleans Riverside resort.
As with most things Disney, even the hotels and resorts can have intricate theming and landscaping, which can make them a fun way to waste some time, and a good subject for photography. Port Orleans Riverside has lots of southern theming, with some hotel buildings styled after great plantation homes, some designed like bayou homes, and the resort's center like an old river port.
All shots here taken with the SEL18-135mm lens, which was the only one I had with me that first day, and the A6300, and all posted at 1400 pixels on the long side if you click the originals:
