Fowler's Landing - That's Where We Were!

Yes, yes, we know that it's Tuesday and not Monday today.  We're probably playing with fire and risking a disruption of the space time continuum that could destroy the entire universe (granted that's the worst-case scenario) by posting a Monday article on a day other than Mon, but we're just crazy enough to do it anyways!  Truth is, we were playing on another blog yesterday and just didn't have the time to get our usual Monday game done, but we enjoy doing them so much we wanted to make sure we got one out this week regardless.  We hope that everyone is okay with that!

It's Tuesday (this week's Monday!) which means that we get to start out (sort of!) on a fun note and challenge you (hopefully!), our readers, to once again guess where at the Disneyland Resort we took this week's photo.  We saw this one during our rambling this weekend, and thought it might make a good spot to challenge people with.  Not to mention, for some reason Chad is still trying to fathom, it struck us as pretty darn cool.  Maybe we need more protein in our diets or something...

If you're not familiar with our "Magical Mystery Mondays" concept yet, each and every week we come across loads of spots around Disneyland Resort we think would make great picture opportunities, and each and every week we challenge you, our readers, to attempt to guess just where at The Resort we were when we took our pictures.  Some are easy, some are hard (and some are smack dab in the middle!), but we think it's a great way for us to get you involved and commenting on our blog, and people seem to enjoy doing it.  We hope that this week's stacks up and that you guys all enjoy it!

So, do you know where this little beauty is located at the Disneyland Resort?

If you think you know where it is, let us know!  There are a few really easy ways to do so:
We try to keep your answers hidden as best that we can so that more people get a chance to guess, so if you'll help us along by submitting your answers "on the sly" (not a general comment where anyone can see the answer) we'd much appreciate it!  We like to keep it going as long as we can and give everyone a shot.

We'll be back tomorrow morning to post up all the people (we'll edit this same post) who guessed correctly and give you the exact spot where this was taken.

Have fun, don't take it too seriously, and guess as often as you'd like!  We do respond throughout the day with hints to push you along in the right direction, so what have you got to lose?  Guess often and have fun!

Well, now that our day is done we're back to let everyone in on our little spot we chose for this week's game!

We came across yesterday's spot (again) while roaming Disneyland over the weekend, and thought it would make an excellent addition to our collection of Disneyland photos.  And what better way to introduce it to our readers than use it for our "Where Are We?" posts?  We had loads of guesses yesterday, and several correct ones to boot!  Not everyone was right, but with a little help and continuing to guess throughout the day, we had a good number, which always makes us smile.

This week's photo challenge spot can be found inside Disneyland Park, right near the borders of Frontierland, New Orleans Square, and Critter Country, and is located behind the Harbour Galley Restaurant at a little place called "Fowler's Landing".

Unfortunately, many people are completely unaware that this fantastic little area even exists!  But if you meander back through the tables at the restaurant and look to your left, you'll see the little "harbor" where "Fowler's Inn" is located, and our little signage right next to it.  It's a cute little place to hang out and is always quiet because not a lot of people know about it.  There are even some great places back there to sit and relax and eat in peace and quiet.  And when it's not being worked on, there's a little bridge back there as well that will carry you over from Frontierland and into Critter Country, crossing right over Splash Mountain's notorious drop.  We like to stand back there and yell random things at people as they pass by underneath in their rafts, because they can't see us! 

As always, we like to give a shout-out to everyone who came by and guessed, so here they in order of guess and name:
  • MottMike
  • Lori
  • ChevyBurnz
  • rayvencure
  • DisneyAmanda3
  • elliottdaisy
  • Monica
  • KatiePirateTink
And there you have it, our correct guessers for this week!  Thanks to everyone who took a shot at it.  Even if you're not right, everyone should take a guess; you've got nothing to lose!

We'll be back next week with another brand-new spot for our readers to take a crack at!  In the meantime, if you have any suggestions for a spot you'd like for us to do, or a picture of your own that you would like to submit for us to use, drop us a line at daysinthepark@daysinthepark.com.  We love having reader submissions and would love to take a look at whatever spots you might have that you'd like to see here.

Until next week, keep those peepers open and be sure and take in all of the little details all over Disneyland; you never know what little details you might see that you never have before!

I know I've seen this before. Is it along the path from Haunted Mansion to Splash Mountain?
