By Request:
This section was created in response to numerous emails we have received here at disneygeek.com (see we do read and respond to feedback and emails). People kept requesting pictures of their favorite attractions, shops, areas of the park, etc.. We have collected a rather large archive of photos taken over the past couple years (thanks to digital photography for this). So we have created this section to house pictures that you have requested.

To request a image (or set of images) drop us an email at disneygeek@disneygeek.com

  • Disneyland - Main Street Windows (Last additions 4/09/13)
    Every Disneygeek knows the story of the Main Street windows and what an honor it is to have one.. but do you know all of them? We did not so we decided to take a stroll up and down Main Street grabbing a picture of each and every window that had something on it. Here is what we found:

  • Disneyland Resort - Trashcans
    As any disneygeek knows there are themed trashcans everywhere in Disney parks. We had a request come in for some shots of the trashcans of the Disneyland Resort so here is a first pass at them from a couple visits earlier this year and a couple I dug out of the archive. This section hits most of the current ones around the resort but I know its not 100% complete yet.
  • Disneyland Popcorn Carts
    We thought this was an interesting request. Someone wanted to see the Popcorn Carts around Disneyland, specifically they wanted to see the roastie-toasties or "slaves" in the carts. The Disneyland carts all have characters that turn a crank with a small pop corn cylinder. Here is a look at the carts we found on our last few visits.
  • Walt Disney World Resort - Trashcans
    Due to the popularity of the Disneyland section, I started this section with some shots from recent trips. This is just a start and no where near as extensive as the Disneyland collection. Enjoy shots from all four parks, a couple resorts, and Downtown Disney.
