Disneyland Shooting Gallery Goes Nuts

We got to Disneyland at 8 a.m. on Sunday so we could enjoy what we thought would be a relatively “quiet” day in the Park.

And for the most part, it was. Hey, I got to sit in the front seat on Splash Mountain and there was no line, either. In fact, while walking through Frontierland I decided I’d stop to take a picture of the shooting gallery. I figured that since there was not one person playing the game and it’s usually pretty crowded otherwise, this would be the perfect opportunity to get the shot.

So I stood there, took aim and pressed the shutter. And that’s when it happened.

At the firing of the flash, every animated object every sound was triggered. Every owl animal was howling, every horn on every bull’s skull was a-spinning. Thinking it was rather comical, I grabbed my other camera* and shot this clip:

The whole thing reminded me of episode of The Simpsons when the family goes to Itchy and Scratchy Land and the robots go crazy with the camera flashes. Now, I could have stood there and throughly entertained myself for hours on end but hey, The Kid wanted to go see Jack Skellington’s Haunted Mansion Holiday and I can’t blame him for that.

A few passersby were also getting laugh out of it so I wasn’t the only one being entertained by the shenanigans.

So the next time you go to Disneyland/Disney World, give it a try. Just, you know, make sure there are no Disney Cops around when you do.

* A rare occasion. We usually only take one camera.
