Review: Disneyland: Sunrise To Sunrise

I was recently able to read the new TouringPlans eBook, Disneyland: Sunrise To Sunrise, by Tom Bricker.  This e-book is the first of it's kind from TouringPlans, but hopefully, it will not be the last!

Disneyland: Sunrise to Sunrise is an eBook with over 200 photos from the “One More Disney Day” event on Leap Day at Disneyland.  The idea was born from the fact that Tom spent the entire day at Disneyland for the One More Disney Day promotion and he captured the whole event.  All photos included in this eBook were taken on this single day.  

As I'd mentioned previously with my Disney Food Blog review, I'm relatively new to this whole eBook idea.  At first, I was a little leery on the concept.  I like my books in book form!  However, I am quickly realizing that I am quite enjoying this whole eBook phenomenon.

So, what are my thoughts about Disneyland:  Sunrise to Sunrise?

I absolutely loved it! First of all, the pictures are sick.  And I totally mean that in a good way.  I have been a fan of Tom Bricker's work for literally YEARS!!!  I've watched him grow as a photographer and I have always been in awe of the work that he does.  The photos that can be found in this book are simply phenomenal!  Tom's photos are simply gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!   

Another thing I loved about this book were the little captions that were included to help describe each photo.  I really appreciated how the descriptions weren't just of what the photos actually were, but they also included tidbits of history and other information to help enhance your enjoyment of the book.  I learned quite a bit that I didn't know before.

Perhaps I loved this book so much because it couldn't have come out at a better time.  You see, I'm planning my first ever trip to Disneyland in July and I loved the opportunity to get to see things I've never seen before.  I am, of course, SUPER familiar with Walt Disney World, but Disneyland is really more of an enigma.  Reading this eBook really made me look forward to finally being able to get to Disneyland after all these years of waiting. (And trust me...I didn't know the excitement could get any higher!) 

I really appreciated the coffee table nature of this book.  It honestly looked like something I would have displayed in my family room, not necessarily something I would have on my e-Reader.  I almost wish that this book was available for purchase in a hard backed version.  It would SO be on my table if it were! 

However, I will say I have one tiny issue.  Really, it's not much of anything, but the photos in this book are so spectacular that they are meant to be enjoyed on a large scale.  With that being said, I don't have an iPad or an e-Reader of any kind, so I originally read this e-book on my iPhone.  While it's doable, (and certainly if that's the only option you have, I still suggest buying the book) it's certainly not something I would totally recommend.  Once I viewed it on my computer (also a viewing option for you), the beauty popped even more and the captions were a LOT easier to read.  This eBook is meant to be seen by a larger screen for sure!

I agree Rikki. This eBook was a great read, and I've got a copy on my desktop just so I can browse through the pictures on my down-time at work. I liked the cohesive feel that all of the pictures were taken on ONE day. Seriously Tom Bricker is an animal!
