One of America’s most iconic sites has taken on an incredibly eerie aesthetic, with ongoing wildfires in Californi, turning Disneyland into a horrifying visual snapshot of the crisis.
Two large fires continue to burn in the state, with reports already of 17 people killed and tens of thousands of people forced to evacuate, and the fires surrounding the southern city of Anaheim have caused the famous amusement park, usually a symbol of whimsy and joy, to appear appropriately nightmarish.

The park, whilst still remaining open, has had to alter several of its activities, including cancelling firework shows:

Emergency personnel continue to combat the ongoing wildfires and officials are also considering imposing a curfew in affected areas to prevent any instances of looting on damaged or destroyed properties.
