ANAHEIM, Calif. — Smoke from a fast-moving Southern California fire created an eerie atmosphere at Disneyland, where visitors snapped photos Monday and shared them on social media.

The Canyon Fire 2 is burning in parts of Anaheim, Orange and Tustin, creating poor air quality throughout the area, and officials have warned residents to be careful while driving.

No smoke alarms have been activated at Disneyland and the parks remain open, officials said.

Visitors took to Twitter and Instagram to share photos at the resort, which is decorated for the Halloween season.

The sky was painted an orange hue and served as the backdrop for the park's famous attractions, including Sleeping Beauty's Castle and the Matterhorn bobsleds ride.

One visitor pointed out on Twitter that the current conditions mirrored the advertisement for the "Halloweentime" decorations.

Another likened a photo of Tomorrowland to the land of Tatooine in Star Wars.

Smoke and ash have been reported in portions of Orange County and western areas of Los Angeles County.
