  • Trip Report 12/11-14 Whoa! It's Another Christmas Trip: A Kuzcochik Trip Report

    Well, I'm sick which is lame
    I just got my car fixed which is also lame but good.
    It's 50-ish degrees outside and has been raining all day which is nice
    My finals are over which is really good!

    And now it's time for a trip report... which I hope is another good thing
    (also, extra points if anyone can guess what song I stole my title for my TR from )

    Yes, it was time for Darkwing Chuck and I to visit the Land o' Disney during the holidays cause we're cool like that... yeah... cool... *shifty eyes*

    Anyway, Thursday morning we took off (at a reasonable hour for once) California bound. We reached the park by about 1pm and were sent up up up up to the top of the parking structure above all the cars we dashed away dashed away dashed away all... or something like that.

    It was the first time both of us had ever parked at the tippy top so we immortilized it with lame arm length shots of ourselves (cause that's what we cool kids do.)
    It was peculiar how high up we were


    And apparently we weren't too happy about the height


    Our first stop of the day was DCA because we were on a super secret mission. As to not give away anything I will speak in some code: We had to save the uppets-may who were lost in ime-tay. Unsen-Bay and Eaker-Bay sent us secret instructions to escue-ray em-they from 1937-ay?

    Our first clue led us to the yperion-hay. This was me being super sneaking and running to the other side of the fenced off courtyard


    The next clue led us to the orcerer's-say orkshop-way.


    I was very very committed to helping those guys. See the determination in my face :P


    Where would our next clues lead us?


    After finishing all our assignments and helping save the Muppets and time as we know it, we were awarded with a pretty cool prize. Plus we had to show off that we were nerds w/ Chuck's Back to the Future Shirt and my Kermit shirt... get it cause it's Muppets and time travel... we might need lives (All kidding aside, the Time Rewinder quest was a whole lot of fun and I hope Disney keeps doing things like this in the future )


    Since we were on that side of the park, we first headed to get a tortilla. Inside the preshow we ended up quoting much of the video w/ a group of people we didn't know. By the end we were all laughing so hard we were crying and people that had no idea what was going on just stared at us :P

    We then went up to Mania. The empty hole known as Paradise Pier was fairly unnerving and makes the place look like the desert. I really wish they'd put some kind of walls around the area like they do when they drain the Rivers of America. it just looks so weird!


    On our way back to ride Tower of Terror, we ran into the Delta Daddy-O's. These guys are great!






    Outside of Tower we met a friendly monster who scared because he cared




    And we went on his attraction... Roz was ready for the holidays (on another note: how long have they had the doors open on holiday themes, the one's with the yeti and george and all that. It was really neat and I've never seen it before!)


    the moon was almost full over the land of Tomorrow


    This trip we decided to do somethings we don't often do. First stop was Sleeping Beauty's Castle (which is AMAZING! But i'll get to that later) then on to the Carousel
    We were excited... I think...


    Okkay, well at least I was


    Chuck was pensive (?)


    The 8th Wonder of the World... the top of our heads!


    After a walk past the Reindeer Roundup and some giggling about elves (which was a theme for the trip and one I plan not to explain) we wanted to go to Big Thunder. As we rounded the bend, Darkwing Chuck saw the Mark Twain was running (b/c there was no Fantasmic). We had tried to go on the Twain at night several times this year but kept running out of time, so we hurried over to the dock.

    Even cooler than getting to go was that we talked our way up into the Wheel House! First time I had ever been up there
    The Castle & the Matterhorn from the wheel house (this pic does no justice!!)


    (neither does this one)


    One blurry iso-y shot. The best one I took


    Look at me, driving a boat


    After some Big Thunder and I think Mansion... honestly I don't remember what we did, but eventually we decided to try to watch Believe! b/c we were afraid it might get winded or rained out if we waited til later in the trip.

    Some shots of Sleeping Beauty's Castle... cause lord know we never see enough of those :P




    A very chilly Kuzcochik (me freezing ended up being another theme of the trip)


    And here are a bunch of Believe in Holiday Magic shots. I'm really proud of these




    We also decided the song for Believe is one of the dumbest ever. Especially because of the line "Remember the Candy!" which is sung w/ such heartfelt emotion that it becomes ridiculous! Anyway...



    My absolute favorite shot











    The castle exploded as it often does at the end of a fireworks show and then it started snowing. Now while the Believe song may be lame, that version of "White Christmas" always chokes me up.

    But with that we reach the end of Day #1... oh, but don't worry, there are 3 more days to come. Huzzah! And (since I'm apparently in a weird mood) you can expect more weirdness soon

      I expect to see something about me in this trip report

      And that song is slightly strange...

          Good Report, KC. I like how the Firework Pics came out (and yes, I too am glad that finals are over for you). What kind of camera do you use?

            Kuzcochick - I just love your trip reports. And your photos are wonderful in this one! Five stars for that shot of the castle from the wheelhouse! Just stunning....

            And great fireworks shots as well. Looking forward to the rest.

                aw, sucks that you are sick. But, looks like you had a really great time. I LOVE the pictures of the castle and fireworks. Those came out really nice.

                  Assuming she still has the same as me, I believe it is a Sony cybershot DSC-H9

                    Is that what it says? I swear it sounds like "Remember the candy".... and will sadly be how I hear it forever.

                      Yeah! If they ever create a "how to" make a trip report on Micechat, they should look no further then KC's.

                      Great start, I'll be looking for the rest.

                          great trip report. I loved the night shots from the Mark Twain -I've never seen that view before.

                            Hmmmm, A Kuzcochik trip report?

                            Internet: Hey Melonballer! Do you want to read another Kuzcochik trip report?
                            Melonballer: DO I!!
