  • Trip Report Rocker's New Year's Eve Trip Report

    December 31- The last day of 2008

    I had heard that the Micechatters were going to be at Disneyland for a New Year's Eve celebration. I had never been to Disneyland on a New Years Eve on the four years that I have been an APer.

    Well, I decided to head on down to the park. However, because I had a Deluxe, I was blocked out. But I also needed a parking pass for my AP, so I decided to update to Premium.

    Anaheim Police making sure New Years Eve is safe for everyone

    While on the way to the Main Gates and into security, I noticed they had a new line for those without bags. I personally think it is great for those who don't have any bags.

    Off to pay for the upgrade. $150 more to update for a Premium. WHY?!

    When I got inside the park, I noticed that it was getting very busy, even though it was early in the morning.

    A very crowded Main Street

    Horses? We don't need no horses!

    I had some time before the meet, so I decided to go on a ride. I went to the waiting boards to look at the lines, and many of them were already approaching 20-25 minutes to almost 75 minutes for the major attractions.

    I had decided to head on over to Critter Country and go on Pooh since I hadn't been on it in a long time.

    Hey, Mickey D, where are you?

    Empty docks- no Columbia!

    Fowler Inn

    Nice garden, dude.

    Honeycomb Jam!

    In my honest opinion, Pooh is a good dark ride, it's a quaint one, if you will.

    After Pooh, it was getting towards the time to start the meet, so I headed on back to Main Street and towards the hub.

    We had heard of a schedule for the day, so we decided to head on over to the Enchanted Tiki Room at around 12:40-ish instead of going straight to lunch.

    Off to the Tiki Room

    DIP, me , and Liz

    The Enchanted Tiki Room is always a lot of fun. I always like the music of it, and it even makes me sing along. A great show, and is fast becoming one of my favorites.

    After Tiki Room, we headed on over to White Water Snacks. Let me tell you something: they always have great food every time we go.

    Off we go

    Dusty then came up with an idea: we should go through DCA, and go get fastpasses for Soarin.' So we decided to do just that, THEN go to WWS.

    All right, let's go eat.

    But first, a little detour.

    Fishbulb fiddling with his camera.

    I wonder if that really works....

    Okay, now let's eat.

    Nachos con asada, queso, y sour cream.

    "I hate when you look at me like that."

    In the end, the food at White Water was delicious as usual.

    After lunch, we decided to go for some wine over at the Trattoria in DCA, so we headed on over.

    The construction for the Grand Californian

    GRR was only a 5 minute wait

    Everyone was ordering wine, so I chose to get that. I usually like the Red Wine since it's kind of sweet, so I asked the others what was the best of the red wine. Michael suggested the Paggio Del Popa, so I chose it.

    PEZZ surprised us on the way in

    "Dude, are you old enough to drink?"

    Here is the thing: we had planned to go to the Muppet Vision showing at around 4:00, but because we had so much time, we decided to go to the Blue Sky Cellar.

                      It looks like you had a very fun and entertaining New Year's Eve. I wish I could have joined the fun, but decided to go on New Year's Day. Great Trip report they are all fun to read and very funny. See you at Sundays meets.
