  • [Pictures] Mini-Update 10/2/09: Gallery, Villains Media Day, Pirates Down, & More!

    Testing testing.....is this thing on? I was this close to finishing my quick update and Micechat went down.

    So....I'll try to be even quicker in case it goes down again. I also have a few deadlines coming up today, so I have to type fast.

    GotthatkrispykremedonutandVenticaramelmachiattowit houtwhippedcream?

    Letsgetgoingthen, shallwe?

    I just happened to be in the park today and I wanted to share some quick shots. I may have more photos up later on my Micechat blog, but I just wanted to put these up quickly before heading off in all directions this weekend.

    My first stop this morning was the new Disney Gallery. It's not quite as large as the former Gallery above Pirates, but it REALLY looks nice. :clap: Kudos to Disney for the excellent woodwork and feel of the place. I'm glad that the gallery has a home now rather than slapping a few paintings up at the exit of the Opera House.

    Here's a couple shots of the lobby:






    Here's the first room, which is currently exhibiting several works centered on the HM, as well as several other Disneyland paintings:









    And here is the second room, which is currently featuring works of Adventureland and some Nemo Art as well...










    I think these benches were a nice touch. I have a feeling that this will be a popular spot to cool off and enjoy Disney art on warm afternoons...




    I'm not sure what was in the vault because, gosh darn it, I walked right past it. :blush: And I have a feeling that John Q. Public will also walk right past it because it feels as if it is behind the desk area a bit, and it's not entirely easy to notice, nor inviting:



    Doh. :bang:

    I'll have to check it out next week.


    After reaching the end of Main Street, I noticed some type of media event off on the right, just in front of Tomorrowland. When I walked over, it seemed that just about every Disney villain was waiting for an interview. Not entirely sure what the interviews were for, but I thought I heard something about the Disneyland podcast, but I could easily be mistaken as I was busy shooting.

    I don't know what it is about the villains, but they are so much funnier than the typical park characters. I love Cruella's face in the background here.



    "You people aren't paying me enough for this. WHERE is my agent?"


    Mickey, of course, was among the first to be interviewed...




    along with Jack...








    Captain Hook kept hitting on the Queen of Hearts, but she was having none of it...






    Not sure what Daisy was doing there. Apprently, neither was she. Is she a villain? :blink:




    Jafar tried next, but she blew him off as well...



    Poor Jafar...

      I'll check the Disneyland Podcast on iTunes. If the shooting was for the podcast then I look foward to it.

      Nice pics of the new Disney Gallery! I'll have to check it out next time I go there.

          Excellent photos of the new Disney Gallery! I'm still burnt they evicted it from the Royal Suite, but the new location looks like rather nice.

              I'm glad they move the gallery there gives me to check it out more often now that it's no longer above Pirates. I could never see it up there.

                  Part II:

                  So...Daisy and Captain Hook tried to cheer up Jafar...




                  ...and he seemed in better spirits once his interview began...




                  Although it seemed that Hook was doing most of the talking...















                  But Jack seemed confident that Halloweentime was all about him...




                  The event...(I'm guessing it will have something to do with tricks and treats), seemed to be centered on food. There was a chef on hand to show off some of his creations...











                  ...and pumpkin carvers...






                  And some media types doing media things...










                  I didn't have too much time in the park today, but I did manage to swing by the castle for some shots....except that the water around the bridge had been drained for cleaning...




                  Word to the wise. If you are headed over there this weekend, try not to breathe around the castle or the entrance to Frontierland where they are working on cleaning the ponds. Once they turn those pumps off, it gets a bit...um...fragrant. :yuck:



                  The ducks didn't seem to mind swimming in the brown water though:






                  Those will be dead ducks....very soon. inch:


                  I then headed over to the Haunted Mansion where I spent quite a bit of time taking shots, none of which I will post here, but maybe in my blog later.

                  On the way back, I noticed that the Court of Angels was blocked off for painting...




                  And.....Pirates appears to have gone down for some type of refurb!








                  That's all for now! I have quite a few more shots that I'll try to get up later...maybe mid week next week on my MC Blog at http://micechat.com/forums/blogs/mac-daddy/.


                  One more note. Today was STUNNING walking around the park. If you are out and about today or this weekend, I'll be looking for some incredible shots from you. Here's a quick shot of the MT and TSI as I was on my way out...

                        Great photos as always. We are looking forward to seeing the Gallery on Monday. It looks really nice and I too think those benches are pretty swell.

                        In reading Darkbeers article today he mentions that KTLA and apparently a lot of other TV stations were broadcasting from there this morning to hype the Halloween stuff. Perhaps that had something to do with what you saw.

                        How can they interview Mickey? He doesn't talk. And Daisy certainly did look out of place but that was a cute outfit she had on.

                        The young lady who plays Cruella is awesome. I love to just stand around and watch her interact with the guests. She's a hoot and a half.

                            Great pics!

                            Wish I could have been there. It didn't look very crowded, that must have been nice.

                            Cruella looks like she's having more fun than anyone!

                              Wonderful pictures! I have a feeling they should of put more of those benches in the Gallery for summer if its nice and cool in there!

                              The Gallery looks beautiful. I will miss it where it was before, it was so nice to be able to go up there and look out over the Rivers of America from the balcony... (grumble grumble grumble stupid dream suite that almost no one can use grumble grumble grumble)
