  • Mini Update: Buh-bye Christmas, hello Mardi Gras, and brrrrr!

    I stopped by this afternoon on the way home from work, catching the flip side of what Froggy saw this morning. It was coooooooold as I took monorail red in from Downtown Disney (here in SoCal we put on sweaters when it gets way down into the 50's). The line for the Blue Ribbon was long, and the line for Gibson Girl Ice Cream was....not there. After grabbing a coffee beverage, I took off for a few quick shots:

    First of all, the tree is now down, as are the lights on Mainstreet, and to me, it makes the park feel a bit sadder. I always hate to see the lights disappear after Christmas.



    But...it will be nice to see the park get back to it's pre 50th, pre Halloween normal self again.



    Decorations were also down on the castle...



    and New Orleans Square...



    but were still up down in the area surrounding IASW...





    On the bright side, the Disney Gallery was wide open, on a weekday no less, and I snuck up to spend some more of my hard earned cash before they forget they told us it would be weekends only.




    While I was up top, I snuck out for a shot of Tom Sawyer's Island (Lord knows what it will look like in a few months...)



    and happily was just in time to catch the Mardi Gras hoopla down below..



    I believe this lady's name is....Cleo? Is that correct?



    Cleo and the guys climbed up the steps to the DG and continued to put on quite a show...



    What's up Cleo?



    A few other shots on my way out...



    Lights are off of the Mainstreet Station...



    Then it was time to get home to get out of the cold as our "storm" moves in!!



    I hope it rains tonight, but not tomorrow as Remember Fireworks will hopefully be reappearing!

    That's all for now.

      I like your camera LDF. I love that first shot down Main Street.

          Your photos are amazing! thanks for sharing.

            I'm sure LDF will peek back in but he has a Nikon D70 that I would personally love to have since it beats the heck out of the pictures my little Nikon L5 takes...


            Great pictures by the way!!! Love the mini update!! As sad as it is to see the Christmas stuff taken down, I too think its nice to see Disneyland back to a nice, peaceful "normal" for a while!

              Thank, pengy!!! Those are seriously some of the best and clearest pics of DL I have seen.

              My camera sure the heck doesn't take pics like that either.

                Great pictures LDF. I especially like the last one where you can see the clouds rolling in. It's good to see Disneyland getting back to her old self again :love:

                      You will. And when you do, you will ride that large, white rollercoaster in DCA. It is.....

                      your destiny. :evil:

                              Just because you managed to somehow cast a reality distortion field around me and get me on Space Mountain once... don't think that I'll let it happen again...

                              Now I have spoken! :lol:
