  • LDF's 2/5 TR: TSI update, Train refurb, a room with a view, & my best attempt at HM

    [Edit: More photos added today, 2/7/07 waaaaay down on the bottom. ]

    Maybe I've been under a rock (Penguinsoda will vouch for this) but I don't remember reading that the train was going down for a refurb. So I was a bit surprised when I got to the park this afternoon and found this:





    Did I mention the Monorail was also down this afternoon?

    So...realizing that the DLR was having transportation issues today, I set off down Mainstreet where I was pleased to see that most of the tarps are now off of the castle...




    After reading Fishbulb's saga of TSI over the weekend, I decided to investigate..



    Yup. Deserted. Not a soul on the Island today. I hopped aboard the Mark Twain for a closer look.

    No one on the rafts...




    Nobody on the dock...




    Tigger says "You THINK I'm waving hi. Watch me sucker punch this kid!"




    This is one of my favorite views in Disneyland:





    And...what do we have here? WORK HAS BEGUN ON TSI!!!




    OK...so it's just a ladder, but the Pirate makeover is now officially underway...sort of...

    I guess this pretty much confirms what is going on...






    After my TSI investigation I decided to hang out in NOS. The trouble is....with the train down...




    and Splash down...




    And TSI down, it only leaves POTC and HM on that side of the park.

    :botox:

    Hmmmm....what to do. Well, after catching some jazz...



    I ventured into the Haunted Mansion....

              Burdened with the knowledge that I could only get an aperture of 3.5 (4.5 if I zoom :bang I ventured into the Haunted Mansion to see if I could get ANYTHING except the blurry light streaks I've always garnered in the past.




              First...a disquieting metamorphasis....



              Of course there's always...

              my first attempt...




              My second attempt...



              My third attempt...




              After a quick walk up the hallway...




              and around the corner...



              I hopped into a doom buggy, checked out the groovy aqua colored spooky cloud thing....



              and proceeded to shoot like a maniac....without flash, of course.

              And.....

              Nothin. No Leota, no freaky floating face...nada. Just a bunch in indiscernable swirling colors.

              However, I DID manage to finally get...

              Grandma blowing out the candles...




              And finally...after all these years.....THIS guy...



              (Everything shut down just long enough for me to grab a shot.)


              If you keep in mind that these are supposed to be ghosts, this shot ALMOST works...




              Back out in the daylight, I saw Mary and Burt again today, and wanted to compare them to the Mary and Burt I saw last week. Today was about 85 degrees, and last week was in the 50's:

              Today:





              Last Week:





              So...I'm thinking there's a cold weather costume and a warm weather costume....yes?

              (More to follow....almost done! )

                Like I said. There's nothing else to do on that side of Disneyland.

                  Great pics. I wish had more time to get down to the park.

                  I really like the TSI an DLRR attraction signs, nice to see that the park is paying attention to the little things again.
