  • Trip Report Disneyland Resort Birthday Trip Report - 8/5 & 8/6/08

    So this past Tuesday & Wednesday I went to the Disneyland Resort for my birthday, & I had a great time as usual.

    I started the day off on Tuesday at California Adventure with a ride on Toy Story Midway Mania!





    Then I went on the Sun Wheel.



    Next up I walked over to the other side of the park for a ride on Soarin' Over California, with a Fastpass that I got when I entered the park.





    I then went to the Boudin Bakery Tour.



    After that I headed round to use my Fastpass for Mulholland Madness.



    As it was my birthday, a special meal was in order, so I headed out of the park & into Downtown Disney for the lovely Rainforest Cafe.





    Then I hopped on the Monorail for a ride into Disneyland Park.



    First up I rode Star Tours.



    After that my parents headed out of the park, so I stayed in for a while & watched the parade.













    From there I wondered down to the front of the park, following the parade & caught the end of it leaving the gates.



    Then I headed to Ariel's Grotto to get my picture taken with Ariel.





    I caught a glimpse of Mary Poppins & Bert, so I grabbed a photo with them too.



    And on my way out of the park back into my hotel, I met Minnie.



    I then chilaxed at my hotel for a couple hours, & headed back into Disneyland around 7pm. Here are a few photos from my hotel.















    When I got back the park I first rode Pirates of the Caribbean, followed by Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters.



    After Buzz, we had a little while to relax before our Fastpass's for Space Mountain became active, so we saw a tribute band by the name of Tomasina at the Tomorrowland Terrace stage.



    Then it was time for Space Mountain!!!



    After a quick ride on the Autopia & Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, I saw Fantasmic!









    So with that, that is the end of day one... However, on to day two, where I started my day going to check out the line at Toy Story Midway Mania, however it was way longer than we wanted to wait, so we skipped it. Instead I played one of the Midway Games & won a little fish.





    After that, I headed round to the Mission Tortilla Factory & got a free pack of 12 tortillas for my birthday!



    Then I headed into Disneyland Park where the first attraction there was a Horseless Carriage ride up Main Street USA, followed by Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. My stomach was calling after that so I headed round to the Golden Horseshoe for some chicken strips! It started getting really hot after that, so we went to ride the Matterhorn Bobsleds & Haunted Mansion. We chilled around for half an hour while we waited for our Indiana Jones Adventure Fastpass's to become active, & then we rode that. Finally we ended the day with Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years, a little film on the history of Disneyland.

    THE END!

                    Whoa! What is up with Artoo-Detoo in that photo? He's facing 90-degrees counterclockwise from his normal position.

                    Has anybody else got recent photos to compare? Exactly when was he rotated to this new position?

                    And... WHY?
