  • Trip Report The One I've Been Too Lazy to Post: A Kuzcochik Trip Report

    Okay, so I haven't done a good Disneyland trip report since May and the Gumball Rally. I've been to the park 3 times since then and just didn't feel I really had good enough pics and stuff to post. So I figured now that I have all three of these and what not I'd make one big uber post (that will still probably be lacking )

    Wow, this wasn't suppose to be so self depricating

    Anyway, on to the pictures starting with the most recent trip.

    D23 started on Thursday as many know but Nela25, Carl (who we still haven't gotten on MC yet) and I headed up on Wednesday and went straight to the park.
    As I've said, there's not a ton of pictures. Our main goal was to ride Mansion a bunch since it'd be closing the next day (we managed 3 times)
    We also took Nela25 into Sleeping Beauty's Castle cause she hadn't been in the walkthru yet

    Here are my "artsy pics" from inside
    It was clear in this area for a long time and then suddenly when I decided to take the pic, everyone showed up. Natch


    The princess in her royal chamber and her Blue Dress (as it should be)


    The book fortold of True Love's Kiss. I think it'll all work out okay in the end but I could be wrong


    We also made it over to Big Thunder.
    See, there are no pics because I make faces like this


    Carl's ready for the wildest ride in the wilderness


    We also went on a crazy cartoon spin over in Toon Town


    And that was really it for Wednesday but not it for pictures.

    We didn't go to the park Thursday b/c it closed too early and we wanted to get the most out or D23 experience.
    Instead we headed to the park Friday night mostly to see Fantasmic.

    The park was crazy crowded because of normal Friday crowds and the influx of D23. We struggled to get food and they ran out of clam chowder, WTH?! Anyway, we skipped the first F! and instead went over to Tomorrowland and hit up Star Tours.
    When we got inside the Cm told us to line up as close to the wall as possible... we took him a little too literally.


    The other guests looked at us like we were crazy.

    After the ride, we listened to Magical and jumped on the train. We took it around to NOS and then headed to the Rivers of America to get our spot for Fantasmic.
    We were a bit far back and I was behind a guy with tall spikey hair. Luckily a lady in front of us left so we were able to have an unobstructed view

    The show went off without a hitch (apparently the early show had had an issue and stopped a few minutes in). The excitement was high as none of us had seen the new dragon or other enhancements to the show
    Mickey led everyone in the wave


    Got some serious hang time


    and then started dancing to All for One.... okay, maybe not


    Dat's a really big snake!


    The Money's practicing Tai Shing Pek Kwar (if you get that ref you get 100 KC brownie points )


    The pirates came in to break up the festivities


    Confused Wendy is confused!


    This one is blurry but I absolutely love how Wendy is so enamoured by Peter and he's all "I'll save you Wendy!". Adorable


    Fly Peter Fly!


    Time to dispose of that old cod fish properly!


    Princesses in blue


    It's like rhapsody in blue but more girly (also, Mike [the Beast] goes Rawr!!)


    The Queen doesn't approve of this frivolity!


    She's so mad, she and her GIANT crown can't even look


    Enter the eels! OMG they're cool, however I thought they might be a bit more animated. Like mocing faster and darting in and out


    This one looks crazy like he's gonna eat our faces!!


    And then it was time for the diva we'd all been waiting for. Mal threatened Mickey and looked rather manly


    The crowd started cheering and there she was!!


    She didn't breathe fire, but she did look amazingly impressive


    And sadly Mickey defeated her and that was that.


    Or so we thought (man, she takes forever to go back down into the pit. I mean, you can see her pretty much up until the Twain comes out. It's slightly bad show)
    Anyway, the Twain came out with its random slew of characters






    And that was it. It was really pretty Fantastic, but I love Fantasmic no matter what
    We went off to Fantasyland to try and stay away from the crowds. The line was short, so we jumped on the Carrousel. Nela31 finally got to ride Jingles and she was very happy


    Look, you can actually see me in a pic... I'm in the mirror... I need other people to take pics


    There's apparently video of us on the ride somewhere. gonna have to get that from Carl


    Over at Snow White, someone left the lights on in the pre-show so it made for some cool actually clear pics




    I'm still not sure what happened when we loaded on the ride, but the guys all got stuck in the front. It was hilarious and tight quarters


    Nela25 & I had a lot more room in the back


    It was getting closer to midnight so we wandered thru Fantasyland. This is one of my favorite views in the park but I need a better camera (or better photography skills) to get it the way I want it


    We also caught one of the Pixie Hollow shows...


    We wandered thru the Hollow, headed over and took a lame ride on Jungle (the other dudes in the boat were annoying as heck) and then called it a night.

      Yay! Nice report. Don't worry about your camera, I have a much worse one. It's alright during the day but it gets mad at me at night.

        I use a Sony DSC-H9. I really love it. It's not an SLR, but it has a 15xs zoom which really comes in handy with shows
        As for how I go to DL so much... um... I dunno. I kind of just make time to go. I have a few friends that I usually go with and we all have APs and are able to share hotels and gas and all that. I love Disneyland (obviously) and try to go as often as I can

          LOL. That would be cool if I had friends to go with! It would definitely bring down the cost. :P And nice camera. I have a Canon PowerShot SD780 IS.

                          Ummm... magic and jetpacks No really, I'm not sure. I wasn't really balanced on anything so it was probably just luck.

                          That's what my old phone did (and I had it play when I wore my KP cosplay to comic con) but my new phone sucks and won't do it. But yes, it does get you extra points

                                    Great TR as always! Look forward to them. And now that I know you've been holding out on us for 3, I expect the other 2 to get posted soon

                                    Thanks for the great photos!

                                    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                                        I'm too lazy to come up with a snappy comment .

                                        I will say you must have been stalking us Friday night because we watched the 2nd Fantasmic but we were stealthy and stood near the Twain Dock. Then afterwards we headed into a Fantasyland for a quick ride on Peter Pan.

                                        Next time you'll have to do better to find me.
