  • [Pictures] Disneyland & DCA Random Photos - 09/25/09

    Hello, I'm back to post more of my random photos! This time all from 09/25/09, which happens to be the first day of halloween stuff and the only day I DON'T celebrate my UNbirthday.


    The pumpkin fab 5 are back again



    And if you think it looks dead, it's because Disneyland hasn't opened yet.



    Right before rope drop @ 9am



    Early in the morning I was joined by Abominable Snowman, AShyKid (HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HIM TOO), and Captain Phoebus and the first thing we did was hit up Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. No time for pics of the fancy sign, we wanted to bust some intergalactic ghosts!







    My first ride was clearly a disappointing one. I liked the music but I didn't like the projections. It was too "Mummy" and it was so obvious where it all was going to be. It's definitely still a fun Space Mountain and I'm perfectly fine with this overlay. I just hope they develop something more for next year to make it even better.


    Since the fastpass machines were still down, I took a breather in the Starcade






    Okay Fastpass was working again. Grabbed one and then it was off to Haunted Mansion Holiday









    Is the light always wrapped up like this?



    "Happy Holidays, everyONE!"









    My poor attempt at getting a shot of Zero












    GAH! Blurry



    It's brighter in here so getting Ghosts isn't as hard



    blurry



    Oogie Boogie










    Then it was time to get another fast pass and to use the ones we've gotten earlier.










    And after that, Captain Phoebus had to run some errands so we kicked it on Main Street.






    And then Star Tours















    You'll do better next time?




    Obligatory Sleeping Beauty Castle shot










    The most sad balloon I've seen all day. I laughed at it for awhile.



    Took a spin on Pinocchio's Daring Journey






    Checked out the new permanent ODV shack






    and more to come...

        Yes



        ^It seems to me that the portraits are much more colorful than last year, a nice little update. (Notice Jack's portrait is backwards...)

        ^Thought it's a cool gingerbread piece, last year's was ALOT better though.

        ^Lighting has definitely brightened up or the scrims have been cleaned, allowing better vision into the other side.


        ^I think Oogie got a new skin, his beard has a lot more worms than before and he looks overall better.

          We wandered into Toon Town... I spied a sign that was new to me. Not sure when it was put in?





          Roger Rabbit, one of my favorites. (All you haters can suck it! )



          DIP room



          Cursed Roger Rabbit had to be blurry...



          Falling from the sky




          Crashin through the building



          And then it was time to park hop because we were hungry and nothing in Disneyland sounded appealing and neither did DCA food but we wanted to go there anyway so I can write this run on sentence.

          Back at the beginning...





          So where did we eat?

          ...you guessed it.



          We had to. I mean... it's new.



          I was surprised with how limited the selection was. You basically choose Beef, Chicken, or Tofu. And then you choose your saurce: Teriyaki, Spicy Korean, Thai Coconut Curry, two other sauces. I went with the beef in spicy korean sauce. It wasn't spicy.









          Getting serenaded by the female mariachi band is always a treat




          Oh and back to the meal... let's recap what I DIDN'T eat



          It's basically the same veggies they use in the mexican food. Not the veggies I expected in a beef bowl. I want carrots, broccoli and stuff like that. Not onions and peppers. Oh well. I'll just ask without if I come back. And yah, it wasn't bad... just not worth $10.



          After lunch, checked out the progress on World of Color and took a ride on Midway mania.




          More to come...

              In Haunted Mansion Holiday, Christmas has collided with Halloween. it's a mixture of both holidays

                    Awesome Pics, I think next years Halloween makeover should be the castle. They just need to install big black thorns to the outside of it.

                      Thanks guys!

                      With all the Halloween stuff going on, it was only proper to stop on by at Tower of Terror






                      We had a great CM that was totally awesome. A lot of fun.













                      After dropping by Tower, it was time to hit up the Animation Building. (yay atlantis)



                      Gotta love the Toy Story Zoetrope









                      And Beast's Library



                      I think they need to update the questions and results. I ended up with Mushu.



                      Then it was off to GRR





                      And then Soarin















                      Park hopped back to Disneyland and more to come!

                        Oh and while in the Animation building, Sorcerer Mickey, Woody, and Cinderella came into meet with fans. I'm guessing they came over from the Drawn to Animation show? Also Dopey was at the front and Sulley was walking around.







                        Over in Disneyland, it was getting pretty crowded



                        Mickey and Pluto were in their halloween best





                        Pumpkins graced just about... everything.









                        Jiminy Crickets! YUM! om nom nom nom



                        My first Disney Vinylmation



                        I love the Columbia (and the Mark Twain)






                        We had reservations at CAFE ORLEANS for dinner so it was high tide we head over. But first, here's a few more Mansion shots I found..







                        Gaah blurry
















                        The food at Cafe Orleans is good, probably one of my favorite of the in-park restaurants. At least the Monte Christo and Pommes Frites are good. Service at this location... a bit shoddy. Needs work.

                        No pomp, no circumstance. Light the candle and drop it in front of the guest, all while missing the other 3 birthdays that were celebrating as well (ashykid, doom BGI, and abominable snowman)



                        Still more to come!

                          I've gotta say, this is one of my favorite trip reports I've seen in a while.
                          And the fact that you have a picture of Vampire Teddy did not influence this decision.

                            Your "blurry" photos are better than my regular photos! Great job CB. Love the different view on things that I have thousands of times.

                            Must teach Pinocchio NOT to eat Jiminy.

                            It was great seeing you on your birthday, even if the the service was not as desirable as it should be.

                                I've been waiting for a picture of the Gingerbread "house" in HMH, and you were the first to show it. It looks great.

                                      You need to see "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Then it will make sense. :]
