  • Trip Report Pics from 11/08: Terence, Slim, and Tiana's Showboat Jubilee

    As of late I've pretty much gotten my fill of attractions, so I decided beforehand that Sunday would be all about entertainment. And it was.

    I woke up at 7:00 to help my step dad wire our house for HQ Cable, which was not fun for either of us, but we finished, and left at 1:10. We finally got to Anaheim at about 2:30, which is about a half hour longer than normal because of traffic.

    I had about an hour to do whatever before seeing Celebrate! A Street Party, so I took some random shots. I happened to wander into NOS in time for Tiana's Showboat Jubillee. I wasn't in a great place for photos though.













    Then it was time to see Celebrate! A Street Party. I managed to meet up with Dreamer20k too, and incidentally, Sunday was the last day we were able to see Celebrate this year.

    After that I said my goodbyes and headed over to a place I had only been to after hours with friends: Pixie Holllow. I remember reading a Dateline Disneyland a couple weeks back introducing Terence. I thought he looked awesome and I seriously had to get a photo with this guy.

    Keep in mind though, up until Sunday I had been kinda shy of most non-parade characters since I was a little kid. And I hadn't gotten a picture with one in 12 years. In fact, even as a little kid, I would avoid them altogether.

    So I waited in line for about 30 minutes. Not too bad, but still kinda long.
    I finally met Terence and Tinkerbell and they were so nice! It was cool since they had much more to say than I did. They liked my Space Mountain shirt. Tinkerbell said that she heard about it, and asked me if it was scary. I said yes, and then Terence noted he can't fly in space because there's no air. ) So anyways, we talked for a little bit more and I got a picture. Ah... good times. Definitely seeing them again sometime soon.



    So after that, feeling elated, I started wandering around tomorrowland aimlessly when I mentally noted it was 5:03, which meant I still had time to see Pixar Play Parade. I got there during the Up Pre-Parade and managed to get a very good spot in Sunshine Plaza.

    Every now and again, I manage to get the attention of Slim, who is my favorite character in the show, and he gives me a high five. I am happy to say that evening was no exception!

    I needed to say hi and give the new DCA map to a friend working in Toontown, but I wasn't quite sure where he was, so I looked around. I checked in Mickey's House, and even though he wasn't there, I still didn't leave empty-handed:



    I eventually found out he was working at Gadget's Go Coaster, so I went over there and chatted for a little bit. Then I rode, making it the only attraction I did ride that day.

    After saying goodbye, I met up with my parents for the 6:30 showing of Celebrate! A Street Party, which they had never seen! My stepdad liked it, and my Mom, who participated fully, loved it.

    It was about time to wrap things up, so I grabbed a rather delicious burger at Taste Pilots while they rode Soarin' Over California.

    When we got home, I was exhausted. But it was all because of a very magical evening.

      Great job Alex! You got some awesome shots in there along with the character photos. I'm still a little too shy to visit some of the characters like you were.......but I'm thinkin' I need to change that!

          Great TR Alex! I'm super bummed that I wasn't there to celebrate with your parents since I love them to DEATH and would've loved to see your mom go out and dance.

          Oh, and I love the photo of the Submarine Lagoon. Very nice!

                  Kudos to you for an awesome trip report!

                  I'm a little shy when it comes to meeting characters too, but I'm hoping to change that soon.
