  • Trip Report The Forbidden Eye's Calm before the Storm Trip Report 1/16/2010

    Hi everyone, welcome to another TR! Note that I'm still in the process in uploading my pics so this will most likley be photo heavy. I just have one concern though.

    I'm going to cover my Oprea House visits and I took pics of the Lincoln AA. Now officialy, no one was suppose to take pics during the show. But the CM said no Flash Photography so I don't know what the official stance is. Anyway, I'll still post the pics of it and that'll be the only time I'll do it.

    Part one coming up soon.

    Note: My pics are currently unviewable at the moment due to bandwith being exceeded. It won't clear until the 28th I believe. My slideshow of my trip can be viewed at the third page. I apologize for the inconvience.

    Part One

    I arrived at Disneyland around 9AM. I went to Indy first as usual. The first time around, the line was only 10-15 minutes and it didn't warrant a single rider pass use. I then went to the Haunted Mansion. The line was 5 minutes. And no. No Hatbox Ghost.









    Then I went to Fantasyland and decided to go on Peter Pan. I clocked the line at 30 even though the posted time was 20.












    Opera House Part A coming up

        Opera house Part A

        So before I went to the Opra House, I went to have some lunch at Rancho Del Zocalo. Then i went to Big Thunder Mountain. The wait was 10 minutes.







        Then I decided to go to the Oprea House.















        Discovered this new picture in the pre-show lobby. It was put in Friday night.



        And it's Walt Disney as a Kid!







        More coming Up!

          Doesn't seem too busy for a Saturday (with a convention).

          Desires should not be hindered, no matter how difficult life might appear to be.
          If you fail, don't cease; keep going, keep trying.
          Giving up is never an option.

              More Opera House pics.

              So I mentioned that I took pics of the Lincoln AA during the show. Now, I still don't know what the idea is of each CM differenating from "No Photography" to "No Flash Photography" even though the official rule is no photos. Well, I got the latter and decided to try it only once and thats it. So enjoy these pics of the new A. Lincoln.

























              As I was leaving the Oprea House for now, I discovered that new potraits were put in the Post Show Area over the past several weeks.









              Then I discovered the first attraction poster for Lincoln. Not sure if this is the actual one or a replica.



              Next segment of this TR coming up!

                    Disney Character Craziness (Including PH first round and PFF)
                    So after that, I walked around for a bit.













                    I then headed to PH early than usual. I waited at least 10-15 minutes. Now the odd thing was, as Dan said after I met up with him after the first round, they were short on fairies so only, Silvermist, Terence and Tink were out for the day. No 4th fairy was present. When I went in, it was just Tink and Terence.







                    After that, I was about to go to PFF when i ran into Dan. I decided to join him at Coke Corner where we watched the Musical Chairs thing over there.



















                    Bert Stopped by.










                    After it was done, we headed to PFF. The line was really kind of short. I clocked it around 25-30 minutes. We were joined by a former Micechatter while we were waiting.

                    When we went in, we first saw Aurora.



                    Then Snow White. Dan was hoping we would see her on the account that he had his poison apple.



                    Then we saw Mulan.



                    We then parted ways because Dan had to work.

                    More coming up!

                          Pixie Hollow Round Two and Oprea House Round Two

                          After I splitted with Dan, I went to IJA for a quick spin.

                          Used the Single Rider line.





                          Heres the Hidden Mickey in the Office.







                          I then went to the Oprea House for some quick pics since I had time before PH closed for the day.

















                          One of the best shows DIsney has ever created (saying that since WOC will bump F! to #2 once it debuts.)















                          Left the Oprea House before the next show began. I then made my way to PH where I chatted with some Character Hosts that I know. Then it was time to go in.



                          Maybe it's time to keep an eye on the plants around this figure since it looks like that will engulf it soon.



                          Silvermist was out this time and signed my book that I brought with me again. Now that just leaves Iridessa and Rosetta.











                          Then I went to Tink. We did our pic behind the Fall Scepter and with the Book I had.



                          Heres the scan of Sil's Autograph. Located on the top left.



                          Then went to the Photo Store to pick up a pic from the first round.

                              Rumor? LOL

                              Last Minute DL Tasks.

                              So I was going to leave when the fireworks started so I decided to hit DCA to wrap up the night. Before that though, I went to IJA via DLRR via NOS.





                              At the photo shop. Pics below are at the DLRR MSUSA Station.











                              After that, then I headed to DCA. Oh, and I saw Tony Baxter and the Sherman Bros! No pics with them though. Thats alright. I didn't want to disturb them.

                              At DCA, I took a quick peak at BSC.





                              The POM



                              Went to Midway Mania! to see my sister at work then hit MFW.

















                              Taken mere secends before my gondola swung!





                              Then, I made my towards: THE TWLIGHT ZONE

                              Now, Picture if you will............ I was the last rider for the night.















                              This is me hanging on for dear life!



                              "The next time you check into a deserted hotel, make sure you know what vacancy you're filling. Or you might just end up going to.........The Twlight Zone"

                              THE END (For real, thats basically the end.)
