Disneyland Resort, 11/17-11/19 Trip Report (long, but with photos) - Days 1 and 2
Saturday, Nov 17th - Monday, Nov 19th, 2012
You're new here, aren't you?
So close, we can see it
Don't worry, the hordes are on their way
Cars Land, where cars are people and rocks are cars
Not exactly fast enough to be blurry
An old standby, and quiet enough to go standby
Someone set the decorations to 11
Someone looks excited to see World of Color
Less a carousel of color and more a rainbow
Here, in Mickey's imagination. Oops, wrong show
Some lines are just too good to be stuck in a queue
Respectable, if not respected
Pretty sure Disney built the Grand Canyon
He was on his own for a bit longer as Megan and I went to redeem our Racers Fastpasses, doing so in the actual redemption window, for a change. Once again the express access was more than worth the effort needed to secure it, and we were into the valley and up to the front of the line with a rather pleasant stroll. Really, we had to wait a bit once we merged with everyone else, but that time was spent taking in the splendidly adorned environment. They really did quite a terrific job with the rockwork, and the placement of the station in a faux cavern is completely convincing.
The blue car took a dive
Audience big or small, these guys are doing a show
Might as well just say, "Go back to the hotel"
Only took until 12:30am to get some damn peace and quiet
great trip report! loving the details. makes me feel like i'm right there with you experiencing the days!
i noticed no mention of toontown on your visit... intentional? or maybe it's in day three... off to read that now!
What a nice thing to say, that's exactly what I hope for. It definitely brings me right back to the park, and I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed it.
As for Toontown, we considered it on our last day, but no one felt like making the schlep up there. It's either one trip and enduring standby, or two trips to get then use a Fastpass. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy Roger Rabbit, but just wasn't compelled to hit it this time around. I'm sure we'll get to it next time.
Besides, without kids in tow, it seemed smart to stay clear of the area considering the crowds. It can get crazy on even quiet days. :\
