  • Fishbulb's 03/12/06 Trip Report

    Hey MC'ers! I went to the park today and, though it was a cold, ominous day, it did nothing to diminsh the crowds.

    The day started at the trams, as usual but something was very different. Garrish signs advertising DCA were there ready to sway any intention of entering Disneyland with promises of Monsters and Turtles.







    A sign post cuts into the foliage



    The Trams and security were running effeciently at noon and we hit a snag at the front gates where there were looooooooong lines and not enough open gates to get us through in a reasonable amount of time.




    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    We got inside and Main Street was humming with activity




    Ahhhh The meet. A small one, but a meet none-the-less. We missed you OSG, RadioBarry, and A_Hyperbole!



    Fishbulb and The lil' bit of Sun





    After lunch we all headed over to the recently re-opened Haunted Mansion for a look see and saw afew things along the way...



    The Tiki Room drawing crowds in with it's invitation
    of warm indoor entertainment.




    The signs above the Closed entrance to Pirates reads
    "Dead men tell NEW tales". Let's hope it's one we all want to hear.


    The Haunted Mansion was PACKED but the line moved swiftly. We were all very eager to see if the ride had returned from it's 2 month closure fresh and sparkling.











    Unfortunately I have to say that I was surprisingly dissapointed in the condition of this attraction after such a long closure. Perhaps the changes or repairs were not evident to the guest, but much was still in dissrepair. There were several sound problems, often times it would skip. I saw wear and tear all around the wall paper and wood paneling in the portrait room. The seance room is altered and the lighting is more fine tuned aside from the huge shadow madame leota casts on the wall behind her. The attic scene is cleaned up some and the lighting was, again, fine tuned. The graveyard scene still showed great signs of wear with several holes in the skrims very visible . A dissapointing ride.

    After that we ran over to Big thunder...









    Fun Stuff! Lastly we all opted for a ride on Mr. Toad.







    "To DCA with you ALL!!!!!!"




    We exited the ride and saw a familliar face cheering a young girl on at the Sword in the Stone.

    ...And that was it.


    We did head over to DCA, as the Devil Judge told us to do, but it was too crowded and we all went our separate ways.




    The end.

          Love your pic Fishbulb!! It was so much fun hanging out with you today.

          To add to Fishbulb's photo shoot. While at DCA, I took some shots of the newly painted San Francisco area.




          And we saw Sully walking around scaring people.


          And as much as HM needed some work, so did the outside of IASW

          Closer shot

              Here's a prettier pic of IASW


              And a shot of the castle later in the day. The sun was going down and was shining on the gold trim. It looked nice.

                  Great pics and narration as usual! FYI - Richard Kind recently performed a hoo-larious best picture nominee song to the tune of "The Beverly Hillbillies" theme for "Good Night, And Good Luck" at the Independent Spirit Awards. He brought down the house (tent) with laughter, apparently he and Clooney have been friends for over 20 years.

                            Did anyone see the Duggar family there yesterday? We saw them all getting on Dumbo. In case you don't know they are a family that lives in Arkansas and has 16 children. They all dress alike and live a pretty happy life as I saw in their documentary. I guess they are filming a new one because they had a film crew taping everything.

                              GREAT pics. The castle with the clouds and the IASW pics are particularly spectacular. Sorry I couldn't make it Sunday (family obligations) but it was good to see lots of you on Saturday!!!
