  • PHOTO REPORT 10/14/06 - Barbossa's back, abandoned kids, no fireworks, DCA changes...

    We arrived around seven in the evening. Pulled into the parking lot and asked for TWO Mickey Pumpkin air fresheners and the amazing CM gave us much, MUCH more.

    Want one?
    No?

    Are you sure?



    Entered Main Street and finally spotted the Mickey pumpkin in the window.



    Walked around a bit, got on Big Thunder, then headed back to Plaza for dinner. We found a great spot for the fireworks, sat and started eating when it was announced "due to high winds" the fireworks show was cancelled.



    The cute window display at the princess store...









    Time for Haunted Mansion Holiday!!!





    A 40 minute wait?


    Are you certain?


    Because I'm pretty sure I just walked on...



    ARRRRRR!! SOME BLOODY PIRATE STOLE THAT SWORD!!!
    (no really, anyone know what happened to it?)



    That crazy ol' Barbossa painting is back completely uncovered...and is still ugly.



    A bunch of new Tinkerbell ornaments at the XMas store on Main Street. There are also two new sets of Mickey/Disneyland XMas cards. Yay!!






    Flip it and the back says, "Naughty." It's exactly like the new pin that was released today.



    On our way out, we noticed these two children, sound asleep on a bench. My friends and I hung around talking, thinking the parents would return any minute. But we were there for a good fifteen minutes and there were still NO PARENTS IN SIGHT. I realized the children might have been there long before we arrived and so I went to City Hall and informed a CM who immediately went to get a security guard. Just as he got one, the two mothers approached the children with shopping bags in hand and exited the park with the kids as if there was nothing wrong with leaving them there on the bench while they shopped. Ugh.



    Time to say goodbye...



    Then more stuff happened...

    While we were exiting by the entrance gates, a 12 year-old boy shot by us in a stroller and crashed right into a trash can and BROKE it. His party started busting up laughing, but that soon stopped when two security guards approached them IMMEDIATELY. The kid looked scared as crap while the security guard spoke to him, then suddenly ran out of the gates and to Downtown Disney. The security let him go, but they spoke to his parents and it turned out it was his FATHER who thought it would be funny to push his son in the stroller straight into the trash can. :bash: On our way to the tram, we found the kid hiding in a corner by World of Disney. He was looking around frantically, which was amusing.

    I don't know whether Disney is charging them or anything, though I doubt it. But I couldn't believe that these people just didn't care. Respect the park, please! :rules: Idiots.


    As for DCA changes...I spoke to a CM friend of mine and was told that they are removing the "CALIFORNIA" letters because too many people have gotten hurt on it and that there are strong rumors that DCA will be changing into more of a "Pixar land" (like many of you have said.) Another CM interjected our convo and suggested they just tear the whole park down. )

    Hmmm. We shall have to wait and see, won't we?
    Ghost Mickey Popcorn Bucket Mission? 10/14/10 SUCCESS! FINALLY!!!! :yea:

          I'll take an air freshener!

          Ok, I'm pretty pissed about those abandoned kids! Those parents are complete IDIOTS!

          Thanks for the pictures.

            love the pictures. sad about the children...some people shouldn't have kids! to think they would be ok there alone is just sad! it's a wonder no one else came along to report it sooner.

            I will take a few air freshners if your willing to share
            Read books to your children, and experiece a life time of memories.

                Why do these children look like zombies? They look dead.

                    Great pics! Wow, some parents do such stupid things...

                    And that's sooo funny about the air fresheners. Maybe they have way too many left? I'll definately take one if you were serious about giving them away!

                    Thanks again for the report!

                          Don't they look like two scary zombie-like dolls made up to look like sleeping children? I don't think they are real. I really think they are a joke like that prisoner standing inside the big thunder track area. Maybe they got rid of the maniquins before security came.

                                        I really hope they have the air fresheners still at halloween when we are going. They must have tons, or they won't last.
