  • The Official Here Comes Yet Another Radiobarry picture-infested DL Trip Report Thread

    As many of you may know, I returned to Disneyland last Sunday after an absence of several months, to be part of a very special day ...to meet the people behind the characters containing names including words and numbers like penguin, warrior, 1939, 74, gang, clari - well, the list goes on.

    The day came. I was also reunited with old MC friends I hadn't seen in a while. We laughed. We sang. We drank. We ate. We cried. We passed cameras around. A lot. Some of us rode rides. Others of us watched football. Some drank some more. Still others actually went into DCA.

    And you have seen the trip reports come, and go. And still you wonder - where is the essence, the brilliance, the SHEER GENIUS...you get the idea.

    Friends, a trip report like this one is like a fine wine. Or an expertly prepared steak. Some things are just worth the wait.

    This trip report probably won't be one of those type things.
    But it is coming...this weekend...and you won't want to be the one person next Monday who hasn't seen what surely the rest of folks will be talking about.

    Watch this space. You will not regret it (well, if you do, let me know and I'll see if we can work something out ) -

                      It was one week ago this very morning, Sunday December 10th. I was bound for the big bopping December to Remember or somesuch meet, at one of my very favorite places.

                      It had rained hard the night before, but the sky was clear (if dark) when I left my coastal area estate in Northwest Ventura County at about 5:30 AM.

                      A stop to gas up in Oxnard (more on that later) ... followed up by my customary "halfway" stop to gas myself up again at the Starbucks in Westlake...and cruisin along at freeway speeds through LA into Anaheim (Sunday morning, remember) I pulled up to the toll booth just after 8AM - flashed the nice lady my AP with parking...(I am really cool now)...got to park outside in Pinocchio (as you may know, I detest the parking structure).

                      And stepping out of the car, I give the camera its first workout as we see more evidence that it really had rained.



                      In case you didn't know from the dozens of other, less thorough reports, once you leave your car you generally walk to a place where you line up to sit in a big white thing with a yellow roof that looks kinda weird.



                      There's a wait for the big white thing, so I'm looking for stuff to take pictures of...



                      So I get on the big white thing. As instructed I sit well back in my seat and do very little so as not to break any rules. The thing takes me to the main gate area where I flash my annual pass to another nice person who decides that I am indeed cool enough to enter. This person apparently never met a supervisor I once worked under in New Orleans Square.

                      Anyway, I get into the park...and I couldn't shake the feeling that a giant mouse made out of flowers was sticking its tongue out at me.



                      I decided that I would take fate intio my own hands and charge boldly past into the lands of yesterday, tomorrow, fantasy, and ridiculous food prices.



                      If you can indeed tell time without the benefit of a digital clock, you can see that it was 8:30 in the morning. The Big Bad Hazagaza meet wasn't for 90 minutes yet. A former Disneyland CM, and current MiceChatter, by himself because his wife had to work - with a camera, fresh batteries, and an almost empty memory card. Be afraid. Be very afraid.














                      With a song in my heart, and time on my hands - even though I wasn't wearing a watch - I decided to take a ride on the train.
                      God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                        Oh goody!! I am on my way to breakfast here in cold Chicagoland. I am expecting some more of this "so far, so good" trip report, when I return.

                          So I ride the train past the wilds of Adventureland and "Critter" Country, and go boldly into an area that, according to many posts I read here and my own recent memory, has been scarcely touched by human visitation. And no, it's not DCA



                          There's that mouse again. At least he doesn't appear to be sticking out his tongue at these brave souls.

                          Now here's the place where I should have gassed up, since I noticed that gas prices per gallon were at least 30 cents cheaper in Orange County than where I live.



                          No waiting at the pumps, either.



                          And since apparently many of you haven't been out that way any time soon or don't plan on returning until sometime after Roger Rabbit spins off in another direction...













                          Alas, it was now time to leave Toontown...and as we all know, once you cross its borders you may ne'er return again...oh wait, that's Toyland. Well y'know, it's the holidays - I saw the marching toy soldiers...Walt Disney's "Babes In Toyland" is a favorite movie of mine around the holidays...

                          Leaving Toontown, I came upon this always beautiful sight.



                          As of last Sunday, the bobsleds were not running as the refurbishment was still coming to an end.

                          The sign outside the park said that the attraction was closed. Another at the entrance to the ride said the same thing. Yet, at another point in front of the landmark...



                          Go ahead. Stand there. See where you are in an hour and a half!!)

                          More to come later.

                          Your intrepid if this time slow reporter -

                            You have not dissapointed, so far. You have captured some real "gems" with that camera of yours, Barry.
