    Re: AbominableSnowman's Uber Large 12-17-06 Trip Report

    I really like this fountain



    Does anybody know why the “H” and “O” light up together and not separately?



    Fun wreath



    Nobody gave Stitch any attention



    Another empty day in DCA



    Pep Rally? HOW ABOUT NOT! The lead singer had the most annoying voice!



    I better get over to DL so I’m not late for the 12 meet. On my way over, I noticed something that DL has issues with. Why is it that during the crowded summer days, only 3 or 4 entry gates are open but during the off-season, all are open?





    OK I have 20 min.



    Indeed…



    My mission is to get on this ride before the end of the day



    Havent been on the horses in a LONG time so why not?



    The CM on the right was new to DL and it was her first day



    They must of just woken up the horse because he kept yawning!


    The other CM had told us that our horse, Major, was quite mischievous and often stopped walking for no reason (which he did)


    Time for the meet! This is the backside of a few Mice Chatters



    Waiting for more people to show up



    Now I would tell you all of the people I met, but I think I remember about 2 of 20. Sorry you guys! I have no short-term memory, I think.


    And finally, Dusty and Fishy show up fashionably late. Fishy made his rounds and took 1000 pics as usual





    Whitewater Snacks was chosen for lunch so off we go!


    Dusty ran into somebody he knew



    OMG it’s Al!



    We waited for Fishy to go through Disneyana



    Well we cut through DCA to get to Whitewater.

    We have arrived!


    And look what we found outside!



    Fishy was getting his head massaged or scratched or something! Sorry but I had to post this

      Back into DCA



      I never noticed the detail in this wall before



      We chose ToT


      We filled an elevator with 18 people. We decided on a scared pose for our picture. We were so excited to see our picture but when we had arrived at the viewing area, out photo had dropped into another dimension! We were curious as to why our picture was deleted because we were all acting “appropriately” so that wasn’t why it was dropped. We asked the CM running the photo area. She had to call out her manager because apparently our question was too hard. Apparently Princess Buttercup holding onto Fishbulb’s scarf was a safety hazard and that was why it was dropped. They wouldn’t even let us see it!

      We all felt defeated.


      We timed it perfectly. We got off ToT just as the Aladdin show got out just so we could deal with crowds



      We then did one for the kids and kids at heart and went on Monsters Inc. (The most creative ride is Disney history!)



      I think they have used this whole queue once



      Party of 17 please! We almost all fit into one car


      “Smoochey pooh!” “O googly bear!”



      “We gotta get you out of here”



      “Why do I ever work on the weekends? Nothing ever happens!”



      “Come on Sully. We gotta go!”



      Roz called me a hunk and said she would be in my closet that night. She never showed up



      Well Dusty and Fishy had to split. What was left of the group head back to DL to go on the Matterhorn.


      Matterhorn:






      Some of the changes are very obvious


      I couldn’t put my finger on it but something looks different here. Didn’t this area used to be enclosed?



      This staircase looks new as well



      New speakers replaced the old ones. I like the sound of the Safety spiel on the old speakers though. Don’t ask me why



      The new paint is quite obvious and looks great!





      A new control panel was installed in place of the simple single button on the mountain
      (Sorry for the fuzziness but we were moving)



      And the wall still talks to you



      And now pics from the inside!

      Crystals!



      Harold! (My new avatar!)



      Tree



      Harold again!



      Uh oh!



      Overall the, the changes were great. The track is way smoother. The change of track is comparable to going from a crappy, gravel infested highway to a new highway with that new rubberized asphalt. All the jerks and turns of the ride are there but with a smoother ride. So all of you Matterhorn fans, do not fear!

        Now it was time for the kiddie rides. Why? The parade was going on of course!
        Casey Jr.? OK



        Claribella and her awesome son



        Carousel time!




        She is gonna fall off! You better hold on!



        They are strong, but not strong enough



        On our way to Jungle Cruise


        Last ride for me





        Cooky Princess Buttercup and her hubby





        Princess Buttercup was brave enough to pet the piranhas. She came to the conclusion that all water on the Disney property smells like DCA bathroom water (?)



        The rest of the group went on Pirates while Hollywood1939, Claribella and her son and I went to find food. I chose popcorn and they chose the Stage Door café. I saw a familiar face while getting my popcorn…



        It was time for me to go.



        I wish I could have stayed longer. Apparently Dusty and Fishy came back with a friend a couple hours later. Well fun was had by all at another great Mice Chat meet. I am done with DL til the New Year. I hope everyone has a safe and happy Holiday.

        (And no, I am not about to copy a certain somebody’s signature ending)

        THE END

                    Good morning, son
                    In twenty years from now
                    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                    And I can tell you 'bout today
                    And how I picked you up and everything changed
                    It was pain
                    Sunny days and rain
                    I knew you'd feel the same things...

                          Im bringing this thread back to the top so that the people in the Matterhorn thread dont have to look for it. So ya the changes to the Matterhorn are pretty apparent to me.

                              And I've had that skipper before. :/
