  • Fishbulb's FishMunkee626Boy meet of DOOM 09.23.07 Trip Report

    After a stormy Saturday the clouds parted and gave way to a sunny Sunday unaware of the turmoil to unfold. For Sunday was the FishMunkee626Boy meet of DOOM meet celebrating the birthdays of Fishbulb, PirateMunkee, Princess626, Coheteboy, and Doom BGI.

    Dusty and I went traditional for such an occasion and parked in the Mickey and friends structure. We were running late for the noon meet as usual and the crowds at the trams did not help to get us there any sooner.




    While waiting for the next tram I spotted a few familiar faces





    We got off the tram and were joined by TraderChris


    HALLOWEENTIME IS HERE!

    We got into the park and Main Street USA was alive with Autumnal engergy. Everywhere you looked there were decorations and activity.





    We got to the meet about ten after 12 and were greeted with festive smiles.




    Mwahahaha



    Whutcoo talkin' bout Goofy?


    Aashee and his awesome son gave me a gift bag


    Lil' Clink one, Belle, Lil Clink 2 and Olympicnut sat off to the side


    Frogberto and Tadpole were there


    Then my nephew Robert, my niece MonkeyC, and Susan arrived
    (Robert has Down syndrome but doesn't seem to let it get in his way)


    I love my nieces and nephews.


    Sadako, Fishbulb and Robert

    Then Crazylegs showed up as the group was getting hungry. She led us to Rancho Del Zocalo for lunch.




    MMMMMMMMexican food. YUM



    Seefood


    These cute little halloween cups were in use, but they had the Disney Parks logo on them.




    Table #2


    HaleyB in line


    We filled two BIG tables


    Lil' Aashee was not pleased


    Then TraderChris did the sweetest thing. He ran over and bought all the birthday people a churro.


    Coheteboy chomps his churro


    the cutest couple on Micechat


    A churro, a Coke and a smile


    Snow White Raven and her aunt got me a PRINCESS card


    Rixter and MickeyMaxx led the group in singing
    Happy Birthday to us


    After lunch it was time for Pirates. I know we do it all the time but you can't ride anything CRAZY right after you eat.




    MonkeyC and Dusty


    Dusty talks with MCow1 and Mary Read While Robert plays
    with bubbles in the foreground


    BFF's NeverNeverland and Skywaygrl









    Then we came up the lift hill and around the corner to the load unload area and saw everyone in the queue being evacuated.



    We barely escaped getting trapped in a 101'nd Pirates.



    Outside the group gathered to wait for the other half that was a ways back in the line from us. They came out and we gathered all the Birthday people present for a B-day Superstar pic.



    Fishbulb and Julie, PirateMunkee, Princess626, Coheteboy and Doom BGI


    Aashee being a silly dad


    Pezz gets a call from the President. "It's NU-CLEE-ER! NU-CLEE-ER!"


    Crazylegs wonders what's going on while MonorailMan stuffs his mouth

    Rixter, Mickeymaxx, Dusty and I had to split off from the group. We said goodbye to my family and all the MC pals and headed overto DCA for another special Birthday celebration...



    The horror, the horror, of adventureland traffic


    Punkin festival on Main Street


    So Long Dinsyeland





    Hello DCA

    We had not been in DCA since it had the new decorations installed so we took a look.


    Oooooh Candy Corn!


    Reminded me of old school Knott's somehow.


    Pretty much the idea of Cany corn acres is that anything considered a fruit is now candy corn and on this simplistic premise a whole theme was constructed. It's cute enough but we felt that it was lacking. We were left asking, "That's it?"


    Coconut Candy corn


    Grape candy corn


    Corn candy corn


    Are those watermelon?


    every so often Heimlich would pop out of the large candy corn centerpiece and talk to the passers by in a pre recorded spiel.






    Carrot candy corn


    Cactus candy corn

    we wandered over to Pacific wharf to see the decorations there.



    These are the decorations. That's it.


    We finally made ot over to the Cove bar and Pixie Chick was there, ready and waiting , to celebrate her birthday.




    The kids LOVE the booze


    PixieChick holds up the present that Dusty and I gave her


    Mmmmmmmm




    Grumpy4


    my drink came


    I got this card from my sister for my birthday and it cracked me up


    SirClinksalot, Lil Clink 1 and Rixter went off to ride Screamin'


    My Family finished at Disneyland and wanted to go ride soarin with me


    MissChristine and Robert


    More of the group stopped by


    Sadako and FlyboyHi


    I Heart Borneo


    A brief congress of the cons


    On our way to Soarin we ran into AliasD


    We decided to take the nature trail through Grizzly peak to get to Soarin'





    It was kind of a bummer. We got to Soarin and they were only operating ONE theater. This made the wait excruciating. After about 10 minutes outside in the Fast Pass line we decided to opt out. RObert was ticked but we made promises that we would do Tower so he was okay.

    Crossing Candy Corn Acres I ran into Harrison Ford who was with his young son and a plaid. I asked if I could get a pic but he said he would rather not with the kid around. I realized that was pretty smart so I said thanks and left. As I was leaving I saw Colista Flockhart of Ally McBeal fame approaching them. BLECHHH. I couldn't get away fast enough.

    Wandering into The Hollywood pictures Backlot the group went over to ride Monsters inc and then we took a stroll through the animation building.




    Susan, Robert and MonkeyC had never been in here. So I took them straight to Ursula's Grotto.





    MonkeyC was more like Ariel




    Robert was...


    More like...


    Shan Yu, the bad guy from Mulan


    In Ursula's Grotto we sang Hi ho and we all loved it


    Robert decided to throw a hippo into the air


    It was now time for Tower of Terror.




    Robert and Dusty got in the scary mood


    The rest of the old group joined us for one last ride






    Crazylegs and Robert sittin in a tree...




    Say Cheese!



    We were on our way out of HPB when we realized our escape was blocked by the awful Block Party Bash





    We narrowly escaped and made it to Down Town Disney where we said goodbye to my sister, niece and nephew


    MonkeyC, Susan and Dusty


    Crazylegs, Monorail Man and Robert


    Dusty, Crazylegs, Monorail Man and I decided to go have dinner at story tellers.


    and that was it.



    It was a mad cap crazy weekend filled with thrills chills and spills. We celebrated a record 7 birthdays at the Sunday meet and had a wonderful time. I want to hank all my firends for the lovely cards I received and for all the love you guys dish out. It made my little birthdya weekend truly special as I am sure it did for PirateMunkee, Princess626, Coheteboy, Doom BGI, Julie, and PixieChick. Thanks so much.

    See you at the hub!



    THE END!!!

    Awesome report, and I'm glad that me and the tadpole could make it this time! (Even though my son has a "what-you-talkin'-about-Fishy" look on his face). So many birthdays in such a short period of time... our parents were sure busy in January!

    (It was super nice to meet Ashee, as I always enjoy his super witty and funny comments on the boards)...

              Fantastic trip report and pics as usual. Again, a belated happy birthday to all concerned and I'm glad you all had such a wonderful day.

              Nice to see a picture of Hayley B as well! Hope she's had a great trip.
              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.

                          Fantastic TR Fishy! I liked the break down of the candy corn acres - I've seen a bunch of pictures with the bite. Now I know it's cause of Heimlich (I guess I shoulda known!).
                          "But every night, when it gets dark
                          and the stars come out,
                          I'll look up on her behalf.
                          I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

                              Once again your camera is the best, because I look so skinny in that pic!

                              Happy birthday to all!
                              Good morning, son

                              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...

                                    Sunday meets are always fun, but all the birthdays made the fun all the more special. We had such a great time with lots of folks we don't get to see often, and loved meeting the first timers! We had planned on staying a couple of hours, and ended up staying until well after dark.

                                    Fishy, it was a real treat seeing your sister and her beautiful family. And, as always, your photos help us all relive the fun!

                                    Thanks!

                                        Awesome TR as usual Mr. Bulb!!! It was great seeing you and celebrating your birthday.

                                        And it was great to finally put a face to Coheteboy. We're going to have a BLAST in Florida. Sorry I didn't come over earlier and say hi.

                                        Looks like we missed a fun lunch, but we had imitation Mexican food the day before.
