  • Morrigoon's "Two, Two, Two TR's In One!" Report (10-7 thru 10-14)

    Okay kiddos, here's my long-overdue-it's-about-dang-time trip report! I'm covering from Gay Days Sunday through today, so bear with me here... this is a *lot* of photos!

    I arrived at the parking structure, and discovered the cute Halloween themed signs they had for the levels:



    And since the line was totally backed up on my level, I used "the stair trick" to get down to a less-used escalator (what can I say, I have no patience!)





    I had to wait for a tram, leaving me too much time to think about things. Things like.... I'm sorry, HOW MANY legs does a spider have again?



    I guess that was the spider equivalent of cartoon fingers?

    At the meet, Dusty addresses the assembled crowd to explain a few things about the wonderful FREE quest that people were participating in



    And then to beckon us all over to the castle for a group photo





    To be continued....

    (and continued...)

    (and continued...)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    After the meet, I headed over to DCA with Chernabog, Alphabassetgirl, and Cherny's friend to catch some Taste Pilot's goodness and see the legendary Toy Story Zoetrope.

    Onward!



    Wait! It's *gasp!* (in your best Heimlich voice) CANDY CORN!!!!!







    Taste Pilot's lovin' (or at least an onion shaped like a heart)





    Eat your heart out! (I did)



    TBC...

      Nice shots and what fun did we have on that day. Thanks.

        And here it is... the Toy Story Zoetrope!







        You can start to get an idea of how motion is achieved through incremental changes from model to model:







        Really, pictures don't do it justice, this is several feet across... even standing still, it's impressive.



        After that, we took a ride on ToT



        And then messed around a bit in the store at the exit (relax, those are just Jack pillow/plushies



        Chernabog sports the latest in West Hollywood thug wear and says, "Whassup ma homo?" (The fur gloves are an absolute MUST for Abbey drive-bys this time of year)



        Ugly picture, cute tiara (but I'll stick with the big ones from now on, I think)



        Eeek!



        I made a new friend



        Then Chernabog made a new friend



        Oh wait... NOW it makes more sense, LOL



        We made another visit to the zoetrope and I got some Sleeping Beauty pics in the lobby









        We don't see enough of these guys... I'd love to see a troupe of them dancing in the parades, wouldn't you?



        Since I'm an old person (okay 30, but I feel older sometimes!) I was worn out by 5, so I dropped Cherny off at his hotel, which, as luck would have it, was immediately adjacent to the Fujishige strawberry farm (think future 3rd gate)



        Anybody else notice Pixar getting equal billing on the buses?



        END (of that day)

        More to come!

              So then I came to the park Friday night. Got a couple great pics off the parking structure roof





              Hooked up with a couple nice MCers who were in the park with friends





              And guess what we did (after the train ride above)? Small World!

              After all, soon it goes down for Holiday, and then we may not see "normal" IASW until 2009!



              Can you spot what's missing in this picture?





              Cowabunga, little dude! (oops, wrong park!)





              Say bye bye postcards!



              Clearly, some folks are disturbed at the prospect of losing the postcards. Well... or they're just disturbed



              Even the CM's say, "Bye bye postcards!"

              And the postcards say "Bye bye" back

















              No, thank YOU

                No night at DL would truly be complete without a ride on Space, now would it?







                And hugs... lots of hugs



                Look who we found at the Space Mtn exit! It's Trekkie Dad and his lovely bride.

                  The heck, you say. No way those are Jack pillow/plushies. Cherny has forsaken Lindsay for this year's celeb he will become on the 31st, Jessica Rabbit.

                  Please, may we have some more? :beg:

                    You're not going to believe this, but I ended up going to DL on Saturday too! I know that photographer seemed a bit familiar *hyuck!*



                    But here was something UNfamiliar... anybody else notice the new map stand by the tunnel? I actually think this is a great idea - guests needing a foreign language map will be less intimidated by being able to walk up to a stand and grab a map rather than having to figure out that they could go to City Hall and then having to ask for one.



                    After the parade, they briefly opened up the back passageway behind the Main Street stores. It was suggested they probably do this because the parade has show stops along the way, which would block guests from exiting. Considering how soon the passage closed, I'm guessing that's it





                    END (of Saturday)

                      Good morning (or time-before-the-noon-meet), Micechatters! Your host today is SpiderDuck, er.... Daisy



                      And I come bearing treats!



                      Back again for more, eh?



                      Miss Adelaide makes an appearance



                      And the cutest widdle MCer who ever lived came as well!





                      Hey [email protected] I saw you at DL

                        LUNCHTIME!!!

                        Italian was on the menu



                        Yeah, that's exactly what I think when heading to an Italian restaurant... I'm gonna feed my kid Cuban food!



                        But with lunch out of the way, it was time for the Single Riders Meet (and more CANDY!)





                        Apparently such a crowd at the wishing well attracts attention. We have a close encounter of the Disney kind



                        And I get a hug from Dan!



                        Yo, Charles!





                        And being as we're such a friendly bunch of people, our new friend from DL Security hung out and chatted a bit (or was it a lineup? We crazy internet people can be one scary bunch, can't you tell?)







                        Not to worry ma'am, I've got the Single Riders under control...





                        I don't know, between you and me, I think Charles is plotting something... look at that twinkle in his eye, and the mischievous look on his face!

                            It's a Small World... even if we're not a small group



                            Rocking the tiara look







                            In case you were wondering, Jingles is the "lead" horse on the King Arthur Carousel



                            Never noticed this before... is it a Florida import? (I mean, clocks... Sleeping Beauty?) Well, they're pretty anyway.



                            You know, we just can't get enough of the Toy Story Zoetrope, back to DCA we go!



                            The boys take a moment of silence to remember "The Old Disneyland", followed by the ceremonial spitting on Paul Pressler's stone



                            Did I mention CANDY CORN!!!! (It's everywhere. Which is cute... for about 5 minutes. But hey, theming in DCA!)









                            Heimlich make an appearance during the (awful awful) show in front of the hub cap





                            Yes, kids, they even have candy corn corn...

                              Cutest. Kiddo. EVER. Matt Hammand and QuiltLover are lucky to have him!



                              After the zoetrope, we watched the animation in the lobby for a bit while waiting for our chance to draw Tigger





                              So what do you think happened next? If you guessed "We drew Tigger", you'd be correct!

                                And then it was time for an early dinner at Plaza Inn. Our table had a great view of a great window (is it just me, or are the simpler windows the best ones?)







                                Yo.



                                Bert and Mary were very gracious. You could tell they were in a hurry, yet they still went out of their way to create some magical moments before they disappeared





                                Some of the group had fastpasses for HM. The standby line was so long that we opted to hang out rather than get in line. But hey, hanging out is what we do best!

                                Actually, it's what he does best



                                But we're pretty skilled at it too, in our way.















                                Woo... spooooky!



                                Fantasmic crew continues to ready the waterfront for the show





                                What was I saying? Oh yeah, "Woooooo.... spoooooky!"







                                I really get amused by the silliest things... like the tallest escalator telling you to take the stairs





                                (To be fair, the other side was operational and moving upward. But it was still funny!)

                                THE END

                                No, really.

                                I mean it this time.

                                That's it.

                                      Nice pictures. I was cracking up because in EVERY shot that I was in you got my back! )

                                      Well I guess I won't be as famous as some of you other MC'ers then!
