    Well, the D23 Expo is over, the banners are down across town (now wishing you a Happy New Year in September) and time to get ready for Halloween. Lets get started.

    Motel 6 on Disney Way is now "European-chic"

    Decided to start with this because it is a "shocker". Check out this story and video from the Orange County Register.
  2. The weary traveller arrives

    Well, I'm in Anaheim. I arrived at about 2pm, but as expected my hotel room wasn't yet ready. So I half checked in and went for a walk, had a burger at Garden Walk, and bought a Deluxe AP. Then in what must have been the shortest visit to Disneyland; I went to the AP Center and got my photo AP and left.

    In around 12 hours I will be somewhere between here and the USA, in the perspective time machine.

    I'll leave Adelaide at 9:30am on the 15th September.

    While the Sun makes his trip around two thirds of the Planet, bringing Australia's yesterday to the USA's tomorrow, I'll be sitting in an aluminium tube trying to cross the other third in the opposite direction in only 15 minutes.

    I'll arrive in LAX at 9:45 on the 15th of September.

    Neat trick, wait ...

Fans were treated to an impressive line-up of theme park panel discussions, one-on-one interaction with Imagineers, and an up close and personal look at the massive new Cars Land coming to Disney's California Adventure and the three new lands coming to Hong Kong Disneyland. But don't forget the big news -- after years of rumors, Star Tours II finally got the official announcement.

    Please note, ...

    So...I wasn't at D23 this weekend, :( But on the bright side, Friday was the first opportunity that I've had in three months to take the camera and head off to the DLR as the kids are now back in school. :thumbup:

    So, I thought I would post these to my blog though as I still have a live photo thread that is nearly finished in the Disneyland Forum. And even though I really should finish that one up first, I just wanted to post a few shots from last Friday as it's been eons ...
