I am a relatively new member, been around a bit (well since 2006 ), but here is my first real trip report. A little bit behind the time as we visited DLP on July 23, but we recently just got home from our trip.
First I like to say that DLP is a very nice park and defiantly worth a visit, we only had the 1 day to spend there, and it really was not long enough. We kinda knew this, but that is the way things worked out with our trip – at least we did get in one day.
The park was not all ‘that’ busy, but it was raining on and off the whole day, which probably contributed to the small crowds. We also tried following the one day trip planner that several have posted here, but that went out to lunch mostly due to some of the rides temporary being out of order – plus the issue of being too easily distracted by the park itself.
The only real disappointment was the merchandizing: the selection didn’t seem to include a whole lot of ride specific stuff, and the Emporium didn’t seem to carry ‘everything’ such as the one in CA does. We thought we would visit the Emporium as a one stop shopping, but they didn’t carry many items that we had seen around the park that caught our eye, so then it was back going around to the smaller shops to pick up these items. A minor inconvenience, but nothing that can’t be easily overlooked.
Anyways, on with the pictures…
