    45 minute wait for Phantom Manor!?!? Wow, the only time I see a 45 minute wait for Haunted Mansion at Disneyland CA, it's for the Holiday version. Phantom Manor must be an awesome ride!!!

    Question: How big is the dragon under the castle? It looks small there, but in other pics I've seen, it looks HUUUUGE!! My friend says you feel very small, and that it's about 75 feet long. True?
    I am a rabid Disney fan. Possible future Imagineer (already designing rides for it)... I've only been to Disneyland. I'm hoping to go to Disney World this summer for the first time, and TDR might be possible in 3 years.

    Well I was watching the films I made and now i remember that the ride itself was having technical problems. We stoped once inside the ride. And before we board I saw the chairs stoping twice. So that could help also. But still it's the best version of them all.

    As for the dragon, It's huge. My picture only shows the head so it looks small, but it's not. It's the biggest AA in Disneyland Park

    The dragon was WAY bigger than I expected and I thought it would be big. There was more of it than I expected too, very fun and impressive. Great pics!

    ORGOCH: A dragon, huh? Wonder what one a those critters'd taste like all boiled up inside my cauldron?

    ORWEN: Well, I'm wondering what in the world Maleficent is doing dressed in red? She never wore red in the movie version of Sleeping Beauty!

    ORDDU: I imagine that even evil fairies like a change of clothes every now and then. But I must say, coruscant, duckling--I went back and took a second look of that picture you put up of yourself and I must say--you're even better looking than any of the princes on any of the floats in the parade. Do you, by any chance, know how to get to Morva, dear? I'd be ever so glad to show you around if you ever wanted to visit.

    ORGOCH: What? An' wipe the smile clean off'n his face? Cause soon as he gits a good look at yerself, sister, he sure ain't gonna' be smilin' as purdy as he was in that picture back there!

    Great photos! I love all of the parade pictures. I can't help but notice that Eric looks a lot like Gaston.

    I love the Alice In Wonderland and Chernabaug parade floats. So detailed! Looking forward to more.

    Day 1 - Part 3

    After the parade we decided to have dinner before anything else. And to go away from Main Street. So we went to Fantasyland. Had dinner there and then went to Alice Labyrinth. It's quite fun going around there. The last time I went to DLRP it was closed so I enjoyed going there again.





    We went to the castle inside the maze to take some pictures of Fantasyland. The view from there is great.







    I love the view of Space Mountain from there also. We can see the top of it



    We went for then for Main street again to grab a place to see the night shows. The street at night looks awsome. Really...



    Then came the parade. I only saw the Main Street Electrical Parade. Never this one... It great, especially the stops and the lights also in the castle.



    Pluto was inside this one :P



    The three good fairies



    I love this float.







    And the end of it



    After the parade we saw the Candlebration and Wishes. I don't have pictures of them from the first day. I was filming it and my mother was watching. But I have some from the second day.
    To be continued...

    Great pictures. Particularly of the Alice Maze and view from The Queen of Hearts castle.

    Re. The above picture. When I saw Fantillusion, Goofy was peeping out of the curtains on this float. I assume that something happens with it during the transformation scene as it is pretty dull oherwise. Anyone know exactly what happens?

    Goofy was on the other side of the float. I saw the back of him. I didn't see the stop but when the float pass by me they were peeking from the curtains making everyone laugh.
