    Mania, Princesses, Parade of Dreams, MiceChatters Spotted, & More (PIC HEAVY)

    I was at the Disneyland Resort yesterday & had a lovely time. My day started out (as it should) over at Toy Story Midway Mania for 2 ride (one in the line with my family, & one Single Rider).







    I then headed round over to Soarin' Over California.



    After that I headed round to Disneyland & did Buzz.


    Don't laugh at my score. I'm not as good at Buzz as I am at TSMM.

    Next I took a tour of the new Innoventions Dream Home.





















    Afterwards it was time to blast into outer space on my favorite roller coaster of all time, Space Mountain! Then I rode my second favorite roller coaster, the Matterhorn Bobsleds.



    We then headed round to New Orleans Square to ride Haunted Mansion & Pirates of the Caribbean.



    Funny story here. It was about 2:45pm as I was coming up on the lift hill on Pirates, I saw someone getting off at the unloading area who looked familiar. So I go out the exit of Pirates & funnily enough, there was Fishbulb & a group of MiceChatters I presume. Didn't have the time to go up though, as I had to go meet some princesses at the entrance to Disneyland before the parade started.

    (Note: the next few pictures are high resolution ones, so the page may stretch a bit)




    I was the second to last person to meet Belle.


    I wonder why they group Cruella De Vil with the Princesses?


    Aurora told me to cross my arms like her Prince Phillip does.


    Snow White left before I got a chance to meet her.

    Next up, I went to go see Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams around by the Mad Tea Party & Matterhorn. Here are some of my high res pictures from the parade:





















    I've got quite a few from the Little Mermaid float, so bear with me.










    Sorry about that, seems I got my finger in the way!




    Finger troubles again!




    Smile for the camera beautiful White Pearl Girl.










    Good or Evil?








    Say "MEOW"!








    Why is Pumbba asleep with this bird next to him? LoL!


    Smile beautiful bird!


    Three lovely ladies


    Mr. & Mrs. Mouse of course there to end the parade.

    Next up, I rushed over to the Princess Fantasy Faire to catch the 3:50pm showing of the Princess Storytime show. This one was with Cinderella. After that, I hung around for the Royal Coronation Ceremony.



    Then, as the line was relatively short, I went to meet some more Princesses, this time at PFF.


    Cinderella asked my name & where I live.


    I got Aurora again, but who's complaining!


    Pocahontas & her handler admired my height for my age (I'm over 6 foot, & I'm only 13). The handler said I could be Goofy some day!

    I got a phone call from my parents while I was in line for the Princesses telling me to get over to Critter Country, so we could ride Splash Mountain. So as soon as I was done with the Princesses, I jetted to Splash. But I walked past Ariel's Grotto, & the line for Ariel was non-existent, so I manged to get a picture taken with her too!



    After I got soaked on Splash, we headed over to White Water Snacks for what else, but snacks. It was about 6PM when I was in there, & as I was leaving, I think I saw Dan-Tasmic! Dan, was that you?

    I then headed back into DCA, where I rode Toy Story Midway Mania 2 more times.








    The 3rd ride of the day (my score is on the left).



    The 4th ride (my personal best score).





    I ended the day with It's Tough to be a Bug, Heimlich's Chew Chew Train, & Tuck 'n Rolls Drive 'Em Buggies. We got 3 big bags of pretzels in Greetings from California, had a chat with a cast member in the college program (I want to do it so badly now!), & headed home.

    TTFN!

    Awesome TR Luke... love the POD photos you got.

    Long Live Ariel

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Yes, that was me. We were there getting a bite to eat. Why didn't you come by and say "Hi?"

    Well, I wasn't sure if it was you. And my parents would find it a bit weird if I went up to some complete stranger & said hi. You know what I'm saying.

    No harm in asking. You are 50/50 right, I love meeting new MCers.
