    RedStep's Amazing Reportless TR of 6/19-23 (pic heavy, be careful!)

    Finally making real use of the AP this year since the birth of my daughter on 12/30/07. Oddly, the exact opposite of what I assumed would happen. We've made three trips so far (February, May, June), but I never even really sorted the pictures from those other trips, much less posted. Maybe someday.

    Since it's almost been a month now, I'll set the stage for you: it was hot.

    6/19
    Arrived early on Thursday night, decided to go in for a few hours. Grad Night, so time is short.

    You can't tell, but she was a screaming demon for about the last 30 minutes of the 6-hour drive. Some fresh clothes, maybe a bottle, and it's all good.


    Space Mountain fastpasses were long gone. Coca-Cola knows how to ease that pain.


    "Pirates?!"


    "Remember what I told you about taking flash pictures."


    "Ouch"


    I swear to you, someday I'll get this picture.


    The cannon and the gun seems like overkill.


    "No pictures, please!" When did they add that?


    Verdict: Eh.


    Pooh = Much more successful.


    Mountain of Splash.


    On our way out, caught Remember! I didn't Remember! to bring any other lenses for my camera though, hence the somewhat cramped view.









    Back in the hotel. SLEEP


    6/20

    All set.


    What goes up...


    "I've got what I want."


    Go


    Getting Nemo out of the way


    Not interested in the scenery.


    Or Darla.


    Well, maybe a little.


    Definitely not a clownfish.


    Something planned?


    Hotel TV is awesomazing.


    As are Mission Tortillas™.


    "This way to the free tortillas."


    Don't mind if I do.
    (repeat this one about 16 times over the course of the trip)


    DCA sunset. The crane is my favorite part.


    The appeal of the Cove Bar is lost on those that cannot drink.


    Night Falls



    Disney's
    Main Street Electrical Parade!




















    A meal in the Carousel's shadow.


    Round and round...

    6/21

    "PETER PAN!" (it was only appropriate)


    The kids' room


    Day-glo Tinkerbell


    Not a fan of the Toad.




    "I sentence you to... Magic Mountain!"


    Overkill?


    Surprise!


    The Blue Bayou


    "Am I doing it right?"


    This is why we don't take flash pictures on Pirates!


    Flik's Fun Flyers don't look like so much fun.


    Jealous.



    Not quite the same thing.


    Looks like it worked, though!


    "I'll take the mojito!"


    6/22

    Late start (had to visit the Character Warehouse in the morning).


    "I never made it to Broadway..."


    "Stop, that tickles!"


    "Where did he go?"


    Watch out! He's behind you!


    Mara seems pleased.


    Neon snakes.




    Gonna miss the Parade of Dreams...




    Is this your first flight?


    I did, but all I learned about was how the pyramids were built... still confused.


    Midway Mania has elaborate ceiling(s).


    "The Aristocrats!"
    The joke didn't go over well.


    "Wait time from this point: 45 minutes."


    Nice touch.


    Where's Mario?


    16 Crayons? I count 7. Stupid budget-cutting...


    My prize (where do I pick it up?)


    Interesting store.


    Remember! Obstructions come true!






    Fantasmic!
    (and the return of the obstructions! stupid light pole)


























    New finale!







    Say goodbye!


    6/23

    Quick trip to Rancho


    And that's it!


    To everybody who made it this far: thanks for looking! Endurance is a virtue!

    If you'd like to check out the full-sized versions of any of these, check out my Flickr album here. The collection should be up tomorrow.

    Wow. Slightly off topic but what was the camera/lens combination for the Fireworks and Fantasmic?

    Also you mentioned the long drive, which can either be silent or very very noisy depending on the little one. Our littlest one is only a week older (12/22) and she's teething so I understand the fuss. If you happen to be in the area again please PM us, we would love to have a playmate at the Sunday Meet! Hopefully you took the little one on Tiki... not sure exactly why but that is the one attraction that seems to soothe our little one. She sleeps on Pirates, and wakes up on Mansion... Pooh is a hit or miss. Overall I am just grateful for Disneyland, a place where parents can ride with their little ones and capture memories like yours.

    Awesome work! One of the best TRs I've seen in a long while--and I'm not even that big of a TR guy. You've really got a great eye for composition, and as much as the more telephoto lens might have disadvantaged you during the fireworks, I love what it's done for nearly all the photos. One of my biggest weaknesses when it comes to Disneyland photography is that I tend to shoot wide, since most of my photos are for reference purposes (or snapshots of friends), not artistic photos. The result is that I can see more in the frame and get more bang for my buck...but they're a lot less beautiful in many cases. Anyway, keep up the awesome work! I, like techskip, am very curious about what lens(es) you're using. Flickr says you're using the 40D for the body.
