A new Trip Report.
Here is the story:
My Dad has been in the United States Air Force for about 24 years. So what happend was the United States Air Force drill team was going to perform a routine at Disneyland on Main Street, and so his squadron got tickets to go to Disneyland to see this, and my Dad was able to get Mom and himself a pair (since they didn't renew thier annual passes this year). So on Monday we went to the Disneyland Resort to watch the drill team and have a day of fun.
Driving into the parking lot.
The Timon parking lot was closed off
With the Timon parking lot closed off, we were forced to go park in the Mickey and friends parking structure and take the tram to the Main Entrance. I'll be honest with you, the parking structure isn't that greatly built if you ask me.
The new Christmas decorations were put on top of the entrance.
The clock on Main Street showing 11: 04 A.M.
We had entered the park earlier than expected. The US Air Force Drill Team performance was not until about 1:30 P.M, so we decided to try and find something to do.

While walking onto Main Street, the Christmas decorations were already up on Main Street, and the Christmas music was already starting to play. I decided to go take a look at some of the new Christmas decorations.

After Mom took care of something really quick, she wanted to have a picture next to the tree that was in the center.

Mom wanted a pic in front of the castle- she loves to do these kinds of things.
We still had more than one hour-and-a-half for the show, so we decided to head on over to Fantasyland for a ride, which, surprisingly, none of them really had a wait.
Down for refurbishment
I hadn't been on Casey Jr. in a month, and since it is becoming one of my favorite rides in Fantasyland, I decided to go for a ride on it.

It was about 12:15 when we got out of Fantasyland, and after around this time, it was time to eat. After we discussed it, we decided on Plaza Inn. I'll be honest with you: the only meal that I really eat at the Plaza Inn is the Chicken Alfredo pasta- it is the only thing that is descent. The chicken in my opinion isn't that great, and the Pot Roast tastes a little soggy, as does the vegetables.
My Mom took a picture of me next to the Chirstmas tree. Where we sat at- near the window-- it was cold.

After lunch, it was getting close to the start of the Drill Team performance, so we decided to head back towards Town Square to find a place to see it.

A little background info about the Drill Team. What this is is that the drill team tours all over the United States to raise awareness for the Air Force and what they are all about. What the Drill team does is perform routines to show that they are strong, and that they can't break concentrations. While watching, I took a couple of videos of it. Here is the first one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=BGMwl_iWvHk And here is one of them peforming a routine called the Domino: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=Ceb4xrZw7y8
Dad talked with someone he knew from the Drill Team.
More to come...
