ok yes i know it's a few days late but i have been busy. lol. i live in norcal but have many friends down in socal. i have a AP and also my car club was gettin together for a toy drive sooo i figured i should come down for a few days. a few others in my car club have AP's too. one member, who is also on this forum, wasnt able to make it with us to DL but we were thinking about you Kristina! so on sunday night we had 5 of us and headed to the park. we hit up DCA first since it closed first that night. One quick thing before i get to the pics is that i just got this camera a couple weeks ago and am still learning it soooo for these pics i only touched up a couple of them. i wanted to leave them as i took them so maybe i could get some pointers on how to take better pics. We got there at about 6pm after the event with our car club.
The tram ride to the park
I fail at night pics lol
The sign above the ice cream place
And of coarse this one needed to be in black and white haha.
That was pretty much it from the first night. others didnt turn out well and i didnt take very many i was just kinda hangin out with my friends. It was crowded when we first got there but very quickly became rather empty. we rode pretty much every major ride in DCA and DL between 6 when we got there and 12 when it closed. Then not being too familiar with socal freeways i got lost on my was to where i was staying and didnt get there til about 2am ahahha. The second day the others that were gonna meet up with me had to work since it was monday. i got there at about 130ish. it was quite crowded. i ended up not riding a single ride. i just took in the sites, took pics, shopped and ate.
The christmas tree on main street
The double decker bus all decked out for the holidays
The crazy long line at It's a small world. i've been to the park a million times but i dont think i've ever seen the line for this ride at 40 min.
Several pics i took from the top of the mark twain

More of me attempting to get some decent night shots :/
Now i had purchased a stocking when i first got there around 130-2ish for a friend. i was gonna her name embroidered on it so i left it there to get done. i was told to come back at 7 (the park closed at 6 so i had a bit of a hassle getting back in lol) then i go to the shop at about 6:45 and i guess they were having problem with their machines during the day and hadnt gotten to my item yet. at about 7:20 it was finally done. the cast member was VERY nice and it's not like it was her fault so i wasnt mad about that at all. when i step out on to main street im pretty much the only non-cast member still in the park lol. it was kinda weird. then i went to leave the parking structure. talk about a nightmare! i got in my car at about 7:40. i didnt turn on to ball rd until 8:30!!!! then traffic light had gone down so they had officers directing traffic and since so many people were just arriving at that time for the cast party it was just a huge parking lot. i had a great time and cant wait to come back! any comments on the pics are welcomed! thanks.
