Though I said it in my PM, Armadillo, thanks for the Ariel pics (amazing as always I might add )
On to Sunday! Hooray, last day of the TR.
Sunday was again started fairly early (we had planned to get to the park for opening but we like sleep :\)
We decided to spend most of the day in Disneyland because we had spent so much time in DCA the other days.
Stopping by Pixie Hollow we were upset to see a huge line as always and when we asked the CMs we found out the fairy we had wanted to see wasn't even there. So instead we went to Fantasyland.
Coming off of Pinnochio we ran into a familiar face. It was Peter Pan. I was psyced cause I hardly ever see Peter in the park. We hurried up to him and a little kid jumped in front of me. Peter said I got sniped then said it was because boys are better. He then prompted me to race the kid to prove it... the kid was simply confused.
Finally I actually got to talk with peter and he was mad because I was taller than him. He jumped up on a ledge to increase his height and when I jumped up too he decided I was cheating…
We continued teasing each other for a while (I really love this pic cause it's so in character... for both of us really)
Peter's fun because we both refuse to grow up
This pic is also my favorite because Peter is mad that Darkwing Chuck is taller than him and Darkwing Chuck is gloating hardcore !!
Afterwards we went through Sleeping Beauty's Castle again but this time I had my camera. Prepare for more Walk-Thru pics... cause I know you haven't seen enough of those
Seriously, this thing just blows me away
And my limited photography skills do it no justice what so ever
The Diablo in this scene almost looks like an AA even if it's 2D
Washed out Sleeping Beauty (if I had had more time and more knowlege of my camera I would have taken much better pics... that's my story and I'm sticking to it :P)
Right after this scene we went into the corridor of goons (or whatever it's called) and couldn't get the doors to do anything. I accidentally messed w/ the middle one and it slammed shut scaring the bejeepers out of me. I screamed and a little girl behind me got completely freaked out. I felt absolutely terrible and kept apologizing and kept offering to go places before the girls so she knew they were safe.
This pic is blurry, but i wanted to say... I really wish Maleficent looked more menacing here. Compared to all the other versions of her, the one here ends up looking cartoony
Blurry spinning wheels of DDDDDDDOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!111!!!
The terrible dragon appears
All sparkely and evil
With all the powers of hell
and some cool green fire
to back her up!
A very very dark true love's kiss
We ended up watching som Jedi (best part was the Jedi master speaking in slow-mo for a really slow attacking kid)
By this point it was about noon so we traveled over to the hub because I had a present I had to give to the lovely Pratt55. Plus it was seriously a mini-Zonie meet. I got to meet some fun new people and though our time there was short (and a lot of it was spent with more Daisies lamenting ), it was good/hilarious/random times. Also, NINJAS FOR THE WIN!!!
Anyway, after the meet we went on Indy and then decided to have lunch at Cafe Orleans. While we waited to be seated we saw Mickey spying out from Club 33. He kept waving at everyone and signing that he *hearted* everyone It was really cute. Sadly he didn't invite us up
After a delicious lunch (of the best fries ever! EVER!!!!) we headed over to the Mansion
and decided to be camera word-I-can't-say-cause-this-is-micechat-but-it-starts-with-a-"W"-and-ends-with-a-"hores"
Considering it's us, this pic actually came out pretty good
The Nightmare girl outside the Mansion
A Sally sans a Jack
After Mansion we decided to try and catch a game of Musical Chairs at Coke Corner (cause i haven't seen it in forever). There were tons of Mice Chatters there (because I'm always there for the most documented games of Musical Chairs) including all the Hatter girls (Oh and Dreamer20K ran up to me pointing & shouting "I KNOW YOU!!" :P See Brooke, I said I'd mention you )
Peter making the best face ever (w/ MysticalSkye behind him)
I was in a Peter Pan mood considering the encounter that morning. Plus he was really really hilarious to watch
These three were a lot of fun to watch and I really liked get candid shots of them
Peter kept picking on Alice and vice versa while the Hatter was... well mad as usual :P
It also helped that it was my favorite Alice
This picture says the following:
Hatter: Don't you know I am a very important person!!!!
Peter: I have no idea what you're talking about
After the game we went up to Peter again cause honestly I had had to much fun picking on him earlier. When he saw me he said "you again" I said I had to come back because all the earlier pics of the two of us looked weird. When he asked me why I said it was because of him... his response was as follows
We then proceeded to have a very indepth coversation (which was probably one of the funniest best ones I've had w/ a character in a while). We talked about how he knew he was better than me basically because he was.
I was slightly offended
He liked my necklace and I told him it was Rosetta's (it's a silver rose that I got from the Disney Store that was part of a fairy gift w/ purchase thing)
He asked if I stole it. I said yes
He said the fairies were annoying and we talked about how all they talk about it girly things like hair and stuff
This was him imitating them
I told him about how that's all they had talked to me about and he was disgusted by this
He said I got some points for making fun of them and that I could make trouble w/ him and Tink any time
So after this craziness we headed back to DCA for the like 10th time
On our way to Monsters we decided to watch some of Drawn to the Magic
Woody was crazy... like super energetic and nuts. He was fun to watch
Cinderell-y (who I actually called Cindy w/out even thinking about it :P)
The only Princess we got to see all trip
Here's Woody. Told you he was crazy. He grabbed me in a huge hug before I could even react
Our last stop of the trip was going to be HMH but on our way over we ran into Mary & Bert. Darkwing Chuck was very excited
Our original plan was to head back to the Mansion to watch it light up for the night. Last time we were at the park (in October) we had managed to accidentally catch the mansion lighting (around dark the ghost host starts narration and all the lights come up). This time we asked around and no one could tell us an exact time
So we waited
After 45 mintutes, of waiting, Darkwing Chuck asked a random passing Dream Squad Member if she knew anything. She said the same as the others (that no one knew) and then decided to wait a bit with us. Luckily the lights finally turned on (and sadly it wasn't worth the wait).
Here's the link to the video I took:
The CM, Sarah, told us to hold tight and that she'd be right back. We waited and she did indeed come back telling us to follow her.
Next thing we know, we're at the side of the mansion and she led us back to see the original pet cemetary!
Then she opened a magic door and basically backdoored us into the foyer! It was the closest we'd ever gotten to an actual YoaMDs prize and it was one of the nicest/coolest gestures ever! We thanked her profusely and got to ride Mansion for a final time that trip
So here's like 3 shots from that (cause we slowed down enough to get good ones)
And really that ended our trip. the whole thing was a good time as per usual despite some crazy crowds near hypothermia and this cold that won't go away. It was a good one to end the year of too many trips on! Hope you all enjoyed
OH: And since no one guessed, the title of my trip report was very loosly based on a Stephen Colbert Christmas Song called "Another Christmas Song"
