    4/25 and 4/26 - Anabella and Gumball Rally Practice

    April 25

    I had explained the Gumball Rally practice to my parents, and that we were going to have to get in early to be able to register for the practice, so we felt that the appropriate decision was to get a hotel near the park so that I could walk on over there first thing in the morning.





    Driving on the 57 freeway



    Cal State Fullerton



    "Which way do we go?"



    The Anahiem Convention Center

    We arrived at the Anabella at around 4:00 P.M for check-in, and good enough, we ended up getting two seperate rooms.




    My bed with all my homework stuff on it.

    After checking in and eating dinner, we rested and I went to bed early to rise early for the next morning.


    April 26


    The next morning, I woke up at around 6:30 to get up and go walk on over to the park for the Gumball Rally.




    The sunrise over the Anabella.



    Well, if I said what it was, it would be redundant.



    Grand Californian construction project



    A vintage car was outside the Grand Californian that I never saw until now.



    Something new is on the way

    Now, if information was (and it was) correct, all the micechatters were meeting up at the Brea Bakery to register for the practice Gumball Rally.

    After getting a delicious bagel from the Bakery, I headed on over to meet my team, The Four Cabelleros. They included me, Rex Dopey 24, MickeyMousePal, and caesarboxfan.




    Rex Dopey 24 gives the "two-finger' hello sign.

    Everyone registering to get in



    Grumpy old Lutz

    Once everyone was done registering, Dustysage called everyone to hand out the question sheets that included the attractions people should ride. Once we did that....START THE RALLY!!




    "LEETT'S GET READY TO RAAAALLLLYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!"

    Okay, let's go in.


    After recieving the ride sheet, me, MMP, Rex, and caeserboxfan felt that it was appropriate to go to Fantasyland since a lot of those rides get crowded very early.




    Main Street looks great in the early morning



    The Big Ben



    Peter Pan glistens in the sun

    The question for this ride was what the color of the canopy was over the nursery. I'm not telling you.


    After Peter Pan, we felt that the next ride to do was Snow White. What was the question there? I won't tell you, either.




    The Dungeon



    The men's room is in tower...tower!

    After completing both Pinocchio, we decided to head on to Dumbo as part of the strategy: ride it before it gets crowded.




    There is also an old saying: An elephant never forgets.



    "Well, here we go again!"



    Timmy will whip you into shape!!



    Let's ride!



    Smile, you two! You're on Candid Camera!



    The Carrousel from above



    Gotta have a pic of the ride itself



    Clouds surround the Matterhorn



    Water from below us

    After Dumbo, we headed on over to Casey Jr, since we felt that would be crowded next. I personally think this ride is a lot of fun.








    Hey, how about a game of rock, paper, scissors?



    Double scissors!



    While on Casey Jr, SanDiegoAl was riding unexpectedly behind us!

    Great job so far.

    We did pretty much everything on the list except for Indy, Splash Mountain, BTMRR, and Storybookland.

    Re: 4/25 and 4/26 - Anabella and Gumball Rally Practice

    Continuing where we left off...

    We were still riding the Casey Jr, so here are some more shots of Stroybookland from around Casey Jr.





    Waterfall



    Different colored grass

    After Casey Jr, we debated over which ride we should do next: Alice or Small World. We chose Alice.




    Thankfully, Alice had a 10 minute wait



    TikiRoomLiz waiting in line for the ride as well.



    Down, down, down...





    Another close-up shot of the Matterhorn



    Follow the white rabbit

    After Alice, the next ride for us was IASW, since the question was how many fish were flying over us.




    It's A Small World looks as good as it was on opening day



    A view from the other side



    Brother Bear was referenced here



    Pegasus

    After counting the number of fish, we decided to look at we should do next. Since we were still in Fantasyland, we decided to head on over to Sleeping Beauty Castle for the walkthrough.




    "Okay, so what is next on our list?"



    Let's go inside

    We had gotten all of the Fantasyland attractions done, so now we had to figure out where to go to next. After some talking, we felt it was appropriate to head on over to the other side, and ride Pirates.




    The lagoon surrounding the Castle

    Our next stop: The Jungle Cruise




    The sign shines through the sun



    Where is this Jungle Crew as of now?



    Listen...do you want to know a secret?



    Good-bye, we won't come back.



    Dance, snake, dance!



    Don't worry, they have thier trunks on!



    Can you translate what they are saying?



    Can someone pick up thier trash and not leave it here in the jungle?

    Anyway, after we found out what the answer to what was next to the barrell, we felt it was appropriate to go on over to Pirates since it was next door.




    Yo-ho, yo-ho...



    Why is the Disney dream suite still here?



    The balcony above New Orleans Square



    After Pirates, The Haunted Mansion was next on our list

    After finishing the NOS attractions, we wanted to do Splash Mountain next since it usually gets crowded on a hot day .




    Splash Mountain was experiencing a 101

    Okay, now we need a backup plan. So...Winnie the Pooh was next, since we had to find out how many balloons were featured at the end.




    Let's go inside



    The ninth wonder of the world: the back of Rex Dopey 24's head!



    ceasarboxfan reading the question out loud.



    A closed-down Splash Mountain!

    After Pooh, we decided to head on over to Pirates Lair and back since the question involved a certain barrell of stuff.








    Thanks for the reminder



    We found the Green Lantern!



    Columbia sailed by

    It was reaching noon, so we were all hot and tired, and it was about 11:45, so we decided to head on back to the hub for...
    THE MEET


    StarTours1



    Circarama



    Astro Orbitor was being taken down piece by piece



    RPDigger



    MonstersGoBoo! with her Water bottle nose



    You see, Pinocchio, a lie grows and it grows...



    TikiRoomLiz's best friend, Betty



    Newlywed Hollywood1939



    Dustysage came up to announce the winners



    Come up here and get your prize!

    After the winners were announced, Dustysage instructed every micechatter to go over and get our food from anywhere, and bring it over to the Carnation Plaza. I decided to go on over to the Plaza Inn and buy an order of Pesto Alfredo Pasta.




    Menu photo!



    MMP decided to have Rancho for lunch



    StarTours1 cleaned his plate.

    After lunch, some of the Micechatters wanted to go on over to DCA to take a look at the new Mickey's Fun Wheel that will open at the end of May.




    The new Mickey's Fun Wheel is looking really great! They did a good job on applying the Mickey face from those old 1930's Mickey Mouse Cartoons



    The construction progress for the Wonderful World of Color.

    After this, I was just too tired to stay any longer, and I decided to just go home. In the end, our team wasn't able to ride Splash and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and the winner was the team of SanDiegoAl. But overall, the point was to just have fun. And that is what we did. Until next time, this is...
