Hey people! My name is Kuzcochik and I went to too many Disney parks in the month of May. Because of this, I am finally getting around to doing a trip report for last weekend, AKA Gumball Rally 3.
Rest assured, the title of this TR will be explained later but I told Darkwing Chuck to come up w/ a title and this is what he picked after we referenced it all weekend. As I said, explained in due time.
Our TR starts Thursday though there are no pictures. That night after picking up Darkwing Chuck from the scene of a car accident we headed for California (wow does that sound melodramatic. No worries though. He's all right and the trip served as a fairly good diversion.
We arrived in Anaheim at about midnight checked into our hotel and hit the hay.
Friday morning started earlier than I would have liked and we headed to guest services... why you might ask? To pick up our complimentary admissions
But Kuzcochik, you have an AP, why would you need free admission to the park. Why are you hogging it?
Well my good inquisitive reader, that is because these were no ordinary park admissions. These had 2 words on the back that made them amazing "Club 33". Yeah, you read that right! Kuzcochik & Family & Darkwing Chuck had a date w/ Disney's most exclusive club. A club so illustrious but well known it makes the Vacation Club actually looks like a secret.
Our lunch reservations were at noon so we got in a few rides before then. We made it all the way back to Critter Country when two rarely seen villains tried to apprehend us.
Luckily we outsmarted Brer Bear (the obvious weak link of the duo) and got him to give us the thumbs up.
So we raced through New Orleans Square, our goal close at hand
We gave Darkwing Chuck the great honor of buzzing us in since this was his first time there
42nd Wonder of the World, the backside of the Club 33 stained glass
The marvelous glass elevator... which sadly does not have an "up & out" button. (also ignore the high iso... my camera was being difficult)
Darkwing Chuck = Super Excited (seriously he was bouncing the whole time)
FakeyArtistic shot ^_~
My brother does not approve of DC's geeking out (I think at this point he was excited about pineapple)
One of the cool things about this 33 trip was I was old enough for alcohol. However, I was not old enough to not have a light up Tinkerbell on my drink.
I'm not a person to take pics of my food so you will not see my appetizer plate or my delicious chicken meal. This is my dessert plate though and it was only taken because I actually tried to make it pretty. Cause I'm cool like that. (Note: It was all delicious!)
With food finished, we spent some time annoying the people of New Orleans Square.
Most did not wave back. They stared at us like "How the heck did they get up there?" or "who is that crazy person?" or completely ignored us
We had to take pics of ourselves to commemorate the vantage point
But if you've read my TRs you know I can't make normal faces (as Aladdin says: You'll never get the same Kuzcochik face twice)
Darkwing Chuck doesn't know what's wrong with me either
Closer to a normal face
My brother is still unamused...
We then went to the other balcony... cause we could
The boa district of NOS (another plus of 33 is getting to see cool details on the upper levels that you can't see as well on the ground)
Chillin on the balcony
Really, what up with these halfway normal pictures... I guess Club 33 classed me up
Spot the Kuzcochik. I worried that news of my awesomeness would reach the world so I decided to hide from the masses in this amazing plant.
The other dining room
And it's creepy animal spies (read up on the club to know what I'm talking about)
Darkwing Chuck calling people to rub in where we are
A really beautiful painting in the bathroom
Oh yes.... I went there. Fancy Club 33 potty!
Enough of the potty humor, here's a Big Castle Wall Painting
Really cool Pirates of the Caribbean map painting (I want!)
This piano is gorgeous!! (and I really couldn't get a picture that did it justice)
The buffets for appetizers & dessert (respectively). Yummy
The bar... also yummy
Some really neat Mary Poppins sketches
Chuck and I had taken some extra time in the Club, so we headed over to Fantasyland to meet up with my family who were on Small World (my mom & brother hadn't seen the new version)
I love the lady on the left hand side of this pick with her head in her hands like "oh lord get me off this ride"
And then we hit up Roger
After a stop in Tomorrowland, my brother and my mom left us to our business (they had to be back by Sat so they were really only in the park for 33)
Here's some Astro Orbitor testing
My dad, Darkwing Chuck and I headed to Pixie Hollow because we had been told
a) that the best time to visit is during the parade
b) Rosetta (my fav pixie) was there that day.
Low and behold we waited a full 10 minutes in line at the Hollow and the Pixie on duty was Rosetta! Score! ^_^
Rosetta was a bit more over the top than I would have liked (Like crazy almost annoying southern accent) But she was cute and kinda fun
No, I did not mean to wear the same color as her... I didn't even think about it until we got there
Here's Rosetta by herself talking to the next group and doing Pocohantas Wingapo (or however you spell it) welcome.
Oh yeah, and Tink was there too
As we left a group of very annoying teenage girls were behind us. They started shrieking when they saw Tink and we literally ran out of Pixie Hollow (some guy looked at us like "what the hell happens in there?")
We made our way to DCA and hit up Mania.
Then my dad headed back to the hotel and Dana met up with us.
We headed back to Disneyland because... well because we could We decided to hit up Fantasyland
Dana loved her horse
So much she tried to eat him! WTF?
Darkwing Chuck was still in a food coma from 33
I don't know why, but I really love this shot (thx Darkwing Chuck)
Riding side saddle on Jingles... cause I'm classy
Elephant statue near Casey Jr.
And some pretty flowers
Then we were captured... cause I'm a monkey (who looks kinda drunk)
Darkwing Chuck is not amused
The canals and train tracks
Enchanted by the scenery
And having a very important conversation
Now we shall hurt you for interrupting us!!
With a spin on Mansion we decided to call it an early night. We headed back to the hotel got some food and then got some rest
Cause Saturday was a big day! A Big Day indeed!!!
*scary music* DUN DUN DUN: TO BE CONTINUEd
