Ok, time for the final installment!
When I last left off, we were rushing back to our spot on the parade route so that we could get our groove on with the cast of CASP! As I recall, we just barely got back to the Small World plaza when "HEEEEYYYYYY, GET UUUUUUPPP, GET LOOUUUUUUDD" started to pump up the party.
Anyways, here's CASP!
Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE Clarice? She is pretty much the greatest character ever featured in the park. You know why I love her so much? Because she's so freaking random! I mean, she was featured in ONE cartoon in the 40's and I just don't understand how she's relevant to anything at all! This is why I love her!
Shake dat booty!
Uh oh, looks like Donald got caught looking at the dancin' girls.
I caught Red in mid-backflip.
Woah, watch where you're pointing that thing!
Haha, it looks like Purple just told Donald a dirty joke!
A little celebration can brighten even the gloomiest day!
Confetti people doing the knee-wobble.....it doesn't get much better than this!
Thanks for having us, Mr. Clockface!
CASP always leaves me feeling super pumped.
But unfortunately it was time to say goodbye to everybody, because It was now time to go on the hunt for Kritter. I was supposed to meet up with him for the Play Parade.
I decided to skip the wave of confusion being left by CASP on Main Street at the moment and chose to take the DLRR out of Tomorrowland. While I was waiting, I spotted this little guy perched all alone on a guard rail.
Uh oh, he saw me!
My ride arrives
I zoomed through the Grand Canyon as fast as I could.
As I made my way back across the esplanade, I noticed this little detail on the "UP" display:
I nearly teared up right there!
Then I spotted a fine example of parenting skills *facepalm*
Ok, so now I'm staked out in our usual spot for the parade (in front of the Zephyer) and i get a call from Kritter saying that he's running late and probably not gonna make it. So after a brief run-in with some family that spotted me, I was on my way back towards Pacific Wharf to join back up with MGB's posse, which seemed to have doubled in size. So in the end, I was back in a group and waiting to play with some Pixar Pals.
Russel and Carl dropped by say hello.
If you still haven't seen this movie, go do it.......right now!
Ok, here's the real reason we wanted to see the Play Parade so bad today:
The triumphant return of out beloved stilt-walking chefs and their rodent buddies!
It's great to have 'em back!
After the bubbles stopped falling and the energy died down, Kritter finally showed up (with his special friend).
After a quick bout of deciding what to do in the down-time we had before the premiere of the Electrical Parade, we felt like getting bugged out.
If you sit in just the right spot, you'll find yourself getting Pwn'd in the face by the massive fog blasters.....it's fun, trust me!
Alright, we had some more deliberation on what to do next when we totally realized that we needed an adrenaline kick....off to Screamin'!
Because everyone loves POV shots...
I was just a smidge too early.
Brakes....BRAKES.....WHERE ARE THE BRAKES?!?!
Man, that was a good ride.
Ok, I honestly don't remember what happened for the next couple hours or so while it got dark, so I'm just gonna go ahead and skip to the end........ELECTRICAL PARADE!!1!OMGWTFBBQ!!!1!
This picture came out really blurry and weird, but it's a picture of the new Nightastic balloons. Seriously.....they're only light-up mickey balloons......BUT THEY'RE SO AWESOME!
The idea is so simple, and yet it's amazing! I want like, twenty!
Here's Tink in her very first public EP, and she looks GORGEOUS!
Honestly, the new music and effects were a good thing.
They really freshen up this ancient parade.
The 'shrooms are lookin' good!
You can see a little bit of the pixie dust here.
KISS ME HANDSOME!!1!
That stuff'll kill ya, y'know...
Cindy's still getting carried around in a giant vegetable.
The pixie dust in full swing.
I had a rather interesting conversation with these two.... it went something like this:
Me: "I LOVE YOU ANASTASIA!"
Drizella: "WHAT ABOUT ME?"
Me: "I LOVE YOU TOO, DRIZELLA!"
Anastasia: "NO FAIR, YOU LOVED ME FIRST!"
Me: "I LOVE YOU BOTH!"
Drizella: "WELL THAT'S NOT FAIR TO EITHER OF US!"
Me: "YES IT IS!"
Anastasia: "NO IT'S NOT!"
Me: "YES IT IS!"
both together: "WELL YOU'RE STUPID!"
I had our whole section cracking up
Bye Mr. Clockface Jr.!
Captain Hook's ship seemed to be spewing an awful lot of cannonballs......maybe he just didn't like us?
Smee being, well, Smee!
Well howdy, Snow!
The new mineshaft.
Ok, now everything started getting a little freaky. The music changed to an upbeat circus fanfare and there were big scary faces and dancing/fighting boys.
They all had ears coming out of their heads, but in the dark, they looked like growths or something. Then I noticed they were supposed to be jackasses. It was then that I realized I was enjoying a parade of *****
GHAAAA!!! It snuck up on me!
Pinocchio doing his.....chair-dance.
Ok, one thing I'm glad to see made it back, just for the sake of the lawyers not messing with everything, is the tobacco.
I think it's fine just the way it is.
Elliot is looking brighter than ever.
Nico and I made sure to wish both Pete and Elliot a "Razzle Dazzle Day"!
Let's get patriotic up in here!
The new firework effects really look amazing.
It's so purdy
Man, this thing is really bright.
The brightness.....it's not stopping!
GHAAAHHHH!!!! IT'S TOO BRIGHT!!!!
