    Disneyland and Mickey's Trick or Treat Party Photo Heavy!

    Just got back to Reno from a week long trip to Disneyland. I had planned on doing a somewhat "live" TR while I was at the park, but the hotel's internet connection had other ideas. So, about a week late, here are some of the photos from days 1 and 2 (Saturday and Sunday) I shot with my new camera:








    Of course, anyone visiting this time of year must pay a visit to:















    I decided to play with the f-stop and took these two photos of the waterfall at Tarzan's Treehouse exit:








    People started "reserving" spots for Fantasmic! over 2.5 hours before the show on Saturday.....crazy! :





    I stopped by the MiceChat meet on Sunday. Most everybody was keeping occupied with some fake mustaches, so I said a quick hello to Dusty, then went on my way:








    Took a trip on the Jungle Cruise, where someone was obviously expecting some trouble:







    Of course, no day at Disneyland is complete without saying "howdy" to Billy!!! Obviously, this is a very popular show:







    Coming up: Mickey's Trick or Treat Party, Fantasmic!, and some night-time shots of Disneyland......Here's just a peek......

    On we go with our week long report. Before hitting Fantasmic! on Sunday, we spend a little time at Woody's Halloween Roundup. On the way in I saw what must be tour guides in training:



    Once inside we were treated to some great carved pumpkins:

















    Here is a little before and after. Before added color:





    After added color:





    There was also a magician at the roundup who entertained the kids and the adults:






    There were also some paper bats to color. They were pretty addicting, to the point that quite often the moms and dads present jumped in and colored a few:




    Here are some examples of the bats themed to Monsters Inc.:






    And an evil queen bat:




    The bats were so popular that Disneyland ran out by Tuesday. Not ran out for the day.....ran out. We'll end this portion of the trip report with a couple of photos of the Halloween decorations at the roundup and pick it up again tomorrow with Fantasmic! photos:

    Re: Disneyland and Mickey's Trick or Treat Party Photo Heavy!

    Welcome back, and thanks for all the great comments. I bought a Nikon D90 camera and a couple of lenses (35-70mm and 80-200mm). The second of those lenses came into play during Fantasmic!. We walked along the Rivers of America about 3 hours before the show started and saw that quite a few people were already lining up. Of course, there were the inconsiderate few who decided it was okay to just leave their stuff out and "reserve" a spot without even being there:




    Hey George, if you happen to read this, how about having some of your folks gather up this abandoned property so that people willing to spend the time waiting for a show get a good spot.

    Anyway, I decided I better grab a spot so I could get some shots without anyone in the way. While I was waiting the 3 hours for the show to start I got to see a lot of the prep work I had never noticed before. I got some photos of the pyro folks setting up all the fireworks to be used later in the night:



    A close up of some of the fireworks:






    Finally, it was on with the show! :


















































    That about does it for Fantasmic! and for the weekend. We still have Disneyland at night and Mickey's Trick or Treat Party photos to come. Here is just a glimpse:
