I crossed the esplanade, from DCA to Disneyland, and I missed taking the many pictures that I usually take of the park entrance. However, I did get a photo of the Mickey Floral in the dark. I have this thing about not taking any photos with construction walls.
I did take a picture of the famous sign above the tunnel, but it didn't turn out so great
Next up will be City Hall, Walt's Window above the Fire Station, Main Street, and the Main Street Clock. Taking a picture of that clock is a long long tradition of mine.
Dolphin's Cove is located on Orangewood, just near Harbor Blvd. On the 2nd day of my vacation, I was headed to Early Entry for Annual Passholders I was going to ride the ART bus, but I wasn't sure when it would arrive, so I found myself walking to the park. I actually beat the bus there that Saturday morning.
The bus came by, just as I saw the big Disneyland sign on Harbor Blvd.

Have you ever been in such a hurry to ride a ride on early entry day, that you don't stop for anything. Not a picture, not breakfast, not a potty break, not anything. Actually I arrived first, and I waited for my friend Clara, and her young son. He rides all the big boy rides. Well at least he did a lot of them that day.
We did Mater and Luigi, or was it Luigi and Mater? Well either way, Radiator Racers was next. I was holding on for dear life in the race car, as Clara's son held his Duffy and listened to his mom and I screaming for joy. The ride is way beyond cool, and I highly reccommend it to everyone.

We rode all three rides in Cars Land, and then I headed to Flo's Cafe for breakfast. The breakfast potatoes were too spicy, but other than that, my food was tasty. Clara and her son headed elsewhere to ride rides, since they were not hungry. I found out later that they ended up on Indy.
After my breakfast, I stopped for 2 photopass pictures.
I left Buena Vista Street, and DCA and headed for Disneyland. This time I got a good picture of the Tunnel Sign
It's always fun to ride The Main Street Vehicles. I was surprised to see two Horsedrawn vehicles on Main Street.
