    Club 33 and Dapper Day Feb 2013

    Hello, again! For this trip report, I'm going to be spreading it over several posts, so try and hang in there.

    Originally, my husband and I had book Saturday and Sunday nights at the Grand Californian (at the smokin' Dapper Day price), but after some consideration we decided we wanted to drive up Friday night so we could get early entry Saturday. The Grand Californian and many other local hotels were sold out by the time we decided this, so we booked Howard Johnson. Mind you, this was not the Howard Johnson near the park (which is what I thought I had booked), but the HoJo on Katella near the 55. It was AWFUL! And no where near the park. My bad, I should have done more research, but we only had to spend one night there. So we checked into our hotel around 6 and took a taxi ($35 one way!) to the park. Ouch.

    I had worked the overnight shift the night before, so at this point I'd already been awake over 24 hours and was rather frustrated with how the trip was going so far. Luckily, as soon as we got to the park all of the negativity was wiped away.

    When we first got to the park we got in line for Aladdin, but after standing there for 10 minutes we realized we were STARVING! So we got out of line and headed to Flo's. We had never eaten there before, and we're always trying to find new food to try at the park. We ordered the strip and pork. Sorry for the awful quality of the photos. I promise the food isn't really this blue:





    The food was tasty and the portions were very large. I'd eat there again.

    After Flo's we stopped by Tower of Terror to grab fast passes. There were signs on every machine, a CM warning everyone to come back during the printed time, plus a new warning on the fast passes:



    Enforcement has begun!

    We decided to head to Tow Mater's Junkyard Jamboree until our FP window opened, and stopped for a picture with Tow Mater himself on the way.



    I got bored in line so started taking random photos in the queue:







    We hadn't been on the ride at night, and I really loved how it looks with the lights and all!! I love taking pictures of us during the ride because they always turn out so funny



    After we were done with the Jamboree (which is quickly becoming a favorite of mine), we headed over to Tower of Terror.







    Thanks to a thread on this site, I now notice the face on this thing ^^^^ And yes I know it's totally obvious but I am not the best at picking up on things like that! Haha

    My husband earned a rider swap pass from a CM because he helped a woman in a wheelchair transfer on the ride. I was proud of him. We never ended up using it... it doesn't have a date on it so I'm hoping to maybe use it another day?



    Our photo might be my favorite one ever. We try to make the funniest faces possible on all the ride photos. This one is a gem:



    You're welcome.

    I think that's enough for now. I'll finish up our first night there when I get a chance, then it really starts to get good!

    Excellent first night!

    I am also liking Junkyard Jamboree. It's way more fun than I thought it would be from just watching it.

    Cool that Lance Armstrong rode Tower Of Terror and sat right behind you.

    Oh my gosh!!! That totally looks like him!! Hahaha how funny

    Yeah I agree on Junkyard Jamboree. We rode is a couple weeks ago for the first time just because it was a walk up and we loved it! It's such a fun little ride.

    Yeah it definitely improved! It wasn't really all that bad, just sleeping in a bed that I was certain was unclean was the worst. I can deal with out of date decor and a bad location, but the dirt... No! Haha

    Right?! I even charged him admission to be near me!

    Yes, we will get her to ride ToT, and then she and I will get you to eat a corn dog. So many things to achieve!

    There are some times where I am okay with being ignorant, and the black light in the hotel thing is one of them! Hahaha I'm sure that room would have lit up. *shudder*

    Alright, let's finish up Friday night real quick:

    After ToT we headed over to Mad Tea Party (since Miss Poisonedapples insisted we check it out).





    We didn't stay very long, just kind of passed through a couple times. I enjoyed the music the DJ played, I wasn't such a fan of the Alice band. Still a fun atmosphere, though!

    Next we checked out the Oz preview:





    I am a huge Wizard of Oz fan, but I was unsure about this movie. I really disliked Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland, and I was worried this movie would be similar. I have to say, after seeing the preview and seeing that the actors do not have giant heads or neon face paint, I am SUPER EXCITED to see it!!

    We made a quick stop in the Animation building and did the voice over thing where Ursula steals your voice. We did the scene with Simba and Scar. It was really fun!! Sorry for the horrible picture, I couldn't get a decent one.



    When we passed by this quote on the wall, I demanded a picture!



    Awwwww.

    *gag* right? Moving on.

    We made our way over to Disneyland and took a ride on Pirates. I have found that I'm loving this ride more and more, and I'm not sure why. I have always enjoyed it but never really HAD to ride it. Now it's a must do!



    Then we finished our night up with a spin on Haunted Mansion, which I can never get a decent picture on so I didn't bother trying.

    Next up will be the beginning of Saturday, which I'll try to get to in the next couple days.

    Thank you to those of you who have followed along so far!
