AUGUST 16, 2006
Well I took my pictures on my friends cell phone but I guess he has to have a certain wire or something so he can put the pictures on the net. So no pictures for now atleast.
Okay here was my schedule.
My grandma was able to get me and my friend, parkhopper tickets.
Aabout 5 am, me and my friend woke up and got ready for the day. We were out of the door by 6:15-ish. We were feeling pretty hungry so we hit Mickey D's before we got into the park.
We then got to the parking Lot around 7:15 and waited in the short line since the lot did not open till 7:30. We then quickly got on the trams, got through security, & got into line at the turnstiles.
As 10 seconds remained till the park opened, all the visitors counted the last few seconds down.
DISNEYLAND IS OPEN!!!!YAY!!!! So me and my friend rush over to Space Mountain, but that was closed for the moment, so we hit Astro Blasters and officially concluded that we were bad space rangers .
I wanted to ride Haunted Mansion, and Wolfy999 knows how bad I wanted to ride it. BUT Matterhorn had a really small line, so we rode that first. At first I thought the Yeti was my cousin, but I was wrong.
WEll we finally got off of the Matterhorn and finally got to Haunted Mansion. On August 10, two days before we flew to Cali, people asked if I was afraid of any terrorist attacks happening. I said "Heck NO! I am afraid of the Haunted Mansion being closed!!" So I was dying to ride Mansion and LOVED the new effects. I liked how Madame Leota was hovering in the air and I also did see the face both times I rode it. My favorite scene is still the Ballroom. We passed by the bride and I asked if she was single.....I thought she kinda looked cute with her evil grin .
So now my friends friend joins us over at Pirates. People complain about the Davy Jones mist effect because they can see the projectors. Well stop looking for the projector !!! I thought that effect was really cool!!! I don't think Barbossa looked like the Barbossa we know in the movies though. But the Jack Sparrow AA's were amazing and so life like!!!! You know it is one thing to read, see pictures, and watch videos of the Jack Sparrows, but it is another thing to see them in person!!!
So after riding Pirates we went to Indy. Sorry fans, but the booby traps were still broken and the ride smelt HORRIBLE!!!! I guess somebody really ticked Mara off and created this devastating misfortune. But it was still a very fun and entertaining ride. This was my second time riding it. The first time, in '95, I had my eyes closed. But it still is a very fun ride.
I LOVE CMs!!!!!!! How many of you just enjoy chatting with CMs? I do! Well I went into Disneyana and got into a long conversation with the two ladies behind the desk in the back about the south, Indy, WDW, etc. Then I went down to the music store and talked to that CM about our favorite classic Disney Channel shows like DuckTales, how my aunt worked for Walt Disney, and how my Great Uncle hated the fact that all the dolls in Small World were white many years ago. So my great uncle donated the first Korean doll and since then, Disney has added more dolls of different ethnicities.
Okay chatting time is over, I have to visit DCA for the first time!!!
(Part two of my trip report coming in a bit)
