    Trip Report 9/5/06

    My wife and I finally got our alone day at Disneyland yesterday. We left the two little munchkins at home so we could take advantage of a full day before the 50th ends. I also wanted to take advantage of that time to take pictures of all the hidden 50th signs. I'm pretty sure I got them all except for the front of Columbia and Matterhorn. (they were closed and blocked from view)

    The day started off a little later than I wanted. We pulled into the crowded parking lot around 10:30 and the line was backed up. Of course I had to choose the slowest line. We parked in Mickey which wasn't too bad considering all the cars. I realized it might not be such a busy day.....until I saw the lines to the tram! Loooonnnggggg, but then again, we were getting there right around opening so I was thinking positive. It moved fast and we were finally in line to get in.

    We headed straight over to Pirates, 15 minute wait. Then Haunted Mansion, 15 minutes also. I finally got to see the upgrades on HM. (The last few times we've been, the ride was either closed or we didn't make it because of my girls.) I love the changing portraits in the attic scene, the new bride is great but I miss the old one. I got to see the morphing image in the seance room but only saw 2 changes happen.

    After hanging out and taking some pictures, we decided to eat at Cafe Orleans. And who did we see there???????? The one and only Al Bundy, played by Ed O'Neill!! He was there with family or friends and a Disney escort. I didn't get a picture, I don't like doing that. People just let him be and it looked like he was having a great time. (he really likes to talk)

    The rest of the day was filled with rides, heat, pictures, shopping, heat, eating, hanging out, and some more heat.
    Oh, and a funny thing I never noticed before. I haven't sat in the front of Splash Mountain for years. I've always been put in the back, which I like better so my hands don't cover anyone when I throw them up. But this time, I was put in the very front with what I would call a some what heavy log behind me. The funny thing that I never noticed was just how deep the nose of your log actually goes into the water on the drops! There were 3 times where I thought the water was for sure going to come right over the top of it and right into my lap! I can't even tell you how many times I've rode this ride and never noticed it before.

    Anyway, the day was great. The park wasn't crowded at all. Rides were running. I had a great time.
    I have a bunch of pictures I'd like to post but I'm at work.....ssssshhhhh don't tell anyone....so I can't right now. I'll do my best to post them tonight.

    And on a side note, I think I finally got to see (not meet) my first micechatter. I'm pretty sure I saw MissChristine in World of Disney last night. Maybe one day I'll make it out to a meet and finally get to meet you all in person.

    Great shots of some of those 50's! Love the Pizza Port with the moon overhead.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
