    Trip report Sept. 10, 2006

    Overall, not a terribly busy day - I think the longest line I saw was 30 minutes for Splash Mountain at peak times (11-4). There was a 9pm Fantasmic show, but no fireworks on Sundays - Fridays and Saturdays only for now!

    First of all, the Vineyard Room and Wine Country Trattoria are open, but undergoing what appears to be an exterior refurbishment (or a fresh coat of paint):



    I hadn't noticed this window display in DCA before, but it's very well done (and must have been there throughout the "summer of Pirates", but I just hadn't taken note of it):





    Into the kitchen at the Mission Tortilla Factory (maseca!), for a quick snack:



    And then it's over to Disneyland. Someone asked about the Redhead big fig:


    It was cooler than Labor Day weekend, but still a nice enough day to enjoy Splash Mountain:







    The above shot was of the Mara crown while the sun was sinking - caught the light a little.

    Hit Space Mountain so that I could take a picture of the "rock" that was installed during the last complete refurb, but is apparently never used (might be a "rockit/rockin" issue, perhaps?). It's always dark so I wanted to see what it looks like:



    And pictures of the newly added FROGS to Pirates of the Caribbean! There are small tree frogs on the trees in the Bayou - some green, some yellow, some reddish orange -- look closely on the left:



    And tried to get a photo shot of Main Street at night (time lapsed):

    Yippee! I've been waiting all day for folks to give photo/trip reports for the weekend! Master Gracey kindly filled the need for a while, but I kept thinking there had to be MORE!! (but curiously, no odd sightings reported at BTMRR?? )

    Thanks, Froggy, for keeping us updated on things at the park. Though perhaps I should stop looking so much as I get closer to my trip so I don't feel like I've "been there, done that"!! Nah!
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    I'm no Aniko (in so, so many ways), but I tried to take a picture of the Eeyore sign. No luck:

    I can't wait to spend time at the parks with my child someday. You two are having a blast.
