    Photo Update September 13, 2006!

    Just popped into the park for an hour to ride a few rides this morning. Nothing was over a 20 minute wait... except for the dreaded SECURITY CHECK POINT! Not sure why the backup was so great for all stations, other than perhaps Micechatters getting in before the idea of metal detectors, strip searches, bomb sniffing dogs, and no liquids or eating utensils gets implemented?



    Then, I saw a slightly different version of the Monorail utility rail car I had previously seen. Anyone know what this is for? Strange, but it moved fast!



    Just to give you an idea of the crowds, here's Tomorrowland on the top of Space Mountain. The first time I've ever ridden Space and walked right onto a car!


    Here's a better view of the "Space Mountain Rock" that is at the top, that I introduced in my last update from earlier this week:


    And I got a lot of pictures of Indy, many of which I'll post later, but the EXIT sign in the middle of the skulls sort of takes away the chilling effect, doesn't it?


    Pinocchio! And he's spelled correctly! Only he "nose" what an underappreciated ride this is!

    A few more pics from Indy (I used flash only because there was nobody else on my Jeep):

    Must be nice to have your own speakers and button when you rest in peace for eternity:


    The quick slanted view of the Fountain of Youth:


    When was the last time you saw Space Mountain completely empty? It was eerie:





    Nice jug at the Aladdin show:

    Cool pictures so far! How early in the morning were you there to witness no line for Space?

    The park opened at 10am, but I made it to Space at about 10:20 or so.

    I spent most of my time yesterday morning in Frontierland, which had...um...about 20 people in it. I was hoping to take a spin on the Mark Twain, but it didn't open until 11:00 and I had to get to work by noon.

    I DID take a stroll through Fantasyland before I left, and we probably walked right by each other. I'll keep a weather eye out for you if I go again in the next couple of weeks. I was watching the monorail maintenance vehicle as well. It pulled up in front of the tea cups just before I left.

    And great shots, by the way Froggy. You can never see too much of Monstro's uvela. (Why does that sound bad...)

    It must be nice to have the park (almost) all to yourself. It must be how Walt felt when he walked around the park.

    Lil LL and I saw that too. She said it was an ugly train. It had a few suits on it so we practiced our princess wave on them.

    Great update Frogberto! I liked the picture of the monorail service car. Here's the only time you'll see TL more empty, be the first one there off the monorail in the morning (taken January 06)
