    claribella's 11-17 report (SUPER Pic heavy)

    With my new job I get friday afternoons off so I utilized my first one! Went to the parks for the afternoon. I got there around 2pm. None of the ride lines were that bad at all. I think the most I waited was about 30 minutes for Tower, which was my last ride anyway. I also rode that one first as it was walk on...as was everything else I rode.

    LOTS and LOTS of pictures...so I hope you all have high speed internet!

    I had some requests for photos and pretty much filled all the requests...except two. ...(so sorry DMof2 and Penguinsoda)

    The tram....didn't look that bad at about 2ish.



    I've always liked this fountain...



    First stop, renewing of my Annual Pass...then hopped over to DCA for a ride on the Tower and some photos...












    Then it was Tower time...






    Ok did an Elephant try and break out of this elevator...!


    My absolute most favorite piece in the Tower...the clock is nice to.






    Truly...words to live by...


    From the top level....



    I'll take two tickets please....








    Some clocks and gauges....





    Statue in the gift shop...



    Don't disturb the sleeping Diva....if you know what's good for you.


    uh..yeah...ok?



    Then I headed to Disneyland. The crowds actually weren't that bad at all. Certainly nothing like last friday....

    Looks like the Train got a makeover or I just never noticed it before...




    The Wonderful Christmas Tree.....


    Gifts are already open!




    Ran into Mad Hatter, Peter Pan, Alice and the White Rabbit playing musical chairs with some kiddies..

    Peter's thinking..."should I pull out that chair from under him..."



    Alice is thinking "why does the Mad Hatter always get to play and not me?"




    Some misc. Adventureland stuff...




    On to Indiana, which was a 15 minute wait...





    Someone here knows why I posted this:


    Shouldn't this say claribella's house..12 doz. bottles? I guess that depends on what kind of liquid is IN the bottles...




    This sign always cracks me up...ha...maybe I should take my ex-husband on this ride so he will "fall out and disappear..."

    Oopss..did I actually type that out loud!





    And photo request #1...Alexloup..this is for you!


    Photo Request #2 - Osky this is for you..I thought these mickey ears were interesting enough...


    Ok..so..was today National CM's Blow Bubbles Day?



    And photo request #3 - RideWarrior these are for you! Can't wait to actually ride it with you on the 10th...if we get the chance!







    Note: This is the first time I've brought my new camera to Disneyland...so when flash was used..it was by mistake. I thought I turned it off. I'm still trying to figure out the camera. But actually it didn't matter to much because there was nobody in the Doombuggies in front or behind me.












    I passed by splash mountain and made a quick right at the fruit/snack stand....


    And found the Columbia parked right behind the Mcdonald's Fries stand...







    I ate at Hungry Bear...and found a "little" something for Llamalover...more on THAT later...

    Then turned around and headed back through NOS to run into Captain Jack Sparrow. These girls were chatting with him for quite a long time and the other people in line were getting a bit upset. But hey..at least he didn't say I had an A$$ on my back (in reference to the Eeyore backpack I wear) ..which is what he told me the last time I took a pic with him...that is the dorkiest picture I've ever taken as he said it right when the picture was taken...I look ridiculous in it. Anyway...Captain Jack Sparrow.

    It looks like he's saying "please God..make this girl shut up!"


    Then through NOS...


    And onto Xmas decorations in the Golden Horseshoe...




    After that I headed on out for one last ride on the Tower and Soarin'

    This is a place I have yet to go to...


    It's always good to know where the "debris" should go!


    And it's always good to know where they keep the plane parts!



    But apparently the greenery in the very back gets neglected...


    Whew I was tired! I made a short cut out through the Grand Californian to see one of my favorite Christmas Trees.




    Then it was time for home...

    BUT I forgot about my #4 picture request for the wonderful Llamalover..

    INTRODUCING MISS ELUSIVE FELIS DISNEYLANIS!



    It was her bath time...apparently...




    And a special treat....VIDEO of Miss Elusive here! And don't mind my silly voice...I was just excited to see her! You know what..just put it on mute..I sound like a dork and a half! Ah well....


    *****************

    And that is all! I'm really loving my new camera but learned one lesson...bring lots of batteries. It has a short battery life, but takes great photos! To the two photo requests that I didn't get I will try to do better next time but I was only there for only about 4 hours and I accomplished alot for that little of time.

    I hope you all enjoyed that!

    I mean this with politeness and appreciation for your efforts. Please Please stop using a flash in dark rides. Thanks

    Well like I had mentioned in the post...it was by accident..new camera and all. I always curse myself when it goes off and feel super guilty. Usually I take the pic without flash and enhance it on my computer at home.


    Actually, I rode Pirates today and there was someone in the boat ahead of me that was flashing pictures just about every 10 seconds..THAT certainly is not me. It is quite annoying.

    Its a Kodak Z612. I had a Kodak V530 which was a lot smaller and my fingers were used to where the flash off button was I could find it in the dark...well dangit I know better now.

    The Hungry Bear cats are cool. I used to help feed them when I worked mornings. The woman who feeds them said she lobbied to park to get them spayed and neutered and she was also not quite right in the head but she was the hardest working cast member there.

    That is the only cat I've seen at Hungry Bear. Well there is this white cat that lives under the deck in the back. That one seems a bit more wild and less friendly than this one.
