Sunday December 17. The night before rain passed through southern California and, in it's wake, left a crisp sunny day. Dusty and I headed to the park. We returned to form by running late, but not too late. We had to get there as our dear friends from Arizona, DisneyAZFan, his wife, and their adorable daughters were going to be there along with our dear Al Lutz, Elly and her husband with their Converse, and the other usual suspects.
Traffic was light and the parking garage was a breeze. After parking on Goofy, no not REALLY ON Goofy just the parking level named after him, we made it down to the trams where there was hardly a wait.
We boarded a tram and then the announcer started up. We ended up with the announcer that is excrutiatingly syrupy sweet and emphatic. Yeah, THAT guy. The along the way while Mr. "Hey how ya doin'" Tram announcer was attacking our ears and good taste a father was horsing around with his young child. The kid was probably 5, over stimulated and the dad was going nuts, being overly happy and goofy. I swear the kid nearly fell off the tram like twice. Yeah it was a lovely tram ride. Dusty and I couldn't get off of the thing quick enough.
The security tents were wide open and we had no wait at all.
Same with the Turnstyles into Disneyland.
Dustysage and I made it up Main Street as the band played in Town Square.
