As some of you know, I went for two days. Well here goes my first attempt at a disneyland trip report.
MAN WAS IT CROWDED! I'm not kidding, it was like the whole world was in DL that day. Indiana jones was 2 hours daily, as well as splash and space mountain. I can't believe how crowded it was, at one point the POTC line was backed up winding through a lot of NO and to the golden horseshoe.
The knife is finally back in the ride description plaque (it had been stolen). It was a plastic/wooden handle with a metal blade (handle was like a pirate sword). Now it is some sort of golden metallic bird.
The snow on mainstreet was quite impressive. Although, it got a little slippery and I'm surprised they don't have it in more areas. I thought the fireworks were terribly sad in comparison to the 50th fireworks...When will they start that again if ever?
I noticed that the picture slideshow thing in SM was back up, took like 3 years didn't it?
NOTICE: The tomorrowland Big Fig is BACK up for sale for those who want to know. It is $195. but alas, the adventureland one isn't for sale
Jedi Knight training was pretty entertaining, great replacement for that buzz show. It was quite funny especially in some parts. I didn't even bother going on star tours, simply because it just seems depressing by lack of up keeping and excitement (film looks like doggy poop).
Now I have a couple of things I'd like to point out:
1: I don't know what the rules are, but are CM's supposed to curse while doing their job? I had one girl checking my seatbelt on matter horn and she said loudly (toward the crowds) "These da** people!" Now I'm no prude, but that seems a little wrong for a CM around children.
2: I saw Erik Estrada coming off of the train! Some guy yelled "It's Erik Estrada!" ANd he just briskly walked by. That was pretty cool, as I've seen the show and other things he's been in.
3: FLASH PICTURES IN POTC IS DRIVING ME NUTS! Every time I go there is some person or people who take flash pictures non stop in the darkest places. Not only does it ruin the mood, but it freakin hurts the eyes! Why don't they say "no flash photography" like they do "keep your hands inside the boats" when someone goes out of order?
4: A CM gave me a pass to get on any ride other than Pirates, like a fastpass. Is this part of the YOAMD or something? It sucked because he gave it to me at like 11:30 so i only had like 30 min to use it and the lines weren't long anyways...would have been VERY useful earlier.
I'll stop writing now.
