Happy New Year everyone! We were out of town, but after hearing about the MiceChat plans, decided to drive up and hit Disneyland and DCA for New Year's Eve! Upon entering the parking structure, we saw the signs that indicated that Disneyland was no longer selling new tickets, but that California Adventure had tickets available. Someone in the parking lot begged us to sell them tickets so that they could enter, but as passholders, we couldn't help them.
Luckily, we had no problems going right in, even though I was nervous that they would turn me away at the gate.
Disneyland sure seemed busy, judging by the crowds.
We hit one of my son's favorite rides, Pooh -- little did I know that this would end up being my last ride of 2006 (I intended for CA Screamin' to be, but oh well..., Happy Pooh Year, everybody!)
The beautiful sunset over Splash Mountain as we were exiting Critter Country:
And the almost full moon over the Golden Horseshoe:
Then it was over to DCA. DCA just looked great, all dressed up for the parties. I hadn't been to a Disney park for New Year's Eve since 1988 (when you had to buy a separate admission ticket to get in), and it made me wonder why I had stayed away so long - both parks were so much fun!
Then it was onto the Micechatters meet. I got a table when the Cove Bar opened, and there was a fight between two people trying to get one of the last water side tables open. The manager was called and tried to calm everyone down. Some Micechat pics:
Everyone was so nice! Dusty and Fishbulb really made the Tadpole's day by playing with them, and everyone else was so friendly. Special hi to 3rdshiftCM who was sitting right behind me. Chernabog, Morrigoon, Maseca, MissChristine and Hector, Pezz Lightyear, ... Hollywood1939, Almandot, and everyone else I'm sure I'm forgot - it was great drinking with you!
