    Sam's 1/4/07 trip report! (Plus a couple rose parade pics)

    Well friends its a new year we all have smiles on our faces and everything is great! lol Well I figured I would try another one of these reports since I havent done one in a little bit of time. Where to begin though I took over 100 pictures how do I chose HOW DO I CHOSE?????? ............


    I start with a couple random rose parade shots.










    OHHHHHHHH AHHHHHHHHHH how pretty! lol well it was alot of fun but the part that got me was this!




    I am sorry but my inner Star Wars geek came out at this point!






    I take my hats off to all of the members of the 501st that were in the parade! It was cool. I also got one ok shot of part of the Star wars float....



    hmmmmmmmm this looks like something I have seen before.... I wonder where from???



    Oh thats supposed to be from Disneyland I get it!





    The line for the tram was not bad I only waited one tram then got on. And this was at 10 a.m.




    Check bag line wasnt too bad either....

    more to come...
    The earth is round.... or so i've found.

    Thanks for the RB pics. We missed it and my kids wanted to see the star wars float and storm troopers.

    well moving on I got past that short bag wait and look what I saw....








    A bit of a line for DCA!

    Disney land's was short!




    I got into the park just as the band came out to play songs!




    I watched them for a few then headed to main street....




    sure there were people but I was able to move around freely and thats a good thing! The first thing I did was head over to space which I did twice why you may ask? Because I felt like it....




    I was scared and shocked that the evil "I used to be the rockets monster" was moving and making really loud sounds at everyone.... Its been doing that a lot lately why did they ever fix it its such a waste people stop and watch it and either walk off shaking their heads or they go thats it????? Oh well! Heres a shot of the crowds below me in line!




    Not too bad... The line for space well thats another story!



    and heres the second ride picture of the day... it looks better than the other one I took but not much lol



    Ok now.............. I rant.... I love love love love love this version does it have flaws yeah but EVERY ride at Disney Land does no ride there is perfect.... well except for small world that ride is perfect for annoying the hell out of you but moving on. The ride video's I have seen do not do this ride justice and I know some people will not like it because they just wont but I feel that as a change it's a lot of fun! It goofy over the top sure but I think thats what this needs to be and the people that are screaming lame before they even ride it need to ride it and then make up their own minds.... even if you have a friend that doesnt like it you may.... I know one of my friends hates the tower of terror but I love it you just need to try it for yourself then make a honest opinion about it! Every random person I have talked to in the past two days that has been on that ride LOVED it and most of them told me it should never change back.... now I do not agree with that but....... It is alot of fun and I look forward to doing it again!

    part 3 is coming.....

    Thank you for the report Sam and for the awesome parade pics. Love the stormtroopers. Wouldn't it be fun if we had a Star Wars parade at Disneyland every so often?

    In any case, Thank you, nice work!

    Re: Sam's 1/4/07 trip report! (Plus a couple rose parade pics)

    So I left space and ran like crazy towards splash because I wanted to ride it!

    I took a couple of shots along the way!









    The line for Pirates was again loooooooooong but at least they had entertainment!

    Anyways on to splash!




    that's the way I do! I could not stand in a very long line not to get wet at least! lol heres a couple of random shots











    Now when I say a couple I mean it I olny have one last one on my splash journey and I like it the most just because it actually came out!










    Just about to head over the fall! YES! lol ok moving on!

    I figured I would take some random shots of things so well I did as you will see!














    It's still there! *cries*

    Looks like he could use some clean up!







    hmmmmm what were the wait times????









    Well then I went to the Mice Chat meet and it was the smallest one I have been too! lol but I still had fun Wolfy was there and DisneyFanaticBoy was there and Wolfy's little one was there and I got to meet Trekkie Dad he's a cool guy and so after we left the hub the group went into to D.C.A. I ran to my car to get food and we met up later but I did a few things before that happened!

    Part 4 is next!

    Re: Sam's 1/4/07 trip report! (Plus a couple rose parade pics)

    So.... I went to my car to get food and the I went into D.C.A.












    Look its rocking screaming!





    Well and this shot I...... I just had to!

















    Any ways I went and did single rider again because well that how I roll even more so when the line is like an hour for this ride I mean look at the line!







    there are a lot of people in it and I know the Disney people have to be happy about that!


    Here is my ride pic....







    the wind feels so good in your mouth and that bug was tasty too!

    Well after this I met up with the micechatters again and they were single riding it so I went again!

    Well what can I say about this ride...................

    Well I like the ride itself even with out music but when you know it should be working....... and it doesn't.......... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I went 3 times the last two day the first time the sound did not work the whole time it stoped half way the other two it was fine! The song to me does not work for the ride but bah and of course there are no lighting effects so it is pretty much the same ride with diffrent music not enough to advertise about I think!




    I like the sign!

    The next part is coming!

    Re: Sam's 1/4/07 trip report! (Plus a couple rose parade pics)

    So we all decided after Rocking Screaming to go to Monsters INC.
    So we headed that way! WHat did we see once we got there????



    WOW!!!!!!!






    Just look at that line! Have not seen it like this since it opened!
















    The ride was way fun like always and the after we were off we split up.... well everyone wanted to rest and relax DFB and myself headed to Disneyland to catch a couple of rides before we went back to go on TOT we all had fastpasses so we headed down the way....

    We got into Disneyland after looking at a certain little stone in the ground and we walked around a bit and we saw something I thought I would never see again!









    Pooh had a wait longer then 5 minutes!!!!!!!!!!! WOW the cast members must have been in shock they had a line bigger than 5 or 6 people!








    yes thats the line!


    One more to go!
