Hey Folks, Dustysage has put together some amazing
videos of todays trip with his multimedia expertise.
Throughout the week Dusty and I heard reports of Disneyland's swelling crowds and 120 minute waits for the new Rockin' Space Mountain. With a growing anticipation to see this new version of Space and to make sure Dusty and I had FP's for later that day, Gemini Cricket and I left early to get to the resort while Dusty planned to show up later.
Gemini Cricket and I made it to the resort about 9:30ish and were guided to park on the Mickey level. No Major crowds yet, but the day was young.
At the Trams the people were packed at the first Tram stop. While gawking at the tram crowd we ran into Grumpy4 and Frecky.
Frecky showed up
GC looked over at the 2nd tram drop off area and there were afew people boarding over there. After confirming with a Cast Member that we could board over there too we walked right onto the waiting tram.
So. The idea was to hurry, get fast Passes for Dusty and I using GC's pass and then go poke around Disneyland.
We got a GREAT return time; 12:20-1:20. GC found another pass on the ground for a REALLY good return time; 12:05-1:05. So everyone was taken care of.
Just then GC looked at the Stanby line. "Hey the line is really short. Let's ride." GC suggested. "No, I gotta wait for Dusty." I asserted. "Oh c'mon" GC responded, "He won't know." With my conscience pounding in my head we entered the Stand-by line and up the ramp.
Some stuff going on atop the Matterhorn
He was right there was no line. "Well, I won't ride", I thought, " I'll just take pictures of the queue." We entered the building and I thought "Alright, I will just take pics of the show on the inside."
We then sat down in row one of a rocket and...
"No I'm just taking pics of the On-ride Photo system." I thought.
Well I rode it without my man and boy did I feel guilty. At that moment Hector joined up with us and we chatted about our thoughts on the redo. While strolling down Main Street, on our way over to Screamin' in DCA, I still wasn't sure how I felt about the Space redo. "Well," Hector offered, "if it's taking you that long to decide maybe that's your answer."
