    PirateMunkee's 01-11 Trip Report (Pic Heavy)

    The first thing we noticed when we arrived at the Plaza was that not one Christmas song was playing. That was a good sign that at last the holidays were over. The park seemed pretty empty and the weather was overcast and cold but who cared.

    We walked into the park and the first thing to stand out was NO TREE, NO GARLAND, and NO LIGHTS.

    No Tree!!!!!


    No Garland!!!!


    And to my surprise, guards painting the roses red....er I mean maintainence painting the lightposts black. Yeah!!! We are getting our old Disneyland back!!


    Look Ma....No Christmas and no Bling!!!


    First things first...Had to hit the Matterhorn


    Then over to one of my favorite BUT often empty...Star Tours

    Caught in a Tractor Beam...


    Then exited out to my favorite shop. My wife found this shirt very amusing..


    Came out just in time for the Jedi Academy...

    Now this is how Jedi play Baseball....


    "I've slaughtered Younglings before and don't mind doing it again!!"...


    "Pull my Finger"...


    "I may not be able to aim worth crap but hey, I look good!!!"...


    Then we headed over to Autopia and happened to find an open door the workers use to work the caverns in the Submaraine Voyage...


    Our next destination...


    I don't care what the rest of you think but I absolutely LOVE Rockin'. Wound up riding it 3 times in a row....




    We then headed over to DCA to grab a few drinks and hit Soarin'...
    (Someone needs to fix that light!!)


    And being the Rebellious Pirate that I am I had to disobey the "Please no filming or Pictures"....

    We get back into the park and go to the Coffee Shop on Main Street and caught sight of a hidden Mickey...


    We go grab some dinner and hear the announcement "Disneyland has concluded operations for the day but for your shopping convenience Main Street will stay open another hour" Now it's time to say goodbye to all our company...M.I.C...C-ya suckers because we have the private party green wrist bands that lets us stay until 1 am.



    While the rest of the party goers were headed over to ROA for a private showing of Fantasmic...we decided to stroll around an empty park...

    The Castle at Night...




    Snow White's Grotto...



    Empty Tea Cups...


    Nobody on the carousel...


    The Miracle of Miracles...No line to Peter Pan (Of course it's closed for an hour before they reopen to the party goers)


    This is how I feel sitting in traffic on the 91 as I drive into work at Knott's everyday...


    We then headed over to Toon Town. Looks like Lenny is winking...


    When they reopened we headed for Small World (According to the CM working it, we have two more weeks of the Holiday layover)..



    We left just in time to catch the Parade of Dreams. I just love private parties...Didn't have to find a spot hours ahead of time to see the parade...







    Then headed over to ride BTMR and caught a real ominous shot...


    Then Headed over to POTC. Rode it 3 times in a row (Thanks to no lines) and caught the hidden Mickey...

    Just a couple more Night shots...




    My wife thankful to Bruce we are getting a new ride in the park (OK just a rehash of an old favorite but still the same)..


    As we headed back to our car I caught hold of a rare sight that I haven't seen since I worked there....

    Empty Main Street...




    Empty Entrance Plaza....


    And this lot was full when we first came to the park...


    All in all we had a wonderful time. Pretty cold and threatened to rain but no lines. Couldn't ask for a better time.

    The Star Trader as you exit Star Tours. The front of the shirt reads "Judge me by my size do you?"

    Great photos- especially the ones of the sky over Matterhorn. So artistic.

    Being and artist myself I can see things that just look so cool. The shot I love the most out of the ones I took last night was the shot of BTMR and the orange sky behind it. I so want to paint that shot.

    How do you manage that? Or I guess the question is, how do I get my own private party green wrist band?
