    AbominableSnowman1's 1-14-07 TR Redone w/smaller pics (Photo Heavy)

    Part 1

    Meet #4

    As usual, I left WAY later than I wanted to today (11:20 and had 30-40 minute commute)

    I was really happy knowing that I was going to be able to see everybody again

    I arrived at intersection to get into the Timon Lot at about 11:50 and took a pic of the beautiful blue sky


    As usual, the booth lines were long but could not understand why...


    ...then I found out, 1 CM for both sides of the booth


    I was walking to the tram and was somewhat worried about what the crowds would be like after seeing this...


    New ad next to the Security Check, which had no back-up


    The entrance lines had NO lines at all which were nice (sorry for the blurriness)


    The park map was nice to look at instead of the Christmas one


    Where the tree once was...


    It was nice to see that they were finally painting the streetlamps back to the normal colors after almost 2 years




    "Im late, Im late, for a very important date. No time so say 'Hello, Goodbye' Im late, Im late, Im late!"


    The horses on Main Street were looking beautiful as usual


    The meet was especially small today, I believe 17 or 18

    I finally get to meet Sadako!


    "Im right here, what are you gonna do?" (This is a great joke but you would only get it if you are a regular viewer of South Park)


    I also finally got to meet Crazy Legs who finally returned from an extremely long hiatus from the park


    Disneyland with no garland and no Christmas music! *sigh of relief*


    My mandatory Goofy shot


    Frogberto (who I also finally got to "meet") and Hollywood 1939 talk cameras


    It was still a *bit* too cold for these flowers to bloom


    All the Plaids get together for a group pic


    Little Tadpole made a new friend (Claribella’s son)


    Claribella and her son


    We hung out for quite a while (about 45 minutes) and finally decided on a place for lunch


    Almandot and Sam chose Bengal BBQ while the rest went Hungry Bear


    Dark Beer and his wife, Lisa(?), left to watch the Chargers game (sorry about that) while we left to eat lunch


    On the way over, I noticed that this lady was actually helping her child climb the fountain

    Crowds weren't too bad


    Pirates didn’t look bad


    Emo pirate


    NOS without Christmas decor




    A sign that was starting to sag


    Sadako was being hassled for something of any value


    A drinking fountain in NOS in desperate need of some TLC


    It's almost all down


    OMG AN OPEN DOOR!


    I guess Splash had a considerable breakdown so water was turned off




    We have arrived and boy were the lines slow!



    Choo Chooo!


    We took about an hour to eat lunch (which seemed like an eternity only because I was only focused on how cold I was)

    Splash was up by the time we were done


    Queenie was bringin in the crowds


    To be continued…

    Part 2
    We got some Fastpasses for Indy and then everybody went on a cruise of the jungle


    (I skipped that ride and went to my car to get my sweater)


    Took this on the way out (About 2:00)


    This guy was playing head games with this one girl... (Spell mop, pop, cop, top, bop. What do you do when you come to a green light? Say silk 5 times. What do cows drink?)


    Look at this amazing storage crate especially made for Disney by Target


    Can somebody explain this area to me?


    On the way there, I saw this guy with no shirt on, shorts, and bright pink socks with stripes that was riding a scooter(?) Luckily he was still there on my trip back


    No line for tickets


    On my way out, there were no lines, but I guess they appeared just for me


    I called Jack and he said they were at the bathrooms in Frontierland


    "Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door"


    I like this pic


    Met up with one of Crazy Leg's friends (Sorry I forgot your name!)


    Oh, this is how Disney fixes banners when they fly away! Electrical tape!


    It was time for Claribella to leave and time for us to go to Casey Jr.




    Im in the middle of the park!


    Dumbo is missing the rat dude on top


    Were here!




    The CM said 9 could fit adults in one cage. She was full of crap! We were scrunched with 5!


    A light post missing a sign


    Parade of Dreams...






    A bit too happy






    (There is an addition to this float, no water “cascading” down the shells, just clear tubes that somewhat look like water)






    The float operator was clearly seen under the bright sun








    I wonder why these ribbons haven’t changed to blue


    And why haven’t their costumes been changed to blue?


    Overall, the floats looked as if they were sitting in a warehouse for a couple months (O wait, they were!) The Princes were not on the last float and there were no other changes except for the Mermaid float

    We ran into a fellow Mice Chatter at the park, MinionLumbo

    He was camera shy

    Lets just say he gave Sadako something to Monday night that involves donuts, coffee, and a stake out

    We got to the Nemo side of Matterhorn where Jack and Julie tried to get pics of the Lagoon (They didn't succeed)




    Sadako noticed MinionLumbo was looking for his contact so she took the opportunity and kicked him down and used him as a step stool (haha JK. He offered!). I am still laughing from when she did this. She actually got a great pic of the Lagoon that I am sure she will post after watching 24. (I have made a ridiculous attempt to make a Mickey face in MinionLumbo's face to conceal his identity)

    ^^^For all of you Mice Chatter's out there who are hesitant about coming to your first meet, this is what you're missing... I almost pissed my pants when taking this^^^

    Sadako and Almandot scored some pins from the Dream Squad


    Maintenance!


    Sadako was trying to find Nemo


    Sign is still broken


    We had 40 minutes to kill before we could go on Space so we decided to kill it in the worst way...


    On the way in, Almandot gave the CM a Fastpass of HISTA that Sadako still had from WDW. He was very confused at first but got the joke when ten people surrounded him laughing with cameras.


    We were now ready to ROCK!


    On the way in, we noticed a ridiculous amount of dirt and mud in the queue...




    My first decent pic of the loading area


    My second decent pic of the loading area


    "Welcome aboard Rocket Rockers!" (haha how lame)


    You could tell how excited I was that I was just able to see the RHCP on the Space Stage!


    We treaded across the park to use our Indy FP's


    After we enjoyed a great ride on Indy, it was time for most to leave (except for Sam and I) I am so stupid, I walked all the way out of the park to say goodbye and then I had to go back in to eat dinner (Sam feasted on a Ham Sandwich and cookies in his car)

    After saying goodbye, I took this pic of these totally radicool banners!


    Sam said he wanted to save money and eat what he brought while I told him I wanted to waste money and eat at the Pizza Port


    Dinner of champs... Countdown Chicken Fusili with a Coke in a brand new cup


    Well there was some miscommunication and basically I made Sam fight through the parade crowds and come all the way to Pizza Port for no reason (I felt really bad).

    So after making Sam come all the way to Tomorrowland, it was off to DCA to ride Screamin'



    ToT was our last ride




    Then last but not least, a pic of Paul Presslers tile (Paul, WTF?)


    Well once again, I had a great day and really enjoyed meeting a bunch of new people. I wont be back to DL until the big 2 Year Birthday. You better be there! Until next time my friends...


    The End

    (Comments are much appreciated and make me feel special)

    I am impressed! You got some snappy little commentary in there too.

    Sorry Dusty and I missed the park meet yesterday but we were just beat and needed chill out time. We might be there briefly next week, but not sure yet. I sure hope to see you (AB1) soon. It's alot of fun hanging at the park with you.

    Oh and how did your cousin like hanging with us last week?

    VERY Good! It was always a pleasure to see you again. I probably should have stayed for the Casey Jr. Ride, if I had known that is what you were going to do I would have.

    Good Job!

    You know what? I dont think anybody was paying attention until I started laughing hysterically! I am suprised I am the only one who got a picture of it. That was so funny though...

    Ahhh! Now I can see the pictures! Nice job! I like that pirate who was teasing Sadako . We had an encounter with him on the riverboat and he was quite the pirate!!!


    Glad you had fun...it was probably nice to have a smaller meet where you could actually visit with everyone there!

    I never thought about it that way. At the last meet of 60 people, I met only a few, but this time, I met everybody at the meet. We had an awesome time but it was a little too cold for my liking.


    Hope to see you at the big Birthday!
