    Strolling Through Disneyland - 01/15/07

    After spending time recovering from my first ever bout with bronchitis these past few weeks, I decided to take a little day trip to Disneyland and enjoy the park while it was still free from the oppressive crowds. The off season is a wonderful thing! There really weren't too many people there today, so it was an easy going day by myself at the park. I know Wolfy999 was going to be there today, but I missed the noon meet by an hour - due to my inability to get out of bed early enough.

    Of course, one of the first things upon entering the park is the Disneyland Railroad Main Street Station.



    And then you go through that famous archway!



    The horse trolleys dueling!



    I love this elephant!



    I slowly made my way down Main Street soaking it all in, and eventually ended up in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle to see Mary Poppins, Bert and The Band!



    It was the first time I saw that performance, and I enjoyed it a great deal. But, what I enjoyed even more was the chimichanga I bought afterwards. Boy was that delicious, and huge as well!

    I wandered around by Snow White's Grotto and took a side view picture of Sleeping Beauty's Castle. I really like the timing here since the sun really adds to the look of the Castle.



    More pictures of my wanderings through Fantasyland.









    Eventually I made my way towards Frontierland and rode the Sailing Ship Columbia for the first time in MANY years!









    After my leisurely ride across the Rivers Of America I decided I'd head home since the sun was going down, the weather was getting cooler, and my cough medicine was starting to wear off. But, as I walked through Adventureland I was just in time for Storytelling with Aladdin and Jasmine. I hadn't been in there since it was restaurant, and I have to admit that I do miss that chocolate wishing lamp - that was a fantastic dessert!



    Good show, but not as good as the one Mary Poppins and company did. Once that was over I barely made it to the flag retreat ceremony. I love watching the whole thing, and I have to admit it gives me a good feeling to be present at that moment.

    Thank you all for the nice comments! I tried to add something a little different picture wise, and it was easy to do since I was on my own and could roam around as I pleased.

    Very nice photos. Great to see Mary Poppins out in the park. She's lucky she wears a coat in this weather. You chose angles seldom used.

    I was there today for my friend's birthday and it was DEAD! What a fantastic day to be in the park, eh?

    Great pictures, too, by the way. I saw Mary Poppins actually a few times today, too... Around 6-ish she was on Main Street singing with a piano player... Since when did face characters get to sing?!

    There I was somewhere West of Tomorrowland
    Flying through the stars just like
    Peter Pan
    I said...Dang this looks too good to be true...

    It's a nice day when you wake up in
    Disneyland...
