    DarkRider's Super-Spectacular Birthday Report (mit fotos)

    Another great birthday trip to DL on Friday. Got the button from City Hall for the first time, and it led to many "Happy Birthday"s, front seats, and flirting from CMs (no, that's just wishful thinking).

    Light crowds, as to be expected, even though it was a Friday.



    Started with a Dole Whip (two umbrellas - cos it's my b-day) and the first Tiki Room of the morning.

    Here I am, waiting:


    Then it was on to POTC and the Mansion, then back to Indy with FastPasses (hardly needed - only a 15-minute standby).

    INDY WAS SO COOL THIS TIME! I got the bamboo pole effect to work (scared the churros out of the people behind us), and I finally got to see the rat effect (the stars have been out of alignment for that one for about 5 years!)

    Some fellow MCers were there to protest the upcoming changes to Tom Sawyer Island:



    At Pooh Corner, we found a piece of merchandise attempting to capitalize on the recent controversy:



    As you can see, there have been some changes in the Parade of Dreams:



    Then we headed for the east side of the park. Here's a picture of one of the 4,000 people who got higher scores than me that day:



    AND SHE'S BLIND!!!!

    Then it was a quick zip over to the Matterhorn, where I won in the YOAMD and got to climb. That's me on the left.



    The subs are coming along nicely. Here, My Beloved really gets into the act. This pic was snapped just before security arrived.



    Then it was time for a few attractions in Fantasyland. Here you can see how sad my group was that one of our favorite attractions was closed. That's me on the left.



    Mr. Toad was practically a walk-on. That's me on the left.



    Finally found the "secret bathroom"



    Then we took a break and headed over to DCA. Apparently there had been some kind of a nerve gas scare or a bomb threat, because there was nobody there!

    Then it was back to DL. After another withering defeat on Buzz, we took a leisurely, nighttime trip on Storybookland, where we defied the "everyone stands up at once" rule. Never, never do this.





    All in all, a great birthday at the happiest place on earth, and proof that sometimes trip reports can be better when your camera is broken.

    OMG!!!
    That was awesome!!
    I loved it!
    Sounds like great day!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    That was hilarious! Happy Birthday and thanks for the laughs!

    (I wonder what was actually going in with the riot police on Main street- was that actually at Disneyland?)

    True enough. That was during the yippie invasion of TSI in the early 70s (also pictured).
