    Feb 4th Photo Update - Castle crud, Jedis, Parades and more!

    Paradise Pier:


    Pacific Wharf:


    Grizzly Peak:




    Me and my shadow:


    And then the climbers came out again. I'm starting to recognize faces:


    Anyway, I wanted to get to the Castle, since the tarps were down, to check out the new paint job, and I see glitter, and shiny gold, but what's that stuff coming out of the turret windows????


    Looks like a mix of rat dung and dead flies -- GROSS!


    Just a reminder that not only people live in the park, I suppose. And now let's review the birds and the bees:




    Yep. Those honeybees were buzzing right behind my head while I was sitting on a bench - the least I could do was take a picture of them.

    It was a hot day, and I felt bad for the performers during the Jedi Training Academy - they were sweating up a storm:






    Onwards to Fantasyland:


    Snow White's Scary Adventures:




    Adventureland - the Jungle Cruise!












    The Parade of Dreams:














    I love how they hide the lighting in the Alice and Wonderland Float:


    And have you ever seen a horse-fly?


    This may look kinda dirty, but it's the trampoline performers doing their thing:

    Later that evening, we had dinner at Storytellers, and I had a chance to really appreciate the lighting in the restaurant, and in the Grand Californian as a whole. They did a really, really, great job, in my humble opinion, with the unique lighting throughout this hotel:























    Above is the fireplace in the lobby of the Grand Californian Hotel. The lobby itself has some of the most amazing "Tiffany Style" lamps -- I just had to take a picture:

    I hate you!
    Those pictures are amazing!

    It was a hot day, and I felt bad for the performers during the Jedi Training Academy - they were sweating up a storm:


    Wait until this summer, 90's and packed to the rafters because of the Subs, not going to be fun.





    So who dosen't think the JC needs a major upgrade.



    My guess would be "pig"eons

    Talk about attention to detail! The castle has a working, medieval lou!
    Great photos of the parade performers, I love those. And my favorite of all is the black and white gargoyles on Snow White. Thanks for posting these.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Nonsense. Everyone knows that olden castles didn't have indoor plumbing.

    That's what they invented windows for ...

    Sometimes, it's better not to have such a good zoom. Icky on the castle stains.

    Great pictures as usual!

    Simply stunning shots. MiceChatters are some of the best photographers around. And, it's fun to think that led by DarkBeer's body of work, we are all documenting Disneyland of today for future generations.

    Great job!
