    2.11.07 -- Coheteboy's First Single Rider Meet (photos on page 1 & 2)

    sin·gle [sing-guhl] - adjective, verb, -gled, -gling, noun
    –adjective
    1. only one in number; one only; unique; sole: a single example.
    2. unmarried: a single man.
    –noun
    3. one person or thing; a single one.
    4. an accommodation suitable for one person only, as a hotel room or a table at a restaurant: to reserve a single.


    Now, just to get this out in the open, the Single Rider meet isn't a dating service (though the possibility isn't ruled out), but just a meet for those who are solo travelers or lone passholders who want to explore the park with other fellow loners (and I mean that in the nicest possible way).

    Mousercise was gracious enough to arrange a meet despite small interest on Feb11, following the usual noon hub meet. The following account took place in real time with real people. All characters are fictional and if resemble actual persons, it's only by coincidence.

    This is also my very first trip report on MiceChat.


    February 11, 2007.

    11:30 -- I leave home to find wet streets and cloudy skies. Hmm... this is going to be a gloomy day I'm guessing. I better wear long sleeves.

    11:45 -- I arrived at the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure and park in Mickey 2F. UGH. Probably the furthest back I've ever parked!

    But arriving at the tram stop, the clouds were moving away to reveal Mr. Sun!


    12:01 -- The entrance greeted me with a nice surprise as well! I'm pretty sure the early morning clouds played a role in this, but it wouldn't stay quiet for long!


    12:06 -- I arrive at the hub to see the standard meet already there.


    The clouds were just stunning today... all white and fluffy. It's as if they were shaped perfectly behind the castle and the Partners statue.


    More pics of the mice chatters...




    12:46 -- About this time the mice chatters split up. Some headed to New Orleans Square, others went to White Water Snacks at the Grand Californian.

    The dried up creek between the Grand Californian Hotel and DCA.


    We all made sure we got our Fast Passes for Soarin' Over California (set for between 5 and 6 p.m.) and made our trek over back to Disneyland. David Lane parted ways and headed deep into the heart of DCA.

    14:18 -- We had about twelve minutes to spare before it was time to hit up the Single Rider Meet but we made a quick baggage drop for Neverneverland.



    Pezz Lightyear and Monorail Man pretend to talk as I snap this photo.


    Heading up Main Street, U.S.A., it was amazing to see so many music acts all at once.

    Here's the Firehouse musicians with Cruella De Vil.


    And Donald Duck beating to his own drum with some other Main Street musicians.


    14:30 -- Snow White's Wishing Well is the location of the Single Rider Meet with a meet time of 2:30 p.m.





    Who shows up to the meet? More on this later. I need to find some dinner.

    Cool picture of the sky clearing as you waited for the tram.

    I liked the side view of the castle, did you take that so you'd block the tarps, cause the angle w/ that lighting at that time of day is flattering.

    LOL, I wish my answer was that, but it's just the angle from where Snow white's wishing well was.


    Ok and now that I scarfed down that Quizno's Double Pastrami Sandwich, I'm ready for more posting!


    14:45 --
    We waited around for more folks to show, but only this guy...




    Crazylegs tried to offer the boy some Pocky, courtesy of Mousercise, but he would not. Not sure why, because it wasn't "Men's Pocky" but oh well. He missed out.


    Here's organizer Mousercise with the Pocky she brought for everyone.




    We waited as long as possibly could for anyone else to join the fun, but all who showed was dontbecheekin. So her, me (coheteboy), mousercise, mrmainstreet, NeverNeverland, StitchTT6, and Pezz Lightyear went off on our merry way. Monorail Man and Crazylegs had a sudden change in 'single' heart and went off on their own journey.


    The remaining seven of us realized that we had done nothing for three hours and the executive decision was to go on Pirates of the Caribbean. But only after we look for some 'secret' bathrooms.


    We walked through Rancho Del Zocalo and I thought the light shining through the corridoor was pretty stunning.




    Will these guys ever leave us alone??



    Pirates. A group of single riders select a ride that doesn't allow for 'single riders' as a good way to start.



    As soon as we exited Pirates, the difficult decision arose as to what we should ride next. In my opinion, the second ride of the day determines how the rest of the day will go. Superstitious I know, but hehe.. it's MY trip report okay??

    So! We've all done Haunted Mansion to death in the recent months, and with Splash Mountain down for the count, we knew the wait for Pooh was probably less than a minute long.





    Along the way, Mousercise leaked that she had never experienced the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes before. WHAAA???? It was then decided that the rest of the day would be a tribute to the Underappreciated Rides of Disneyland.


    Is it humany possible to squeeze SEVEN grown adults into one bee-hive? Yes. No rider will be left behind!




    The Pooh ride... well.. to be honest, I couldn't even think about the ride. Pezz Lightyear was on my lap.


    Then it was time for the Canoes! It was a win-win for everyone as NeverNeverland wanted to see the Canoeboys, and there were a two pretty cute canoegirls for the gents as well. StitchTT6 opted out of the canoes but waited until we were done to regroup.




    first row: dontbecheekin, mrmainstreet. middle: me, mousercise. back: neverneverland, pezz lightyear.



    The Canoes were great. We had a pretty funny canoe guide... much larger and older than the usual, but I think his comedic timing was a lot better than most Jungle Cruise skippers.


    Continuing on the underappreciated tour, we headed for TOON TOWN!

    I bet NNL made you all go on the canoes!

    And I'm loving the pic of CL trying to give Peter Pan Pocky!
