My wife and son went to Fresno this weekend to visit my SIL who goes to CSU there. So I've been on my own since yesterday morning. I figured what would be better to do with my Sunday than spend a few hours at DL?
I left the house at about 8:20. Traffic was light and I got to the park around 9:40. At least I got to the turn from Ball Rd to the park by 9:40. It was half hour or more before I got to a parking space.
I went through Downtown Disney to the Monorail. I had LEGO store gift cards to burn so I stopped in there on my way. Nothing I was interested in though.
I wanted to ride Star Tours and Matterhorn since I hadn't been on either of those in a while. I walked past ST and the line was huge. I wasn't waiting. I wandered over to Matterhorn and the lines met in the middle on the backside of the mountain. Not waiting for that.
I decided to head over to Gibson Girl and get some ice cream and relax until the meet. This was around 10:40. When I got there they had a sign up that said they weren't open until 11:30. Rats.
So I headed into NOS and towards the Gallery which I hadn't seen in a while. But the chains were up at the bottom of the stairs. Foiled again.
Then I headed back to the Matterhorn and waited half an hour or so. Still a fun ride, but it seemed like I was thrown around the car more without another person in the car.
After the bobsleds I went back to Gibson Girl for ice cream, but there was apparently a freezer malfunction and they had no ice cream. So I headed over to the Tiki Bar for a Dole whip float. I got in line on the Tiki Room side. There was only one CM working the booth. The line on the other side was back to the TR exit. I got my float and headed over to the meet.
The meet lasted half an hour. Dusty had a surprise for us. Lunch was at Taste Pilots. This was my first time there. There was no seating at TP so it was decided that we'd walk halfway across the park to Hollywood and Dine, I guess since most of the planned afternoon activities were over there.
We ate and hung out for a while, then saw Muppetvision and went on ToT.
After that's when I left for home. Traffic was light and I made good time.
It was a fun day and I'm sure that the people who are still there are having a great time.
