    AbominableSnowman1's 2-18-07 Trip Report (Photo Obese)

    (My pictures usually don’t work for the first hour or so when I first post them so be patient)

    *(My Trip Report is extremely long today so if you don’t feel like reading a bunch, just leave this thread)

    I know it is a cliché for me to say that I was excited to get to the park, but today, I was more excited than ever. “Why” you ask? I was finally upgrading my AP to a Premium And o ya, I might have been excited to hang out with Mice Chatters

    I pulled up to the intersection of Disney Way and Harbor only to see that the line to get into the parking lot was backed up to the crosswalk


    Yay for holiday weekends at DL!




    Surprisingly enough, I got a spot in the very first row directly next to the tram

    The cars are here but where are the people?


    As I was walking up to the tram, I noticed that there was a completely empty row *for me?* So I sat down and I found out why it was empty… there was a rather large puddle of water that I just sat down in

    Security check went quickly


    I think that all of the people that came yesterday bought the 2fer and were using the DCA ticket today


    Well I got in the ticket line so that I could upgrade my pass where I met a very nice, young couple from out of state that were excited to be there

    I got up to the ticket window and was greeted by an extremely nice CM. I told her that I wanted to upgrade to a Premium so she did her thing and told me the total price. “$124 dollars” she said! My eyes got huge and I asked her why the price was so high. I told her that I already had a parking pass to put towards the AP. She said that the AP prices had raised since I had gotten my pass. She asked me how much I was expecting and I told her that I did my homework and that it should only be about 60 bucks. She gave me one of these She looked at her computer and said “Oops. I accidentally added a single park ticket.” She nearly gave me a heart attack. So if I hadn’t done my homework, I would have lost 60 extra dollars that I didn’t have

    Alright, now it is time to deal with the crowds


    I crossed the Disney Way and Harbor intersection at 9:15 and entered the park at 10:20

    I walked in just as the marching band was leaving


    Goofy started to dance


    Donald joined in


    Beautiful flowers (I am leaving these ones large for people who like flowers on their desktop)




    Moooo




    Took this at about 10:30


    I still really want these speakers (I like loud music)




    Still under tarps


    And still no lighting


    Confetti trees were covering the ground with little flower petals


    Work on the Wishing Well


    Everybody was amazed that Mickey was actually climbing the Matterhorn


    Awesomely Arousing Ariel


    Neat picture


    Will these ever spray water again?




    Even on the most crowded days, Star Tours only has a 20 minute wait


    Off for Space FP for 5:25 (It was 11:00)


    I wanted to get some pics of the lagoon so I went to Innoventions because I thought that is where DarkBeer got his (This guy thought he was a DJ)


    Bow chika bow wow (My very immature moment)


    The nametag is still from the 50th and the note says Happy Presidents Day




    So I finally got to the exit ramp upstairs only to find that I had no view of the lagoon

    I walked along the construction wall to try and find a crack large enough to get a picture through. I got to the area where the fence coming from the smoking section meets the construction wall. I found a small opening to get a picture so I tried it. It didn’t work. I put my camera back to the same spot and suddenly heard, “Excuse me sir, but you can’t do that.” It startled me but when I turned around, it was just some random guy that was messing with me. Tried one last time and got this amazing picture… It is so colorful!

    Back to the hub (only to see nobody so I just kept going)






    The signs that don’t help






    Haunted Mansion had a really short wait


    The only thing I saw different on Splash were numerous mini red flags all over it


    So sad…


    This one is for VillansFan


    Something different


    Aha! The bench is finally all mine!


    My paparazzi picture of Almandot


    VillansFan wearing Kimber’s favorite shirt


    Sadako comes in for a landing


    Al Lutz


    DustySage


    Fishbulb


    On the FP run for Space, we found PezzLightyear and the Pezzlings!


    60 minute wait for the Dumbo for big boys


    Matt Hammond is being antisocial


    DarkBeer and Al


    Dusty said he had an earth-shattering surprise for us…

    GIANT POCKY!!!



    Wow, this is just what I needed


    Judimouse decided to join the party




    Brittany and CaptPhoebus


    Gemeni Cricket


    I am the only Con today


    We decided on Taste Pilots so…..

    Way too many things going on at once for such a crowded day


    We ran into YoCharles on the way out


    AND JustJohn and SimplySabrina (John waits anxiously for his hug)


    John and I made a Congress


    Yummy


    We met even more people over at Taste Pilots (Hollywood1939 and Grumpy8. Any others?)

    Brittany ruined the machine


    Since there was no seating anywhere in, or around TP, we were fortunate enough to be able to hoof it all the way to Hollywood and Dine during the Pep Rally just so we could enjoy lunch

    We lost PezzLightyear and gained MinionLumbo

    Re: AbominableSnowman1's 2-18-07 Trip Report (Photo Obese)


    We enjoyed lunch and decided on MuppetVision 3D where we actually found a line (very rare)


    After we saw Miss Piggy’s panties, we decided to use our FP’s for ToT

    Another rare sight






    On to another 3D show…


    Just as we were exiting, Maseca joined the group


    Dusty and Fishy left (Fishy is so sexy)




    Tortilla Time! (Corn only)

    The Mariachi’s were out and doing a wonderful job


    Cove Bar!!!


    I busted out my own Pocky and Kimber jumped on it (She was talking to Patty who had gotten lost in her own neighborhood. Most of our fun was had at her expense)


    Yummy


    We caught MinionLumbo strolling through the stores


    Bye Judimouse


    He was pissed off so he threw his kid over the railing


    We said goodbye to Kimber as well


    It was so cold, we thought that the Animation Building would shield us from the wind (we took a bathroom break on the way)

    MinionLumbo was waiting for us


    The only decent picture I got


    Almandot: "It appears that Cinderella tried to jump a barbed-wire fence"


    Next was Monster’s Inc. were I waited for the longest time since it opened (35 minutes)


    MinionLumbo thought that it was too long for that ride so he left without saying goodbye



    Bright flash!


    It was time to be refueled so we chose Pizza Port (Every coke machine was broken except for one. I tried to get coke but got only carbonated water. I tried at another coke dispenser and got diet coke (WTF?)

    We stayed there for about an hour and a half where we engaged in some interesting conversations (that is what I am going to leave it at)

    And here is Sam straight from Vegas!


    Tiki Room was next


    I believe the CM said, “Buenos Nachos” I was laughing

    We got out of the Tiki Room at 9:15 and it started to trickle rain. It was time to leave

    VillansFan, Maseca, JustJohn, SimplySabrina, and I headed for the exit while Sadako, Sam, YoCharles, cpdisneyprincess, and Almandot went to rock the universe

    Everybody knew that the fireworks were going to be canceled so the park EMPTIED

    The Gods had been angered from all of the celebrating just I got to the tram station


    I boarded the tram and we started to leave. Just as we completed the U-turn, we stopped for 10 minutes for an unknown reason

    Well I had my fair share of Pocky and a wonderful time. It was great to see some familiar faces and some new ones.

    Quote of the day: (The CM that loaded us into our elevator was Caucasian. The person that unloaded us was African American. When the elevator doors opened, we were greeted by a person of a different skin color.)

    MinionLumbo: “How did you do that?”

    (Please please please please please don’t take any offense to this joke. It was all in good fun and wasn’t intended to put anybody down)

    Until next time…

    I wasn't being anti social. There was just no where to sit by everyone else and I was tired of standing.

    Ok, maybe I was a little anti social.
