    Nephy's First Attempt at an April 1st Trip Report

    Hullo all! I came to visit Disneyland March 30-April 2. As I was flying in I saw something very familiar out the window-



    Disneyland from the sky!

    I was lucky enough to be able to journey to sunny South California to join in on the giant meet on April 1st. WOW- what a crowd. I guarantee there were people there that I missed getting a chance to meet

    However I did get to meet the fabulous and wonderful Lashbear pair-I was even lucky enough to spend several hours with them on Friday the 30th all by myself. We learned a very valuable lesson that day- that the instructions of "3 bodies to a Doom Buggy" is actually dependant on the size of those bodies. Poor Lashstoat lost 20 pounds being squished in the coner- I learned you CAN sit sideways on the Haunted Mansion and Lashbear discovered that his video of the ride through was dominated by much laughter and hysteria.


    The reason I came to Cali in the first place
    Two of the most amazing, sweet and funny guys I have ever met. I am so happy that I made the trip!

    So-the meet was a madhouse. Many new faces- and some very familiar ones-

    The adorable Fishbulb (who gives the best hugs!) the ever charming O-nut (and his very nice SO whose name I totally forgot- Matt you can kick me for that later)


    The most fabulous Disneyphile and the wonderful Judimouse
    The hub was radiant with spring time-



    ....and also radiant with some very creative outfits-Disney made her buy the shirt that she is wearing. Gosh- I wonder what it looked like before?



    After lunch at Plaza Inn we headed to Pirates- and took over 2 whole boats!

    While in the queue I caught-


    Fishbulb and Penguinsoda (whom I was so happy to finally meet!)
    And a pirate was making off with Dusty's bag before he was run off by brave Micechatters-



    It was a wonderful day-can't wait to do it again. I do have one very good reason to come back- sooner rather than later!



    Yup- the Subs. On Friday I saw one going in and out of the caverns. Squeee!!



    I had a wonderful time!

    Special Thanks to:
    Disneyphile and Frodo Potter for being wonderful friends and great hosts
    Wolfy999 for allowing me to meet her adorable kitties
    Lashbear and Lashstoat for sharing their US vacation with me
    DisneyFanaticBoy for hauling down from Canada to hang with us- it was very nice to meet you
    and the LoT crew for the most laughter I have ever had in one day at Disneyland

    -and to everyone else! It was so great to see old friends, make new ones and just have an incredible time.

    Great aerial pics! and also that parking lot and strawberry field at the bottom of the screen? THAT is where they are going to put in the 3rd park! Gives a person an idea of how big it will be and where it will be in location to DL and DCA...

    Way cool!

    Loved actually chatting with you a bit and having you share in our "kittie" household!

    When do we get to have the honor of your presence again?

    Loved the aerial shots!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Sooner than you may think My company offered a settlement for some class action suit- as long as that does not snag up I plan to be there end of September. Probably just a weekend again- but I can't wait!!!

    Then we will be back again early next year when Davis and I come out.

    It was so good meeting you-I have several warm fuzzy kittie pictures from that visit! (I am so stealing Cow and Oakley next time....)

    More pic fun-ness-



    That is NNL isn't it (I get so bad with names) and Wolfy999

    and more Wolfy family goodness-


    ...and I found this weird glitch on the screen in the Animation Studio building-


    Bad show Hmmm......

    Nephy - that's a very nice report and I love the pics - especially, again, the overhaed ones!

    And that's of the better pics of my right shoulder (as I was talking to NNL)

    Glad we had the chance to meet, if only for a moment.

    I was so overwhelmed by the mass of people- and by wanting to chat with them that I failed to get better shots of some people- like you Barry! I am so happy you came!

    Well, I see my back in one of the pictures and my bottom half in another. I don't think I got to meet you, though. Or did I? There were so many there.

    Those shots from the plane are awesome!! I'm glad I got a chance to meet to you, even if it was for such a short time! There were just soooo many people there! It was fantastic, but it made it hard to spend any time with everyone! You certainly need to come back again when it maybe isen't so crowded!

    Great report!
