This week is Easter Vacation (I'm old fashioned that way) for both my daughter and myself so we decided to head to the park. It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining for a change.
Even though the lines for the tram weren't bad, we decided to walk over to DD and take the monorail to get into the park. On the way over we saw these beautiful flowers.
We walked along the sidewalk to cross over to the DD area
The main reason for taking the monorail is that I wanted to see the lagoon and take some pictures. I noticed the seagulls are back!
Of course I had to get my standard shots with those lovely pink flowering trees
If you look real hard, Mickey is on top of the Matterhorn. This was as far as I could zoom in with my little camera.
Flowers again in the foreground with the Main Street Train Depot behind
Noticed the mayor was out so asked if I could have a photo with him. As he said, any chance for an photo opportunity seeing as he is the mayor
At this point my daughter and I left the park to have lunch at Storytellers. On the way out, near the ticket booths, was this brillant tree in bloom.
We HAD to take the monorial back into Disneyland so I could get more pictures of the lagoon. I set my camera to Burst and these two shots came out pretty good. I had no idea what I would get with that setting.
We walked by the castle and saw the swan was out. This looked to me as if the swan is saying "who the heck are you???"
I liked the reflection of the swans neck in the water on this shot
More brillant flowers in Frontierland. I can't get enough of them
Soon to be Pirates Lair
We decided to take the canoes and noticed this camera man on the end of the dock. In this shot he is shooting a canoe coming in
A raft was coming and going with workers
and for whatever reason the camera man was filming them too
Queenie was out doing her thing
I love this model of Main Street up in the Disney Gallery
The line for Pirates was very long and snaked all over. This is only part of it.
The pirates were in rare form, as always.
Peter was out and about
Next, we headed over to DCA where my daughter wanted a picture with Mr. Incredible.
I snapped this photo literally a second before the crowds surged forward
And daughter wanted a picture with Mater
I wanted a picture of this
I think he (it?) is so cute
and, again, my daughter wanted a picture with Cruella
At this point, much to my disappointment, my batteries ran too low to risk more photos. I went through two sets today. I think something is wrong. We went on to see Billy Hill who was at his peak. They did this routine that is a take off of River Dance that was just a riot. The saloon was packed and really into the show which just makes it all the better. I also rode the monorail again hoping lights would be on in the lagoon. They weren't. And I saw the fireworks. Tink did not fly tonight but it was good, as always, anyway.
On my way out I had one more shot left to take
Good night Walt, and thanks for another great day at your park
