    Rather Late May 6th Pictures

    So - my co-workers got sick of me on May 6th and dumped me out of the van at the drop off area (something new for me - hey there isn't much that is new any more...i get excited about the little things....). AP in hand and armed w/ my camera I made my way to my destresser and home away from home.

    I spent most the day just people watching and playing w/ the settings on my camera. I will spare you all the Castle shots I took (I can't seem to take enough) but I remember there was a thread about this some time back....



    I wandered through the Castle gates and was met with the sight of an old friend:




    This guy was pretty darn funny and a good sport through the whole thing.


    I have a bit of a soft spot for the Sword in the Stone Ceremony. When I was about six or seven my grandpa and I were waiting for the rest of the family to get back from somewhere and he took me over to watch the Ceremony and I was the lucky kid to be picked. I was "Queen of the Morning" complete with three trumpeters - as they did it in those days. And my Grandpa was the only one to see the whole thing. The rest of the family showed up right as it was all finishing. So, when I see a lil kid experance that magic it makes me tear up....and miss my Grandpa.

    I found myself over at this quiet spot for a while:




    Black and White is so Artsy....I miss my studio....

    I was headed back toward Adventureland when I was stopped by the most incredible smell....




    Soo Prettyful!

    Through the Hub I took some normal pictures from new angles for me





    I headed toward DCA - donno why....
    On my way over my Mom happened to call and when I told her where I was she was able to give my the location code for the brick we got for my Grandparents last summer. It was laid right after my Grandmother died...and I hadn't seen it yet. With the right number and some help from mom on the phone I finally found it!


    We had no idea when their first DL trip was, so we put their wedding date. These are the people responsible for my deep love of this place....

    After wandering for a while in DCA I eventually made it into my favorite place there - the Animation Building. It had been a while since I'd been in the Sorcerer's Workshop area...so I took a stroll. I'd never realized how pretty the lighting is in there...








    Never noticed this little piece of detail before either...

    As I was heading into the Beast's Library I turned around toward the entrance of the Workshop and discovered something else I'd never noticed:


    Walt looking over the whole thing...

    I took the character quiz in the Library just for the heck of it....I'm still Lady, from Lady and the Tramp


    On the floor in the main room during the Peter Pan Sequence. I just like the way it turned out....

    After this I decided to run from the Peppy Teenaged Crowd making it's way through Sunshine Plaza back to Disneyland...

    I got a pretty yummy sandwich from the Tomorrowland Terrace but the whole area was swarming w/ familys and Jedi Wanna Be's so I took my lunch and went and set in the shade by the front of the Castle and just people watched. While sitting there a Dream Team Member approached me (sans white vest) and asked if I'd lost someone. I said no and he asked why I was at the park today - I said "It's my Happy Spot" He laughed and said, well then you need one of these:


    The first thing I've gotten from a Dream Team Member......

    More pictures around the Castle....


    As much as I dislike the Evil Dragon Swans....this made for a purdy picture....


    I love Roses


    Baby Duck!!




    Yup - another Rose...


    This is "my" horse.... I've only NOT ridden it twice.... when it was gone getting golden and ungolden...

    I figured I was by myself...so I could do WHATEVER I wanted. I was in a bit of a sentimental mood and decided to go do Small World - that was the ride my Grandma and I always did together....


    Did these CM's do something bad? I saw them go through twice...


    Pretty Flowers on the way in....


    It's all gross looking.....bad show







    Had time for one more ride....so I was off to Adventureland...

    Stop for pic along the way...


    And then on to Indy! My other favorite ride!







    I had just enough time to make it back to the drop off area to meet my co-workers. Once there I found out that two of them had gone to DtD to watch a movie. I directed my other co-worker to the DtD parking so they wouldn't have to walk the whole way. Once there and my co-workers got in the van they presented me with these:


    Yay!!! I've been wanting Dream Ears! They were greeted by the Dream Team on their way to the DtD Parking Lot!

    So ends a great day of non-stress! Yay! Below is the dash board of our van - we call it "The Naomi Shrine"


    The End!!

    What a relaxing trip report!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Danke. I wish I had been at Dland on my birthday. Instead I played a show in Hollywood and had my laptop stolen afterwards.
