So here it is.
I got home 2-ish hours ago and I'm still beat, but I resized my first set of pics for my trip report just for you guys!! ^_^
We took far too many pictures so rather than bore you I'm cutting it down some
3am my friends Heather and Victoria showed up at my house. We packed up the Xterra and we were off to California
My house 3am (looking more awake then we actually were)
5 1/2 hours later we arrived at the park a little after the 9am opening.
Me, outside the park
Heather and I messing with the camera
Unfortunatly, Victoria was feeling terrible, so Heather took her to first aid and I headed to City Hall to pic up my birthday button. I saw probably 6 dream people that morning and no one gave me anything!! YOAMD can bite me!
The people at first aid played a b-day message from goofy for me which was really cute and nice and then told us to leave V there for a while to rest. Reluctantly we left, not wanting to ditch our friend
Space Mt. w/ early morning clouds
I was uber-excited about virtually no line (i keep going on wicked busy days)
My snazzy b-day button
Inside the mountain. We rode in the front, it was awesome. So dark and non-Rockin' (though I did keep singing Higher Ground everytime we rode it)
We rode buzz and then ate some quick breakfast
We grabbed V who was feeling much better and headed to pirates.
The island (like no one's seen pics of that before )
Excited to have V back and excited for Pirates!!
T'was a fun ride but I ended up getting really wet and messing up my camera (it dried out later though. It survived two months in the snow, that sucker is durable)
New Jack face (best Jack pic I've gotten like ever!!)
Had to pay tributes to one of my other fave pirates
I called DarkwingChuck (who's lame and didn't come with us to celebrate my b-day) and let him hear the music while I got my Fortune from Red Happy to have him back
As we headed for the mansion we caught sight of the beloved Capt. w/ barely a line
Waiting in line to see Jack
He wasn't the best Jack... actually pretty sub-par but cest la vie (more Jack stories later ^_^)
Mansion was closed so we headed back toward the Tiki room
I love this window a lot!! Hadn't seen it before and I want one!!
Unfortunatly V got attacked by my vicious pet crocodile
Ze bird mobile
Ta who ray
Taken w/ flash AFTER the show (so don't yell at me for the flash )
Wait times were wicked short, but we decided to head to DCA mainly for lunch purposes
On the way out we saw Mary Poppins and Bert. They saw my bag covered in pins and Mary said I had a plethera of pins (I love that word) Then Bert saw my birthday button and asked if I wanted to know a secret I said of course and he asked how old I was. I replied twenty one and he said "When I was 21, I was the same age as you" I thanked him for the valuable information and Mary told me not to encourage him ^_^ Got myself a little crush of Bert; he was a cutie :P
Over at DCa we hit up the Tower
Then got lunch and headed to the pier
After working retail for three years V has a habit of straightening up D-land shops...
V & I hit up the carousel after Screaming
Tried to take a mirror shot: you can see my leg :P
Heather waiting for us
As we left
KA-CHOW!!! I got hit by Lightning McQueen...
I guess just an uber-close up of him
I really liked the back of Mickey's shirt
Over at Drawn to Animation... or whatever it's called now
Remy's so cute! Can't wait for Ratatouille
Sadly there were no MTR characters in the parl
I love the lights in the Sorcerer's Workshop!!
There was a really interesting book up there
Waiting for a Prince Charming
The Tower... Quite Terrifying
This Diva had only had 1/2 an hour of sleep in the past 24 hours. She definitely needed rest
Back to Disneyland.
The tarps and those swirls take away from the sign a bit
The Gallery. One of the women working there saw it was my birthday and gave me a set of YOAMD pins with tink on them. Very very cute and one of the nicest things to happen to me on the trip ^_^
This image is so sweet and sad!!
By far one of my favorite things there. Beautiful
And I want one of these too
We rode Winnie the Pooh
But we hate him so here's a pic of us being mad about him
And then being stupid and Fat like him (no offence intended to Pooh fans)
Over in Fantasyland we hit up Snow and Pinocchio and then caught Mary & Bert on the Carousel
He was so cute!!! (except he lost some points cause he didn't help Mary off her horse)
We took a spin on Roger because the line was short (FYI my tounge is yellow cause I had just had a Dole Whip :-P)
Crazy spin to save Jessica & Roger (one of my favorite rides!!)
The park closed at 8 and we were dead tired so we called it a night around 7. After driving in circles we arrived a Company D (Heather has a purple pass) which was kind of anti-climactic. I got out of there at under $20 (last time i spent over 50)
We checked into the hotel, went to Fridays and then came back and went to sleep....
Coming up: Day 2 (My actual Birthday)
Including: Jedi's, more characters, more ridiculous pictures, and Pirates at Midnight atthe El Capitan ^_^
