    Veni, Vidi, Vici...and other stuff. A Trip Report!

    So, as some may remember, Hubster and I mapped out a strategy to see Nemo on the 16th. We were going to wake early, get to Disneyland before opening and stand ready for rope drop...
    ...well, we did get there early. Sort of...

    It was already after 7:30 when we parked in Mickey & Friends. We were directed to Chip and Dale...first time that's ever happened.
    The sun was like a beacon...drawing us to the Park.


    Did I say the sun was like a beacon? I meant, the line of people waiting to get through the front gate was like a beacon.


    By this time, it was already 8. So much for rope drop...


    Hubster and I split up. He went 'round the left side of Matterhorn, I took the right. But I knew there would be NO WAY I would be closer to the end of the line. Sure enough...


    But look at all the pretty umbrellas! Just then, I heard a rumbling...


    I think someone was waving. Waving at all the poor fools in the long Nemo line...Like Hubster. Who was back by the sitting area by the motor boat lagoon.
    Just then, I heard another rumbling...


    I picked up the yogurt parfait and the fruit plate. Once back in line, Hubster pointed out something I hadn't picked up. Forks. So off he went.
    I enjoyed the view from line...


    Things moved well. We passed the time by eating...grabbing fast passes...chatting with our fellow line-mates...and I took a few pictures.


    Looks like I wasn't the only one who spotted the duck...


    It took a little over 2 hours, but finally, it was our turn.
    Our boat...


    Our skipper...not his best side...


    The view from my porthole was...barnacle-y...


    I spotted a kid who must have fallen into the lagoon. Poor kid...


    The fish tried to hide, but I was quick on the shutter...


    I tried to ask how I could go on the scuba diving ride, but the skipper ignored me...


    I wonder if the oysters and pearls in DTD are this big...


    None of my pictures during the "dark ride" portion of Nemo were any good. I suppose if you like blurry, blackish rectangles they were good, but...
    So, that was Nemo. Hubster and I were a bit..."meh"...about the ride. Oh, well. At least now we can say we've ridden it. That's gotta mean something, right?
    Maybe not. But I took one more picture...


    Now it was time to use our FPs! Buzz here we come!
    I studied the planetary map, so that I knew where I was going...


    When I win, I'm going here...


    And win, I did! I won't post Hubster's score. Wouldn't want to embarrass him. (Though, to be fair, which I often am not, his gun was broken).


    Then it was time to go on the Wildest Ride in the Wilderness! YeeHaw!


    The girl in front of us was having a bad hair day.
    Down in front!!!


    Once we were saved from the runaway train, we decided to put our lives in danger again and go to the Pirates Lair.


    Actually, it looks more dangerous in NOS.
    FORE!


    The waterfowl were out...enjoying a gentle spritz from the waterwheel.


    The crane was not impressed by the duck ballet...


    Pirate's Lair was good for a laugh or two. Though the boarded up fort made us sad.
    And then I spotted some treasure!


    But this guy kept giving me a hard time, so we left...


    It was hot and we were dusty. Until a tropical breeze welcomed us...


    So, that's where the breeze was coming from...


    Which god or goddess makes the Dole Whips? I dunno. But we were blessed with one. And it was a delicious way to end the day. Mmmmmm...

    Veni, Vidi, Vici?

    Personally, Vidi, Vici, Veni does a lot more for me.

    Wonderful shots! I was kind of hoping you and hubby would try one person taking the monorail, and another going via main street, but it looks like you did fine anyway. Great photographs, as always...
