    Pratt55 2nd time with the Lilly Belle and Ed Grier

    After our trip last month we thought we would not be returning until after Thanksgiving. Fortunately for us our son was a little bent out of shape after we talked about how neat we though the HMH overlay was. This had been our first year to see it. He wanted to see it too and so checking of schedules began and October 18 and 19th came up as days that we could go. There was a caveat since I had never seen the movie Nightmare Before Christmas Hubby55 said I should see the movie before going on the ride again. So after not much luck in being able to purchase it he finally rented it from netflix and so now I would not longer be 'out of the loop' while seeing the overlay. I booked us a room through Priceline at the Holiday Inn you can see the review here:

    We left home at 3:30 in the morning and due to traffic issues which we expected we arrived at the park just after 9:30 with park opening set for 10:00.

    I love the floral pumpkins


    Hubby55 and son


    The doom buggies had to stop for a moment so of course this meant a wave to us

    Unloading the doom buggies


    After a few more rides at Disneyland it was time to head over to DCA since they would be closing very early. I wanted to get some pictures of the entrance before it is gone.








    Hubby and I under the bridge



    I was not paying attention when all of the sudden I see this giant person



    He was being followed by some squirrels.





    Candy corn churro anyone?



    I wonder why my palm tree does not have any of these growing.



    I think the Incredibles are having marital problems



    Off to ride Tower of Terror





    We then went and saw the Zoetrope in the DCA Animation Building. We were all extremely impressed and stayed watching it for about 10 minutes.



    I have errands to run, so I will be back later to post more pictures. Paradise Pier, riding the Lilly Belle (again), and talking with my friend Ed last Friday.

    Apparently not a zoology major.

    Can't tell the difference between squirrels and chipmunks.

    Even fake ones.

    Gosh, we are a picky bunch

    An innocent trip report turns into a "roast."

    All in good humor, pratt55.

    We abide by that rule except when there is no one ahead or behind us that will be affected. We got stuck for a moment in front of Jack and since it would not be bothering anyone we took a quick pic.

    So back to the pictures. Hanging around DCA near Golden Screams we found some villains









    Some shots of Paradise Pier















    We then decided to head back to Disneyland and take a trip around the park on the train. One of the CMs that was working the night we rode the Lilly Belle last month was there and remembered us. She asked if we wanted to ride the Lilly Belle again as it was going to be coming in shortly and would have space available. Of course we said yes.

    The most expensive carpet at the park
















    I love the inlay.


    and the stained glass


    We picked up some engineers in New Orleans




    The view of Splash Mountain from the train

    I was just giving you a hard time... but it's good to know that there are individuals out there who make effort of respecting the ride experience. Nice photos and thanks again for sharing.

    No Ed Grier?

    Very nice Pratt55, looks like you had a great time. We're going next weekend so now I know what to expect. Love the Lille Belle pics, sounds like a great time.

    No, that's just how Ed Grier works. Says he'll be there and then he's not.
