    MollyTrolly's CHOC Walk in the Park 2007 [photo heavy]

    So I was planning on working on this Sunday night, but due to the fire, I was a bit delayed.

    Sunday morning I woke at 4am, to make the trek from Santa Clarita to Disneyland for the CHOC Walk.

    I left home around 4:35am, and no one was out on Whites Canyon


    I arrived about 5:20am, and made my way to the tram…walk path.


    I loved the opportunity to stop and see these up close.


    I want some of these for my yard


    It was kind of dark and eerie walking the tram path this early.


    Sorry this is so dark








    So I arrived at Security and found the group and eventually we made our way on to Main Street to wait for the festivities to begin. Although the parade lights were on, note that the castle was not lit up yet.


    Mickey, Minnie and Donald came out to start off the festivities


    It was very cool standing on Main Street as the night sky began to fade away


    These two kids were ambassadors for the walk, brother and sister I believe both being treated at CHOC.


    Then who I believe was HauntedMansionMike showed up


    The execs then came out for a few words


    Finally after what felt like hours (because it was), the first group began the walk (we were in the second group).


    And we followed quickly after


    They were reading out team names as we walked by. Micechat was mentioned at least half a dozen times.




    Guarding the castle (see the fairies). I wish he would have moved over a bit...


    that’s it for part 1, be back soon

    Part 2

    We circled the hub and were then led into Adventureland where Jasmine and Aladdin were waiting for us.


    As was Jack


    And we received some early morning music


    We went through Big Thunder Trail into Fantasyland where Princesses were riding the carrousel (it was interesting which characters were available for pics and which were not).








    The backside of the castle

    There is nothing like a PoD float playing the Welcome to our family song to just get into your head at this early hour.


    Alice and the Mad Hatter were the first characters on the route available for photos


    Stitch was out at Innoventions


    judimouse and Ed Grier then had a conversation in front of the marble of gook in TL.


    The sun was just getting ready to come up






    Coming out of tomorrowland, we then headed backstage to get back to the entrance, as Main Street was still filled with people just starting the walk.




    The obligatory backside of Space Mountain shot


    More backstage




    If anyone wonders why we got the DL so early, it was to be on Main Street when it started. Thanks to judimouse and Grumpy4 we did just that. As we were exiting DL, there were people just coming in to start their walk.


    OK that’s it for part 2, up next DCA…

    Part 3 – DCA

    We headed across the esplanade to make our way to DCA




    Once inside Hollywood, I saw my first new character in a LONG time…It was Boo!


    Once again we found ourselves backstage, this time traveling my dream, from ToT Directly into Fliks Fun Fair


    The backside of Tower


    The backside of Drive Em Buggies


    And into Fliks






    Seriously how can you not adore this…


    I just liked this shot


    The walk continued on to paradise pier







    Its not fair to run rides if you cant ride them!


    All was safe and secure at the sunglass shack


    Nothing to see here…move along…


    The obligatory picture with a stuffed animal (stuffed animal provided by judimouse)


    Then we were out the side gate back into DD


    It was way too early for cheerleaders


    And we finally reached the finish line!


    After that I headed home as I needed to take my daughter to a birthday party. Overall it was a great experience, thanks again to judimouse and Grumpy4 for organizing. I will definitely be back next year!

    Love the non-traditional view shots! I usually don't see the park like that unless I'm there myself.

    I remember she thanked him for having Donald on the CHOC welcoming float, and about bringing Walts office back (this was where he became a bit confused I think), I can't remember everything else they talked about, they actually let him chat for a while which was nice.
