Wow, it took longer than I expected to get this Trip Report up. The wife and I headed down to Anaheim for the first time since April '05 and were ever so excited to go back.
I became a little shutterbug down there... (to the point that I wish I had a better camera and a tripod!) I have never taken so many pictures in my life.
So, without further delay, Day 1:
Getting our first glimpse of the Winter-time castle, what can I say I loved it.
A Closer Shot of said beautiful castle.
Hopped over to Mr. Toad before the lines became unreasonable.
Me, TaterMickey, having some fun in the Toad Mobile .
I slacked off on my picture taking, what can I say its been years since we had been here. But, I snapped a beautiful shot of my wife.
I thought this turned out fairly well.
Someone needs to talk to the pilot of the Mark Twain about excessive speed.
Taking a break in front of the best spot in the park.
A clearer shot of Walt and Mickey, this is where I was really desiring a tripod.
My wife and I discovered a Photopass cast member in front of the castle so we got one of our first shots together. This shot was the perfect ending to our first day of the trip.
Today was the day, my wife and I's sixth anniversary. I surprised her back in the hotel the previous night with her wedding ring; it had been damaged several years ago and we couldn't afford to have it repaired, needless to say I don't think I could have given her a better present.
One of the few times I managed to get a descent blind shot of us together... It's so easy to get a less than flattering angle when you cant see the screen!
Getting of the tram, I had to grab this shot of the WoD store.
Then another of my favorite ducks.
Had to convince my wife to do this picture.
Another friendly cast member to take a picture for us, I don't particularly like the Golden Gate in CA, but it does look nice in holiday decor.
The holiday spirit is solidly infused in me at this point.
LIGHTNING AND MATER!!! Need I say more
Holidays in Hollywood.
I love the architecture of this place.
Another CM shot... I love how this came out.
Do as the song say, Kiss the girl.
That's right, Tater "The Ham" Mickey.
I officially have begun to love taking pictures at this point.
Snagged yet another CM to get a picture of us.
Calling it a day, still have to go to dinner, but I couldn't walk by without taking a picture of this pretty thing.
Darn Tram driver, I could swear the speed limit was 14 miles per hour... But that blurry streak is the Tree being decorated.
Daisy 1F!!! that is an insanely long tedious walk, but I discovered my cain resonates quite nicely in the parking structure.
More to come, Day 3, and Back to the most magical place in the world!!!
