    Kairamoon's Trip Report (12/2 & 12/4)

    Kairamoon's trip report (12/2 & 12/4)

    Well I met up with Dot for my trip and was finally able to go to the park for my first time to see the Holiday stuff. In fact it was a first for a lot of stuff for me so I was really excited and I think most of the pics turned out well considering the fact that I have a crappy camera lol. The second night was the cast party so be on the lookout :smile:




    It was my first time ever in the Mickey & Friends parking structure :smile:


    And of course we had to get a pic of the infamous billboards


    But Dot being Dot, he was hungry and after pulling me off the tram and past the main entrance gates to Disneyland he walks me across the esplanade and to iHop to get breakfast instead. Ugh!!! (Dot wrote this but knows heather's thinking it)


    And then we went to the park. Since we arrived during the parade there was a huge traffic jam of people on Main Street so I had to grab a pic of the wreaths


    Haunted Mansion Holiday in all of its glory. The line was really long but since I had never been on this ride and had been really looking forward to it, it was cool getting to see all of the additions to the outside queue.


    Dot's fault! Lol we got stuck staring at a blank wall between the ballroom and the attic with absolutely nobody anywhere in any of the cars near us so we took a pic of the mansion wallpaper. I think it needs dusting...


    It's a world of laughter a world of...moose? Yep it's time for the Small World Holiday pics.


    "Wooden soldiers on parade..." Okay so maybe they're not on parade but they look happy :smile:


    Hmmm... Rudolph looks a little green around the gills...well flanks. Hope he makes it to bring me my gifts!


    Reason #1 why I didn't like giving my camera to dot. But hey I was excited to see it for the first time :smile:


    A few of the Christmas decorations


    One of my favorite pics of the bunch because it's so Disney. Not only do you have fantasy mermaids but look at their stockings...yep that's right poor Willa is the only one who isn't one of Ariel's sisters. And you see Dory and Flounder make an appearance. Too bad I'm not sure Santa would like that particular dinner offering though...


    One of the trees, a snowflake, and pretty lights


    More lights...


    And the sign that encompasses all of the Christmas spirit


    Dot hiding in the back of Toontown spying on random people


    And the lovely Matterhorn mountain in all of its glory


    Flower shot! These beauties were in the queue for Alice in Wonderland.


    Is that what I think it is?


    Yep the deadly poison gas filled balloon waiting to drop on an unsuspecting tourist in the Indy queue


    Pull the rope...I dare ya!


    Rollin in the dough but I had to save it for the cast party...


    Small World Holiday at night. Not the clearest shot but still really pretty. I need to get a new camera lol


    For some reason the snow really liked my hair and refused to pop lol. It stayed in there for a while and one little girl actually tried to get it out for me without me noticing. I noticed of course but she was having fun lol


    While waiting for Fantasmic I tried to get a shot of some of the New Orleans Square lighting


    Ahhh! Great pic by Dot (one of his only good ones :tongue We got stopped in Haunted Mansion Holiday again for a long time and we happened to be right near this guy so we took a pic. And surprisingly there was once again nobody on either side of us.


    See what I mean about Dot's handywork? I thought this pic of Oogie Boogie was kind of fun and creepy though so I kept it (gotta keep his ego up :biggrin


    Day Two:


    And here we have the fun Hollywood Pictures Backlot


    With candy canes...


    I wonder what the wiener in a leading role tastes like...


    Stockings...


    And jingle bells (ding fries are done ding fries are done :biggrin Probably the fries at the wiener stand


    A pretty shot of decorations with Monsters Inc. in the background. Too bad it was closed for a refurb while we were there even though it wasn't scheduled.


    But Dot was determined to get me in a picture of the taxi one way or another apparently


    Muahahaha I made Dot go with me to Muppetvision


    And I know he secretly loved it


    Enjoying a margarita break after going through the tortilla factory (another first for me)


    Matt playing with his food. Fairly good Mickey though


    One of the few ride pics that turned out well on my camera (out of 2 Space, 2 Splash, 1 Screamin and 1 ToT)


    Yay for tickets to the Cast Party!


    Free candy canes makes Dot a happy camper :smile: Especially when you could eat them on Indy and nobody cared...
    Dot: like really, they loaded us, we sat down, they said buckle up, and hit the button to send us off. love the cast party


    Very hard to see but we're in the 4th from the left and we were the only riders that were insane enough to ride Splash when it was that cold (and I have a sneaky suspicion the CMs were laughing at us)


    And we were thrilled LOL


    Just goes to show you can't give fuzzy things to Dot and expect him to keep his hands to himself (notice the CM behind us in full uniform LOL)


    There goes Gizelle (who they claim is a princess but of course isn't)


    "Wooden soldiers on parade..." and this time they really are!


    And this loveable snowman knew Dot I'm sure because they made a beeline right for him.


    Bad pic of Ariel with Aurora in the background


    Cute little teddy bear and Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!


    "Down the parade route is reindeer paws, then came good old Sandy Claws" lol to make up my own lyrics


    Surprise shot after the parade, I guess I enjoyed it :P


    My first ride on Dumbo (yeah I know it's a travesty it's taken me 21 years)


    My first ride on the carousel too(okay I have a slow riding curve)


    Woah slow down there Dot I don't think you're getting anywhere by going faster...


    My other favorite pic because I took it while leaning off the horse and got this perfect shot


    Having a little too much fun :biggrin:


    Yep my first time on King Arthur's Carousel and I was able to get Jingles


    And just as we were leaving we noticed there was nobody in front of Mickey


    And finally we have the pic of Denver International Airport after I got my bags and my trip was officially over
