    Bubbadunne's 1st ever trip report: spring break style!

    Hi everbody! I just got back from a two day trip last night and decided to share some of the pics with you guys at mice chat.

    Here is some background info: My college popped for most of the trip, allowing thirty students to go for sixty dollars. I had to camp out over night to get the tickets and ended up going with a group people I had never met before...which turned out to be pretty awesome as I ended up making a bunch of new friends in Disneyland.

    For these pics I used a very quaint and tiny Canon PowerShot A560 AiAF...so please bear with me on the quality of some of these pics.

    Now on to the Part 1 of the trip report!


    Here I am, on the very long (seven hour!) bus ride from NorCal to SoCal



    We watched like seven different movies over the course of the entire trip. Here is a very drunk Bart Simpson in the Simpson's Movie (On the BIG screen! lol)



    We finally hit LA....


    And this song came on during random shuffle. Pretty neat.


    We got to the hotel (Comfort Inn & Suites on Katella, a very long walk) around seven and my group decided to go to Mimi's on Harbor for dinner.



    The entrance! YEAH!!!



    My new buddies at Mimi's.



    After dinner I decided to go to Downtown Disney to get some shopping done. The rest of my group went back to go hottubbing at the hotel.

    I then bought some trinkets for my family and girlfriend, walked the mile and a half back to the hotel and slept until the morning.

    Next up: First day at the parks!

    Cool. I always like seeing first trip reports. It's nice to get different perspectives.

    Part 2


    Getting ready in the morning.


    Smoggy morning, view from the room.


    Our bus driver made a wrong turn and tried to get to Mickey and Friends from the Harbor entrance.



    So it was off to the Highway for us...





    And into Mickey and Friends/Pinocchio lot.



    Jules and Kirstin on the tram. They are so cute together! Kirstin was a HUGE Disneyholic. She was our drive and inspiration to get things done during the busy break. I should probably tell her about this site. :P



    Ugh...thats all I can say...but it didn't matter! We were almost there!



    Most of the group waiting.



    Kirstin finally getting in with a huge smile on her face.

    Here we go!






    (couldn't help but think of youtube when i saw this guy come out)



    Castle shot while walking



    Matterhorn in the morning.


    The wait board at approx. ten in the morning. It lied to us. (more on this as we head to splash)


    walking...LOOK AT THE CROWDS :O







    Part of the line for pirates...it switchbacked all the way back to the raft entrance.



    Mansion

    And the first ride of the day...SPLASH!




    Stay tuned for part 3!

    Awesome so far!! So you did park out for the night and managed to get tickets!! Totally cool! Going to Disneyland with people you've never met before and making new friends in the process is a MiceChat thing!

    Ahhh! You left me hanging at my favorite ride : Splash! I'm also bummed when trip reports don't include that ride. Looking forward to part three.

    Part 3

    This is when we realized not to trust the wait board. Instead of Splash being a fifteen minute wait...it was an hour long! Oh, well...we got in line anyway.
    Here are a few pics from the queu (sp?)










    This CM does his best to wave people into Pooh. (Drity,lol)










    I love the themeimg on the cast doors.







    As we got closer to boarding I put my camera away as I didn't want it to get wet. Speaking of getting wet, I sat in the front of the log and got soaked! It looked like I had jumped into a pool with all of my clothes on. (Sorry, no pics :P)



    After Splash we headed to mansion which had a twenty minute wait.


    Piggy


    I call this shot "Battle of the Wienes"







    Unfortunately, as soon as we got to the front doors...the ride 101'd .

    So there went twenty minutes down the toilet...oh well. I got some cool pics out of it.

    Up next in part 4, Pirates, lunch, and a mission to outer space!

    Great trip report! I really like the pictures from Splash because I honestly don't think I have done that ride without a FastPass since '92 (I didn't go back to Disneyland again until '03). So it's great to see pictures of the que.

    Part 4



    On pirates I decided to try out my camera in a low light setting. I got grainy but ok results. (P.S. I took no flash pictures)








    The Blue Bayou


























    The group split up for lunch, Kirstin, Julie, Divech and I had the Gumbo! We then got nine o'clock fastpasses for Indy and headed over to Space. The wait was only an hour long for it being later in the day .
















    Bats day came early this year. (There were actually alot of people dressed up like this. Pretty cool.) Look at Divesh posing cause the camera's near him :P.





    Here's the Pic.

    Next up...DCA, the awesomeness of single rider, and Bubbadunne goes off on his own to take some atmosphere pics.
