    I really enjoy the pictures of the close up stuff, because I don't know remember seeing half of it. I have to remember to slow down and pay attention next time. Excellent pictures!!

    Re: 3/30- The Day of a Million Breakdowns

    Okkay, I said it already, but thanks so much everyone

    Here comes part 2:

    Now, I left you all off with the idea of us going on Pirates.
    And as Disneyphenom so elequently put it (later in the day) in true Disney ride style:

    It was just an ordinary day at Disneyland until THINGS WENT HORRIBLY WRONG!! dun dun dun!!!

    Well not horribly, I'm being over-dramatic

    The line was relatively short.
    We unsuspectingly dorked around in line




    Horse_bunny was proud of her Ducks... I was flashing peace signs


    Okkay, enough Disneyphenom... we have enough "arm-length" shots


    Selanne face.... (*realizes no one's going to get this random hockey reference*)


    So it was on to the ride where I found a nifty setting on my camera that allowed Night Vision. It gave everything a "Blair Witch"-y feel, but it made for some of the best (green tinted) pirates pics I've ever taken








    So we got to the auction scene and suddenly I notice a bunch of boats backed up in front of us. Now this is weird cause the furthest I've ever been backed up is like the burning city scene. We sat around for a while as CMs came on the PA telling us they'd have us up and running soon
    So we took more pictures














    We were kind of excited actually. I've been going to Disneyland since I was 3 years old and I've never ever been walked off a ride


    Suddenly they turned off the audio in the ride. Scariest moment ever.
    These are our scared face


    To watch the AA's moving but not speaking. Then we (being the nerds we are) started yelling out the non-existant dialogue "We Wants the Red Head" "Six, who makes it six" etc. Far funnier than it should have been
    Eventually they shut off the AA's and nothing moved except the chasing pirates. It was eerily silent.




    After a while they started evacuating boats. Since we were far from the shore, they let our boats float through to the bridge before the fire scene
    I gave up and started using my flash (cause the magic was gone the second they started moving but not talking)














    Excitement as we made our way up stairs and into backstage


    I was amazed at how quickly they got security over there to make sure the guests didn't take pics and hurried back on stage.
    I didn't take this picture *ruins the magic* :P


    For all our trouble, we got a magical fastpass, good for everything except Nemo


    After the whole ordeal, we hurried to Cafe Orleans and got some well deserved lunch
    Some random shots while we waited








    One picture taker


    The other picture taker (dude, I can't take normal pictures :P)


    Disneyphenom did not participate in the picture taking and looks angry for it... maybe cause his camera's not as cool as horse_bunny's and mine


    Horse_bunny tried to cheer him up


    And we were all sadden to only be able to see the Bootstrappers from afar


    But then our food came so everyone was happy
    Some of the best fries ever!!


    Horse_bunny had a Monte Cristo


    While Disneyphenom and I both tried the Ratatouille


    And so ends part 2 on the happy note of food.
    Coming up!!!!: The Tiki Room, More Characters & Musical Chairs
    (should have it up by tomorrow afternoon ^_^)

    Re: 3/30- The Day of a Million Breakdowns

    I realized yesterday, as I started putting together the intro photo montage for the podcast, that still photos of Pirates when broken...

    Well, they don't really look like much. I mean, it's cool because they're the best and clearest shots we've been able to get of the attraction. The work lights are on, but they're not overly bright and just give things that moonlit appearance. But nothing drastic. Even when the lights are on, it's still nighttime in there.

    It just looks like some normal, albeit good, photographs.

    Oh, but video. That's a totally different story. And me doing the video recording of the day's events makes up for not participating in all the still photography.
