Part 6 -- Disneyland Grand Finale
(Aerial Views, Fireworks, and Fantasmic!)
Friday, September 14, 2018

At last, the final day at Disneyland awaits! Our four-day trip to the original Mouse House was coming to a close. And yep, that means I'm finally finishing up the never-ending string of Photo TRs from Anaheim! :lmao:

Early in the planning stages of the trip, we were just going to do three days, intending to skip out on Friday entirely. I'm glad we decided to do four days instead, as it provided more time for photography, and an easier pace on Thursday and Friday. We pretty much got through everything we wanted to, and I got a whole bunch of good pictures -- including a final batch from the last day which I'll be sharing here. Of course, the biggest reason to stay for Friday is that the fireworks (Remember Dreams Come True) and Fantasmic are only performed on Fri-Sat-Sun during the offseason.

So, here's how the day began. While some of the family slept in, I headed over to California Adventure in the morning to do some photography.

20180914_0003.jpg

This was an interesting photo set for me because I treated it like a traditional amusement park set -- lots of action shots of the coasters, aerial views from the Ferris wheel, and so on. Disney parks are very much about atmosphere and theming, but it was fun to do more of my typical style of photography too.

I rode a few things -- including the Incredicoaster and the swinging side of the Pixar wheel -- and then we headed over to Disneyland for lunch at Rancho Del Zocalo. They were all out of their special Halloween Horchata, and that was not the first time on this trip that I'd been to a restaurant that was out of the holiday specialty item. That was a bit disappointing.

After lunch, we checked out a few attractions we'd missed on the first few days -- Tom Sawyer Island, Tarzan's Treehouse -- and then did re-rides on Big Thunder, Haunted Mansion, and Pirates. In the late afternoon, we made one final trip over to California Adventure for a ride on the Monsters After Dark version of Guardians, and one final spin on the incredible Incredicoaster. Oh, and while some of the family went shopping, I hopped on the Red Car Trolley for absolutely no apparent reason. It's a good time-killer if you've got nothing else to do!

That was about it for rides, as we headed back to an increasingly-crowded Disneyland for the fireworks and Fantasmic. We set up just off the hub on the right side, with a partially tree-obstructed view of the castle, but a perfect view of the fireworks. I had some fun setting up my mini-tripod on a fire hydrant, which actually ended up working out pretty nicely! Sometimes you have to work with the tools you've got, and photography is all about improvising. As soon as the fireworks ended, we headed over to the second showing of Fantasmic, for which we'd already acquired Fast Passes. I would charitably describe the process of entering the Fantasmic viewing area as a horrifying mess of a stampede, and didn't particularly enjoy that part of the experience. It all worked out -- I ended up second row, a bit right of center, with a clear view of all the action. I've seen the Disney World version, but this one was different enough to keep my interest!

Once Fantasmic was over, so was our time at Disneyland. I'm not sure when my return to Disneyland will be -- it's probably more likely I'll be back at Disney World in the coming few years -- but it was great to experience it for the first time with my family, and to have enough time to do just about everything we wanted to do.

Finally, that wraps up this segment of the report. Things get a little more varied from here on out!

But let's not forget about the pictures...

Disneyland -- The Grand Finale -- Pictures!
20180914_0005.jpg
Starting my last morning at California Adventure over at Pixar Pier. This is a view I could get used to.
20180914_0007.jpg
Let's discuss the Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats. These may have been more popular than the Dole Whip over at Disneyland. Every time I walked by the place, the line was 20-40 people long!
20180914_0008.jpg
How do you avoid the waits? Easy -- get there at 9:30 in the morning when there's literally nobody else in line! It's never too early for lemon-flavored soft serve!
20180914_0010.jpg
The army men were out and about.
20180914_0012.jpg
Love this detail on one of the shops. It's like an old-school Helter Skelter, and I like to think of Knoebels' sky slide.
20180914_0014.jpg
Oh, and there's a coaster over here too. Goofy's got his own pilot's school.
20180914_0016.jpg
I have some questions about his operating license...
20180914_0018.jpg
Control panel shot for the nerds!
20180914_0020.jpg
Only at Hersheypark have I seen a mouse operated with this kind of efficiency. Sure, it's not a great ride, but I'll at least give them credit for running it well!
20180914_0022.jpg
Lesson 2: don't do what he's doing.
20180914_0026.jpg
Fun with framing devices.
20180914_0028.jpg
Fun with laterals!
20180914_0030.jpg
Everybody at TPR can relate to the wonderful experience of the last little drop on a mouse...
20180914_0032.jpg
...and the even more wonderful experience of hitting the brake run.
20180914_0036.jpg
This early in the morning, the swings were only running at half capacity.
20180914_0038.jpg
The Mickey figure at the top is conducting quite the symphony.
20180914_0040.jpg
The swings and the Golden Zephyr look pretty close from a certain angle.
20180914_0042.jpg
Fun fact: the swings might have been my grandmother's favorite ride at Disneyland.
20180914_0043.jpg
Also, there's a tornado painted on the ride, so it's got a claim for being one of my favorites too!
20180914_0045.jpg
Love the Coco decorations!
20180914_0046.jpg
And now, a closer look at the Incredicoaster.
20180914_0048.jpg
A very conveniently-placed palm tree.
20180914_0050.jpg
Inversion!
20180914_0073.jpg
Heading into a big corner.
20180914_0075.jpg
Two-train shot!
20180914_0090.jpg
Tilted track.
20180914_0092.jpg
Incredi-excitement.
20180914_0107.jpg
Rounding the lower curve at the west end of the coaster.
20180914_0109.jpg
The red trains look great against the white structure.
20180914_0112.jpg
Airtime!
20180914_0114.jpg
They're really nice looking trains, but I just wish the design was a bit more open.
20180914_0122.jpg
Uphill from here.
20180914_0180.jpg
Underneath the wheel.
20180914_0202.jpg
So, speaking of the wheel...
20180914_0204.jpg
Time to pal-a-round!
20180914_0206.jpg
I rode the non-swinging side on Thursday, and the swinging side on Friday. These pictures are a mix from both days.
20180914_0208.jpg
I also rode the swinging wheel at Deno's in Coney Island, so I knew what to expect going in.
20180914_0211.jpg
Take your seat in one of the many-colorful cabins.
20180914_0214.jpg
A look up at the wheel.
20180914_0216.jpg
A look down at the wheel's reflection in the lagoon.
20180914_0235.jpg
Another control panel picture!
20180914_0239.jpg
Heading up.
20180914_0241.jpg
My one complaint -- and it's a big one -- the cages are /very/ unfriendly to photography. I did the best I could, mainly with the zoom lens, which helped me to focus past the metal bars.
20180914_0244.jpg
First, a view west at the Paradise Pier hotel. Guest appearance by the Incredicoaster.
20180914_0246.jpg
Goofy's still teaching his sky school.
20180914_0248.jpg
The Zephyr keeps spinning around.
20180914_0249.jpg
A straight-on shot of the Zephyr in action.
20180914_0250.jpg
A wide view over the Little Mermaid dark ride, with some of Disneyland's mountains spiking up above the trees.
20180914_0251.jpg
King Triton below the trees and mountains.
20180914_0255.jpg
Starting with Grizzly Peak, which looks great from any angle.
20180914_0256.jpg
From up above, it's backed by some of the tourist hotels in the distance.
20180914_0257.jpg
Big Thunder Mountain, behind the Grand Californian, with regular buildings behind it. You get some interesting perspectives from up high -- it completely shatters the forced perspective you get from ground level!
20180914_0259.jpg
The new Star Wars rock work, dwarfed by the real mountains in the background.
20180914_0260.jpg
A closer view of the Star Wars stuff.
20180914_0262.jpg
The big parking garage, with the prominent western peaks of the San Gabriel Mountains behind it.
20180914_0263.jpg
That one is Mount Wilson, which has an observatory up top, and is a bit of a Los Angeles area landmark.
20180914_0265.jpg
Looking down at the Matterhorn.
20180914_0266.jpg
Mountains: real and imaginary. The one in the background is Mount San Antonio, aka Mount Baldy.
20180914_0268.jpg
This isn't the first time Mount Baldy has appeared in this trip report, and it won't be the last.
20180914_0270.jpg
Space Mountain!
20180914_0272.jpg
Another mountainous comparison. I could do this all day.
20180914_0281.jpg
But, I'll move on, with some views of California Adventure.
20180914_0282.jpg
The Guardians tower is quite a piece of work.
20180914_0284.jpg
The wharf and the bridge to Pixar Pier.
20180914_0285.jpg
The Lamplight Lounge, with Cars Land behind it.
20180914_0287.jpg
It's so weird to break the illusion of the whole Cars Land mountain range from this high up.
20180914_0288.jpg
The Cadillac Range in all its tail-finned glory.
20180914_0289.jpg
Here's one with Angel Stadium back behind Cars Land.
20180914_0292.jpg
Tail fins and construction cranes.
20180914_0295.jpg
The convention center, a big roller coaster, and a carousel under construction.
20180914_0303.jpg
Incredicoaster down below.
20180914_0305.jpg
Another two-train shot. Not hard to do, with Disney's excellent operations.
20180914_0311.jpg
A really odd side view of the Incredicoaster loop!
20180914_0315.jpg
Incredicoaster again!
20180914_0320.jpg
One more Incredicoaster shot.
20180914_0330.jpg
Looking down at the stage they had set up for their cast member party on Thursday night.
20180914_0360.jpg
The shadow of the wheel.
20180914_0370.jpg
World of Color, all broken and under repair.
20180914_0376.jpg
Nozzles and pipes and wires everywhere.
20180914_0380.jpg
Lots of work left to do.
20180914_0390.jpg
Alright, that ends this excellent update on World of Color's dry spell. Also, that ends the aerial photographs.
20180914_0402.jpg
One last walk through Cars Land!
20180914_0403.jpg
The Halloween decorations are so great!
20180914_0404.jpg
The former Bug's Land is behind this gate, now being converted into a Marvel-themed area.
20180914_0406.jpg
This sign is soon to be a thing of the past.

Disneyland -- The Grand Finale -- More Pictures!
20180914_0432.jpg
The main plaza had a bunch of these artistic flags depicting rides at Disneyland. Here's one for Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy.
20180914_0433.jpg
And one for the Haunted Mansion.
20180914_0436.jpg
Back for another swing through Disneyland.
20180914_0438.jpg
"Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy."
20180914_0439.jpg
Looks like we're starting things off with the Dapper Dans.
20180914_0441.jpg
Or is this version the Cadaver Dans?
20180914_0445.jpg
Snap those fingers.
20180914_0447.jpg
I think they're getting ready to attack.
20180914_0448.jpg
False alarm.
20180914_0451.jpg
No question, these guy have a good time.
20180914_0455.jpg
Random history thing! It's a petrified tree!
20180914_0456.jpg
It's an actual piece of a petrified tree from Colorado. Pretty cool.
20180914_0460.jpg
I guess the Swiss Family Robinson just weren't selling the tickets, so Tarzan it is.
20180914_0462.jpg
It's pretty similar to the treehouse in Florida, but the views from up top are a little more open.
20180914_0463.jpg
Hanging lanterns in the treehouse.
20180914_0466.jpg
A bell and a book.
20180914_0468.jpg
A very angry cat. It growls at you just to make sure you're aware it's angry.
20180914_0469.jpg
I feel like we're intruding on someone's home.
20180914_0473.jpg
The view west from the top of the treehouse.
20180914_0474.jpg
I spy a Haunted Mansion...
20180914_0476.jpg
...and a Splash Mountain.
20180914_0478.jpg
The view north!
20180914_0482.jpg
More Star Wars stuff under construction.
20180914_0483.jpg
Work was ongoing...
20180914_0484.jpg
Big Thunder Mountain rises above the trees.
20180914_0486.jpg
A train crests the lift.
20180914_0489.jpg
So, how about one more ride on Big Thunder?
20180914_0490.jpg
Yep, good idea, as always.
20180914_0492.jpg
Train #1 looks like it's about to derail.
20180914_0494.jpg
I. B. Hearty.
20180914_0496.jpg
Piano Player Wanted: Must Play Good.
Bartender Wanted: Must Shoot Good.
I wonder which is their higher priority?
20180914_0500.jpg
More buildings in this little mining town.
20180914_0502.jpg
Rainbow Ridge is just a bit over that-a-way.
20180914_0510.jpg
First, we'll climb this hill over here.
20180914_0512.jpg
I think we've found the top.
20180914_0514.jpg
We've got tortoises.
20180914_0516.jpg
We've got snakes!
20180914_0520.jpg
And we've got more construction photos because this photo set just can't get away from them.
20180914_0522.jpg
This is gonna be spectacular when it's done.
20180914_0524.jpg
Explosives, you say?
20180914_0530.jpg
The Columbia, all docked up.
20180914_0531.jpg
The Mark Twain, giving rides around the Rivers of America.
20180914_0532.jpg
That's one ride we didn't get on, but we got so many views from other rides in the area that it wasn't a huge deal.
20180914_0536.jpg
It's a nice-looking boat, and only nicer when used in the show at the end of the day.
20180914_0540.jpg
The pilot house on the Mark Twain.
20180914_0542.jpg
Paddlewheel Excursions.
20180914_0544.jpg
Boat, train, spaceport!
20180914_0546.jpg
Oh boy, more construction photos.
20180914_0548.jpg
Hey, got a construction worker in this one!
20180914_0550.jpg
The main stage for Fantasmic, which looks like a whole lot of nothing during the day.
20180914_0554.jpg
Hopping across the water to Lafitte's Tavern on Tom Sawyer Island.
20180914_0556.jpg
The view back the other way to New Orleans Square.
20180914_0558.jpg
On the island, there's a little tree house.
20180914_0560.jpg
Also, a suspension bridge!
20180914_0562.jpg
There are pathways that go all around the island.
20180914_0563.jpg
Space Mountain behind the Mark Twain dock.
20180914_0564.jpg
A few smaller boats along the edge of the island.
20180914_0566.jpg
Meanwhile, the train passes around the other side of the river.
20180914_0570.jpg
Hoop-Dee-Doo, here's Fort Wilderness, up on a hilltop on the island.
20180914_0572.jpg
An old lantern. It's all about the little details at Disneyland.
20180914_0574.jpg
The top of the hill also has lots of pirate ship overlooks and play areas.
20180914_0576.jpg
Here's one spot with a good view of the river.
20180914_0578.jpg
A viewfinder I don't need.
20180914_0580.jpg
Meanwhile, the Mark Twain passes on by.
20180914_0582.jpg
It's a different view from up here.
20180914_0586.jpg
Oh, and one other view from Tom Sawyer Island -- the Splash Mountain drop tunnel!
20180914_0590.jpg
Admittedly, harsh contrast and tough focusing made these pictures difficult. Did the best I could.
20180914_0592.jpg
A wall of water.
20180914_0593.jpg
This is why they call it Splash Mountain.
20180914_0594.jpg
It's not "moderately wet" mountain. You might get soaked.
20180914_0596.jpg
Might as well enjoy it!
20180914_0644.jpg
Alright, scene change. One final trip to California Adventure for the special Halloween version of Guardians.
20180914_0645.jpg
Yep, all the creatures were on the loose, and they played it for laughs. It was a lot of fun, and I love the way they mess with the queue!
20180914_0646.jpg
Well, the Hollywood Tower Hotel this ain't.
20180914_0647.jpg
But I have no complaints -- I'm glad the two coasts have different versions of this great attraction.

Disneyland -- The Actual, Satisfactual Grand Finale! For Real!
20180914_0698.jpg
So, just two items of business left to attend to. First up -- fireworks.

See the fire hydrant at the bottom right of this picture? That would be my tripod stand for the fireworks, and it worked out pretty well. Oh, and the umbrella at the left side of the picture? We moved it out of the way. Don't tell anybody!
20180914_0700.jpg
It's going to be hard to caption a whole bunch of fireworks photos, so I'll keep it pretty simple and just enjoy the show.
20180914_0702.jpg
Explosions are awesome.
20180914_0703.jpg
This is probably my favorite photo of the batch -- such a nice mix of colors, and a long-exposure Tinkerbell trail to cap it all off.
20180914_0704.jpg
More fireworks.
20180914_0705.jpg
Fireworks and spotlights.
20180914_0706.jpg
Red and yellow.
20180914_0707.jpg
Fire!
20180914_0709.jpg
Very green.
20180914_0711.jpg
Very pink.
20180914_0713.jpg
X marks the spot.
20180914_0714.jpg
Fireworks, continued.
20180914_0715.jpg
Lasers!
20180914_0716.jpg
Oh, and the weird green things at the bottom of the pictures? Those were crowd control cast members waving their lighted batons. Nothing I could do to get them out of the frame.
20180914_0717.jpg
One more Tinkerbell trail.
20180914_0718.jpg
A huge finale! That was a really good fireworks show, and I love how it was themed to the various attractions at Disneyland.
20180914_0720.jpg
Hanging out by the Rivers of America, waiting for Fantasmic to begin. This was my spot to see the show, and I did this one long-exposure picture of the stage area before it started.
20180914_0724.jpg
The show has started!
20180914_0727.jpg
Lots of lights and water features.
20180914_0736.jpg
A big scene with the Columbia, which has been turned into a pirate ship.
20180914_0738.jpg
Daring acrobatics.
20180914_0740.jpg
Fights on the main deck.
20180914_0744.jpg
Bright blue and green lights.
20180914_0746.jpg
The skull and crossbones tells the story!
20180914_0752.jpg
Photography during Fantasmic is not easy, but if you catch the spotlights and the fog just right, you can get some cool effects.
20180914_0758.jpg
A romantic scene.
20180914_0762.jpg
First, we dance.
20180914_0774.jpg
Then, we light absolutely everything on fire.
20180914_0777.jpg
The dragon was awesome.
20180914_0792.jpg
The big finale with all the Disney characters on the Mark Twain.
20180914_0794.jpg
The monochromatic "Steamboat Willie" Mickey is a nice touch.
20180914_0796.jpg
More fun with spotlights.
20180914_0802.jpg
Everyone waves things around in the air.
20180914_0807.jpg
We have chipmunks!

Fantastic photos! There have been a ton of Disney reports lately. Probably because their one of the few parks open. :lol:

How did you get shots without the bars on the Pixar Pal Around/Mickey's Fun Wheel or whatever they call it? I remember them being very obtrusive and difficult to fit a zoom lens through for photos.

These are remarkable photos. Even the action shots are clear. Well done.

This really reminds me, I need to get on that Pal-A-Round ferris wheel next visit!
Didn't do it last visit (2016), and those shots you took from it, are awesome!

Also, that shot of the wheel reflected in the water, is a really cool one. :mickey:

I will definitely be revisiting this report a couple times a year. Love all of the photos and notes. Thanks Andy!

Big lens, zoomed all the way to 250mm, and just trying to hold the center of the lens at the holes in the bars as much as that was possible. Not easy, especially while moving!

Whole lot of 1/1000 stuff. Thanks!

Awesome stuff Zach, and your 2018 visit to Disneyland was something I referenced before my trip.

Thanks Bert!

If time permits, I'm hoping to continue this trip report with other stuff I did in California (including the zoos/parks in San Diego) but we'll see how things go with prepping for my 2019 travel plans.
