Photo TR: Disneyland Update along with WCB2010.

Postby Erik Johnson » Sun Apr 04, 2010 4:25 pm

As always I had a great time going out to California for West Coast Bash 2010. Along with those parks I was able to manage some time over at the Disneyland Resort. I will start with this trip report with a few random Disneyland and construction photos since we are all into that....right?
DSCN5599.JPG
Good morning Disneyland.
DSCN5600.JPG
Good morning tiny Space Mountain.
DSCN5601.JPG
Still not enough time!
DSCN5602.JPG
We see you DCA, we will get back to you later.
DSCN5604.JPG
I still have yet to ride the monorail here, I wonder if I should later in the day.
DSCN5603.JPG
It is all about Disneyland this morning.
DSCN5606.JPG
Castle joke #45,623,526.
DSCN5610.JPG
Getting closer now!
DSCN5612.JPG
Castle hungry....nom nom nom.
DSCN5614.JPG
It is always good to get through Fantasyland first thing in the morning. This would be Storybook land.
DSCN5617.JPG
Yay, new ride credit for me.
DSCN5620.JPG
Its bascially a boat ride tour through many different storybook lands.
DSCN5626.JPG
See, this would be our tour guide.
DSCN5625.JPG
This may be Cinderrella's castle. I honestly can't remember for sure.
DSCN5621.JPG
This one is pretty easy though.
DSCN5630.JPG
Pinnocchio's Village.
DSCN5634.JPG
The Little Mermaid is living here...for now.
DSCN5639.JPG
Here is a better look at one of the boats.
DSCN5635.JPG
We have departed our boat to let another group of riders enjoy Storybook Land.
DSCN5622.JPG
You can enjoy Storybook Land via another form of transportation.
DSCN5638.JPG
However, you do not get a real live tour guide this way.
DSCN5637.JPG
It does have a lift hill though.
DSCN5640.JPG
I can never remember what signs Larry needs for the park index, so I took a few.
DSCN5643.JPG
Still the best Fantasyland ride of all time.
DSCN5649.JPG
This would be Florida's Space Mountain's great grandfather, The Matterhorn.
DSCN5650.JPG
Yeah, its a close up of a coaster sticker.
DSCN5651.JPG
Ready to ride?
DSCN5652.JPG
I totally hear someone calling me "nerd" while in the Matterhorn area.
DSCN5655.JPG
It is a rather clunky ride, so getting a good photo can be rather tricky.
DSCN5658.JPG
I like these 15 minute waits for this now.
DSCN5659.JPG
Exclsuive Nemo/Matterhorn photograph.
DSCN5662.JPG
This would be our boat.
DSCN5663.JPG
I. like. fish!
DSCN5665.JPG
Divers.
DSCN5666.JPG
This is when you go under the waterfall.
DSCN5667.JPG
This is the blue fish from Nemo, I can never remember her name.
DSCN5668.JPG
Autotopia!
DSCN5669.JPG
Come on Matt, this version is actually good.
DSCN5670.JPG
This would be the creepy version of Splash Mountain.
DSCN5673.JPG
Speaking of creepy!
DSCN5671.JPG
This would be one angle of the Haunted Mansion.
DSCN5674.JPG
This would be another angle of the Haunted Mansion.
DSCN5675.JPG
For a moment, I felt like I was back in Florida.
DSCN5684.JPG
It is still one of the classic scenes of the ride.
DSCN5697.JPG
Everyone loves the train, right?
DSCN5699.JPG
Well, maybe not Matt.
DSCN5696.JPG
Any ride that almost blasts through Small World can't be too bad.
DSCN5698.JPG
The people here sit weird.
DSCN5700.JPG
Roar! Drunk Dinosaurs!
DSCN5701.JPG
Disneyland, don't forget it.
DSCN5702.JPG
Train Go Down the Hole.
DSCN5703.JPG
Those water shortages can be a killer.
DSCN5704.JPG
So, are you saying you can sail the Mark Twain without having to look where you are going?
DSCN5705.JPG
I always have to get my usual, "Bulldozer in the Lake" photo.
DSCN5708.JPG
I really do miss Roger. He needs to make more movies.
DSCN5709.JPG
At least the dark ride is a lot of fun.
DSCN5710.JPG
Afternoon, Benny.
DSCN5713.JPG
Random duckies.
duckie1223907039.jpg
Random Duckie.
DSCN5715.JPG
Here is a random, just-in-case, attraction sign for Larry.
DSCN5716.JPG
Well, I guess it can make the movie a bit more interesting.
DSCN5717.JPG
I forgot to get a picture of the Dole Whip sign.
DSCN5718.JPG
How about a random trip over to DCA. Guys, I expect this to be gone next time I am here....ok?
DSCN5719.JPG
They just removed the tarp off this one....pretty.
DSCN5441.JPG
Can anyone find the hidden Mickey?
DSCN5445.JPG
The swings are most certainly a big improvement without the large orange.
DSCN5443.JPG
I see it! I see it!
DSCN5447.JPG
Whoopie is gone!
DSCN5446.JPG
The Little Mermaid is moving here next year.
DSCN5450.JPG
Here is the new map, once everything is finished.
DSCN5720.JPG
This must mean we are now in Bug's Land....This can only mean one thing!!!
DSCN5721.JPG
Heimlich's Chew Chew Train!!!! Woot!
DSCN5722.JPG
Seriously, this ride is awesome.
DSCN5723.JPG
Juicy Watermelon....Nom nom nom.
DSCN5724.JPG
Animal Crackers....Nom nom nom.
DSCN5725.JPG
The new path between Tower and Bug's Land rocks.
DSCN5726.JPG
Back on over to Disneyland so we can go visit Michael.
DSCN5727.JPG
The new dancing theater was amazing.
DSCN5452.JPG
We see you tiny Space Mountain.
DSCN5731.JPG
Matterhorn at night is the best.
DSCN5736.JPG
So is the monorail.
DSCN5740.JPG
World of Color is testing.
DSCN5748.JPG
I had not seen the Electircal Light Parade in 25 years. All I can say about it now is, quaint!
DSCN5768.JPG
No, we did not forget to do something.
DSCN5770.JPG
And we leave you with the Castle....At Night!

We did ride Indy on two different occasions. I had no idea that you were there. Oh well.

Great TR and pics, Erik. Quick question, how is it that the Matterhorn never made it to the Magic Kingdom?

Yeah, I wished I could've stayed an extra day after WCB--a nice, laid-back time at Disneyland would've been the perfect finish.

Space Mountain is basically the Magic Kingdom's version of Matterhorn hence why it has two different tracks. Space just happened to prove to be very popular so they ended up building a version in California as well.
