The last day of our trip was another long one. We “slept in” until around 10:00 AM before showering and heading into the parks. In the late morning, we saw Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond) on the walking path between Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage and The Matterhorn. Over at California Adventure the Genie and Carpet [...]
Another long day at the parks, highlighted by out trip to the Blue Bayou. Marie left midday to do some laundry, during that time I did my best to figure out the links on both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure’s Fastpass systems. This is what I seemed to figure out: Disneyland: Everything but Autopia and [...]
We only had a few hours in the parks but we did manage to hit up Goofy’s Sky School for the first (and probably the last time). The real event for us today was seeing The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson over at the CBS Television City building. The real news came when our [...]
After a fourteen hour day, Marie and I are definitely feeling it (she cheated though and took an hour plus break midday). The day started off on a good note with us overhearing a father refer to his son as Anakin, this was followed up later in the day with another child named Lando. In [...]
We didn’t spend as much time over at the Expo today – we only planned on one presentation but we gave ourselves plenty of time to ensure that we’d see it. Before heading over to the Expo though we stopped in both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure to get Fastpasses for Star Tours, World of [...]
I went into yesterday at the D23 Expo with unattainable expectations. We were soured by the lines for the Parks and Resorts presentation, and then by the presentation itself. I had been looking forward to seeing that presentation since the 2011 D23 Expo was announced and while I had played down my disappointment, I think [...]
At 1:00 we saw the making of the Little Mermaid presentation where several interesting details were revealed. I recorded audio, but unfortunately there was an autistic man in front of us that made many parts of it hard to hear. What seemed odd was that he was by himself. As someone that is very familiar [...]
We finally arrived in Los Angeles at close to 9:00 PM local time last night. All told we spent over 15 hours trying to get here. We arrived too late to get a sneak peak inside the Expo (there was a press event on Thursday 8/18). All told though, it seems that it was well [...]
The day began when I couldn’t process my alarm going off at 5:30 AM. After my phone called a friend of mine while I put it in my pocket we were on our way to Providence for our 8:45 flight. Getting in and out of T.F. Green is head and shoulders above Logan. There was [...]
In early 2009 the Disney company launched a viral marketing campaign that asked it’s fans, “Are you 23?” After a countdown clock emerged it was ultimately revealed that Disney is launching their own fan community called D23. At first, many fans were skeptical, but when the magazine, events and merchandise started to pour out the [...]
Over in Disney California Adventure, the Disney community is abuzz with talk of the Wonderful World of Color premier. What has been lost in this discussion is the changes made over at their preview center, The Blue Sky Cellar. Now that World of Color has opened, they can introduce new exhibits into this show space [...]
Our last day of the trip, and we knew we didn’t want spend too much time fighting the crowds in Disneyland. We went there first thing to grab Space Mountain Fastpasses, but much to our dismay both Space Mountain and Indiana Jones Adventure were down. I had wanted to go on Star Tours so I [...]
Crowds definitely picked up today, and in Disneyland you really feel it. Sure, you can see things with Fastpass, but because of the poor setup of the queues, the walkways get very congested. We started the day with a quick ride on Soarin’ Over California before heading across the street to Disneyland to hit all [...]
A short day in the parks meant we didn’t see and do a whole lot Disneywise. We knew we wanted to hit the 12:10 showing of Aladdin A Musical Spectacular, and our 1:30 reservation at the Blue Bayou. Anything on top of that was gravy. We arrived at California Adventure a few minutes after the [...]
While we kept a sane pace, we accomplished quite a bit today. Like we have in the previous days, there was some crisscrossing of the parks to accommodate the need for Fastpasses. Couple that with really light crowds, and we were able to do quite a bit. Before we got to the parks, we stopped [...]
On our way over to the parks today we encountered a group of protestors that were indicating that Disney discriminated against black carpenters. I haven’t heard any news stories about this, but my initial impression is that this company lost the bid for the construction work in the California Adventure expansion. Assuming that’s the case, [...]
