    Day 4... Part one Disneyland Park... in the rain...

    So we got up and it was really cloudy out. We got in the car and headed for the park, it wasn't to long and it was misting on the windshield . We were half way there and it was a really bad traffic backup... a tractor trailer had turned over carrying cement pipes... cement pieces were all over the road, we were finally through that and the next exit was our's...

    We parked in Chip and Dale

    We had to exchange a shirt for my dad and it was pouring outside, everyone was buying pouchos... we didn't though... We probably should have...

    We got in just when the train was pulling in! The conductor waved for the photo but I didn't get it...

    I loved the lamp decorations they had, there are upside down party hats with flowers in them!

    A wet Main Street... still is a beautiful main street!


    Rain also= lite crowds!


    I also have found that the colors come out alot when it's wet out!

    We went off trying to find Snow Whites Grotto but instead I found this perfect picture spot

    I heard Snow White singing "I'm wishing". And I said, It's got to be around here somewhere! And that's when I looked across the way and found it!

    I said I would get closer later...
    We walked under the castle to Fantasy land remembering Chris had told me that you can still walk through the castle.

    Then I remembered that you could actually go into the castle to see the story of Sleeping Beauty. My mom opted out because of all the steps, I wish she could have gone with me, but she had a good time talking to the CM there. Enjoy the pics for a bit...

    some of the pics aren't the best because of the lighting so just keep that in mind












    there was this window with a bunch of flying sewing spindles, the pic didn't turn out because of all the movement...

    more coming up

    Re: Lilo88's California and Disneyland Trip Report!


    It was getting scary in there by myself


    This window was cool... one min they were there then the next they weren't!
    NOT:

    THERE:

    There was a wall with a projector I reckon somewhere and everyone once in awhile you hear Malicifent then you see here shadow... It happens fast so I didn't catch it...

    Right after that they leave you hanging almost and you see this..

    It was neat but they should have put Malicifent earlier in the castle than right at the end...
    I came out and the CM that she had been speaking to had told me where she was and said to me have a good day. So I met up with her and it started POURING!!! So we ran into this shop

    It started to lighten up so we ran to Snow White just around the corner


    I loved the line there



    We rode it and had fun we got out and went to ride Pinocchio right next door. Let me warn you... if your big, the turnstile is really tight! I got a bruise on my leg from it. I loved the ride, it's been a really long time since I've seen the movie so I didn't really know what was going on in the ride, but I enjoyed it anyway. We got off and it had started to rain hard again ... so we ran next door into the Village Hauz and found a bench to sit on for a little while. My mom said we were leaving if this continued. But I didn't pay attention to her lol.
    .
    We walked over to toontown and had to stop under the bridge because it had started to rain harder again... on the way





    This Toontown is more toonish lol, I loved it, even soak and wet!

    My mom didn't want to ride Roger Rabbits Car toon Spin so she went into the post office while I rode.


    I loved the line! I walked right through it, but all the decorations was cool! So I got on and loved the ride I didn't spin that much because I was afraid I was going to miss the story, it really wasn't that much of a story but it was cool anyway even if it was for smaller children! I met up with my mom and we walked into the Gag wearhouse to see if I could find my blanket but we didn't but I did get a pin for my dad. We walked over to Minnie's house to see her. She had just walked into her house when we got in line.




    We got in line and it started to rain really really hard!!! I got soaked!!!! Dripping wet, so the next few pictures are of me dripping wet. We got in soon to see Minnie Mouse



    We walked on through her house in right on in to Mickey's, some family said there was no one in there but we walked through anyway and found Goofy!!

    Day 4 Toontown New Orleans Square, Frontierland



    then we saw Pluto

    Then on to see Mickey!! Sorceror Mickey!

    Then it had stopped raining...

    We walked to the train station... we got the train that faces you into the park in two rows.



    little side note, I loved the plants in Tomorrowland, they are all edible! I saw some cabbages and Strawberry plants sunday while there

    We went through the grand cannon and the prehistoric diagram and then on to Main Street...

    Then on to New Orleans Square, we were getting hungry so we ate at the French Market and both had citris chicken and a chesse cake that we shared.
    We then rode HM after walking around New Orleans looking for club 33 but we were unsussesful and it started to rain again .


    We were going to take the train around to the front of the park be we walked instead. Here are some pictures on the way out






    Up next main street!!

    Day 4... Main Street


    We found a bench that wasn't wet and sat down, then I remembered I wanted to see Snow Whites grotto so I walked over there while my mom talked on the cell phone.






    Here it is!!





    and the well


    I sat back down for a min then we walked on down main street

    We saw the Mad Hatter and Alice in the candy shop

    after we used the restroom the sun was coming out of course when were getting ready to leave

    We walked on through the shops and found my blanket!!! So I grabbed it up lol then we bought 3 shirts for all of us (one for each of us) then we payed and left


    I just love this window!!



    Again the Train was pulling in the station when we were leaving and the conductor waved for the pictures



    I started to tear up as we were leaving, know I would not be back for a really long time. I said my goodbyes to Disneyland and said hopefully I would make it back before to long.

    California Adventure was really backed up getting into the park!

    We got on the tram and headed for the car.
    There were somethings I didn't get to do, like the Alice and Wonderland Ride because it was raining and I never did do the monorail
    We headed back to the hotel to get ready for Hollywood the following day. My mom got a mixed drink down stairs (they had them for free every night!) we got personal pan pizzas and ate in the room for dinner.
    I watched LOST while trying to write my news article after dinner. Then we turned in for the night.

    Up tomorrow... Hollywood, not to great after all...

    Awesome, Tiffany! Those sunset pictures were gorgeous!!! DL looks amazing, I love the pink trees next to the castle. Snow White's grotto looked pretty too. And I think it's neat how you can actually go into the castle and see Sleeping Beauty's story. Sorry you got rained on, but it looks like you did a great job of making the best of it.

    More great stuff Tiff! The pics of the castle and grotto are espicially great! Toontown looks a little better than WDW's Toontown. The picture of the fire house is cool too. Did you see Walt's light on above it?
