More adventures at Disneyland.

Some Pirates of the Caribbean and then we went to Bengal BBQ. I noticed in the seating area by Bengal BBQ this picture of the S.E.A.

And some more scenes of Mickey's Mix Magic. While it isn't the best of Disney fireworks it is a fun show. I like Disney dance re-mixes so I liked the music a lot. The scaffolding on the castle actually made it easier to see the projections on the castle on Main Street. Normally we usually prefer to watch the fireworks from Rivers of America or it's a small world but we liked it best here (although we didn't see this show from small world). It was more immersive on Main Street and we liked the use of lasers, which wasn't used at the Rivers of America spot. Also what enhanced this show was the family next to us, one of the family members was a teenage boy with special needs and he was really pumped for the show. I don't think he stopped dancing at all during the show. Anyway he really got a positive vibe going in the area and that made it fun for all of us.

Some of the pictures are a little blurry (sorry) but it still gives an okay look at the show.

After the show we hung out on Main Street for a bit before heading back to the hotel for the night. We had to finish packing as tomorrow was departure day.

Here is a link to the soundtrack for the music of the show if anyone is interested. It is a nice clean copy. Also Disney Parks blog did a live stream of it the day before we flew out so that is a fun watch too.

After a refreshing nap we headed back to Disneyland for more fun. We had a fast pass for Big Thunder the priority was to make it to the last showing of the day of Mickey and the Magical Map. Such a fun show!

Then we had some time before seeing Mickey and the Magical Map so we decided to check out the new fancy wall at Disneyland in Toontown. It is cute.

I told him to act crazy and this is what he came up with.

Nearby was a wishing well, and Minnie's voice came out of it. And yes I'm wearing socks with my sandals. I was tired of wearing tennis shoes but I knew my toes would get cold once the sun went down, hence the socks. I was comfortable and I didn't care.

I too have had to wear socks with sandals when I was caught out by a cold spell. I unfortunately had to buy some so I admire your forward thinking 😀

They were in stock the week after she was there... doesn't it figure... I haven't heard recently if they were out again or not.
My sister texted me a picture of her and my niece with their Orange Bird sipper and one of them will be mine! 😍 She said the slushy was horrible and had a vomit aftertaste. At least the sipper is cute.

That must have looked cool with the projections on the buildings!
It was super cool, it was so immersive. Like being at a Disney rave.

Socks + Sandals = whatever works for you. WDW/DL is definitely a place where no one should judge the footwear of others - you do what you need to do to be comfortable. Although, I might be guilty of looking sideways at people who come in 1.99 flip flops (but I'm looking with pity - honest!).
Cheap flip flops?! No thanks, I too wonder how people survive with all the walking in those unsupported shoes. I used to wear my Nike flip flops to the parks but no longer. I need comfort now.

Ha ha. My $2 flip flops are my favorite. I would wear them 12 months a year if I could. As for shoes with “support”. I have flat feet, that so called support feels like I am walking on tennis balls. Not comfy! Dont pity me. Unless my toenail polish is chipped😎

Today was departure day but we had some time to play at Disneyland.

This morning we decided to rope drop Big Thunder before heading to Fantasyland. We also saw Prince Ali/Aladdin wandering around and ended up getting a picture with him. It was an interesting conversation but sometimes meeting face characters and talking to them is awkward but he was a cool character to talk to. We wandered into Toontown and met Mickey. The line was longer than we expected and we thought for sure there would be a photopass photographer but there was not. We did see a photopass photographer at the exit to Mickey's house, which was weird as he was all by himself but perhaps they were waiting to move Mickey down there. The last picture shows some set up for a media event, of course we weren't invited to it but the sign was cool.

I USED to do that too... I have flat feet... but then Plantar Fasciitis was trying to plant hold in my foot... so now I wear Skechers go walks ALL the time... even in the house ... I was lucky it did heal, but it doesn't always... please take care of your feet!

Some of the pictures don't really go in order but that's okay.

I guess Brad said I needed to pose with the Matterhorn in the background.

Brad's last meal for the trip was a hot dog.

We tried to pull out the sword from the stone, apparently we aren't worthy.
365012

Disneyland Ducklings!
365013

At one point we got more butterscotch beignets! Oh yeah baby! Notice we shared the 6 pack this time.
365014

My last meal from the trip was a grilled chicken Caesar salad from the Jolly Holiday. It was good but the chicken chunks were really big (which is good too) and I forgot a knife so that made it difficult to eat. Yes, I could have gotten a knife but I was too lazy.
365015

Look how the planters are wearing birthday hats.

And we finally made it to the 3rd deck of the Mark Twain!

We took a ride on the trolley up and down Main Street with Lucky.

And in the Candy Palace they were making chocolate Easter eggs.

And as always on the way out I say thank you to Walt and give a wave to the firehouse. I actually have started adding a thank you to Roy too, because without him we wouldn't have the Disney we know and love either.

Soon it was time to leave and we probably left too early for the airport, especially since we were just going to SNA not LAX but things happen. And we had a nightmare time getting to LAX last trip so Brad was a little nervous. But no need as we made it to the SNA with plenty of time.

Our flight boarded and I thought we would soon be on our way. But nope we waited as the thing that pushes us way from the gate broke. So we waited for something new to come, about 30 minutes. Oh did I mention we had a connection in Salt Lake City to catch with a 40 minute window and they stop boarding 10 minutes before departure time! So now I was convinced we were going to miss our connection for sure, so I was not a happy camper on this flight. Well our flight made up some time, and we landed with about 15 minutes to get to our gate. Oh we landed at terminal F and had to get to D, and we also had to wait for people to get off the people (we were in row 18). You'd be surprised at how slow people can get off a plane when you have a connection to make. So we once we finally got off we ran. And people....I don't run. But this was now the second time this year I have run through an airport to make a connection. Moving sidewalks were our friend. We finally made it to the gate and we were one of the last to board and the seats I had picked out for us upon booking and that were on our boarding pass from SNA were now not our seats. We had been given a window and a middle seat. So now we were sweaty from running and now cramped into a window and middle seat. We were not happy, but at least we were on our way home. I did take it up with Delta later, I got some credit back from Delta. And we made it home.

I recently booked our flights for our California trip in June and I mentioned taking the connection through Salt Lake (jokingly) and Brad was very vehement that it would NOT be an option!

So as I finish this leg of the trip report I have 3 sleeps until I leave for Disneyland on my solo trip!!!! My suitcase will be all packed up tomorrow, I just have to figure out which ears to take. So another part of the the Year in the Land will be coming soon. I hope you have all enjoyed it so far and a big thank you to all that are reading.

Oh and if you have any requests for pictures just let me know.

See ya real soon!

First of all, take all the ears!!!
Second, thanks for the TR. You make me homesick!
Lastly, picture request: could you snap some photos of the submarines. I love them!
But if I take all the ears, then I can't justify buying a new pair. ;)
I'm glad you have enjoyed the report even if it has made you a little homesick.
And I will take a picture of the subs for you!

As our trip to Disneyland in 2020 fast approaches (hopefully) we are starting our soft plans so all photos are a help. We've still got two wdw trips before then though.
Looking forward to your next adventure 😁

Really like that photo you took of the paddlewheels at the rear of the steamboat. Not something you'd see every day.

Oh did I mention we had a connection in Salt Lake City to catch with a 40 minute window and they stop boarding 10 minutes before departure time! So now I was convinced we were going to miss our connection for sure, so I was not a happy camper on this flight.

You'd be surprised at how slow people can get off a plane when you have a connection to make. So we once we finally got off we ran.
Ha! Been there. I recall one time I had a late, connecting flight up to LaGuardia. Like yourself, I was probably back around row 18, and freaking out because it took people so long to depart. I literally had about 5 minutes to my connecting plane to Boston, and OF COURSE, the connecting flight gate was way the heck at the opposite end of the terminal. :rolleyes:

So I'm running like crazy to get there, and twice in the overhead paging system I'm hearing my name, "Passenger (x)" please go immediately to Gate (x), your aircraft is ready for departure." 😨 I mean, they could see in the computer that my flight arrived late -- did they think I had gotten off and headed toward a bar for a leisurely cocktail, before heading to the gate??!!! :banghead:
