DLR Photo Report – 7/13/08

Yesterday I had a wonderful trip to the Disneyland Resort. Apart from the Innoventions Dream Home, there wasn’t that much else going on, so included in this picture report are some lovely scenery shots. Now then, let’s hop to it:

The monorail stopped right by Soarin’ Over California for some reason

I got to the Resort for DCA’s opening so I could go straight to Toy Story Midway Mania

We stopped here for about 10 minutes, & then preceded to the actual queue for the attraction, which was about 20 minutes long

My gun wasn’t working properly on my first ride, so I went Single Rider afterwards & got this score

The Grizzly River Run waterwheel is now out from behind walls & scaffolding

When this picture was taken (about 10:45am PST), Grizzly River Run had broken down

Now we’re going to venture into Innoventions, for a look around the brand new Innoventions Dream Home!

The fictional soccer team in the Dream Home is the Astro Blasters (wonder where they got the name from?)

Taylor Morrison is holding sweepstakes where you can enter to win your own Dream Home!

Bambi was showing in this room

The entrance into the Dream Home

In this room, a cast member was telling the story of Peter Pan (very futuristic)

Me with my brother in the background

A very cool, fountain bubbly thing that actually changes colors

The Tree of Tomorrow

The Dream Banners have returned to Sleeping Beauty’s Castle

One of Disneyland’s many bands heading towards the Castle

A nice panoramic shot down Main Street USA

Flowers in bloom at the entrance to Frontierland

Pins, Pins, & More Pins!!!

This picture is kinda dark (I didn’t want to use flash), but you should be able to see that one of the Pirates in the Jail scene of Pirates of the Caribbean is missing

The Trash Can Trio entertaining crowds waiting for Walt Disney’s Parade of Dreams

And speaking of Parade of Dreams, here are some select shots from many that I took of the parade (all will soon be available in the Image Gallery)

The Little Mermaid float features my favorite costumes/performers

Three lovely ladies

A new sign up for the Art of Disneyland at the exit of Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years

I spotted these Mickey’s Pin Odyssey signs by the entrance to DCA from the Grand Californian… No idea what they were doing so far away from any of the Pin Trading carts

Mr. Potato Head is already starting to get a little dirty

Back in line for Toy Story Midway Mania

The 3rd ride of the day (my score is on the left)

And my fourth ride gives me my all time record

The fountains in between King Triton’s Carousel & Midway Mercantile were working for once

I met a total of 6 Princesses yesterday… Belle



Aurora again (luck of the draw I suppose)


And Ariel

That’s going to do it for this Disneyland Resort Photo Report (hey, that rhymed!). Stay tuned to the Image Galleries (once we get them working) for bigger versions of these pictures, as well as many others.

Until my next trip folks!
