DSC00223.JPG.125a30f2314949f1b26ee34120ee0237.JPG

Poor Florida area....:(

DSC00216.JPG.766ca27eab86b7bae06b65933ba27e10.JPG

They still have a ways to go.

DSC00219.JPG.35b76234f3f3eae0acb30436021fc01d.JPG

Legoland Vegas, coming soon.

DSC00215.JPG.9f0bdd8deb3d5f49b726faf4904136c7.JPG

Oh yeah, they had cities made out of Legos here.

DSC00213.JPG.3a63bce7cec68a94fd11108e4a9310b6.JPG

Some of them had some extra bits to them as well.

DSC00212.JPG.a715211faefff780a7b7b6e0a6464cb3.JPG

Everyone got to have a Lego plastic ball.

DSC00210.JPG.983fa0f738b98b8cf64807159da27174.JPG

We got the Legoland factory backstage tour.

DSC00209.JPG.cffbe5e2cd7bafcdf70218141c2913d0.JPG

Ummmm....yeah.

DSC00207.JPG.babd8a634549e089d85608fb8737ad60.JPG

Chuck was having way too much fun at Legoland.

DSC00204.JPG.a3e90a8db12e0d69427f93493aa17ede.JPG

Every rider on the boats also has a water cannon.

DSC00203.JPG.9cedfb9eb2aa99dfd2f326cc65a3adde.JPG

Wes just soaked a boat load of little kids. Good one Wes!

DSC00206.JPG.52b6a9c26fdd5cdfcb009cc936f29356.JPG

Time to take out a boat of people with the water cannon.

DSC00200.JPG.45af0953f2c69be6b4e74d3866884d96.JPG

We found a bunch of Rodent Pirates.

DSC00199.JPG.34bb4e0ee518f5c9e20fc78b81f2b779.JPG

Its the new Pirate themed area.

DSC00197.JPG.2df4de70ab840c7b5bf22c9644394db0.JPG

Then Guy danced a Jig.

DSC00198.JPG.a8856118a9e913767ac2a94efedb5d56.JPG

We took over this place.

DSC00194.JPG.facad47725a5aea38322e73416d848e8.JPG

Soren loves Harry Potter.

DSC00192.JPG.28891806b95fbadd64bd9b6cf0813e04.JPG

We found a Lego version of our cat.

DSC00190.JPG.069d27564c01c283d1c32e8013a8447e.JPG

Plus they are really, really, messy.

DSC00189.JPG.697478548db9fc7586a55faa854b0640.JPG

They were pretty good, but I think they are overpriced.

DSC00187.JPG.4fcf0a835880f37f6472a50a1b3e221a.JPG

We were told we had to try these.

DSC00181.JPG.9c44802faf4ad6591f9d0a0b5f88773b.JPG

Yeah, I know who is queen in my household.

DSC00180.JPG.b27e2af0cc4520c4b925bc3699ee5b78.JPG

Hee hee hee.

DSC00182.JPG.3c55416ba2f260644f306ad385eb19ea.JPG

If not, Soren made sure you did.

DSC00178.JPG.7b674331f6df1d6ac0c1806b2269e660.JPG

Having fun yet Casey?

DSC00177.JPG.0a368291136eb4207e34bebb6699822f.JPG

The insane robocoaster.

DSC00175.JPG.fb05cb2d6fa9a7537e44da6bdaec7346.JPG

People like to teach the dragon such sayings as, "Give me some Beer!"

DSC00170.JPG.193e045548d8a925601e55624d22d319.JPG

Everyone loves the mouse coaster.

DSC00169.JPG.d54de8cec29a5449dbb992d043b18c89.JPG

How awesome is it?

DSC00168.JPG.a346bc3f0c76eada2ea251f382bdfe4e.JPG

It was a special credit for Wes.

DSC00172.JPG.68e5ca6b1d1cf66aacbebfa2f2fc6264.JPG

The second coaster of the day.

DSC00165.JPG.135e7d469483dde4d306f37a9a761c01.JPG

Wes's favorite animal....

Blah blah blah blah

DSC00161.JPG.16abf06c49f365a68876da7ede61b842.JPG

It has all kinds of cool theming for a kiddie coaster,

DSC00160.JPG.58d48869a57381f9f35b1172e2358ce7.JPG

Hooray for Coastersaurus!

DSC00154.JPG.dd803fe350637cf6904036b18bfe88f8.JPG

The first credit of the day, as well as the trip.

P3030019.JPG.2ca2dc1e01de766d2b0b756ca9fe31c7.JPG

Our first park of the trip, Legoland California.

DSC00147.JPG.416810cd764207fb1b33fa8dddb7934e.JPG

This was Leanne's first trip to California.

DSC00144.JPG.1318065f29f4a4f403b730d78af11c75.JPG

Warioware rules the airplane ride.

DSC00131.JPG.b00acb0fc775bacf21f7554a25889b44.JPG

They did reopen it, so we could see that it was on fire.

DSC00128.JPG.b9a2d6a9080b01d2f3bebc03cb2eef12.JPG

The freaking Turnpike was closed.

DSC00126.JPG.61e937e2d8223c5245b379b1f809de83.JPG

This can not be good.

DSC00124.JPG.8d58af62f343c83b2a349689412e662a.JPG

On our way to the airport, we encountered a nasty traffic jam on the Turnpike.

DSC00121.JPG.c3aeb25db3dce9660e8cf95966b79865.JPG

And another one of our lawn. I am glad its not mowing season.

DSC00117.JPG.5131be2e6a438ea644bdfa5bcbcdd683.JPG

Its always tradtion to start off these things with our cat Libby.

This coaster actually was a bit scary to ride.

DSC00261.JPG.06483c7c1f6250088cffd20c24330798.JPG

The Scandia Screamer does have a few rules you must follow.

DSC00259.JPG.7e337a78704685c0987ae3db2e860910.JPG

DSC00360.JPG.119c3c2dc433e5cbd256dc8a54fb3df3.JPG

I did not get to see The Demon fight Space Monkeys around Colossus today.

DSC00359.JPG.33025738f1ae078d45404251ca7f4a55.JPG

What are they waiting for? There was hardly anoyone in the park.

DSC00358.JPG.d04d8727cdd836997b4f7f071fdaa757.JPG

DSC00356.JPG.c7f5dfecece91ced4765332e2e3f7d08.JPG

It only took us 5 minutes to get these processed.

DSC00355.JPG.7f03d3c47b54d2ab699b1bc2947d0312.JPG

We walked over to this place.

DSC00352.JPG.84f6e059a569b76e8fbf77eabc4e32f6.JPG

SFMM's crowds were very light.

DSC00350.JPG.4626b7c8308823ff59c181d27957c785.JPG

All newly restored.

DSC00351.JPG.401325d92cd82acff3d61bd6962b8d61.JPG

Yeah, we always try to ride these things.

DSC00348.JPG.3ee3e46200c055e49eb5bf7089cea4f4.JPG

Its the only point that Tatsu's track touches the ground.

DSC00346.JPG.4ebff75f8c2b4ca7f8753c53725a3392.JPG

Sure beats the stairs back down the mountain.

DSC00345.JPG.33c04cef8cc9d9bb5eb046c678f6275f.JPG

Best transportation ride ever.

DSC00344.JPG.fd2f0e68ed556833f0a9bf4e209aac5b.JPG

SuperSoren.

At least Leanne got to get another photo with Superman.

200703040003.jpg.e9b16194ca1ad9af5632dd662bc2d6bb.jpg

I totally blame these people.

DSC00341.JPG.b9bec40e687ec42e5ac8094165314c35.JPG

Though this was as close as we got to the ride that day.

DSC00340.JPG.ef3cf91a3d6422531ace12afa6dbe8a5.JPG

Leanne loves Superman coasters.

DSC00338.JPG.c9b666d3715ad24e7d03023e0e18e605.JPG

So we walked over to Superman.

DSC00333.JPG.f671c9f00479c996cc5a41deaa995b5b.JPG

No Ninja credit that day.

DSC00332.JPG.be38def740c154f01008242661dda2b4.JPG

Soren was happy to be back on the ground.

DSC00327.JPG.6a9895a513750f753d916124cba8c30f.JPG

Two missed credits in one picture.

No smoking food or drinks.

The elevator had some problems that day.

DSC00319.JPG.eb80df1678affcf2842d52b12848e8ac.JPG

Its really tall.

DSC00318.JPG.bcf7e8d99fa848e65ba40da67193cd53.JPG

After a million stairs, we made it to the top.

DSC00315.JPG.eb6d5beb355ef5bab51db28702574831.JPG

We must go to the sky tower.

DSC00310.JPG.6cf2fe39800a3757800c1993cf949dea.JPG

We did not mind missing out on this credit.

DSC00309.JPG.c446ce6ded1db4e7176da5e748da7771.JPG

I wonder if it will be the next one to go.

DSC00308.JPG.337ff1c2a8d90903ed182700a181f3a1.JPG

Still two for two.

DSC00304.JPG.e1a7d8b9deb7a82f649c27158905179d.JPG

Crazy queue antics.

DSC00302.JPG.6deebc6f31dcd6b875092c3454696e0b.JPG

DSC00301.JPG.8c9746d13ee9193637f9e8f8140dc16b.JPG

Bathroom sign theming is always cool.

DSC00298.JPG.b239076e360af2cc9b9ca84b12881ab8.JPG

I hate standup coasters, but I actually enjoyed this one.

DSC00297.JPG.3ab9ed9320aa66519e61ac2c8c72757f.JPG

I wonder if it is wise to wear a tie on this ride.

DSC00296.JPG.9abbd399f82ba464e8d771a8df63362c.JPG

I think everyone already knows that this is the very first Intamin drop tower.

DSC00295.JPG.3033d0308b93579ab0797c6d8b183696.JPG

Freefall was open, so I had to ride.

More TPR people in front of Scream!

DSC00286.JPG.fe24637edb7e77831cb8eadc56a10f30.JPG

Hey wait, we know these people.

DSC00282.JPG.3f7a7fedb2ace4ebf5250346aff29c0b.JPG

Yeah, everyone needs to have a Goliath picture taken.

DSC00276.JPG.0f59b4525cbdda936c335dcb62ac9104.JPG

I think it was Soren's favorite coaster on the trip.

DSC00277.JPG.c9bbbc5accacbef24aca58e700f1ff61.JPG

Oh yeah, we got this credit.

200703040002.jpg.195f3c4a9739ae6615fe039eed5142a0.jpg

Maybe it is the new Batcave.

DSC00274.JPG.75c3512c57f6b435a1e92905cf333d56.JPG

Ok, what was the purpose of this tree?

DSC00273.JPG.d1e78206af304d7298b53eec54ad4800.JPG

I really wished I had the opportunity to ride the original version.

DSC00272.JPG.f28a891cdc81b1a83f28cd730fd34a6f.JPG

Ok, why not.

DSC00271.JPG.4beecfe6d463a52402f2ddea65e43db3.JPG

I wonder where we should start.

DSC00269.JPG.db04b4382469b92f51b938b244850d1a.JPG

Never seen this picture before.

DSC00268.JPG.b6339a64f8149eb699050d84e67e0458.JPG

Yes, we will not be riding these today.

DSC00267.JPG.4082bc5c0cf0dbacdbaa7dbd7da7b136.JPG

See, here is the proof.

DSC00265.JPG.ff1aed50f9f3ce1e3725680caf2e2d9f.JPG

Onto the Disneyland Resort. We ended up staying at the resort for three days, so there will be several installments of photos.

 

Disney's Grand Californian Hotel

200703050039.jpg.d9a4ab32e722045a82eb9f1646fdea18.jpg

I thought this was kinda cool.

200703050036.jpg.114062e904396b1e0ba23f427eb11095.jpg

After riding Pirates, Mansion, and Big Thunder we walked back to the hotel.

200703050034.jpg.553349210b225b0aa1d95299de88b5c6.jpg

We thought Downtown Disney was quite nice. Its a bit different than the Orlando version.

200703050030.jpg.0e6380a590052f23003aacd4b749c866.jpg

L is for Leanne.

200703050028.jpg.7023b89fa5bc36c6ce45af4f729fcb6c.jpg

You can throw a rock at the entrance to California Adventure from Disneyland.

200703050027.jpg.c7cb519f9f5dea78f617ee51481c147a.jpg

Yeah, we had to experience the good version of Pirates.

200703050025.jpg.30aec9689233081bcee781b1bfc82b76.jpg

Ok, we walked over to Disneyland.

200703050038.jpg.0e7264ec8078e7b80e9cafca8b5879df.jpg

We had a couple hours to spare so we escaped our hotel room.

200703050043.jpg.2eda545364ae1e4f300da659f42845c8.jpg

As well as a Disney version of this thing.

Disney themed candy.

200703050020.jpg.db88ad271cdf158e4b9e40dc26abdcfa.jpg

Hotel information.

200703050016.jpg.5c15d5285880367a26da5b8b05e0374b.jpg

I do not think this page is found at Walt Disney World in Orlando.

200703050014.jpg.2b5642cd687a9e0a412ea8c0b80056b5.jpg

All you need to know about the hotel can be found here.

200703050012.jpg.7ccc8b5168c316597b95e4ebdbab6e10.jpg

As well as our park maps.

200703050009.jpg.f01be1a0bb7fbff4250dd2f3268bee8d.jpg

As well as Disney Cartoons on the TV.

200703050005.jpg.1a51bbf61a8917b8842691126d618ebb.jpg

We had a nice sized bed.

200703050004.jpg.593f3a32b7f8d9ec8021f745f8acd3dc.jpg

Look at all that stuff.

200703050003.jpg.d4d27cd91367b81cee725bfa0546defe.jpg

Everyone receives one of these folders filled with all kinds of stuff.

200703050002.jpg.e59d1af7ce7a5e0e2fb83a0d7ac070b6.jpg

We finally made it to the Disneyland Resort.

200703050001.jpg.fae8c04b77e996efd8d51997af0faf1f.jpg

After a full day at SFMM, we arrived at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel.

Yeah, we had to experience the good version of Pirates.

 

Yes! Pirates almost makes the trip and jet lag worth it all by itself.

 

We did the real Pirates in January, following by the crappy Magic Kingdom Pirates in February. The Magic Kingdom version was a real "WTF" moment for us. "Where's the drop? Where's the rest of the ride?"

 

That's just one reason why I think Disneyland park is better than Magic Kingdom. Fantasyland at DL is much nicer, detailed with those cobbled stone buildings as opposed to the cheap painted wood tents at MK. Space Mountain is better at DL. I could go on...

^ Space Mountain is better. Rockin' Space Mountain sucks.

 

Yeah, but isn't Rockin' just a temporary overlay? The ride system on the Disneyland version is a lot better than the Magic Kingdom version. Not that I dislike MK Space Mountain. I really like it. Though I think rumor has it Magic Kingdom's version is slated to get modernized as well.

The more I hear about this weekend, the more I wish I'd just blown off work and gone.

 

Well, here's to living vicariously--nice work, Erik and Leanne!

Magic Kingdoms PotC does have a drop.

^Halfway through--as does the Pirate Adventure at Drayton Manor.

 

Figures that they'd rip off the lesser version of POTC.

Magic Kingdoms PotC does have a drop.

 

I know, but it's weak compared to the Anaheim version. Remember that Pirates was never part of the plan for MK. It was shoehorned in due to complaints about the lack of Pirates.

Disney's California Adventure.

200703050133.jpg.723298a34ab4a69119a17057826d7030.jpg

We all liked DCA. It certianly was a great first visit.

200703050141.jpg.76f298c22f2430dde5e33e38f77c1b48.jpg

This one has two good sized drops.

200703050143.jpg.306b54531f03a5b87cd58d7d76fb2e6a.jpg

OK, back to this area so we can finish with the rapids ride.

200703050139.jpg.75fe4c07c5a7285a665891b0c718707a.jpg

Disney really needs to buy a full set of these things. Best skooters in the world.

200703050137.jpg.b1a97729f4dc6cf64ccf693b16d595b9.jpg

I am glad we got fast passes earlier in the day.

200703050135.jpg.857b4652ab2c622c4ad64e1b93d36185.jpg

Its certainly one of the best coasters in California.

200703050136.jpg.1a86c16e35465fca4cbb6c4ae12fae9d.jpg

Yeah, we had to ride this again.

200703050132.jpg.3c8bb6e9e2df7e68f584d4deb26a1812.jpg

Yummy!

200703050125.jpg.f9a7854b3659b521e1465cfd86dad7f5.jpg

We skipped this one since its the same as the Florida one.

200703050124.jpg.328cc88dea0755e8f69c19d5c86abe65.jpg

Its a LOT better than Florida's Monster INC attraction.

200703050122.jpg.02599b57dfa653128a5a6602cb18b150.jpg

This was better than expected.

200703050121.jpg.1a0167823d20c35261c01121bb0d33c1.jpg

Looks like the MGM sound stages. Though there isn't a Vekoma in a box here.

200703050076.jpg.305fbd5cec9894914bc4030b588e5cc3.jpg

While its still a good ride. I am now allowed to call the Florida version, "The Good Tower".

200703050119.jpg.c16216b1a0f1a56f0a5ba7d0d594107a.jpg

Soren and his new robe.

200703050118.jpg.3e025239808d994fb2598763073e5031.jpg

Why did it always stop on the 3rd floor before reaching the basement?

200703050115.jpg.7d4e84fb313bf96e8ae23bcf529afa39.jpg

There was a little extra theming in the queue area. Anyone ever seen the Little Girl Lost episode?

200703050111.jpg.afe138793e5291bd370607482778d12d.jpg

Did DCA's version ever have the cool message that Florida's used to have?

200703050108.jpg.2791cc01ecb3827a8e3c827c828b93e0.jpg

The original Tower is my all time favorite Disney attraction.

200703050093.jpg.aee2580440cff23747cd7df9c03635d0.jpg

Ok its time to visit DCA's version of Tower of Terror.

200703050103.jpg.ba80ad0a7d90707e5d94068356e40b72.jpg

The show was much better than any of us expected it to be.

200703050098.jpg.fcc9cda8a7206229e6e6134d23ebbb8d.jpg

This show proved to be really popular.

200703050097.jpg.c89e14401b9228ba31a3c97ff548324b.jpg

I think Soren liked his cotton candy.

200703050095.jpg.b0f9dab5927b7aaec497a8787a642432.jpg

Yeah, the Aladdin show is in this area.

200703050091.jpg.8df21e14bc2924b05d4ee5a4fadacb15.jpg

Time to go into DCA's version of Disney/MGM studios.

200703050090.jpg.de1684ddab5655df306dc8917f2262cf.jpg

While the ride was the same, the queue area was really different.

200703050089.jpg.85e8a9011b5f3d771d24c89e5580d3cf.jpg

We now have done both of them.

200703050087.jpg.c60dc97b5008dca8614a07a5d0878186.jpg

Yeah, we had to ride Soren's ride.

200703050084.jpg.e99fdabaf62729fffabad222177e0e40.jpg

You can actually buy ice cream in the train.

200703050083.jpg.493423efe1b7b1bd57b4ac77e46479cf.jpg

After this picture was taken, Alessandra flew away forever.

200703050081.jpg.95606fafeb7c6342151922c158ffb557.jpg

As well as the Golden Gate Bridge

200703050082.jpg.013cf5bb6c4fdb42cba815be9d4de132.jpg

The sunwheel.

200703050079.jpg.550cbd73510e1f4901c7257f094622aa.jpg

Ok, here is a better view. Though I think it still looks more like a wolf.

200703050078.jpg.5cca7d4c29fcab3c8ebd8333eb30aaad.jpg

The BEAR mountain thingy through the trees.

200703050077.jpg.3f181b578bcf41ba052e85ee9345b1b2.jpg

We never did walk into this land. Sorry Bug's Life fans.

200703050072.jpg.2808c786ead3131e69c753025763f469.jpg

The history of California on a wall.

200703050073.jpg.0f558aa9c7a81ff46aca13a6b5c48638.jpg

We learned all there is to know about California from this movie.

200703050070.jpg.9d1bda314ca65fc358c8272e3868a86b.jpg

Yeah, we rode this as well.

200703050067.jpg.7f47b133d2c2eda903cb8602f284f65e.jpg

Though we did not get to ride in the cop car.

200703050065.jpg.8e3bd2c0bb11cfaf7a6bd41f64603e1c.jpg

Yes, they have 2 credits at DCA.

200703050064.jpg.4c73f99d7053b448787d806891f12039.jpg

The maliboomer scream shields really do work.

200703050062.jpg.34ff4a994e0db1de34443786a1e55c07.jpg

You do get a nice view of the park from there.

200703050060.jpg.700ff5627020ac4dce4ef8b0113ee51b.jpg

We all got a little bit motion sickness from this ride.

200703050063.jpg.96e2d4ae5bd4c8684a500c3d2350a5aa.jpg

This thing was insane.

200703050058.jpg.a3aafcd7c7b62388726a2ec403076f4a.jpg

We did not mind the the new music, since we have never ridden the other version.

200703050057.jpg.613b318530dd94e57ce48a9959791dbb.jpg

Yeah, we really enjoyed California Screamin'.

200703050056.jpg.e2b18bfec6d8d1799b902cdcc16d98f3.jpg

OK, we have a coaster to ride.

200703050054.jpg.3979134092610a04083b11c05f8c2771.jpg

It certainly is one of the nicer areas of the park.

200703050053.jpg.40c0c26c873af1aeea890985ed7cb42b.jpg

This is the giant waterwheel by the rapids ride.

200703050052.jpg.7d9f1b96002c47ab99645d941bc882a3.jpg

You can find Brother Bear at DCA.

200703050051.jpg.450fda39637b1486bfd5073e8f1760c4.jpg

Looks like fun. It also has really good theming.

200703050050.jpg.c099bc600dfaaf4d759d03c4b584250b.jpg

Yeah it drops you right next to the Grizzly rapids ride, which we rode later.

200703050049.jpg.4a61fbe68273faf575ca809963f8757f.jpg

We walked right into DCA from our hotel.

200703050048.jpg.206ca4c084c7108e2e2c58d954896162.jpg

Good to see that California also has stray cats.

200703050047.jpg.5d86ca9a63979206d0c36e32333e6f49.jpg

Food = Park Energy

200703050044.jpg.7e924f31ed0e072c0e64283f3aaf791f.jpg

Yeah, the hotel even looks better in the daytime.

200703050041.jpg.cc811ba42c25a4be8c3d7287821ecbf3.jpg

Good morning Hotel, as well as the Indy building.

So did that rapids ride have the camera-killing wetness that Kali had?

 

We did not get very wet, but some people did. This rapids does not have the item storage area in the middle of the boat like the Kali ones do. At least there are free lockers (just like at Universal) for this ride.

I've heard Florida's Disney property is nicer than California's, but by the looks of these pictures DisneyLand looks right on par with DisneyWorld.

 

Anyways,nice pictures.I think it's so cool that your hotel is connected to the park.

Why did it always stop on the 3rd floor before reaching the basement?

 

It "stops" on the 3rd floor because that is when the elevator is unloading the previous guests. Then the hand moves down to B, and you load.

 

Also, the mountain is a grizzly bear, not a wolf. That's why it's called Grizzly Peak, dumbass.

@#$@ those "free" lockers at Universal. I wound up having to pay at both Hulk and DD when I went last October, because they screwed up the time necessary for me to get through the queues.

 

This annoyance prompted me to buy a pocket-sized camera case.
