Recommended Posts

Sorry it took long to post this (busy with work) but here's the last of the photos from my California Trip back in June. This time Disney California Adventure!

Wait a minute! Are you sure this isn't Disney's Hollywood Studios??

First up, Buena Vista Street!

Looks real good. The remodel of California Adventure is what I like to call "Cleaning Up Eisner's Mess"!

Buena Vista Street blends into Hollywoodland ahead.

The train is from the recent humongous flop "The Lone Ranger" with Johnny Depp.

DSCF0186.thumb.JPG.79e8bd9b21558cc152e24f9eb43213f7.JPG

Did this one. Also did it years ago at Disney's Hollywood Studios when it was still MGM.

Didn't do this one!

This was the slowest-paced bumper cars I've ever seen!

Bumper Tires!

DSCF0230.thumb.JPG.6aab16f03a1bf7af5e9cc54d0b330e95.JPG

Time for the main attraction in Cars Land, Radiator Springs Racers. I loved Epcot's Test Track, and this is definitely a worthy successor!

DSCF0229.thumb.JPG.d919245657cff78a62f5b0aec6fa910f.JPG

One of the cars. I almost lost my camera on this, but I was able to find the car I was on thanks to the onride photo. Waited and a lady coming out of my car had my camera and gave it back to me!

DSCF0231.thumb.JPG.3466777a084a3775e78ec1471e8cda59.JPG

Time to check out Grizzly Peak!

DSCF0238.thumb.JPG.bc2c20d0eb052c6fb21cfefbfb21c357.JPG

Grizzly River Rapids. It was down around this time which was fine with me because, just like Dan here on TPR, I'm not getting wet at all!

DSCF0240.thumb.JPG.39f811b9bacee982d6de55d1f5bcdc53.JPG

They were testing it, however.

DSCF0241.thumb.JPG.ab435b37653720b6db301a9a25e69a50.JPG

A challenge trail for the kids.

DSCF0243.thumb.JPG.1c69b7f83b1ff24b38029c07946ef802.JPG

Did this as well. Its clone at Magic Kingdom was under construction when I went to the Disney World a couple of years ago. So this was my first time on this ride.

DSCF0244.thumb.JPG.04cd5547de49dae419522a95bbbe6ce0.JPG

And just like Haunted Mansion, Spaceship Earth, and Finding Nemo (The Seas with Nemo and Friends), it uses Omnimovers.

DSCF0260.thumb.JPG.4e16d9d8b9b8dc4fdaadc5ec4ec47209.JPG

Time for the best area in the park: Paradise Pier!

DSCF0261.thumb.JPG.e17abf3e6304b92b454baa5f32c24f07.JPG

Rode this. Of course I did the swinging cars instead of the stationary ones. One day I will do Deno's Wonder Wheel at Coney Island, which was the inspiration for this one, I'm sure.

DSCF0264.thumb.JPG.7b70841379085d32761ee54a2d493f7b.JPG

You know I was gonna ride California Screamin', in all of its Intamin goodness!

And last but not least, yours truly with Walt and Mickey, aka "Partners II". And that ends the California Trip Report Trifecta.
