So Ruby was nice enough to not only sign me in to Disneyland today, but let me drag her around for a few hours, too. I really wanted to see the new "Cars Land" they added at California Adventure. Also they re-did the entry area to look like 1920's LA that Walt Disney would have been first drawing in. It was a very nice redo, I thought. All the glamor of 1920's LA without having to worry about being beat up if you are Mexican.

On to Cars Land! I have been dying to see it. They did a nice job, with desert landscaping everywhere. It was a little hot and I would have liked some more shade though. I was estupid and didn't put on any sunscreen and my tits are fried.

Radiator Springs Racers. This was SO FUN. The beginning is like a dark ride, then at the end you race the car next to you and it turns kind of roller coaster. Loved it! The line was 2 hours long so we did single rider line (which was like half an hour). We ended up in the same car anyway.

After that we had lunch here, but I was too hungry to take pics of the food before I ate it. It was pretty good though. The nice thing about going with Ruby is she gets a 35% discount.
<img alt="[linked image]" src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f227/ ... CI0437.jpg">
After that I talked Ruby into going on this silly ride, which was suprisingly fun.

They had some peeps climbing the Matterhorn
<img alt="[linked image]" src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f227/ ... CI0464.jpg">
We went on the new Star Tours since I hadn't been on it. I was kind of "meh" about it. It was ok. I hate 3D. I read that this thing used to be a goose in America Sings but they skinned it and made it a robot for star tours.
<img alt="[linked image]" src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f227/ ... CI0466.jpg">
I'm not sure what this place was but I took pics of it.

By this time Ruby (and myself) were kind of pooping out but I talked her into my favorite ride, the Haunted Mansion.

That's about it. I tried to take a few pics inside the Mansion but they never come out. FUN FUN time, thanks Ruby!!!

YW Ginny! I had a whole other "Cars" adventure of my own after I left too, but more on that tomorrow.

I'd like to note two things:
1) Prolly me that dropped that F-bomb. Since I'm so sensored at work, it leaks out when I'm not on the clock
2) That is the automatic face I make when people pull out a camera. I don't know why...



Better to be a smart-ass than a dumb-ass.

That looks like it was a day filled with awesome!

When you said that truck was rolling down the street talking to people, do you mean it had like, set phrases it was saying, or was it actually having conversations?

Also, do they ever change up rides... like with the Haunted Mansion, do they bring new stuff in?

Yay for pics.

Well done!  You really caught the mood of the place and the fun.  I want to go!!   I've been to Disneyworld and my favorite there was the Haunted Mansion too.   Thanks for inviting us along.

Jealous! Looks great, but I would have waited for the dole whip. YUM!

I miss Disney, I'm ready for a trip back to fl.

Aurora - I'm not sure if the phrases were random or not. Those guys in white were keeping everyone out of the path. They were probably random, like a mini-parade float. They add new stuff pretty often. The haunted mansion turns into the nightmare before Christmas in September and stays that way until New Years, which is one of the reasons I wanted to go on it. I hadn't been on when it wasn't Nightmare Before Christmas in a long time (or it's closed because they are either taking the stuff down or putting it back up.) Everytime they put the regular stuff back it changes a tiny bit - this time it had a new "bride" in the attic that I hadn't seen before but Ruby and I didn't like her that much. My favorite bride was when she just had a black face and a glowing beating heart. That was creepy.

All the Cars stuff and the new entry way just opened up in late may or early June, so it was all new. Poor California Adventure really didn't go over that well when it opened up, so they were trying to fix some of the problems (mainly, the fact that is was painfully boring). Seems like at least once a year they are adding or completely revamping something. Unlike Florida, California tends to be more local people so they need to give people a reason to keep coming back.

Appy - That's the nice thing about living so claose, I can pretty much go back and get a Dole Whip when it's less crowded. My favorite is the Dole Whip Float - Pineapple juice with pineapple ice cream.

And after listening to the video one more time, that is definitely my F bomb at the 1 minute mark. That thing knocked you around a lot and I wasn't holding on because I was filming, so I kept slamming in to Ruby. That's why I kept saying "sorry!"

So Ruby was nice enough to not only sign me in to Disneyland today, but let me drag her around for a few hours, too. I really wanted to see the new "Cars Land" they added at California Adventure. Also they re-did the entry area to look like 1920's LA that Walt Disney would have been first drawing in. It was a very nice redo, I thought. All the glamor of 1920's LA without having to worry about being beat up if you are Mexican.

On to Cars Land! I have been dying to see it. They did a nice job, with desert landscaping everywhere. It was a little hot and I would have liked some more shade though. I was estupid and didn't put on any sunscreen and my tits are fried.

Radiator Springs Racers. This was SO FUN. The beginning is like a dark ride, then at the end you race the car next to you and it turns kind of roller coaster. Loved it! The line was 2 hours long so we did single rider line (which was like half an hour). We ended up in the same car anyway.

After that we had lunch here, but I was too hungry to take pics of the food before I ate it. It was pretty good though. The nice thing about going with Ruby is she gets a 35% discount.

After that I talked Ruby into going on this silly ride, which was suprisingly fun.

Warning, the below video may have an F bomb. It was scarier than it looked!

For Jo - We went in the Ghiradeli chocolate store just to look around. It smelled pretty amazing in there.

After that we just kind of wandered around for a bit then decided to head on over to Disneyland.
Main Street. I love walking on to Main Street. It's calming and exciting all at once.

They had some peeps climbing the Matterhorn

We went on the new Star Tours since I hadn't been on it. I was kind of "meh" about it. It was ok. I hate 3D. I read that this thing used to be a goose in America Sings but they skinned it and made it a robot for star tours.

I'm not sure what this place was but I took pics of it.

By this time Ruby (and myself) were kind of pooping out but I talked her into my favorite ride, the Haunted Mansion.

That's about it. I tried to take a few pics inside the Mansion but they never come out. FUN FUN time, thanks Ruby!!!
What a great day! Thanks for sharing!
