Morning Visit to Disneyland
April 29th, 2014

With the park opening at 10am this week, I decided to visit the park for a couple hours after Spring Breaks have ended.  Even though it was a warm day, there were still a good amount of people here for the 10am rope drop.  

I decided to line up infront of Adventureland because I knew there was going to be a big rush going to Big Thunder Mountain, via Frontierland. 

Adventureland is slow nowadays because Indiana Jones is still down under refurbishment after Indy took a sabbatical in order to visit more museums.  Also, the Jungle Cruise didn’t open at park open, so there were skippers outside re-enacting their tours with a couple families as their “group”. 

I continued to New Orleans Square as I wanted to see how quiet it really is as Pirates of the Caribbean was closed the day prior.  

To entertain the crowd walking by, the Bootstrappers were performing outside of the attraction, who recently celebrated their 12,000th performance at Disneyland. 

Now with Pirates down, the entire area of NOS was dead quiet. 

Also, I noticed that the Mark Twain is dry-docked, usually where Sailing Ship Columbia is docked.  But it won’t be long, as it is closed only until the 30th

While wondering out of Frontierland into Fantasyland, King Arthur Carousel is also closed for the week, but while it is closed, it provides a nice time to take pictures of the horses; almost impossible to do while it is open. 

With the heat getting warmer as noon approached, I headed out to Main Street where I saw the Disneyland Band ending their show in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle and caught their one number on Main Street.  Here’s Mickey conducting to a part of “Under the Sea”. 

After this song, the Band moves down to the Main Street Train Station for one more song, stretching their morning show to three different locations on Main Street USA.  Also, new flowers were planted around the Flag Pole. 

For a while now, I’ve wanted to start some occasional blog/article here on MW.  If you want to see more of these types of articles and/or have ideas for me to write, please let me know!

that was perfect! i actually read the whole thing! i have attention issues๐Ÿ˜ - OhanaPhoto  6611.9 #21 5:07PM

The best part about this post, IMO is that it shows how you can still thoroughly enjoy the park in refurb season. Thank you! - missariel33  2115.6 #83 5:26PM

Well said.  As I was reading this I was thinking the same thing.  People complain about ride closures, but there is always so much beauty to see and fun things to do. - potatohead25  817.4 #255 4:49PM
๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘†totally agree - DarthTinkerbell  1330.7 #145 9:59AM
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘LOVED this! Thanks for the tour! Felt as though I was there. And nice narrating. YES!!!  - misschurro  8032.3 #14 5:04PM
I would love for you to do a food tour type post where you maybe go to lesser known establishments at the resort (including DTD) to give people something different to see. Don't get me wrong I love the plaza inn chicken, fried pickles and monte cristo posts but I love when I see the not so highlighted dishes and food places. - missmimi90  2055.1 #90 5:08PM
Food is always a challenge. One, it costs money and two, most of the time there's only me and I can only eat so much.  - BaseballMickey  8209.7 #13 5:45PM
I'll do it! I can eat...oh boy I can eat - missariel33  2115.6 #83 9:40PM

Great post! I would love to read more of your blogs. I still think of your wondeful post about working in the ornament shop. It is nice seeing DL through other peoples eyes! Maybe you could do an in-depth look at small areas. I enjoy just standing and looking at all the detail in any part of DL. i.e. check out the player organ in the candy shop. I'd love to find out things like what happened to the Jade Elephant when the remodeled Gibsob Girls! I can't wait for your next post!!! - Boundin  821.7 #252 10:11PM
Really great! I read it first on the "cover page" and imagined it all in my head/then clicked here to comment and saw all the pictures! EXACTLY as I imagined it via your narrative!!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘  - TinkerSchelle  2101.4 #84 10:49PM
Ps-why the short hours for the parks this week? Just cuz it's down-time from Spring Breaks and refurb? - TinkerSchelle  2101.4 #84 10:51PM
Yes. It's considered non-peak season for the next few weeks.  - BaseballMickey  8209.7 #13 10:52PM

We are figuring out that we can do a lot of walking around and enjoying the parks. A lot of rides are going down in addition to the closures for refurbs. - fab5  150.0 #2828 12:07PM

I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ - secretagentangel  8890.4 #11 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  3163.1 #49 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  1185.6 #167 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  271.1 #1241 6:54PM
Next August I will be posting wait times I know it will help pass the time in line but with 15 to 20 of us should go pretty well thanks to you and all the people here on MW - mjpdisney67  66.8 #4442 10:10AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! ๐Ÿ˜„ - secretagentangel  8890.4 #11 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10452.5 #9 9:55PM
