Before I go even one step further, I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for chiming in on yesterday’s blog survey.
I didn’t really know what to expect. But you were kind, considerate, and honest with integrity. I’m anxious to share some feedback and offer up some answers very soon.
Just know? I heard every. single. word. and you have no idea how grateful I am that it’s a-ok to just be myself forevermore! THAT part is easy. 🙂
Now… let’s have some fun!
I’m going to do my very best to keep our Disneyland show and tell to a dull roar. 🙂
Today is going to be about my fav Disneyland district, and the next post will host my best somewhat hopefully useful Disney tips, along with some pretty incredible themed work.
But today… it’s kinda sorda about junk! *sniff*
This is the first time we saw it, and the moment I stepped out of the cricket filled Bug Land into this little horn honkin’ junky suburb, you know I hit pay dirt!
This is the first building I saw. And I’m pretty sure I broke out into a sweat with no heat in sight.
I don’t get it. Where was the long lineup to oogle this decadent building?!
Well, I’m GLAD everyone was busy chomping down churros and sprinting for fast passes, because that left me all by my lonesome. I went one morning early on my own (my boy needed to sleep), and had the BEST time clicking at every chunka tin I came across.
So my main tip for today? Take some time to forgetallabout the rides, slow down, and take in the restful sights.
Because when you’re busy with all those lineups, you truly do miss a great deal of magic in the surroundings.
Seriously. Take your time and study every inch of these pictures. And feel free to click them to view them larger.
I can’t even imagine how plain this little town would be without the Christmas decor.
And then…. I’ve saved the best for last.
The cars canyon… I can barely mouth the words to how this made me feel.
I’ve really come to respect this kind of work, due to my friend Dan’s themed biz, Imagination Corporation. If I didn’t know better, I’d say this was hand carved fibreglass reinforced concrete. How did I do Dan?
It was SO BIG. Life size even.
I just sat… and stared.
The ride is all about the land of cars. You go through various buildings such as a gas station, workshop, etc etc, all slow and steady like, then suddenly you hit the high road and blast off on a race track!
It wasn’t a roller coaster, but close. Flat roller coaster? But THRILLING! So thrilling!
The lineups were mayhem for this ride. All day and all night. The only way to land a ticket is to go in the AM and stand in line for a fast pass. Which resulted in coming back at 9:30 pm for the actual ride one night.
Crazy. But it’s that good.
It’s ok. We got on once.
Because I lost the fast passes for our 2nd round…
Tip #2? DON’T DO THAT.
My boy was willing to waste away our last night in a 2 hour lineup for this ride, but not I.
He got over it. We ended up going on around 10 other rides instead, with no lineups. I’ll fill you in on how we made out like bandits next post.
Upon request, they take your picture at certain landmarks, hand you a card, and once you get home, you can view them online and purchase if desired.
Even if we did have to pose around midnight for it… zzzzz
What do you think? Did the theming blow you away too?
