What if the “Hokey Pokey” really is what it’s all about?

I told you I would come over here!! YAY! I'm here...

so best part of this TR so far... where you wanted to get breakfast! I was rolling... This is great. But I want MORE! haha. And there's nothing wrong with being addicted to Disney.

So, I'm from California, but after a summer of being in the WDW parks every day, I am starting to forget what's at DLR and how everything works down there. The last time I went I was about... 18? I think... so it was two years ago for a couple of days, and before that, I think I was 15 or something. So it's been a while. But I should be going this summer! I'm so excited!

Well, well, well.

This is where everyone went right under my nose behind my back!!

Goofster,

I decided to take a little trip cross country to the DL TR Board for a little visit... boy, do I envy you! Right down the road from DisneyLand!

That's what I'd like to do when I retire.... just pop over to a Disney park for a few hours whenever I could. Just walk around and enjoy the atmosphere...

Your nephew, Bootstrap, is one lucky ducky!

Kathy

Hey Kathy,
Thanks for coming over and reading.

It really is cool to be so close, we can get from our Garage to the turnstiles in about 10-15 minutes. Even after 22 years of having passes we still enjoy it.

Sorceress was headed out to UCLA (Go Bruins) for a work related Boon-Doggle, so I found myself on a Solo Trip to Disneyland.

A few people (you know who you are) have asked me to chronicle my adventures at the park with pictures, so I figured this would be a good opportunity to do just that.

I decided that I would try and approach this logically (no peanut gallery comments) and start with Main Street USA, so here we go.

I got to the Downtown Disney parking lot around 7:30 a.m. and made my way to the Main Gate.

The lamp post in DTD were sporting some new advertisement



DTD was pretty much empty at that time



I got to and through the bag check table fairly quickly where they post park hours and closed attractions



Once through bag check I entered the esplanade area to find the lines for Disneyland past the Monorail Beam.




The park was due to open at 8:00 a.m. this morning, so while I was waiting I took these pictures of the ‘Were Dreams Come True” banners that decorate the esplanade lamp posts.





I finally joined the entrance line at 8:00 a.m.



Man could I have used the assistance of Buzz and his GAT Skills

Interesting side not:
There were two young ladies in front of me in line; they were joined by their brother who turned around and waved at someone to come up and join them. When I turned around there was a group of about 8-10 people walking up to the line that appeared to be some more family members. At this point there were probably 30 people behind me and I was thinking this could get ugly, sometimes when big groups join other people that already in line there might be some hard feelings. So as this boy was waving the rest of his family up to join them a women, who I am guessing was the mother in a loud and firm voice stated “We are not going to cut in front of all of these people, you get yourselves back her with us”. I was a little surprised; I don’t think that I have ever seen that happen before most people just join up

Now I am not expressing an opinion if joining up is “Right” or “Wrong” I am relating what I saw.

Ok, so now I was three people closer to the turnstiles, I got to and through the turnstiles at 8:10



I went in the left tunnel and I was on Main Street.









I had never noticed this camera on top of the Fire House before



Here are the side facades of the Emporium shop on Main Street





As you can see Main Street was pretty empty, since there was no rope drop this day, I am pretty sure everyone was headed to their favorite attractions.

I decided that I would walk through the Emporium and take some pictures for some people that seem to “Love” to shop. Now I won’t embarrass them by posting their names here.

blue_river, Serendipity, Linnie the Pooh, KathyRN137

(but if you click and highlight the area above...I'm just saying)









I think I have reached my limit for pictures so I will continue this on another thread.

Hope you enjoy what is here so far and I should have some more up later.

Love all the pics! What a great idea.. now can you do this for us weekly...

Question: Why was there no rope drop? Is this something they do every other day? When we went last year we went 2 separate days (Wed and Fri) and there was a rope drop both days....?
