Aloha all! I'm a big jolly asian/hawaiian dude. i'll be solo, having a lime green mickey head on me somewhere.

I'm here. Well, in my hotel for a short break before tonight. Yay. I woke up around 4 and couldn't go back to sleep so I just started driving then, and got to DLR at 10. I'm so excited for the coming days meals, so I promise some food porn. Going to Goofy's Kitchen, Napa Rose, and Cafe Orleans.

Just some thoughts:
-As noted before, no more single rider line for TSMM
-On the other hand, Indy has a single rider, though that already had fastpass (so IMO not as good)
-Parks were not too busy when I got there, but I'm sure it will be busy tonight.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

Alas, there is no food porn to be had. My camera decided to die (not just the battery the entire camera) last night, allowing for only a few pictures - not very good ones either. Haha. Oh well!

I've never done any TRs, so here is just a random selection of thoughts for the day. If anyone has any questions about DLR right now, I can give my solo POV. Haha

- Thanksgiving was not nearly as crowded as I expected it to be. All the guide books says its crazy, when really, it seem like it was a slightly busy weekend night. (Of course, that will probably change this weekend.) The wait for Big Thunder was 10 minutes at 6 pm, and there was hardly anyone watching Billy Hill

- Did Thanksgiving dinner at Goofy's Kitchen. I probably will go somewhere else next year. I felt a bit odd being alone there, and the last time I went there the Fairy Godmother gave me grief about being solo - so I was a little afraid she would be there again.

- The snow is still really magical. Living in Flagstaff, I'm going to get real snow, but Disney snow isn't so cold, so its better. Haha.

- I have been taking advantage of the Premium passholder discounts at all the stores (20% off until January 3rd). I bought gifts and a Pooh Vinylmation for myself. It's awesome!

- DCA is still a huge maze of walls and barriers!

- The lighting(?) ceremony for It's A Small World was around 8:30 pm. It was really cool. I had never seen it before, but its a really cool holiday video thing projected onto IASW with holiday music.

- Before going to Goofy's Kitchen, there were some carolers in the Disneyland Hotel lobby, taking requests. This was around 6:30, but it was nice to here some live festive music.

I'm staying at the Crowne Plaza. It's decent. $12 Resort fee :\ but at least that includes the shuttle. I got it on Priceline for $40/night so I really can't complain.

I'm so excited for Napa Rose, I've been a few times before and its always spectacular.

Aloha! Enjoying reading about your trip.

What else has single rider now? The DL site does not list these.
Someone asked me about Space Mt, Thunder Mt and Matterhorn.

Can't wait to hear about your Napa Rose experience. I did the counter special meal planned by the chef and it was outstanding.

Thanks!

As far as Single Rider, the only ones in Disneyland are Indy and Splash. In DCA, Screamin', Grizzly River Rapids, and Soaring over California. I don't remember if Mulholland Madness does or not, as I never ride that.

I'm really excited to eat at the Napa Rose again.

Aloha disneyobsessed808! I'm sending you an shaka! I'm enjoying yor reports too! Thanks for posting! What a bummer about the camera! I would so if that happened to me on my first day of my trip. I feel for you eating alone on Thanksgiving. I would be uncomfortable in that environment by myself too. I bet there were a lot of families, etc. Love the updates!Keep 'em coming.
