PIO, I just caught up. WOW to everything!

You're probably sick of hearing it...but Carsland is amazing and your photos are stunning! I'm sorry to hear that Fran was unwell and that you and Alison had that awful moment. Glad though that all was well in the end.

As for 1901...WOW! LOVE it, and the food porn was first class. As a fellow alcohol dehydrogenase poor person, I understand your choice of drink. Although how awesome is that ice sphere?!?!?

Hmmmm.....no.....I can't say I'm sick of hearing it (or reading it)!


But thank you. You're very kind!


That ice sphere was amazing. I wish they would put that in my mocktail! As a ice-sucker lover (I think I mean to say that I love sucking ice....), I did wonder if it was possible to get that in my mouth.

Never. mind. It. was. only. a. fleeting. thought.

Well seeing as we're discussing fleeting thoughts...I really wanted to lick it!

Be very careful. This was a rather sought-after avatar for a while.

In A Genie Galaxy Far Far Away – Must Do #3



We said our thanks to our benefactor and goodbyes to our DisMeet friends and headed off to continue our respective days.


Must-do #3 on my list was Aladdin; and we were heading for the 4.45 pm show at the Hyperion.






The last time I’d seen this show was in 2007 and despite trying, I have never been able to make it to a repeat since that time. I was aware that there had been changes to the show since that time, courtesy of a wayward cable on a flying carpet, so it was going to be interesting to see how that particular scene worked out.

Plus, I didn’t even know how to spell dSLR in 2007, so I took this opportunity to address a gap in my Disney picture collection.



So, settle back and buckle in.





A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…. Welcome to Agrabah. City of mystery, of enchantment





It is a period of civil war. During the battle, spies have managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star…….Awk! Cave of wonders!






The Princess is a rebellious kind of princess…..sometimes, I feel so trapped.






Enter the Dark Lord…….you know, you look great up close. But you'd look better from Ja-far.






A young boy embarks on the adventure of a life time….. Street rat! (I don't think he's the "Wan" but still I think he's rather tasty)






Our hero is pretty much alone……I'd blame parents, except he hasn't got 'em!






Pursued by the Empire’s sinister agents….






One jump ahead of the breadline, One swing ahead of the sword.







The Dark Lord sends our hero on a mission…






..…and he travels into the centre of the Death Star…….Awk! Cave of wonders.







….where he meets his loyal best friend. (Where is Abu in this production???)







The Dark Lord seeks a weapon of mass destruction….."my precioussss"….








Our hero (is) buffs!







And so he meets the kind stranger, ObiWan Kenobe…..I need to call Genie Craig!






Use the Force!.....Wish Fulfilment. Count’em. Three wishes, to be exact. And ixnay on the wishing for more wishes. That's all. Three. Uno, dos, tres. No substitutions, exchanges or refunds.







Time to Wake up and sing with the Blue Hummus!







He’ll be your Maitre’D.







Can your friends do this?








Can your friends do that?







You ain't never had a friend like me!







Princes, that is NOT ObiWan Kenobi.






And it might be a bit behind in technology, but this is NOT the Millennium Falcon.







Um…..I don’t think you’re meant to be wearing this outfit until Episode VI.







Okay. Enough with the horse-play.










(Continued in Next Post)

More from the Hyperion




It was a very lavish mini-musical production and I was having a ball photographing Aladdin. How about I just let the lens genie do the talking for this post?











































































































Thank you for choosing "Magic Carpet" for all your travel needs. Don't stand until the rug has come to a complete stop.



That scene without the flying carpet was a little lacking to me. But safety first and it all worked out happy ever after anyway.

Have just caught up again.

WOW, thanks so much for sharing the photos of the 1901 lounge. That is awesome. That ball of ice (it looks like a baseball ) was absolutely amazing! That is something that I would LOVE to have seen and experienced.

Loved the Aladdin photos too, that is such a great show. I miss DL

Very nice pictures from Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular and the Lounge. It has been a long time since I have seen Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular at DCA. I will read more later on.

Looks like you got some nice shots of your Aladdin show yourself! Thanks for sharing.

Yes, it looks like we had a complete different cast to yours. Our genie was great....not in Robin William's league (no one is in his league).....but still great.

Yup. He was pretty reasonable eye-candy.

The ball of ice was a little smaller than a cricket ball.

Thanks Bret. Really appreciate you checking in here when you can (and I know what a busy schedule you're currently keeping).

OK, back home and all caught up!

Here I thought we had a special menu eating at 1901, but as I looked it up on allears, it is the same menu as the Carthay Lounge. I wonder if they have the cool ice spheres too!

Your photos of Aladdin came out so much better than mine! So many of mine were blurry. Great job!

Welcome back!


Thanks. We never did get round to taking a real close look at your camera settings. Next time!

My only shopping time in the Park




When we came out of Aladdin, the sun was beginning to set. Where did the day go?





Alison needed to go check on something for Fran. And it was in the park across the way. So, we started to make our way out.










The thing that I enjoy most about Disneyland is that you can walk between parks.





We made our way to Crystal Arts for a little shopping and then headed over to the Disney Gallery. Whilst Alison was checking out the item, I took the opportunity to check out the Castles exhibition.

The Gallery was completely decked out with prints….





…..and models of the various Disney castles.






This one was amazingly intricate. Someday, I’m going to make it back to Paris and when I do, the Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant will be top of my list of attractions to go see.





I was super tempted by this mug; but in the end I decided not to get it. Looking at this picture, I kinda wish I had gotten it now.
