CS FP disconnected! Trip Observations 4/29 and 5/1

This time is no April Fool's Joke. I visited the park yesterday afternoon/evening.

Notes:
-I can confirm that Screamin's FP was disconnected yesterday! I got a Soarin FP and then a Screamin FP right after.

-They took out the Toy Story 3 photo op on Paradise Pier

-I got my personal best on TSMM and I also got one of my best scores on BLAB. It was a good day for those rides!

-Watched Fantasmic for the first time in a while. It was, as always, amazing!

-Around 3:00, when we entered DCA, there was a big tree branch that had fallen and the pathway from Soarin to GCH was closed, creating a big traffic jam. It was cleared pretty quickly though.

-Rode about 11 rides in just under 10 hours in the park. Also saw RDCT and Fantasmic!

Onto the pics...


Went and explored the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail a bit




Fireworks


Teacups

So what do I do when I have days off to study for finals? I go to Disneyland twice in 3 days of course!

I went again on 5/1/12. It was a lot more crowded than I expected for a Tuesday. Still, we got on a lot of stuff and didn't really have to wait more than 15 min for anything.

-In between my trips on Sunday and Tuesday they closed the Carnation Gardens! It's gonna be a slight inconvenience not being able to go from FL straight to Rancho/BTMRR area, but it's whatever.

-Rode 28 rides in just under 12 hours in the parks. Also saw WoC from back by the green fire hydrant. We used 8 sets of FP, not including WoC.

-Rode some things that I had not done in a while including the teacups, King Triton's Carousel and Pooh

-Saw ride vehicles testing for both Matterhorn and RSR during different parts during the day. So excited for both to open!

-On TSMM we were probably in the first 50 people to ride at 10AM. I got best of this hour (230k)...but it didn't say that I got best of today or best of this month! I was really hoping that since we were visiting on the 1st, I would get that honor. I'm not sure how I could be best of the hour but not best of the day when the park had only been open for 10 min.

More pics!




A pic I took of my friend on the teacups!


Kinda a gloomy day

They were the boxes that the toys from Woody's Round Up Gang went in. This was part of Toy Story 3, where Al collected the old toys.

Pre opening rides by CM’s. Many of the attractions ride operators are aces at the game, especially when they get to ride in a car alone and not worry about someone else taking their high value targets from them.
