Trip Report, Pt. 1
Before the premiere, there was...The Golden Horseshoe. Yes, when I got to the park last Friday afternoon, I made a beeline for The Horseshoe, as I hadn't been to a show there in quite some time. While I waited for the show to start, I took a few interior photos. You know how I love the details!
With the success of The Hoop Dee Doo Revue at WDW, I am surprised that a dinner show has never been done at The Horseshoe. I can only guess that it's a matter of kitchen size and the layout of the Shoe itself. Still...it could be a lot of fun.
Billy Hill and The Hillbillies did not disappoint. They are a talented group, led by the always unpredictable but highly entertaining Kirk Wall.
By the end of the show I was pretty hungry, but a hot dog just wasn't going to cut it. So...I headed over to the Hungry Bear Restaurant in Critter Country to try their newly revamped menu.
The Crispy Chicken Sandwich was tasty; I really wanted the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich, but decided I should save the guilty calories for the blueberry pie. I was soooooo glad that I did. Yum!
Scot Bruce was doing his Elvis show in Tomorrowland, so after my meal, I made a beeline for the other side of the park. The Star Tours building is looking mighty fine, almost ready for its June debut. When you enter the park, you'll be greeted by ads heralding this fave attraction's return:
Nice...but not as nice as the tiled mural hiding beneath:
Even the Tomorrowland Terrace has a new selection of edibles; overall, it seems like the Dining Division of Disneyland has stepped up their game:
Again...lovin' the details:
The stage sure looks purty at night!
Whether you like Elvis or not, Scot Bruce puts on one helluva show, and his backup band is pretty fab, too.
Once that was over, it was time to check out Electronica for the first time. In the meantime, I see more photos from my recent trip in your future. Stay tuned.
