Another May Trip Report, Pt. 2
Today's trip report is heavy on the photos, light on the news. Hope you are all in a visual mood today! After a delicious dinner at Cafe Orleans, we wandered around the streets of New Orleans Square and clicked till we practically wore out the shutters on our cameras.
MORE light fixtures; something about the flickering of a gas flame that really adds to the atmosphere of this area (and Main Street).
Mlle. Antoinette's Shop certainly adds a pungent aroma to the air!
A stop at The Court of Angels is always a must.
TDD was caught in action again.
I went back to the Haunted Mansion, making up for my previous attempt that was interrupted by the dinner bell. I just love this guy.
I never tire of the surprise of each portrait as it unfurls.
Not sure who started the "tradition" of screaming your lungs out when this guy shows up, but I sure wish it would stop.
The festive ballroom, where it's always New Year's Eve:
This Cocteau-inspired sconce has always been a favorite of mine:
All three of us visited the Caribbean. How about switching these over to gas?
This storm is always a highlight of my trip:
Marc Davis sure captured the joy on this drunk's face:
More fun drunks:
This poor group of reprobates gets the shaft because there's no dog near their cell:
As with all vacations, they must come to an end...
and then you must leave (good excuse to shoot some signage!):
Next on the itinerary was a spin through the jungle...at night. Other than this introductory photo, no decent photos resulted from this particular adventure!
Leaving New Orleans (sounds like a bad Nicolas Cage movie), the Castle was next:
I even spent some time in Pixie Hollow (just the exterior, not the "attraction"):
Since it'd been awhile, I visited Alice; she too often gets the shaft on my visits. Down...
down, down, the rabbit hole:
Alice is really a charming attraction; maybe not full of "wow" moments, but definitely a pleasant way to spend some time.
A little bi-polar, but that's okay!
More dark rides to come in part 3! Follow my Daveland updates on Twitter and view my most recent photos on Flickr. See more vintage & current Disneyland photos on my Disneyland web page.
