Trip Report Pt. 8: A Mess of Miscellany
Today's post is the finale in my most recent trip report. It is a medley of miscellany; kind of like Thanksgiving leftovers. Once I departed Toontown, I got a few shots of the Fantasyland Theatre. Even though the fairly new show Mickey and the Magical Map was about to start, I decided to skip it. I was ready to leave the park. Too many people...too crowded...and the strollers had begun to take over.
The Carrousel was shut down in Fantasyland for a little refurb. I really like the signage that the park has been posting lately, as it gives guests something to read and learn about as far as the history of the attractions go.
It's a very nice nod to the past while they are maintaining what's behind the fence.
Here are a few celebrating the water features in the park, beginning with one of the majestic Matterhorn:
Snow White's Wishing Well was recently unveiled after a refurb.
Even though Dopey is still missing his fishing rod, I celebrate that this area is still around.
Pixie Hollow is not really something I celebrate, for the tots, it is nicely themed and allows them to meet Tinker Bell. Oh and yes...the merchandise at the end. Don't forget that.
Cruella was over at the Opera House in Town Square, signing autographs and dropping cigarette ashes on the kids. Well, not really, but if she could, that would be hilarious. Fake ashes, of course.
Mickey was also spotted wandering through Town Square.
And that is the end of probably one of my longests trip reports in history. Hope you enjoyed it, as it may be a bit before the next one.
