The house from "Up" made an appearance in front of the parks this morning. Luckily, I didn't start crying like I did in the movie.

Trying to pull out the sword in the stone.
The line for It's A Small World After All was too long.
The next 2 pictures are super special. Before leaving for Disneyland, I looked up a schedule of events for the parks and I noticed the words "Jedi Training Academy." I knew Chris would dig this. I sent him the link and he was SUPER excited...until he read it was only for kids up to age 11. Huge bummer.
After leaving Space Mountain, we stumbled upon the event. We stopped to watch and I am so glad we did. The Jedi Master (I don't know the verbage) trained the huge group of kids (each in cloak and with light saber) in preparation for their battle with the Dark Side, Darth Vader.
Darth Vader made a grand appearance and performed a ligh saber battle with each Padawan in training. Adorable. The cheesy dialogue between the Master and Darth was hilarious and the kids were so into it.We waited in line to meet Minnie in front of her house. She had to take a potty break so I snapped this photo.
Minnie has a very small house compared to her main squeeze, Mickey. His house was massive. Minnie had a bedroom and a kitchen. That's it. At least the laundry room was in Mickey's house.
We get to the part of the story where I stalked princesses. No princesses were harmed in the capturing of these photos.
You see, the line to meet the princesses was long, just like every other line that day. They have all the princesses in one meet and greet section so that little kids can meet them all at once. Good for the little kids, bad for the grown ups who also want to say hi to Ariel and Cinderella but don't want to wait in line.
Well, good thing princesses have to take a break too. And good thing we realized that we can stand in the gift shop next door, post up on the wall and snap photos of them as they leave to have a smoke break....errr, I mean potty break.
And so ends Day 3 of Disneyland 2009. We went back Monday night but left the camera at the hotel. We saw the fireworks show which was great. It was a preview of their summer spectacular show. Main Street was packed with people. We were standing on the left side of the main square area, on the left side of the castle. I thought we had a good location until the fireworks started. And then realized that a group of trees blocked our view of the low set of fireworks. Goody.
Not all of them were blocked but we really couldn't get a great view of the entire show. Make sure you are standing on the right side of the castle, on the Tomorrowland Side of Disneyland and not on the Frontierland side of Disneyland.
We rode a few rides that night and got back to the hotel at midnight. It was an exhausting day. Literally because I sucked the exhaust of 20 buses while waiting for our shuttle to pick us up. Barf.
