WHEN: December 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2001 11/2001 An new Disneyland Trip! Man I still have a hard time believing that it's been over 4 years since we last went... after going 4 times in 1997. Well part of the blame goes towards having enough money to make 2 trips to Europe, including Disneyland Paris, and 1 trip to WDW just last May. A large part of the blame goes to the Disney Corporation itself tho. After our last trip, while Tomorrowland was still being made over, I was looking forward to all the new stuff they were gonna put in. The Rocket Rods,... uh Honey..hmm guess that was it. Then I heard from some friends that the Rods were kinda lame, Innoventions was boring (I figured on that), and that the music on Space Mountain wasn't working. Lost all interest in going. Then whenever I began thinking of going, I would think about all the other new things they've put in...Hmmmm the Tree-house redo...well they closed a bunch of stuff anyway! No more Subs, no more Rocket Rods (boohoo), no more Bear Show or Keel Boats. But there's a whole new park next door! Well the reviews of that haven't been very good either... My little brother and sister went over the summer and thought it was boring. I'll reserve judgement. One bummer about it is that they destroyed our shortcut to the park from the el-cheapo motels on Katella. Well that's why we haven't gone in 4 years. Why are we going now?

It's been over 4 years!!! The other deciding factor was to see the Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Mansion Overlay which HAS been getting rave reviews (having a hard time keeping several friends from spoiling it for us!). This'll be the first time down since we got the Elph so no picture scanning needed! I'll have the pics up a couple days after we get home. I also want to see DCA for myself.

Kel Aran and I are going down to San Diego to see her Dad first then we're meeting up with the Jackson-Healys on Sunday. This'll be the first time since October of 1996 that we'll be driving. A combination of not wanting to deal with the Airport hassle, wanting to have our car in San Diego, and Kel getting Dot-commed last month contributed to this decision. So now this Pre-Trip report has gone on longer than many of my earlier slideshow's entire report... can you say run-at-the-mouth? See ya in 2 weeks!

Update 12-1-01: We're in Ramona now for 2 days before Disneyland and I'm posting some info at midnight after drinking too much at my father-in-law's. We drove down from Concord and made it here to Ramona (502 miles) in 7.5 hours. Going to Mount Palomar and the Wild Animal park tomorrow then on the D-Land on Sunday. Built Stonehenge in the backyard... Thistles are evil...
More to follow!

Update 12-3-01: Here's More. We skipped the Wild Animal Park as we got a late start. Mount Palomar was tres cool. We went instead to a little museum near a battle site then to one in downtown Ramona. Then Big-Meat for dinner. We said our good-byes Sunday morning around 10:00 and made it to our hotel by 12:30 (made a stop at Circuit City so Aran could buy more memory for his camera).

Update 12-8-01 We're back and had a blast! No the pics aren't up yet but should be by the end of the week. Gotta scale'em and slap on a copywrite as well as create the thumbnails. Then I've got to write up clever little descriptions for each one. Unlike the WDW trip section, I'll not be doing a full trip report... I didn't keep a journal, nor did I feel I needed to on this sorta mellow trip. Did I mention I took 309 pictures! Just at the Disneyland Resort, and not counting the dozen or so I took in San Diego (to be located in the Travel Adventure Section. If you want a pretty full description of the trip you'll have to go through the slideshow. I plan on discarding about a dozen pics which just didn't come out well, and there were about 25 that were actually taken for making 2 Quicktime VRs so the total should be around 260-275. I'll know more later this week.

To hold you over until then, here are some Highlights,Lowlights,Opinions and Ponderables about our Dec. 2001 Disneyland trip.

Whew.. so much for no trip report...One last note about this page: Unlike all the other slideshow indexes I have for my Dland trips, this one will NOT include thumbnails and links to all the pics. Putting 250+ on one page would cause it to take 2 hours to load on a T1 connection. Instead It will display 1 in 10 as thumbnails and just the one-line description and link to the others. As always, all the thumbnails will appear in their respective lands. (which could cause me to redistribute and branch off some lands like I did Fantasyland...

Update 12-16-01 The pics are up as well as 2 VRs! Because there were so many pics I rewrote part of my page generator so that only 1 in 7 thumbnails show up on this page. If you wanna see all the thumbnails you'll have to go to the land pages.
The slideshow is in chronological order.
