a Taj MuttHall Dog Diary: Disneyland!

Saturday, November 07, 2009


SUMMARY: We've been here two full days now--

One more full day to go, then a few hours Sunday morning, then home again, home again, jiggity jog.

I love being at Disneyland! So much to see and do, and even if I come every couple of years (which I've been doing for a long time), it's still a wonderfantabulous experience. I like just walking around and looking and being there.

Plus taking photos. Unfortunately I've discovered that my old laptop's software doesn't recognize my new camera's raw format, so I've got nothing to upload here at the moment.

And we've done so much, it's hard to shrink it to a quick post. We've done several things more than once each: Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan, Astro Blaster. I've done a token Indiana Jones and Matterhorn and don't need to do those again this trip. We've sailed the Rivers of American in both the Mark Twain and the sailing ship Columbia. We've explored the pirate's cave on Tom Sawyer's Island. Had lunch at the Blue Bayou. And so much more!

Tomorrow we'll hit California Adventure until it closes (3 hours earlier than Disneyland, I believe) or until we run out of things we want to do over there (possibly way before closing).

And tomorrow for crying out loud I'll remember my tripod finally (I promise, really I will) and finally get some of those night shots I've been trying to get hand-held and some that I know I can't get hand-held.

And when I get home--hundreds of photos to sort through (already) as usual. AFTER i've worn out the dogs and taken them for a long walk, presumably.

In honor of the fact that I'm not leaving for USDAA Nationals in the next couple of days, I've worn two of my USDAA Grand Prix of Dog Agility Championships polo shirts. It's all about the clothing, you know!


  1. Glad you are having a good time. How are the crowds? When I was there, sometimes the crowds got stifling.

    Enjoy your days of vacation! Sure will miss you in AZ this year! Vici

  2. Crowds weren't bad at all. We think it's because it's sort of a non-week: Halloween events ended last week, full Christmas stuff won't be up until the 13th. Thursday and Friday were extremely light days, Saturday wasn't bad. Today (Sunday) was definitely more crowded--longest line I've seen for Pirates in several trips, but we were outa there around noon, so it still wasn't overwhelming. They were filming a Christmas special Saturday & Sunday, so getting around in some places was tough because they had things roped off, but mostly we were fine.

    Hope everyone drives safely to & from Scottsdale.
