OXFORD AND WARWICK
So I think to myself, where to go when it's snowing in Victoria? Someplace warm and dry so I picked Disney. Well whoopsie doodle it twer cold and raining it twas. Still it twer fun. First we stayed at that there Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel and they upgraded us to a giant suite with a living room and everything. This hotel looks like a castle and we stayed in the turret so our bedroom was round. Nifty huh?
Day one was breakfast in the Surly Cafe (otherwise known as the hotel's restaurant). It was full of grim faced, miserable type folks from that there place on the other side of Trumps invisible wall. I guess they just aren't morning folks but jeez louise! They do win for surliest waiters in the world and that includes the ones in Paris.
I digress, so off on the hotel's shuttle (they have 2) we arrived at the Wonderful Wet World of Disneyland. The good news is there were virtually no people there which means you walk on rides, get off, circle around and just walk on again. You also get lots of pictures with cast members as well, nobody's around. We got to hang out with Mickey for quite awhile which never happens
Now we did have a bit of an adventure on the Jungle Cruise. You see the rain gathers on the boats canopies which the staff have to empty out. Little problem is that they empty out on the riders so you get a canopy waterfall down your back (not that you weren't already wet from the rain) but your underpanties feel like you wet yourself for the next few hours (so sticky to my bum were they).
My brother Spookie enjoyed the Haunted Mansion because, well, he's a ghost.
Our main priority of this Disney adventure is to see how much we could spy on the new "Galaxy's Edge" attraction (Star Wars thingy), opening this summer. We found a mural and the model for the new land so here be a sneak peak.
What I didn't expect to find at Disneyland were props and design prints from Mary Poppins Returns. This may have been the highlight of Disneyland for me. Too bad Mary Poppins was the old one and she wouldn't talk about the new Mary no matter how hard I tried. That was kinda sad. Here's some of the props I got to see (if you know where they hid them).
