Way Out West - Day 6 – Disneyland
Today was Magic Morning (extra magic hours) which meant the park opened to Disney Hotel guests at 7:00. I had decided that I didn’t want to be up and out that early but even so we were both up by 7:00 and out by 7:30.
Thanks to the compactness of the resort we were inside the park within minutes and soon walking up Main Street, which was already starting to seem familiar. Just for a laugh we poked our heads into Tomorrowland to see what the queue was like for Finding Nemo. We took one look at the queue, didn’t bother looking at the wait time and turned back towards Fantasyland.
The plan for today was to tick off the rides that are not at WDW so with that in mind first stop was Alice in Wonderland, which had a posted wait time of 10 minutes. Sure enough around 10 minutes later we were on. This is a combination dark ride and outside ride which takes you through Alice’s adventures in Wonderland.
From Alice we made our way round to Mr Toad’s Wild Ride, which was also around a 10 minute wait. This was one of the few rides I remember from my first visit to WDW in 1992 and I always remember being quite surprised that I could see the track that the car was running along.
From Mr Toad we went round to Casey Jr’s Circus Train which is a cutesy train ride along the lines of Big Thunder Mountain railroad at a snail’s pace.
After our train trip we went round to Pinocchio’s Daring Journey, which is your typical Disney dark ride in the same league as Snow White.
By now the time was still only around 8:30 and the only thing we hadn’t been on was the Storybookland Canal Boats, which had a large queue and only seemed to have two boats running so we left that and did Snow White’s Scary Adventure. We also had a look at Peter Pan’s Flight but that also had a large queue so we left Fantasyland and headed off towards Frontierland.
On the way I spotted that Pirates of the Caribbean had only a 5 minute wait time so we rode that and found it pretty similar to WDW. Next ride ticked off the list was Pooh and from there we went to Haunted Mansion. The one thing I noted here was that it is easy to tell the difference between how the “stretching room” effect is done here to how it is done in Disney. Some of you may know the difference and some may not want the illusion spoiled so I won’t say any more.
