SHOW NOTES Episode 09 Dixie Kings, Push, DL Band, Hotel Plaza Boulevard postcards, and Before There even WAS Podacsting...

Having had such a long day the day before I was pretty happy that we were still able to get up and get into the park by shortly after 9 AM.

As we came into Town Square the Main Street Marching band was already part way into their 9am set. As Carlene saw this she let me know she was going to browse a few of the Main Street shops while I did my thing, so, I pulled out my Mini-Disk recorder and found a spot near the band where I took a few photos while I recorded them.

A few minutes after the concert ended Carlene walked back up and we started towards our first attractions of the day, we still hadn't tried one of the Fantasyland attractions I wanted to view the most the Storybookland Canal boats, I figured this would also be a hit with Carlene if for no other reason than the plants visible from the ride. As we got in line for the attraction a monorail started to pull up alongside the Matterhorn, I had tried to get a few photos of one the previous day, as we stood in Line for the Alice in Wonderland attraction, but I like this shot better.

I told Carlene as we approached this attraction that although it had been almost twenty-four years since I had been to Disneyland it was likely closer to 30 years since I had been on this ride, because of the " that's for little kids" factor, this attraction would have had when I was last at Disneyland at the age of thirteen. This time around though Carlene and I did enjoy it.

As we passed the Cinderellas Castle scene of the Storybookland canal boats we heard a cock chiming, I figured it for a sound effect relating to the fact that Cinderella had to leave the ball by midnight, and didn't pay close attention to it, but when I mentioned it to Carlene, she thought right away of the clock at It's A Small World. I still wasn't sure but it was the next thing I wanted to check out, since I had not been able to get video of the quarter-hour ceremony yet this trip as I had wanted to.
