I can’t get enough of Buena Vista Street, guys.
Also my kid can’t get enough of saying the word “guys.” It’s terrible, really, the things you hear coming out of your 3 and 1/2 year old’s mouth. Luckily so swear words, yet. We were at the park this weekend (a neighborhood park, not The Park) and Theo kept going up to all of the other little kids asking, “Do you want to be my best friend?” When he finally got a taker, another little kid his age, he kept calling this other kid “Orange Shirt Guy.” Like “Hey, Orange Shirt Guy! Want to go down the slide together?” or “Follow me, Orange Shirt Guy!” I honestly could not believe my ears. Neither could the woman next to me, who was like, “Did he just say ‘Orange Shirt Guy’?” and naturally she turned out to be OSG’s mother. So I felt obligated to keep calling out, “Honey! His name is Thomas!” but really I was secretly proud of how hilarious my child is.
Clearly a visual learner, as another friend pointed out.
Also, did you know that you can neatly fold down your popcorn box at Disneyland?
So maybe I’m the last person to find that out, but it pretty much blew my mind.
I learned this from a cast member when I boarded the Red Car Trolley.
With all the lights on
No eating or drinking in the trolley. And if you have a box of popcorn, you now know how to fold it up.
I haven’t had much luck getting on the Trolley. Well obviously I had SOME luck or I couldn’t have taken these pictures.
But I’ve really only been able to ride it once. Which is a bit disappointing since it’s so cool.
The trolley goes from Buena Vista Street through Hollywoodland to the Tower of Terror, and obviously back again. I hopped aboard this one at the Tower of Terror stop.
More high-quality photography
The trolley does not go very fast. Obviously, since it would just mow people down right and left and how embarrassing would that be? There is a person who walks in front of it getting people out of the way.
I didn’t realize this until after I took this picture, but it looks like the scooter is beating the trolley.
I can’t remember exactly, but I’m pretty sure the trolley was not actually moving in that picture.
The trolley is something you ride for the experience of riding it. You could absolutely walk to any of its destinations much faster than riding there, but there is something special and kind of cool about taking the oldey-timey transportation down Buena Vista Street.
Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE this new entrance to California Adventure? I love it.
