Walking AROUND Disneyland
Nope, not inside but outside, around the Park! Who's bright idea was that?? Normally, I document my arrival time. Today it's my departure time!
I left the Mickey and Friends parking structure and crossed the street to begin my walk. Here you see the parking structure in the distance and Disneyland is to my right.
I'm including these here because it's not every day you get a shot at the parking structure, right? I mean, you're usually driving by and can't stop to shoot a photo.
This one needs some explaining....behind the screen is a mini nursery.
Lots of plants and pots.
Still walking, still looking back at the parking structure!
I have finally rounded the corner and I am on Ball Road near the Team Disney Building. That is the castmember parking structure you see in the background.
Now we've crossed the street and begin our climb up to the bridge that goes over the 5 freeway.
Do you see it? Do you see the smiley face in the window? Every time I drive by that I crack up!
Now this is the destination I wanted to reach. I hope you guys appreciate this! I am now on Harbor Blvd., looking over to the backstage area...
Still walking on Harbor and in the distance is the backstage area...
Unfortunately there was no way to get a clear shot of the building that houses the Monorails without actually walking on to the freeway on-ramp. I love you guys but not that much!! So, imagine if you will, behind that center palm is where the Monorail sleeps at night. How do I know this? Because one evening as I was getting on the freeway here, I saw Monorail Orange peeking out from the building! That's when I got the crazy idea to walk over here some day to take pictures.
I've left the freeway on-ramp behind me and I am still on Harbor Blvd....
Looking forward, the Disneyland entrance is up ahead. Waaay up ahead.
I've finally reached the bus and tram area and decide to take a 5 minute break in the shade.
Yup, I used to ride one of those every night!
Here comes the Monorail!
After resting a bit, I walk across the esplanade and get on a tram back to the Mickey and Friends parking structure. Look at all the pretty flowers.
Hope you guys enjoyed this!
