I was in the Disneyland area yesterday, so I decided to run in real quick and check out a few new things.

After parking in the Downtown Disney lot (3 free hours, 2-4 more with validation.. beware tho' $6/hr.. $36/day,) I walked over to the monorail (hoping to get into one of the new ones.. but nope!)

Got off the monorail and was going to try to see Finding NEmo Submarine ride (havent been there yet) but the line was long. So I went into Innoventions.  Been awhile since I had been in there (like when Rocket Rods was still running) =P

After the annoying intro, I walked in expecting to see more of the same of what it used to be.. but instead they turned the downstairs into a home of the future. It was fun to play with the wall controls, and the HP computers.. but what was weird was the large dining table that had 4 large screens in it. A pond was on each adn you could 'play' with the water. While I was watching, a cast member placed an object on one of the tables and tney all changed into "pixie dust" mode to play with.  It definately looked like a Microsoft Surface demo.

So I walked around a bit more and came into a room that had bunch of standalone tables with the same thing, but all of these had the Microsoft Surface logo in the corner.  I played with the photos (not as fast or as smooth as I would have liked, but still was interesting.. wish I had objects to play with.)  Then I enabled the music app, and got a big smile on my face.  Right there.. Oingo Boingo!  YAY! So I played with that for a couple minutes, the back to the pond (I so wanted to go grab the object from the other part of the exhibit!)

After that I went upstairs. Some nice exhibits, some interesting xbox360 games, did a few interactive things.. was cool. On the way out I saw that they have an actual Honda Asimo there.. but the show wasn't going to be for another 45 minutes and I didn't have much time.. so next time.

I then went on Space Mountain (the new speaker system is cool) and then walked down mainstreet and over to California Adventure (DCA). I walked up and saw lots of people leaving and only one gate open. As I gave the cast member my ticket, she sayd "We close in 10 minutes"  Ouch! So I walked back to Midway Mania hoping to get there nefore they closed... as I hoof never been on it.  I got there and there were to cast members partially blocking the entrance, so I just walked up and pass them... right as the group behind me walked in, they closed the line.  Took about 20 minutes to get into the "car" and unfortunatly Mr. Potato Head wasn't working =(

I was impressed and had fun on the "ride/game"  I got about 138,000 (high scores for the day were in the upper 200,000s', and for the month was around 411,000.  I won a "beaver" for my score.  The seat next to me won a 'turtle" with a score of 0.  I kinda was hoping for a camera and email thing like Buzz Lightyear. =/

As I walked out there was a private party of about 30 people waiting to go in and a lot of security.

I walked back thru DCA to the Grand Californian Hotel.. was kinda wierd walking around by myself with everything closed (but some rides were still running without riders) All I saw was a couple security guards.

I walked out of DCA thru the hotel, and to the car.. free parking! in and out in 3 hours.

Had fun and hope I can go again soon.


Speaking of fun . I am looking forward to the debate tomorrow night.

I did think the nice picture of Palin and her coach behind podiums outside under the trees at McCain's ranch was 'cute'
From the angle that I saw, she could barely see over it.

Oh and VoteForTheMILF.com doesn't direct to Palin's page on McCain's site anymore.  But I did notice (being a moger that is turned on more by HTML than pr0n) that the keywords and description doesn't mention Palin at all. Nope. Cindy McCain is in there, but no Palin. Weird.

I wonder if Sarah Palin is dropped from the ticket after this thursday, who would they get in there? (Cindy? hee hee)

Just wondering what the site will reset to after the debate...
