Dapper Day At Disneyland: Part 2 - Tom Sawyer Island, The Dapper Derby & Miscellaneous
It's time for Part 2 of Dapper Day at Disneyland! (to see Part 1, click here) After "The Mark Twain Mixer", people headed over to Tom Sawyer Island for "Island Escapades." This dapper guest was dressed like Becky Thatcher.
The raft dock didn't ever get as crowded as the Mark Twain dock. I think some of the people skipped the island meet. Maybe they didn't want to get their dapper duds dirty?
Now we're back on the mainland and hanging out in New Orleans Square.
Sampling a fragrance at Madamemoiselle Antoinette's Parfumerie.
Dapper Day attendee Doug Marsh, brought a bag of vintage Disneyland props for some fun photo-ops.
More dapper groups....
A very dapper couple....
Dapper photo bomb!
Merrily, merrily, merrily on their way to nowhere in particular!
These guests wanted to ride the Skyway.....and Nature's Wonderland Mine Train....oh, and Adventure Thru Inner Space....AND THE PEOPLEMOVER!
Now it was time for the "Dapper Derby." Everyone met at King Arthur's Carousel at 7:00.
These dapper guests have their "A" coupons ready.
They were shocked when the cast member wouldn't take their tickets.
Another dapper guest was surprised to find out that the entire Disneyland "ticket system" was eliminated over 30 years ago.
Waiting in line to ride.....
I have to say that I wasn't terribly happy with the quality of these Carousel pics. Many of my Carousel photos from the last Dapper Day ("An Evening Affair") came out blurry, so this time I set the camera on the "action/sport" setting. Well, many of them still came out blurry and the ones that weren't blurry came out kind of grainy. Maybe I'll eventually learn how to take flawless pics with my camera....or maybe I'll get a better camera!
Goodbye Dapper Day....see you again in the Fall!
Here is the information for the upcoming Fall 2012 event. Meet-up times will be announced on the Dapper Day website (DapperDay.com) this summer.
Oops, I forgot to post the video that I took of one of the go-arounds on the Carousel, so here it is. Unfortunately, it's not very clear either! You might want to just skip it and watch the two "professional" videos below it!
This is a wonderfully edited video of all the day's activities from YouTube user "renrenataren."
And here's another excellent video by YouTube user "pizzaplanettruck."
