Today called for rain throughout the day.
And sure enough, we did get some rain.
Because of the threat of rain, I almost didn't want to come to the Disneyland Resort. I was still in bed, snoozing my alarms. As I lay in my warm bed, I thought I would just wait till the next day when it's sunny, but shortly after I realized that I can't go the next day as I have some stuff going on.
Got out of bed, showered, ready, and quickly rushed out the door, was briskly walked to the Disneyland Resort
Hardly anyone going into Disney California Adventure. And this is like 10 minutes before the Park opens
Anaheim police in da house!
No trolley today positioned in the middle of Buena Vista Street
Work continues on the Cove Bar expansion
Taking a ride aboard Mickey's Fun Wheel
Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters testing continues
The area that had shelves of plus inside Treasures of Paradise is now catering to Mickey and Minnie Mouse merchandise
These windows used to display "Luigi's Flying Tires"
Now they display "Luigi's Casa Della Tires"
In front of the Hyperion Theater, Cast Members were handing out FastPass tickets for the next show (in this case, the first show) performance of Aladdin A Musical Spectacular
Leaving Disney California Adventure and heading into Disneyland
As I grab a times guide, there is instructions on how to pre-register for the Jedi Training Trials of the Temple.
A sign at the Tomorrowland Terrace stage indicated that pre-registration is locaded at the Launch Bay exit
Walking around Disneyland to kill time until the 10:30 a.m. Trials of the Temple performance
Crews were trying to dry the Tomorrowland Terrace stage as fast as they could for the 10:30 am performance.
The clothes inside the Bonanza Outfitters has been replaced with Christmas ornaments
If only I had a quarter, I so would have played this
By this point, the skies turned gray as a big heavy cloud was directly over us.
And sure enough ... rain!
It rained for probably like 5 minutes. At one point, really coming down.
I guess all that hard work of trying to dry the Tomorrowland Terrace was all for nothing.
After about 5 minutes, the rained stopped. And everyone came out of hiding
A line outside the Adventureland River Belle Terrace entrance for breakfast
A line spilling out the door of the River Belle Terrace Frontierland side
Even after the rain, Peter Pan's Flight had a massive long line
Participants and their parents are gathered back at the exit of the Launch Bay.
Soon they will be told that the 10:30 a.m. performance has been canceled
Registration is still talking place, for later show performances
As it was getting a bit chilly, I continued inside the Star Wars Launch Bay to warm up a bit.
It's almost time for the 11:30 a.m. performance
So I make my way down to the stage and hang out.
With the Cast Members drying the stage and some help from Mr. Sunshine, the stage looked to be dry enough for the 11:30 a.m. performance.
After some time, they open the ropes for viewers to enter the floor.
And so it begins...
In this new show based off of Star Wars Rebels, the Jedi Students, along with the Jedi Master and Jedi Apprentice are led to a sacred place.
To a mysterious temple that produced fears of those who face it.
In order to reveal the temple, the force must be used.
Who are these cloaked people that lead the little Padawans?
Neddras (I have no idea how her name is spelled) leads the young Padawans
"Oh dear, why did I have that breakfast burrito so close to show time?"
"Maybe if I just concentrate and not think about it, everything will be fine."
" ... or maybe not."
"What was that?"
I hope that was the last of it"
"If I just clinch ..."
"Did you just do what I think you did?"
"Yes. I didn't think you'd notice"
"But I promise, that will be the last one. Until after performance, because after that I gotta jet it to the little girls room"
The moves of the Jedi
Of course, young Padawans will practice their own move.
The young Padawans receive their lightsabers
These new lightsabers are light-years better than the previous collapsible kind
Everyone was tuned towards the audience and Nedras except for this young one.
Neddras ties will all her might to reveal the temple
Everyone must clear their mind, and picture the temple, and raise their hands to lift it up
Let the Force flow through you.
Jedi Master reminds that the Temple reveals fears and that those fears are not real. Only seem real.
And you must be willing to face your fears, to be tested.
Nedras mentioned earlier how she has nightmares of Darth Maul.
Just then, fear starts to appear
Appears in the form of Darth Vader
Students, do not fear. There are a many of them, but only one of him
That is, until someone else decides to show up
The Seventh Sister, hunter of the Jedi
If you join us, you too can look gorgeous in black
By the Power of Greyskull!
Vader instructs the Seventh Sister to trade spots
"You think you can deaf me?
The Master of all Evil!"
Vader - 1
Child - 0"
Oh sorry kid, better luck next time.
I can't wait to hear you scream
This little droid, here to defeat me?
Something is wrong.
Why are they still here?
In order to defeat them, to remain calm and lay down the lightsabers.
Use the force to push them back
We are not afraid!
We are not afraid!
What if they come back.
I am not laying down my weapon
Anything can come out that temple.
...Darth Maul, Sith outcast
Because he's her nightmare, she thinks in order to defeat him, she must fight
Fear is making him more dangerous
Fear leads to anger
Anger leads to hate
Neddras begins to give into the Dark Side
In order to to save herself, everyone must tell her to stop
Darth Maul is only here because of her.
As there is nothing in the temple
It's all in her mind
As she begins to get cocky, she thinks she has defeater Darth Maul and starts to loose focus
Darth Maul reappears
Using the Force, everyone pushes Darth Maul back inside the temple
The future Jedi
It's almost 1 pm.
Because of that, I am late for the Aladdin FastPass
Oh well, I'll catch it again
Just like Dumbo, I'm gonna fly on outta here
That will conclude this weeks pictorial
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out

Until Next Time....
