December 18, 2013 - How my trip to Arendelle ended up being a trip to Asgard...

Before I left Disneyland for this trip, I really wanted to go visit Anna and Elsa at the Frozen Royal Reception in Fantasyland.  When I first met them, I hadn't seen the film.  So, I wanted to drop by to say hello now that they were more meaningful to me.  I got in line around 10:30 am, which was a half hour before they opened up the gate (THE GATE!!!  For the first time in forever...oops...I got distracted) and the line was already 2 hours long.  Then, one of the cast members informed us that Elsa was away on urgent business and that it would only be Anna meeting.  Now, don't get me wrong, Anna is actually my favorite of the two, but, given the amount of time I had in the park, I decided not to wait just for Anna.  I'm hoping when I go again in a couple of weeks that the line will be a little less insane.

So, given that my audience with the royalty of Arendelle was foiled, I decided to say hello to Thor, son of Odin and future King of Asgard.

If I haven't said it before, I'll say it now...I am really impressed with the meet-and-greet they created for Thor and has to be the most elaborate one I've ever seen them build for a character a Disneyland.  I might be wrong, but I can't think of anything.  Heck, compared to the other royalty at Disneyland, Thor definitely has the most elaborate one.
