  • Trip Report The Last Blizzard - AP Holidays and Disneyland's Winter Nights (12/18)

    Oh the crowds last night were frightful.
    T'was the last night of Holiday AP crowds, and boy was it packed! All parade viewing near capacity as early as an hour and a half before showtime. Hour+ lines even during night time entertainment did not help either. But when the snow came down and the fireworks went KABOOM, all was well and peacefull in the Disneyland Resort... [[well, except for Murphy.... he still has issues]]. Disneyland has been making use of their light-up, box-looking signs giving directions to the different lands, and it was ropes galore from 8PM on. Fantasmic water screens were left on after the fireworks for unconfirmed reasons (supposedly dealing with Murphy). Looking on the bright side, I didn't have to use my jacket once with everyone breathing on me.

    We'll start in New Orleans and work our way into fantasyland from there.

    Friday, December 18th was the last day of the Holiday season for all Southern California annual passes.

    Merry Christmas!

    EDIT: If you have a Southern California AP and have yet to visit, you infact have exactly 1 more day of the Holiday season, and that is Sunday, January 3rd. This will be the last day of Disneyland's Christmas festivities. For those with a select pass, you are blocked until Monday, January 4th, the first day of non-christmas season.

          Sorry guys I really wasn't supposed to post my Trip Report until today. It was kind of a jumbled mess, but now I think everything is organized in terms of both pictures and text.

          Tell me if any links are missing. I added about half a dozen more pics, as well as an explanation for last night.

            Goover - I think those are the best shots from you that I've ever seen. Thanks for posting those amazing photos! I LOVE that last shot of the Mickey shells during the fireworks. Great job on these, and thanks for the update. I'm headed in next Tuesday as my sister and family is visiting from out of town. It will be interesting to see how the crowds compare. We went last year during the two week crazy period and it was a zoo.

              Really terrific photos. Love them. I have Deluxe and am planning to go late this afternoon (would go earlier but I'm also committed to attending a baby shower) so I can see Swing Town and Scott Bruce (Elvis) tonight.

              By the way, the young man in the Tiana photo (the one standing to her left, our right) is my former First Grade student Tommy. LOVE that show!

                It must be nice to see your students in DL shows. I know I'd be proud. ^_^

                Btw, Nice TR, Goover! I went last night, too, and wow it was packed! 0_0

                  Your pictures are fantastic! I was also there last night, but we totally missed the parade. It was super crowded, but everyone seemed in really good moods and we had a fun time (aside from the parking situation.) Five gajillion people in the park and I manage to run right into my boss at the reindeer pen! :lol:

                      That sounds awesome! I might be visiting my brother in Arizona for New Years (if infact I decide to decline from my idea of going to DL. It's always been on my checklist of things to do as a Disney freak). I'm glad u like the pics!!! The camera was a Christmas present (well, at least it was supposed to be... until i begged enough for them to wipe off the dust from the desk and hand it to me early !!!)

                      That is so awesome. Are you pretty close? I'm wondering how you would even recognize him...?

                      Yes, it was packed, but at least the crowds were fairly happy. If the fireworks had been cancelled I would have ran for the gates. Luckily it was a very still night, without any warning announcements or anything.

                      I'm not sure if that is a fortunate or unfortunate event? O_o... I hope he/she is nice.

                      4:15 (It was a few minutes late though... so I'm guessing the pics were taken around 4:20ish probably)

                            I know! Yesterday I was at Downtown Disney all day from 6-11 for a concert they were having, and went into Disneyland really fast to get a quick bite to eat. We got trapped on Main Street during the parade and it was seriously so terribly packed! As soon as we got our chimichangas we cut through all the stores to get out; what could've been a 5 minute trip there and back was turned into a 30 minute adventure. At least we got to watch the parade, even though it wasn't intended. Hahaha

                            Great pictures by the way

                              When I got to the parks around 3:50 getting through Main Street during the parade wasn't all that bad. However, I believe the 6:30 performance was a whole different story.

                              I swear when I was leaving at 10PM I was still seeing TONS of people enter the park. Yes, there was even a guest traffic CM in the TUNNEL telling guests to stay to the right and keep moving.

                              Basically, you were told which way to go until you were outside the gates. I think that defines a Mad House if anything O_o....
