    Well that should prove interesting! What will happen when it gets warm? I'm sure it won't reach low enough temps to keep ice frozen. Then again, I'm sure they will figure out a way to keep the ice frozen.

    Sounds like fun though! I haven't ice skated since I was 15!

    Ta Da!

      There has been a seasonal ice rink at the Irvine Spectrum Center for years, with no problems with melting ice.

        i would love to see and do this! especially once the village is set up. the only thing for me is that they say helmets and wrist guards are required to skate; i hope this is only for the kids.

        "oh, i just love happy endings!"

          Has there?! That is very cool. I'm from Inland Empire so I had no idea they did this. Well, I'm excited to see it.

          Its funny because I went to my first hockey game last friday night. It was minor league hockey but still SUCH a fun sport to watch. Then I won the raffle at work for seats ON the ice for Saturday opening season game. My kid is so excited. But wow does it gets cold in that rink...I am bringing gloves, scarves and beanies for saturday! So I can understand that they will have ways to keep ice frozen.

          Ta Da!

            Outdoor ice rinks are frozen from below (hence the crazy amount of tubing). With expected cold weather this year in Anaheim/OC/LA, an Ice Rink sounds great!

              Will it be a real ice rink or one of those synthetic ice rinks? They had a synthetic one at a resort here in southern Arizona a couple years ago. It used wax or something.

                I, personally, hate ice skating because I'm so terrible at it so constantly feel like I'm going to fall... but THIS would make me give it another shot! I hope I can make a trip out there while it's up!

                  I LOL'd at the concept of a wax ice rink. That would be interesting to see.

                    Was wondering what they were setting up outside of the future Earl of Sandwich last weekend. Pretty cool (no pun intended)

                      Right? We had never heard of it before. Our daughter gave it a go and enjoyed herself but she did get some waxy/oily marks on her clothes. If you Google "synthetic ice rink" or "wax ice rink" you will see what I'm talking about.

                      I hope Disney gets real ice.

                        Any idea on how it's going to be run? Do you make reservations, wait in line, bum rush it? I wonder what the cost will be...

                          We were told that it would be around until Feburary, the rink is small and it looks like it is real ice, they even have a zamboni.

                            They used to have ice skating at the Disneyland Hotel marina. It should be fine as long as there isn't a winter heat wave. We're actually supposed to have one of the wettest winters in recent history. Luckily the rink looks like it'll be covered.

                                  all the weather sites, you would see conflicting info, alot of it. I hope we do get a nice wet winter. Seems we got stiffed for the past 2 winters.

                                  Either way, this small rink will add a nice xmas-y touch! Thx mouseknotts for adding your pics!

                                    Looks pretty good, and probably will look better when the construction equipment leaves.
                                    But like everything else Disney recently, it'll be overpriced for the skate times.
                                    I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                                      We have a couple of outdoor ice rinks in San Diego every year. There's even one at the Hotel Del Coronado. You are actually ice skating overlooking the beach! It's real ice, nothing synthetic about it.

                                        Got another great picture of the rink on Sunday. It looks all set up and it was refreshingly cool to stand next to the rink in the 95+ heat that was on Sunday.
