      come with patience.. A LOT OF IT! for the parade, show up like 30 min - 1 hour before and just walk down the parade rote for any open spots. There's usually a few open spots in front of IASW.
      and plaza inn is pretty good.. i guess it could be "fast food" but the quality is good. if you want upscale food with the $$$ price tag, the Carthay Circle at DCA or Blue Bayou in NOS

        And if you want to see the parade with vip seating, do the Holiday Tour. This tour includes padded seats for the parade. You don't have to wait a long time for the great seat.

            Small World Holiday definitely can't be missed. Without a doubt it's the best part of the holidays to me, especially at night.

            The Hungry Bear Restaurant is fast food but it always tastes pretty good when I eat there.

              For waiting for the parade, you can usually find spots by It's a Small World. You can find spots along the way with only maybe 15 mins if you look. But don't expect to walk up where people have been waiting for hours and expect them to move for you.

              As for places to eat, we really like Cafe Orleans and Carnation cafe.
              If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

                Gosh what a generous spirit... I'm guessing you could figure out what the OP was asking.

                As for tips about Disneyland at Christmas... waiting a while for the parade is worth the investment of your time. I think Zocalo, Cafe Orleans and for Breakfast, The Carnation Cafe are all decent food choices.

                Since the park gets pretty crowded on Christmas, patience is definitely the key.

                    Didn't say I didn't understand it. Just don't feel like having to decode it. It does not take that much longer or more effort to type out the words to, for etc. Misspellings/mistyping we all make them.

                    And a tip for you: There is never a need for name calling. I didn't insult anyone or call anyone names and expect the same back.

                        Well in defense of the OP, they may have been posting from their mobile phone and hence, the "code" persay. However, on the other hand, I always double check posts that I make from my mobile whether they be onto Facebook or wherever. I hate looking like I didn't care to put a little time into what I wanted to say.

                        However, as someone else said..bring lots of patience, it will be crowded.

                        Ta Da!

                          Howdy Pards,

                          The key to enjoying Disneyland at Christmastime...truly enjoying it...is the same as it is at any other time of the year. It's not something in the park...it's something in YOU. The key is found in your own attitude.

                          To my way of thinking...first and foremost you MUST believe in the magic. Soak it in...you'll find beauty, wonder, enchantment all around you. Watch some three year old run up and hug his or her favorite character. Look at their eyes.

                          Watch a youngun look up at that Christmastree in absolute awe and wonder.

                          Listen to the sounds of Christmas...the music...the carolers.



                          Now, this may seem simple...but, let me tell ya, some folks come with attitudes just like Ebenezer Scrooge...even though wonderous music is playing all around them...all they hear is loud, crying kids...all they see is crowds of people...noisy...people. All they feel is the pain when that stroller hits their ankles...

                          You are the key to having a wonderful experience at Disneyland. Come prepared to block out anything negative and to celebrate...to savor the magic you can find here if you look.

                          The parade is worth getting there early to enjoy. I remember the colors, the sounds, the gasps of joy and enchantment, the anticipation...and the faces of the young ones and the old.

                          Some old faces haven't smiled much over the years...yet here those giggles return at the sight of Donald and Daisy in a one horse open sleigh. Tears too, sometimes...happy memories of Christmas past.

                          Don't look at Disneyland as a race to the rides...look at it as so much more than that. There is beauty and enchantment all around you. Find joy in the simple things...like a cup of hot chocolate and a cookie...or the enchanting moment in time when the lights come on along Main Street. Savor the smells...

                          Let your heart be light. Or...as Peter Pan says..."Think of the happiest things...it's the same as having wings."

                          To find joy and happiness here...simply open up your heart and believe in magic.

                          Twas Tinkerbell who once said, "You don't have to understand...just believe!"

                          Have a very Merry Christmas...and remember the wise words of a lady named Teresa Langdon...

                          "Believe as a child believes and the magic will find you."

                          Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

                            ok so parade, i don't like to camp out, but i got same problem i can't see as i am short, so i'd say camp out in the front for the parade if you want best view.There really is no other way then to camp out at lest 1/2 hour before parade starts..

                            also DL .. dont' eat there, eat in DCA or there is a mimi's across the street on harbor.

                                So, what's the Blue Bayoo like at Christmastime? Does Santa and his reindeer fly across the moonlit sky?

                                Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

                                  I almost always watch the parade in Town Square, usually from the flag pole area. I like the way that the parade floats circle the area, giving me more than one opportunity to see them, and get pictures.
