  • What Christmas plans are in the works for Disneyland?

    Well we are starting the daily planning for our Christmas family trip. I was wondering if anyone had any clues where I could find info on special events, decorations, etc. planned for this December. I think it was DarkBeer back a few months ago that was talking about really decorating the Castle this year.

    Also what are your Christmas traditions when you go to Disneyland? Are there special treats? places? We discovered the Reindeer and Santa last year and that was wonderful.

    Thanks for the help!

    Your signature just reminded how close Christmas is... and how many things I need to knit (10 pairs of socks and 7 washclothes).

    My bestest holiday treat is the cookie decorating and chocolate milk

      Yes, I remember reading about the castle too. I've heard they're doing it for sure at WDW, so I hope they do it here too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Reportedly, Sleeping Beauty Castle will be covered in icicles and snow this holiday season.

                Cookie decorating? Is that available in the park? The kids would love it. As for the knitting...10 pairs of socks??? That is the one thing I could never do on knitting needles. Would love to see pictures???
                thanks

                  That is what I remember hearing. The kids are so excited! I brought out last years photo album to remind them of what it looked like. They LOVED the snow after the fireworks. It really is a magical place to be during the holidays. So anyone else have ideas for what we can do at the parks, hotel (we are staying at the Grand Californian ), or DTD???

                    OK, I don't remember seeing Santa Goofy or Pluto the rein-dog last year?? That would be a great picture! I loved the trees and the ornaments it was just so festive. Other than the Santa and Reindeer area are there other "holiday" special photo ops that anyone knows of???

                      Well if they would put Santa/Goofy back at the flagpole where he belongs....

                      (And please don't tell me how all that stuff belongs over at the reindeer area....it's no trouble to toss a sled and Goofy over near the flagpole, and still keep all the other stuff over at the reindeer place)

                      Other Christmas wishes:

                      1. A fatter tree. Last year's was too thin, and you could see thru it.
                      2. The 2nd Christmas Parade should return to 7:45 pm, or at least 7:30 pm, so that it's easier to get better seats.

                      And, I believe the Resort will do just that.

                          I'm looking forward to the castle being covered in snow. Hopefully they go through with it...

                            OK, I have to agree on having more photo ops around the park. When everything is in one area than that area gets over filled. Spreading it around would be really nice. How about a spaceship sleigh and a astro santa in TL, and a Fantasy Santa in FL, it would be fun to have a Santa for each theme area. Last year there was a gian snowglobe in front of the castle. It had a step stool behind it and a curtain. Now what a photo op that would have been. Hubby said no to the inside but did pose with the gang next to it.



                            Having never seen the tree before last year I have to say it was wonderful. Maybe getting one that tall makes it hard to get one fuller. We are going to have 6 days there so we are hoping to get good seats at least one pass of the parade. Thanks for your thoughts

                              We found the snowglobe, but I don't remember seeing the Happy New Year sign. I take it you like the holidays at the park?
