  • PHOTO UPDATE 10/20: DreamSigns, new Holiday merch and set-up, Midway Mania, +MORE

    A quick update.

    WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND!
    The Disneyland Resort marquees around the Resort are becoming "dreamy" -




    We normally park in Timon, but around 4pm when we arrived, the full and closed, so we were directed to Mickey & Friends. We got sent all the way up to the top of the structure, Minnie's Level. The rest of the structure was packed. It was a busy, busy day at Disneyland.

    A look at the wait board inside Disneyland - it seemed a bit off - Buzz Lightyear was at least a 30-minute wait as extended queue was nearly full all the way back to the Ariel's Grotto photo-op:


    New kiosks providing a variety of international maps have been set up near the wait time board:


    And at the entry tunnels, too:


    They've also added them to the DCA information booth as well:





    New HalloweenTime banners were added along the DCA turnstiles:








    RIVER BELLE TERRACE
    Back in Disneyland, work continues on the River Belle Terrace:


    A new set of stairs is being added to the River Belle:


    This small area has gotten partially dug out...



    GETTING READY FOR CHRISTMAS
    Back over in DCA, some Christmas lights are already up on San Francisco Street:




    MIDWAY MANIA
    A couple looks at Midway Mania construction




    Look at detail back there! It's unprecedented in DCA!



    CHRISMTAS MERCH GALORE!
    It's Christmas already in the Resort gift shops. Lots of holiday merch styles from last year are back, so here's a look at what's new this year:

    World of Disney's first and second rooms are full of Christmas stuff:







    New Ear Hats:


    A gift-card holder. It's cheap-looking, but it isn't supposed to be fancy, and it's only $3.


    Clip magnet:


    Holiday flag - $15:


    New Christmas cards - $14:






    Peppermint bark - $3:


    New pens - $4/each:


    New "Where Dreams Come True" ornaments




    Mickey & Minnie ornaments ($16/each):


    JOY door/wall decoration - $16


    Tree countdown - $36


    New sweater - $28


    Women's Minnie holiday slippers - $20:


    Pajama pants - $32:


    Embroidery detail:


    Votives - $22:


    New holiday shirt, available in children ($17) and adult sizes ($20)




    ....And finally, billboards near the security checks announce the holiday season which begins November 16.

                Brilliant, a color scheme that camouflages with the sky and the blue-lettered names of the parks. Good thing the marquee doesn't tell you anything important.

                "Dear, didn't you read the sign back there?"

                "What sign?"

                MG and I were discussing that the "reindeer Dumbo" will probably be the commercial icon of choice for both WDW and DLR this year. Last year, if you remember, it was the snowman. Personally I think Dumbo is alright, but perhaps a pachyderm is not as evocative of the holidays as the snowman was.

                Furthermore, we both thought the snowman would be a perfect match for the magical Sleeping Beauty Castle transformation into an icicle palace this year - and speaking of which, so far that aspect of this year's holiday season hasn't been played up too much in the advertising, if at all. Although the castle will assuredly be featured in the park map, it would be awesome if the "snow fortress" is under-hyped, so that the castle can shine on its own brilliant accord, unblemished by the curse of heightened expectations.

                The merch is sorta ho-ho-hum, nothing stood out to me as a must-buy, but then I'm a pretty picky shopper, even for Christmas presents for people other than myself. Bah! :sleep:

                      The morning of Dec. 25, all of that Holiday-themed merchandise will be 15% off.

                      I wonder when they'll have the Happy New Year merchandise, out?

                            I like the ball ornaments with white ears.
                            Pretty nice.

                              I was at the resort on Saturday too! I left around around 1:30 because I had to and sensed that parks were going were going to be very busy. But I went on Screamin around 12:00 (which already have 5 trains running) and got a glimpse at the Midway building twice. The roofline work and details are absolutely wonderful. Some of the roof's backsides have the roof tiles on them and they are very intricate. They building is going to be wonderful.

                                Woo-Hoo! Christmas merch is starting to arrive. Thanks for showing it. I need to make a shopping list for my good buddy who does my Disneyland shopping for me. This really helps. The Tinkerbell cards are from previous years (I saw them in WDW in 2004), but those other 2 look new to me.

                                  I can't believe it. It's not even Halloween. Christmas creeps in earlier and earlier each year. In a few years, they will have new Christmas merch out in June.

                                    Ah, thanks for the info about the cards. I didn't remember them, so I assumed they were new.... guess not!

                                      No problem. I bought a set last year, that's probably part of the reason I remember them so well. With all the christmas merch it would be real easy to forget an item or 2. I love seeing pictures of the ornaments. Keep those coming as the new ones arrive over the next month.
