  • Photos and Video from 11-16-07 Christmas Parade, Castle Show

    I spent the whole day at Disneyland, I took 325 photos, including the castle effects, Christmas Parade, Reindeer, Santa's Reindeer Roundup and lots of Christmas decorations.
    I took video of the 5:30pm castle show, the music is a remake of Illuminaria, as you can tell from the audio, people loved this light show, the kids all are screaming around me.
    the you-tube video is:

    Believe in Holiday Magic was the same as 2006, no real changes.

    You are welcome, I plan to head back to DL tonight to see the castle show again. I wish Disneyland would have made a new Christmas commercial for 2007 incorporating the new snow effect, this is quite a sight to behold.

    Thank you. Thank you so much for posting the video. This is the first Christmas Season at DL in about - gosh 5 or 6 years - maybe longer that I won't make. And I won't be back in the park for another 2 or 3 years...So I sat here and cried like a little baby watching the video. :gladsad: It's very beautiful! Thanks for sharing. ANd your pictures are all outstanding!

    And thank you, 1FoolishMortal for that wonderful holiday singalong video on YouTube. "Look, Alice. A pole for you to dance on!"

    I'm VERY happy the show doesn't have ANY references to the YOMD.


    I'd rather not have heard this:

    "If you wish with all your heart, the Year of a Million Dreams presented by the Disneyland Resort can make it snow for you. Now look to the skies and dream!"


    Yeah, that would've gone over well.

    The castle light show is amazing, it's weird though how during the Year of a Million Dreams they would use the word "wish" in the dialouge when it could have easily been "dream"

    is it me but, the moment when the kid sings "i wish" then is interrupted by his mother sounds vary into the woods.

    I must be more tired than I thought because the first time I looked at this picture I thought it was a 2 headed reindeer.:lol: Great pictures and video, two more weeks and I will get to see it for myself.

    Yes, the little kid saying at the end "can we go" now is classic, I think the family was on their way to a ride when the show started. I can't wait to go back to Disneyland again to see this again. But I don't want to deal with the Christmas sized crowded, boy the place was packed last night:

    Thanks for the great shots and the video Christaustx. I agree that the little kid at the end of the video asking "Can we go now?" is priceless. :lmao: We're all enthralled and the kid wants to get on the rides. Just like my kids last night. Too funny.

    Oh please. Looking at the videos is much better than actually being there.

    When you are there, you might not have a good spot, annoying people pushing, shoving, and coughing all over you.

    If there's one thing you can count on, it's other people ruining the experience.

    This way, you can watch in the privacy of your own home.

    (So negative today!)

    Although, there is something infectious about the excitement, energy, and spirit of the crowds that really drives the celebration forward !
