Are you talking about the one in the Castle ? I love that one even though it's really tiny

It is a bit disappointing but I'm still really excited to go! As others have said I've never been at Christmas before and so won't notice the holes as much. I'm very excited for the parade and snow on Main Street and just being in Disney generally!

It's a shame they are having to cut back but really where isn't at the moment? Even WDW have hiked prices and cut EMH without adding other things in.

I'm just going to focus on what special things ARE happening for Christmas instead of the things that aren't.

Can anyone confirm if they will be lighting the castle at night during the Christmas season? This has been the most magical moments of our visits!

Unknown as yet .. if they do it will no doubt be only the tower roofs like last year.

I hope the mini parade is along the lines of the old Christmas parade with the toy soldiers etc, its so much better then the one that they used from the 15th anniversary parade since.

I agree (having seen video footage). It does appear that there is going to be a separate mini Christmas parade this time from the release (fingers crossed as it will be fab), but sometimes what we interpret isn't quite what happens at DLRP .

For example, look at the issue they created this year mentioning free FPs in their benefits of booking in their 20th year - plenty people thought they would get FPs with the booking (which to be fair, it was almost what it sounded like!) when in fact it was just the usual FPs from the machines!

Back on topic - I've always loved to the look of those Nutcracker type soldiers - sooo Christmassy! I read somewhere that they think the Character train is going to be taken off in lieu of this parade....?

Thanks Carrie!

Tbh, I wouldn't be too worried at all if it were the case - that is the one thing of the 20th year that I could do without (plus it means I can leave my sunglasses behind !). I know others may not be so impressed if it isn't on especially if they haven't seen it yet I guess!
