Thank you for the in put....if I can convince hubby (who tends to be a little bit of a tightwad) how amazing this will be, then I will definitely schedule it for in the evening.

That later/evening tour sounds wonderful... But with 2 candlelight processionals each night this year, I think everything is going to change. I hope they release details soon.

mommyto3boys -

I'm not sure which posts you saw that were a few years old but the tour has not really changed in a few years, by most accounts - so what was applicable 3 years ago was still basically applicable in 2011, with the exception of maybe the color of the cookie and the actual cost of the tour. This year things may differ slightly because the Candlelight Processional will affect parade times.

Anyway, here are fabulous tour posts with either info or photos from DIS'er areweindisneyyet:

I've merged the two Holiday Tour/Is It Worth It/Is It Worth a Repeat threads together.

We will be there from December 29 - Jan.4. Does anyone know if the holiday tour will still be offered during our dates?

In the first post on Page 1 of this thread from 2011 (by areweindisneyyet), I see that there were people scheduled to do the tour on December 30 & 31 of last year. I think the listings stop after that, but I'm not sure if that means that there were no more holiday tours after New Year's Eve, or if it just means that no one else happened to get their name on the list.

In any case, it's a safe bet to assume that the tours extend at least through December 31, so you will have a chance to do it!

I think we're sold.

Sounds like a great activity for me, my mother and two kids during our upcoming November visit. Thanks for the tips and info.

Smile Parade times?

I'm planning on booking this for my Nov trip. We will be there just at the beginning of the holiday timing.

Will the parade still be at 5:30pm?

It looks like I'm going to have to squeeze this tour into my quick trip in December! I've never been to Disneyland for the holidays, but I'm making a weekend visit just to catch the holidays this year. I'll only be there one Saturday (and part of Sunday morning) but I think this tour sounds worth it. I've never seen a Disney parade!

OMG! This sounds perfect for me and my 2 sisters! DH & I are Disneyland veterans but I'm going to DLand with my sisters in early December. I would love to book a surprise tour for them. Oldest sis has a hard time standing, so the only way we'll be able to see a parade is by sitting, I think this'll be the way to go. She finishes radiation therapy for breast cancer later this month, so she'll be sufficiently recovered by Dec. 4. Thinking of things to make this trip special.

Does anyone have insider information when this tour will be announced this year? Curious what time and how often it will be with the changes to the Candlelight processional.
