With only 1 day away till my trip to the DLR during the Holiday season and after looking at Sherry pictures, I do have a lot to cover this weekend. Not only with BVS and CL having the Christmas decorations, I also have to go to DTD and see the ice rink. I was sad to hear that the Christmas tree at DTD is not there this year. There is a lot to cover this weekend. I also have to go to DL of course to see the Jingle Jungle Jamboree which is new for the Holiday season. But it is just using the Festival area of the back of BTR just like they used it during the Halloween season.

i also heard a rumor from a friend of mine that Santa might make an appearance at the GCH. Mostly he makes an appearance after thanksgiving, but this will change a lot if he is at the GCH and maybe the tree will be up by then. So I will also be going to the GCH lobby to see if the rumor is true.

Have a wonderful time with your DA. I'll be looking forward to your trip report when you return.

Glad that you like the pictures from this past weekend at the DLR during the Holiday season. You will like it a lot.


I'm finally back from this weekend at the DLR during the Holiday season. I have a lot to show but I will get to the trip report when I get closer to finish my WDW trip from a couple of weeks ago. Here is a small recap of this weekend.

We got to see BVS and CL with the decorations and they were very nice. Got to watch Believe...In Holiday Magic fireworks and looked at the decorations at night which is great as usual during the Holiday season.

Yesterday, we got to do a lot where we got to ride RSR twice that day with FP's. There was no way we were willing to wait in the stand by line that day. RSR was down most of the morning where we didn't go on RSR until noon.

We got to ride TSMM with no wait time (TK I know that you would have easily gone it over and over that morning). I would have never imagine it in a million years that TSMM at DCA would have a walk-on when the park opens. Good thing that CL is taking most of the guests away from Paradise Pier in the morning.


Got to ride MFW and Soarin at DCA. Later at DL we got to ride the HMH and IASWH which are great as usual. Got to ride the DLRR and the monorail that day. Later that day we had dinner at the Carthay Circle Theater which we were looking forward to. Also we watched World of Color that night.

Today was the last day which was picture day and rode HMH again as well as BLAB like I usually do on a DL trip. I will write up the trip report later on but I will show you pictures from my DL trip.

Here are some pictures from Friday including some trees, wreaths, garlands for the quests. Thank you Sherry for showing your pictures of your trip last Monday. Also I didn't see the tree up at the GCH this weekend. Also the Christmas Village at DTD isn't that spectacular as mentioned where I have seen stands that were selling Holiday merchandise right around the Ice Rink.

Hi Bret,
The Carsland decorations are just great. I really enjoyed your pictures especially the nightime ones

You are right that my family would have ridden TSM several times if the wait time was that low.

Thank you for sharing your trip with us!

Thank you TK.

I knew that you would have a great time with that short wait time. When we finished riding MFW after riding TSMM, the wait time was only at 5 minutes which was nice.

Glad that you are enjoying the pictures.


I will have more pictures from this past weekend up shortly.

Buena Vista Street from Friday the 16th


Very interesting from that day that there were some filming crew on the right hand side of the BVS when you enter the park and I was wondering what they were filming that day.






Chamber of Commerce building


Los Feliz Five & Dime Store










Locker building


They were filming something over there that day








One of the Christmas trees for the tree quest




Window Display




Christmas tree inside the Los Feliz Five & Dime Store




Wreaths on the Elias & Company Store


Another Christmas tree which you can barely see




That’s it for now and I will have more from the DL Holiday trip.
