We just got back a few days ago and had a wonderful trip. The Christmas decor was amazing as usual.

For others looking to do a special Santa photo with their kids I found the cutest spot to be at the Disneyland hotel. They had a fake little cookies and milk station and just a really pretty photo backdrop. The Grand Californian was pretty but too dark to get a good photo with your own camera.

The Jingle Jangle jamboree area was DARLING and there was barely anyone back there! We were able to walk the whole area and let our son see all the characters without rushing or feeling crowded. The character interaction there was great.

They already stopped selling one of the meals (the only one I was interested in trying! ) So now the only reason I personally would buy a picnic would be if I couldn't get to the park by 11 AM or so that day. World of Color Fastpasses are easy to come by nowadays and even on a busy day, I think you can get them?



Disney is always slow in updating their calendars. Things are very much subject to change a month out so I wouldn't worry. I'm not sure if parades go down for a day or three to transition out from the Christmas parade to the regular parade? Either way, the 6th is still Christmastime if I recall correctly. And no promises, but Fantasmic! isn't scheduled to be down until the 7th.

If the show isn't showing by the 6th suppose you could call the line for Fantasmic! dessert packages and ask if they're available on the 6th to confirm the show will be playing. Dining often has their schedules before the website.

Our Fantasmic! is more magical than WDW's, provided you can sit on the ground or stand, so I'd definitely see it if you can. Have a great trip!

Hmmm I liked the look of the meal (and the tote bag) I'll give it until next week and give up. We could get a fastpass but its a magic morning (one we can't take advantage of) and we will want RSR fast passes too. I figured the picnic would take the hassle out of trying to get both.

I'll try the number Fantasmic! desserts and see what I can find out, hopefully they don't charge too much for international calls...(or I won't tell my parents... ) sitting on the ground would be fine, I would do the actual dessert package but my freind and I are on a very tight budget.

Thanks and thanks for the help

Disney Parks Blog featured the design for Candlelight merchandise in one of their postings. Maybe they mentioned a list of items with the logo. You can read the posting by clicking on this link: Disney parks Blog 2012 Candlelight Ceremony Merchandise at Disneyland Park Hope that helps.
Liza - thank you! I can't tell what the design is by the blog posting, however, I appreciate you posting the link! Just 12 days until we go!!

It used to bother me, too. It doesn't anymore. I go to DL about 7 to 9 times a year. I go every December. If not for a weekend, then a day trip. I was in DL last weekend (the first of December). There was very few 2012 merchandise. No ornaments though. The 2012 merchandise they had was hard to find. I have learned to buy my dated items I really want (mainly pins, ornaments and/or mugs) as soon as I see them. If I didn't, come the end of November and the item(s) I wanted were sold out or in very limited supply. Many times I would go on a wild goose chase looking for a item that I heard from a CM was in the DLH gift shop, going out of my way to be sure I could buy it.

I could find the dated pin by trade. I could go on ebay and hopefully find the other items I want. But when it comes to the ornaments, I rather get them in December to be sure I have them in my collection. I know this approach wouldn't work for everyone, but it certainly works for me.

It was funny in the DLH gift had a table half with 2012 merchandise and the other half with 2013 merchandise. It was nice to compare side by side the differences in design between the two years. A CM said he thinks the theme for 2013 was Sorcerer Mickey. i hope. He's my favorite.

BTW, it seems to me if you want to get a limited item or an item in low supply go to the hotel gift shops. Sometimes they will have them. I know that is true with the Holiday Hotel pins. This year's pins came out on Nov 8. They should have sold out by now (LE 500), but there they were in the hotel gift shops. They must have put some aside for guests that visit for Christmas. You can ask a CM working in a shop to call the gift shop to ask if they have the item you want.

Anyway my two bits.

I think I'm going to be doing a call-in show about the 2012 DLR holiday season with the Unplugged Podcast team (or at least a couple of them) tomorrow night (unless plans have changed). We did a similar show for Halloween Time.

Tom/ImTooExcitedToSleep will probably post the phone number to call in, if he has not done so already. Stay tuned for that! We'll be taking specific questions about the season and doling out pearls of Disneyland holiday wisdom to the masses!

I deleted one of your posts, as it was a duplicate!


As you may recall, I posted a detailed explanation about all 5 Santa locations (complete with a reference to the milk and cookies) in this thread within the last couple of weeks (it was after 11/12), and I then posted photos of all 5 locations (including the Jingle Jangle Jamboree spot) to show the differences.

The Disneyland Hotel spot is more elaborate, for sure, but as I explained it is inconsistent as far as PhotoPass photographers. Sometimes there is one there; sometimes there is not. The GCH Santa always has a PhotoPass person.

I agree - the decorations this year are amazing, but only some of them are "usual"! The DCA decorations add in a whole new layer to things (and more "themes" for my Theme Week Countdown of 2013!).

I merged your posts together. We have a very limited number of pages left in this thread before I have to switch us to the new thread (only for the sake of reaching our page limit in this one - not for any other reason), and I am trying to make sure we get as much mileage as possible out of these last 8 pages - meaning no double posts, merging when necessary, etc.

Here are 3 of my recent Santa information posts (I just quoted myself to save time)! I hope this helps anyone headed out to meet him in the parks or hotels!

First of all, when I was at DLR on 11/12 (the official first day of the holiday season for this year), I intentionally went to the hotels to check for decorations. When the hotels have their decorations up, Santa is likely to follow. None of the hotels were decorated at that time - which is pretty much what I expected based on every other year. The hotels kind of operate separately from the parks as far as seasonal decorations.

The parking guy (in the little office) at the Paradise Pier Hotel told me that the Grand Californian is the first hotel to get decorated, with the Disneyland Hotel next and the Paradise Pier last. All of the hotels are decorated by the week after Thanksgiving, and probably a couple of days before that. When the trees go up in the hotels, that's when Santa makes his hotel appearances.

When the season begins, only the two parks' Santas are at their posts. I think I showed Santa at his Jingle Jangle Jamboree post when I shared my photos last week, and I showed a photo of the location in Elias & Co. (figment_jii showed one as well). There was a long line at the Elias spot.

Most reports that I have heard over the years have said that the Grand Californian's tree goes up on the morning after Thanksgiving. This would fit with what the PPH guy told me. However, I know that one or two DIS'ers claimed to have seen the GCH tree up on the weekend before Thanksgiving in one year, which does not fit with what the PPH guy told me! Maybe it was a fluke and they just happened to get the GCH decorated earlier than usual, but it doesn't seem to be the norm.

Bret/mvf-m11c was just at DLR this past weekend (including yesterday) and he did not see a tree in the GCH lobby. No tree = no Santa. But, by this coming Friday, the tree should be nicely situated in the GCH lobby, along with Santa, a PhotoPass person, some Dickens carolers, etc.

Shortly thereafter, the Disneyland Hotel's Santa should be in place, followed by the PPH's Santa.

I have observed that the GCH Santa usually has a 2-hour 'shift,' during which he sits for maybe 45 minutes or so, then takes a break, then comes back to sit again. (I am rough-guessing the time frame, but it's in that range.) He is generally there in the late afternoon to early evening, unless his shift has been changed this year.

The Disneyland Hotel Santa is usually there in the mid-to-late afternoon (again, unless his shift has changed). Sometimes there is a PhotoPass person; sometimes there is not. This location is a bit more elaborate than the other hotels' set-ups.

The Paradise Pier Santa is always there in the morning - usually the latter part of the morning - by the gorgeous, glowing blue-green tree. There is no PhotoPass person in this spot.

He was only in the green plaid ensemble at the (former) Reindeer Round-Up, post-Christmas. Since Santa is supposed to be gone from the Jamboree/Round-Up this year by 12/24, I don't think he will be in the green plaid anywhere!

As far as which locations might be better...setting aside the parks for a moment and just focusing on the hotels alone, each hotel has its high points.

I really like the setting in the Grand Californian Hotel lobby. Santa sits in front of the tree, and it's a dimly lit, elegant, holiday-esque environment. There will be a PhotoPass person here.

The Santa spot in the Disneyland Hotel (unless it has changed) is a bit more elaborate, with a whole fireplace set-up, a plate of milk and cookies for Santa, reindeer decor and various trees. There may or may not be a PhotoPass person at this spot.

The Paradise Pier Hotel Santa backdrop is very simple - it's in the lobby; it's not dim or atmospheric; it's not elaborate. It's just Santa sitting in front of the very, very beautiful blue-green glowing tree (which is my favorite of the 3 hotels' trees because it is the most colorful and striking to me). But there is no PhotoPass person here.


The Santa spot at the Jingle Jangle Jamboree is outdoors, which could be problematic on rainy days in December! I don't know why they didn't just let him stay in his little cabin at this spot, as the cabin is still available for photos!

So I guess the reasons to get hotel Santa photos instead of or in addition to the parks' Santa photos would be for the different backdrops, ambiance, coloring, etc. I find that a picture of the Santa at the GCH is very different from a photo with the Santa at Elias & Co. in DCA because the setting/backdrop looks so drastically different!

In fact, just for photographic reference (and I am guessing there are other people out there who will be meeting Santa too), I compiled some of my photos to give examples of each Santa location.



(2010) - This is the Santa spot at the Paradise Pier Hotel – it's bright, cheery, and basic. The tree is gorgeous and glowing in person, but does not translate well in photos. There is no PhotoPass person here...

See the Santa chair on the left side of the picture...







Santa’s chair...





Santa hugging a random child...





Carolers on the other side of the tree greet guests as they enter the lobby...












(2010) - This is the Santa spot at the Grand Californian Hotel. It is dimly lit, elegant, comfortable, and there's an overall very nice holiday atmosphere. There is always a PhotoPass person with Santa...

Hello, Santa!





Presents under the tree...








Carolers sing and take requests on the other side of the tree (this picture is from 2008, but they were there in 2010 and last year too)...




And a Santa PhotoPass picture from 2008...














(2010) - This is the Disneyland Hotel Santa photo spot. It's more elaborate, detailed; sometimes there is a PhotoPass person; sometimes no PhotoPass person...























(2012) - Here is Santa at his new Elias and Company post in California Adventure – it's bright, cheery and there is a long line of people waiting to meet him. He was there in the afternoon and at night. There is a PhotoPass person with him...


















(2012) - This is Santa at his new, outdoor, rustic Jingle Jangle Jamboree post in Disneyland (with a PhotoPass person)...











I hope that helps everyone debating on which Santa spots to go to!

I have only ever once bought a ride photo and that's cause my guys all made funny faces at once and it was just too perfect to pass up.
I was the same way...my kids are smaller so probably RSR will be the only ride they ride with a picture and we are doing one character meal...But I went ahead and got one and Ill just make sure and get our money's worth...this is our first trip so I wanted to make sure and have as many memories as possible!!

I didn't see this ornament at every shop that carried ornaments. May be a hard one to find but I think worth getting when you see. The ornaments at the Acorn gift shop were almost gone by the time I left the resort. I mean I bought two myself. (Sorcerer Mickey is my favorite and I have two Christmas trees)
We found this very odd... there were plenty of cool 2013 ornaments, but 2012 were literally non-existent. Did I get my calendar wrong, isn't this Christmas 2012?

We were bummed, because we always get an ornament to commemorate our tiep for that year... had to buy ornaments with no year on them

ONE HINT FOR THOSE DOING THE DESSERT PARTY...

They don't give you any kind of e-mail with confirm or instructions, and so it is easy to forget that you have to go to Guest Services to get your actual tickets BEFORE you show up at the party. I forgot, but luckily I had gotten there way early to reserve prime seats. When I asked they told me I needed to go to the front of the park, I ran to GS, got my tickets, ran back and still prime front row seats. BUT while I was waiting later for the area to open up I watched as 3 different families got into it with the CM's over the fact they had paid for this but couldn't go in now because they never got their tickets. It got ugly!!

We absolutely loved the show that way and desserts were a hit for the next 3 days while we tried to finish them all off

This happened to us last year when we were there Dec. 20-22 or so, and no 2011 Christmas ornaments to be found. It was so strange!

Yep, me too! We were there last December and the selection of 2011 ornaments was nearly non-existent, but I could find plenty of 2012. I don't get it, either.

Yep kinda sad to not have ornaments... but this year, it wasn't even Thanksgiving yet and there were none.
It might make more sense if they were out by Christmastime... but by Thanksgiving?
