Thank you I love Disneyland in December. We haven't been since 2005. Our youngest DD had never liked the Haunted Mansion until she did THe Nightmare Before Christmas version. The funny thing was she had never seen the movie before that. I ended up getting her the movie and it was love for a while. I enjoyed your report and pictures a lot.

Thanks everyone. And yes, my next visit now has a date. June 4 to be exact, which means that 48 hours from this very moment I will be in Disneyland. Let's just say that I'm looking forward to it as my life has been the emotional equivalent of California Screamin' and Space Mountain the last few weeks, so I need to get away from it for just a few days. And the plan is write a trip report, but I'd like to finish the TR from my once in a lifetime visit in February. If we're lucky(and don't count on it), I may get an installment up before I leave bright and early Wednesday morning.

Thanks, but you may not want to know why my trip in February was once in a lifetime.

We went in early December in 2005 and it was a wonderful trip. One of our best trips ever. Well they all are wonderful trips.

Why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

I'm a sucker for pictures of Disneyland! Great trip report! I love the picture of Prince Phillip holding up Aurora in the parade.

Thanks everybody. I just got back a few hours ago from another wonderful Disneyland visit and am working on notes so I don't forget things when I write the report. I'm hoping to get working on the February report in the next couple of days, so stay tuned.

sleepless knight-
I really enjoyed your trip report!

I was there the week before Thanksgiving and you're right, a weekday in December would be much better.
It was so crowded i just wanted to get out of there. And that's pretty bad for the biggest Disney geek ever to want to go to the airport early.

was the X Wing fighter in the Star Tours queue?
My boys are Star Wars fans and I don't recall seeing that.

Hope you find your Jedi Princess!

The X-Wing is actually over in the arcade. As you're in the standby line for Space Mountain, when you get up to the side of the building, look through the windows and you'll see the X-Wing through the windows. When I got off, I went into the arcade and went to the back of the building. Look up and there it is.

When the PeopleMover was still around they had stormtroopers standing guard near Star Tours. And a few years ago, they had Darth Vader standing over the portal between Star Tours gift shop and the main Star Trader.

In terms of finding my Jedi Princess, I did find her an ID badge this past Saturday night. Star Traders had these Jedi Training Academy badges and one actually said Princess on it. Considering the photoshop alterations I've done depicting Sleeping Beauty with a lightsaber, I bought this badge. When the time comes, it will match my Jedi Council Member badge.

The first installment of my February trip report is now up.
