I was there Wednesday, and the flower Mickey balloons on either side of Mickey were poinsettias, but Mickey still had his "celebrate" hat on. By Friday the floral Mickey was entirely transformed to Christmas.

MousePlanet's most recent Disneyland Update gave a nice listing of the holiday goings on at Disneyland:

""it's a small world" holiday – both inside an out, the ride is made over with Christmas decorations. This holiday overlay will be the most lingering of the seasonal changes as the ride won't close until January 18 to remove the overlay.
Believe in Holiday Magic Fireworks – a special holiday-themed fireworks spectacular. Showing through January 3, there is one performance each night. Showtime varies depending on the date, but is at 9:25 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
A Christmas Fantasy Parade – Disneyland's traditional holiday parade that follows the standard parade route, performing twice a day most dates (and always on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) but some days have only one show.
Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle – once it gets dark in the park the decorations on Sleeping Beauty's Castle take center stage, with a brief lighting effects show that happens several times throughout the evening.
Disney's Electrical Parade to Disney's California Adventure – while there is nothing special done to the parade reflect the holidays, the holiday season does mean its return—but for only about two weeks, starting on December 18.
Santa Claus – of course, a visit with Santa Claus is a must. In Disneyland, Big Thunder Ranch has been turned into Santa's Reindeer Round-up. Santa and Mrs. Claus are on site with several of their reindeer, and even some Disney characters dressed for the holidays. It may cause some confusion with the children, but Santa is also available for some lap time over in DCA, in his "Seaside Pavillion" at Paradise Pier.
Gingerbread cookie decorating – Get creative with some cookie decorating outside of the AP Processing Center at Plaza Pavilion.
Special drinks and treats – several locations throughout the parks are offering up special seasonal offerings such as peppermint stick ice cream at Gibson Girl, or egg nog lattés where specialty coffee drinks are available.
Candlelight Processional – the traditional telling of the Christmas story will be presented on Saturday, December 5, and Sunday, December 6, and narrated by actor Jon Voight. Unless you book a special package or invitation, viewing is on a first-come, as-available basis. "

They also have some great photos taken by Adrienne Krock. The candy canes that look like trees look particularly appealing to me and I'm not even a big fan of candy canes!

Wow, all of your photos are fantastic Kayla's Mom, but this one is a piece of art. Magnificent framing / sense of place.

Thank you kungaloosh22! My DH is actually the photographer and that one was his favorite. I am going to try and get my trip report posted in the next day or so. We have a ton of photos that I want to share!

It's probably been asked, but where is the best place to stand to get a good view of the castle / fireworks and experience the snow?
