Christmas time was one of the most amazing times for us at DL. Nothing else compares in my opinion. The weather for us was cool in the morning, 70's in the afternoon and it got down to 50's at night. Perfect weather. The park is more magical during this time of year then any other. You can see a link in my signature to all the pics we took last December.

Tee hee hee! My work is done! Yes, this has turned out to be a great thread, hasn't it? It began simply as the OP just asking basic questions atbout DLR during the holidays, but it has evolved into THE key thread that should be essential reading/viewing for anyone who wants to know what it is like at DLR during the Christmas season. While the DLR Holiday photo thread (in the Community section) is great, too, this thread is only about Christmastime, and we have info here about the treats and the specific little things/details to see which might otherwise be overlooked, as well as some fabulous photographic contributions from our DIS-ers. It is sort of the comprehensive DLR/Christmas planning thread now.

It is looking very likely that - short of a miracle - I will miss out on seeing DLR during Halloweentime this year, and I am bummed out about it but I can live. However, my mind is already jumping ahead to trying to assemble a holiday trip because that is the one I cannot miss! I need to eat another gingerbread man with mouse ears, pronto!!

Oooh I love Disneyland at Christmas time! My favorite. We are going (hopefully) for Christmas this year. My mom lives down in SoCal, so this time we might stay with her and spend three days in the parks. Maybe one night we might stay across the street. Here are a few pictures from our last trip down.

Oh it makes me want to go now next week, the week after, and after hahaha

I'm blaming everything on you...

See, I had been avoiding this thread. It kept popping up, and I kept dismissing it. My thoughts were that I am not going during Christmas time, so why tempt myself by looking? Don don don....I LOOKED!!!

December is a very special time of the year for me, it houses my birthday, my youngest's birthday (Christmas eve...poor thing), my DMiL's birthday, my grandmother's birthday, AND Christmas which I don't celebrate for spiritual reasons but because I like the colors.

Anyway, I am literally bawling over here. I can feel the magic, through words and pictures, and I know that I would LOVE it.

So now, I have to explain to my husband how we'll be making TWO trips next year. The second will be his birthday present to me AND DD, AND our Christmas presents to the kids if I have to...

It's all your fault, 3Minnies1Mickey. It's all your fault...

I will take the blame (even though someone else was looking for it)!!! This thread FORCED me to book a xmas trip this year (kids xmas present). Thank goodness we got APs in Sept. We will have 3 trips in 3 1/2 months and most likely 6 trips in 6 months!!! EEEK DL snowball is mowing me over!!!

This thread has me even more excited for our first December trip!! I did not think that was possible! Anyone try the candy canes they make there in December? I remember hearing about them on here last year and hoping to get one.

After spending several Holiday Seasons at WDW, I decided to give DLR a try this year. This thread has me sooo excited I'm spending Christmas '09 at Disneyland!! I've never visited DLR, let alone seen it during the holidays and I can't wait!!!

I love seeing all the pics! It's helping to build my excitment!


I'm noticing sweatshirts, coats, and blue jeans in the pics. Christmas time at WDW is shorts weather. I'm guessing Anaheim isn't that warm in December?

It can be completely different from one year to the next. I have pictures of the kids swimming in the pool, and one year only daughter and I went to the park on Christmas day because hubby and the other kids wanted to stay by the pool.... we were not there for Christmas day last year but right after and it was cold! we only brought jackets and my warmest piece of clothing was a hooded red fleece top, I had to layer a t-shirt and other top under it, and wear gloves I bought and ..... socks with my sandals shhhh don't tell anyone!! lol.... that was only for a couple of the days though, most days were nice and warm, bare arms weather if not shorts.... but it does cool off quite a bit at night. People who actually live there will chime in here I hope with more detailed information.
