Tonight is really nice since it is not as crowded on a thursday night during the holiday season at DL. The weather is clear and not windy, so it will be a nice night to see the fireworks.
Hey Bret, I'd really like to know how important you feel it is to watch the fireworks by the castle. Does the Holiday show have as many projections and special effects as RDCT???

All the nighttime shows at DL or WDW is very important to me than the rides. I am just one of those people who like to watch the nighttime shows and get a good spot even if I have to wait hours for it. Also I videotape the shows and post them on youtube later. I must at least be in front of SB castle during each of my trips to see the fireworks from the best view. I have np with the wait and sometimes I save spots for other people who are right next to me.

Believe...In Holiday Magic fireworks doesn't have too many projections and special effects as RDCT. It uses some fireworks on the front of the castle and uses the spinning fireworks on the sides. Believe is over 10 years old and RDCT is 5 years old.

Now to get back to my TR.

When I was in MS USA around 1:30pm today and seeing all of the different Holiday decorations. The first thing I did was take pictures of almost everything that had Holiday decorations around the park. I just walked to shop to shop and almost all the stores had decorations and holiday treats and merchandise.

Here are some of the Holiday merchandise.












Than I just kept going onto different stores on MS. I'm still getting all the pics for the Tree Quest and Wreath Quest that Sherry has setup. Here are some more pics of the Trees and Wreaths on MS USA.









I will post the 3rd part of my TR later since I am tired of waiting for the fireworks tonight. I will BRB.

Thx for reading my TR.

I'm glad the weather is good today. I looked and tomorrow may be good. I read the rain isn't supposed to start until 4am Saturday. Keep up the good work on the quest!

Thank you for the installment. Sitting at the car dealer waiting for the 'good news' about my car. May not be good... It was wonderful to enjoy the holidays at DL through your pics. LOVE the one with the swags across main street and the beautiful blue sky.

Keeping my eyes on my email for a new installment Hope you are having a ton of fun!!

Neat pics!! I might go on a solo trip to Disneyland soon. Are you happy when you go by yourself, Brett? I get a little depressed when I see happy couples and families with little children. Oh well. It's still Disneyland and there is lots to do!

P.S. That Snow Glow thingie looks neat...is it a flashlight?

I was wondering that too, but the one on the far right look like it has "snow in it" is it a snow globe? Does it light up too?

Sry for not replying last night since I needed a lot of sleep after driving for 5 hours. The weather was really nice yesterday and today was also nice. It did sprinkle just a little today but nothing serious. I am prepared for tomorrow when it rains in the morning.

I have more pics on flickr but I can't post them on the thread with my iPad. I'm just waiting for the 2nd parade right across the street from GMwML. The weather is nice and it is cloudy today but it is nice right now.

While I am waiting for the 5:30 parade, I write my TR from yesterday.

Back when I was in the park in the afternoon around 2, I head on straight over to Adventureland and rooks pics of Jungle cruise even though it was not running that day, but I was able to get a pic from the exit.

Than I head on over to the ROA and got the pics of the Mark Twain, Columbia and the rafts. The Columbia was still in the dry docks and I was wondering why it was not running that day. Than I realize that it is a short day today and they didn't need to have both boats on the track.

I head on over to NOS and took more pics of NoS without the holiday overlay. I was kind of surprise that this year in NoS, they don't have any garlands over the walkway. I talked to a CM and said that they try to make NOS more of a Marte Gras than the usual decorations in NOS. I have took pics of the trees and wreaths in NOS stores.

After that I head on over to Critter Country and got the pics of the canoes, winnie the pooh, and splash mountain. I also went in the store st the end of critter country and they had a few more trees in the store for the tree quest.

I will write the rest of my TR when I am waiting for WoC tonight. I am going to try that spot right next to the VIP seating with my Blue FP for the first show. I am also going to see Ele tronica after the parade.

Hope u like my incomplete TR.

What a bummer. I'm sad you didn't get a chance to say hi.

Bret, I've looked through hundred of photos. The ride vehicle shots are superb.


I like the day and night castle shots too.

Thx Matt.

The weather today was a little bit bad than the first two days of the trip. It was raining a little first thing in the morning and than it stopped for awhile. Than later it started to srinkled later and stopped again. Than when I was leaving the hotel today at noon, it started to pour. Talk about getting out of the parks and heading back home at a good time. I feel sorry for the guests who were there today after noon while it was raining hard.
