Does DL, have special Christmas ears? I thought I saw in a picture that there's one that looks like it has Santa's belt buckle on it. Anyone know or have any pictures of any?

Nice shot Tom.
I am wondering what you liked more about Disneyland's Christmas over WDW? We went last year for the first time and had a blast as well. Halloween at Disneyland is fun too.

They did have ears that looked like a Santa suit. Also, Gingerbread man ears with I believe spiral red and white peppermint candy ears. If I could wear ear hats, I would have definitly bought the Gingerbread one's, so adorable. Sorry, I didn't get any pics

I think for us the ability to walk from park to park to DTD and the hotel makes for a very enjoyable vacation. Also there are attractions at DL that are not at WDW (Indy, Aladdin, California Screamin').

Can't wait!

Tom,
Beautiful pictures! You are amazing. I have told many people about your WDW pics, but it is wonderful to see some Disneyland pictures. I am glad to hear you had a good time. How did your wife like the trip?

Take care,
Lisa

*waves*

I am back in Germany and finally somewhat coherent. So typical, I finally manage to sleep on the flight back and I am seated next to someone who wakes me up every two hours.

I had a wonderful time and really enjoyed my stay. But as much as I loved it, I have learned that I am really more of a Halloweentime girl.

I have really enjoyable two weeks, but I was glad when our flight left on Tuesday. The crowds really started thickening Monday, it was horrible. Minnies was so packed that I had to ask to be reseated because we were in a booth and the characters couldn't get through to us - all tables and all chairs in front were taken, there was just no room.

That's the only major Disneyland downside that I can remember though. We were lucky and were away for indoor events the two days where it rained really heavily - I really did not enjoy being stuck at LAX for three hours Sunday on my way back though.

I finally got my first picture taken with Santa. I really loved the Holiday tour. Tink recognized me again, and that after way more than a year this time. Flynn liked the drawing I had done of him so much that he asked if he could keep it - thankfully I had brought a backup. I even managed to get just the pin I wanted in the Piece of Movie History pin release last week.

I don't have as much time for as thorough of a response as I'd like (working against the clock on a book and a time lapse video I'm trying to get done) but I will elaborate fully on why we loved Disneyland at Christmas so much next week.

As for Sarah, on the first day of the trip she said, "this (Disneyland) is going to be an annual Christmas tradition." I think that says it all!

I also posted a ride-through video of "it's a small world" holiday. You might think there are hundreds of ride-through videos on YouTube, why take another? But I think this one is pretty unique. I shot it with my DSLR (so the quality is pretty good) plus I used a fisheye lens, so the coverage should be exceptional. Please check it out and let me know what you think! Thanks!
