I think every time a thread starts with.."I am thinking of going to DL for Christmas time.." we post this picture in the hopes that next year it will be empty.

I think I'm probably one of the few who would welcome a hard ticket DL Christmas party. I love the idea of smaller crowds. The halloween party was lovely, I would say almost as good as WDW. They just need to create a parade as good as Boo to You! The Halloween party was definately worth it.

I think WOC is going to morph into holiday themes as a substitute for evening "free" activities for AP.

The parties are too good a money maker for Disney.

So I have TONS and TONS of catching up to do, but I thought I would drop in to say HI! I have been watching our local news and have heard about the miserable weather that has been going on in California...has it been raining like crazy at DL as well? As I watch the news and see how miserable the weather is right now, I am really glad that our trip was pushed off until next year. If we would have gone this year and it was pouring the entire time we were there it would have been horrible. Since this is probably going to be our one and only trip there, I would HATE to have to spend it stuck in the hotel. I know we can't perdict what next year will bring, but it is highly unlikly that next year will be the same. I feel bad for those that went this year and it may be their only trip...I hope, if the weather was horrible, that they were able to get a little bit of time in the parks where they were not misserable.

I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas and remember the true meaning of CHRISTmas. Also, hold your family close and be thankful for each and everyone of your family members in this day. With employment issues, high foreclosure rates, and people struggling to put food on their tables...lets be thankful that we not only have each other, but we have a nice warm place to sleep. Have a wonderful weekend and great time with your family and friends.

Disneyland, DH and my horses have a soothing effect on my soul, and always brings a smile on my face.

I agree! The Boo to You parade was one of the best parades we have ever seen. MHP is missing that one great element that WDW has.

I think you have something there. Last Oct we stayed 3 days in one of the DVC rooms that faced DCA. We had the pleasure of observing them play around with the new Tron segment that was added to the WOC. For two nights we had wayward blue laser lights streaming into our room as they tried different effects to come up with the final piece. By the third night they had the segment finished and were practicing seeming it into the WOC with music. It wouldn't take them long to come up with a Halloween or Christmas WOC.

I did not mean you or any one else who is asking about Christmas time!!!!! I am absolutely mortified if someone took it that way.

I was trying to be funny because that picture shows such HUGE crowds, I just cannot believe all the people there that day. I was just joking that if we show that picture around enough, maybe we can scare everyone else away and keep it just for us (you included).

But absolutely you should go - it is beautiful and worth the crowds.

I knew exactly what you meant, amamax2!! I hope Pjimmeyer got the joke! Do anything we can to keep those 'other' folks (not the ones on the Christams threads!) away from DLR during the season. If anyone is curious or interested enough to subscribe to the holiday threads, then they should go to DLR during the holidays and experience it!! We're here to inform and share!

So, along those lines....I must tell all the 'other' people not on this thread that the GCH lobby experience is a waste of time and not worth it...too crowded. Stay far, far away.

I'm a little scared of these crowds! I'm actually on the plane as we speak heading to SNA. Can't believe it!

Have fun, jdisnut!!

It is supposed to rain a bit (though not like the rain we had this week) in the next couple of days. That may keep a few people away...maybe. But it will be very, very crowded - I think that is inevitable. From what we have heard, it was still pretty crowded even in the rain this week. It's going to be a Magic Morning every day except for Wednesday, through next week, so there will be lots of folks getting jump starts on their days if they have 3-day Hoppers (or more) or are staying onsite.

Very nice, Sara! Back in action, recovering from the flu!!

Did you take these photos with the Nikon that got repaired, or the newer P&S camera you just got (isn't it a Canon or am I thinking of someone else)?
