Well since the cp is every night in December practically that is why I am worried... I had hoped to see the parade at night especially since afternoon messes with naps but we'll deal. I'd hate to miss it completely.

Love the Christmas Tree pictures everyone! Thanks for sharing. Those Marceline's candy trees are fantastic. Never seen those before.

I'm concerned about the parade, as well. We'll be there from Nov. 29th-Dec. 2nd, and I'm surprised that on November 30th, there are no parades listed on the Disneyland Park Hours site.

This seems bizarre to me. We were planning on doing the Holiday Time Tour on the 30th, and a huge benefit of that would be the reserved seating for the parade.

I'm a WDW-veteran, so I'm not sure how the Park Hours site is normally... but do you guys think this will change? November 30th is not a Candlelight Processional night, which is why I'm confused.

Since someone mentioned Disney will be offering an Ultimate Holiday Tour which will include everything from the regular tour, plus tickets to CP- I would venture to guess there will still be a parade. But perhaps it will only be in the afternoon.
Have a feeling they may still be trying to figure all of this out.

Ok, couple of questions. I posted these on the main board but have not had much response.

1. What is the Holiday Time Tour like? Will my DS7 like it or will he be bored? How long is it? I know you get VIP entrance to HM and IASW and reserved seats for the parade. What else? Is it worth my money for a 7 year old?
2. Anyone know what the discount is for the tour if you use AAA?
3. Do you pay for the tour when you book it?

Hi! I called about this tour yesterday. I can't comment too much, since I haven't done it yet. But the CM said it was about 3 hours long. You get a discount with an AP, AAA or Disney Visa. Cost is $54.40 per person with the discount. I know there have been some reports on this tour. Try doing a search on this thread or on the DL board. You do give your credit card number when you book. I don't know if they charge it right away or not til the day of the tour. And I think you have to cancel 24 hours before.

I don't know about a 7 yo on the tour. I have done several tours @ both WDW & but never had children on any of them. Sorry I don't have more info for you.

Fortunately, there is no need to do a search of this thread or of the board to get holiday tour info!

In addition to the link Laurie just gave you (thank you for that, Laurie!), just go to Page 1, Post #3 of this thread for information. All roads lead back to Page 1 - the Information page! Look under the "Holiday Tour" category in Post #3 and you will find all sorts of info (including recaps/reviews)!

In fact, I'm going to add in Laurie's tour information under that same category in a few minutes!

December park hours have been removed

I just went to check the Disneyland Park Hours, and the December hours had been removed--it looks like the parade situation got someone's attention.

Huh. I just went back to it, and now they're up again. Still not showing the parade. It must have been a temporary thing.

I got excited until I saw the December hours posted are only until December 3rd. We don't arrive until the 16th with our first day in the parks on the 17th.

The CM I talked to said that after the Halloween stuff is over, Christmas and December will be much clearer. He told me November 3rd is when we should be seeing the info but to also watch the blog and the AP page on Disneyland.

We've done the tour twice. I don't think your son will be bored, you may want to bring your own headphones for him (or a stretchy headband which my son wouldn't wear) as the only issue the younger ones had was the headphones were too big. They did have alternate headphones I think the second tour. You walk around, talk about the park/decorations, stops for fudge, treats, two rides, and the parade. It moves right along so your son will be active.

WORTH IT?? For the parade seating alone it's worth it for your DS7. No one in front of him, get to sit in cusioned chairs...heaven at DL

If you'd like to look at my tour pics, there are links in my signature. 2009 we had the 'late' tour (3:00 ish with the evening parade). 2011 we took the earlier tour and watched the 3:00 ish parade.

WONDERFUL pictures of the holiday trees. They all make me smile.
