November 3rd is only 30 days out, which gives those first people no time to plan if they want to book immediately.

jkh1978 -

Did you see the Christmas tree photos that Laurie/DizNee Luver posted earlier? They included the "DTD Business" trees, which were the trees that were part of last year's tree contest that I told you about.


Bret -

I actually switched themes for this week, specifically so you could participate in the Christmas Tree theme before you head off to WDW. I had another theme planned for today, but I moved it to another week! If I had kept the same theme I had planned, then the Christmas Tree theme would have fallen on a Monday while you're in Florida and possibly can't participate!

Yep. I think it will be like a concert ticket frenzy for those first days. Hopefully they will release some info prior to the 3rd.
Good luck to those hoping for the 3rd.

Hello, Tom!

It's good to see you back on this side of the board again!

I must say, your amazing nighttime photo of the DCA entrance during the holidays makes it look so much better than I thought it looked in person. I felt that in person it lacked a certain 'wow factor' after dark, if that makes sense! There should have been more lights or something. I am hopeful that this year it will all be bigger and brighter, with the exciting Buena Vista Street and Cars Land decorations in the near future!

Thanks! You all (especially you) helped me plan so much that I actually felt like an expert on Disneyland at Christmas before we ever stepped foot in the park. Thanks to this thread, we were incredibly well-prepared, and accomplished and ATE everything we wanted. So, I figured I'd stop back here this year and share some of the photos from the trip!

As for the entrance looking better than it looked in person, that's partly due to the processing of that photo, and partly due to the entrance looking AMAZING that night in the rain. It was raining when I took that photo, but I just had to stop, set up my tripod, and capture it. I got soaked keeping my camera dry, but I think it was worth it!

I guess we don't get to see Fantasmic this year. It's not on the calendar on the days we are going to be in the park. Kind of sad. Oh well I guess we will do the tour instead!

SOrry, if this has already been asked, but how do you think Disneyland having the CP for 20days affect crowds in December??? We have a trip tenatively planned for Dec4-7th...and I'm scared that it will be crazy crowded!

This will be our first trip during the holiday season, as we had to cancel our trip last minute last year. We went this year in August 13-16, and while it was crowded it wasn't unbearable...I'm hoping crowds will be like they were at this time or less.

or should I just move our trip up a week, and go the last week of November???

I am loving these pictures of the trees!! Thanks everyone for posting!! They make me soooo excited for our trip in Dec.

Also, I thought I would post this for all us who love Disneyland at Christmas time.

I ran across this post with the reading and pictures for "A Christmas Adventure in Disneyland." The kids thought it was kinda fun to listen to especially if you are counting down days till you get there like us!
