Nice

The tour is in multiple groups, right? Anyone know the size of each individual group or is it one big group of 20 or 25?

Now I need to wake up at 7am (or a bit before) to make the dessert dining call --- and try to do it in secret so my son doesn't find out about it - and since he usually wakes up early that could be a problem!! Hopefully the cast member will understand my code words

What special holiday food items are available in December? I seem to recall something about "gingerbread men with ears"? What else? And where can I get the gingerbread men?

Thanks!

The gingerbread men with chocolate ears are usually quite tasty! Last year the Market House on Main Street was selling them with red chocolate ears. This year - at least from what I saw when I was there on 11/12/12 - only the regular milk chocolate-dipped ears are available.

There are also various shortbread cookies shaped like trees or snowmen.

You should be able to find all of the cookies in the Candy Palace, the Market House, Pooh Corner, Marceline's Confectionery in Downtown Disney, and basically anywhere that sells candy around the parks.

There are also special holiday cupcakes available, in the bake shops (like Jolly Holiday) or in the various candy shops - the cupcakes have red frosting and Santa Mickey ears or a Minnie bow & Santa hat. They are $4.99.

There are marshmallow "snowman wands," which are basically like Tigger Tails.

There are various holiday apples - some with Santa hats or made to look like snowmen.

I think that you can still get the gingerbread beignets at Cafe Orleans.

There should be some candy cane/peppermint fudge on sale at the Candy Palace.

Gibson Girl Ice Cream on Main Street sells Dreyer's peppermint stick ice cream.

Ghirardelli in California Adventure is giving away free samples of peppermint bark.

Candy cane cotton candy is sold at the Jingle Jangle Jamboree in Disneyland.

There are various holiday drinks such as peppermint mochas and things sold at the Jolly Holiday Bakery and in other spots.


I'm sure I'll think of more, but that's a few for now.

Let's be honest, the only reason I'm going to DL at Christmas is for the food! Haha! I'm most looking forward to the Yule log, can anyone confirm that it's still there this year?

Two weeks ago (11/14) they only had the regular beignets. I wish they still had the gingerbread ones!

Someone close to my heart. I love the decorations also but the special food is definately something I look forward to.

We leave a week from tomorrow!! I'm so excited! I'm also so nervous since I feel so unprepared vs how I normally feel for a trip (I've decided not to plan like crazy each day, other than my ADRs, and this is the only thread I'm reading. )

Has there been any Santa Mickey sightings this year? I know Santa Goofy (that he switched out with) is now at the Jamboree thing, and after they added Mickey to BVS, they switched him out of his old spot (where I guess he met as Santa Mickey?) for Donald. So I'm worried he's not out this year?

Question

FINALLY, everything that needs to be scheduled, is scheduled

Now a couple of questions...

1) Earlier in the thread I read and saw the pictures about the Christmas Eve Goodnight with the characters. This appears to happen around 9:30pm, but the park is open until midnight. There was also a reference to the "first" good night being at 9:30 --- but there was no mention if/when a second one is. Is there a second good night and, if so, when?? Will is be mentioned on the daily schedule at the park? It is not on the events schedule online...

2) If there is not a second good night, how long does dinner at Blue Bayou take? We have an 8pm reservation, could we make the 9:30 good night? I'm guessing not as I think Christmas Eve dinners will take a long time...

3) On the schedule is "Wintertime Enchantment Holiday Lighting" at the Sleeping Beauty Castle with 4 times (5pm, 5:15pm. 7:30pm and 8:30pm)... So is this the lighting event that has been talked about with the snow, etc? How does this work, do they turn them on for a while and then shut them off before the next "lighting" ?? Seems weird to have a 2 different lighting events 15 minutes apart.

4) Same as above for the Mad T Party... Happening at 6pm. 6:05pm, 7, 8 and 9pm... With the party 5 minutes apart at 6pm, what do they do??

Thanks!!

J.

I fell in love with DLR, whats not to love. Fantasyland, Toontown, Nemo and so much more. Both parks and DTD are full of little Disney touches that make it truly Walt's park. Mickey Pretzels, Mickey Gingerbreads, Mickey pancaks. Yummy. It is truly th

Hi there, its been so long since I have been on the boards. I was just curious, I am sure I won't be able to have Disneyland merchandise help me. I have a friend who would love one of the cozy cone cups, but would like two of them, the winter ones are fine. Could I find anyone who would be willing to pick me two up and ship them to me. I will pay you through paypal, or however is quickist for you, it would be a huge help. Thank You.

Castle lighting and the snow?

I figure it will be fairly obvious when we get there... but where are the main snow makers?? I want to station near one for the castle lighting... but if main street/the hub is nuts, is there one over by small world??

While I don't know where the snowmakers are a cast member told me over the phone that when you get the map to the park there are snowflakes on the map that indicate the range that the snowflakes will fall in.

Thanks! Since we've been a few times now, I don't know that I would have even looked at a map!!
