Great Picture

That is a really great picture. Is it really that crowded? We would like to go Christmas Day but that crowd looks crazy. Has anyone been Christmas Day that could tell me what to expect.
THanks so much!

We went to California Adventure on Saturday, we arrived at 945am, later than planned. I grabbed fast passes (yellow) for the 9pm WOC and fast passes for Soarin while the rest of our party headed to Toy Story Mania. They had to wait for the rope drop, went to TSM and still had a 50 min wait.

But after that, the waits were all pretty short about 10 mins, nothing over 20 mins. We rode Mickeys Fun Wheel (spinning bucket), Silly Symphany Swings, Golden Zephyr, toured the tortilla factory and bakery, used our fps for Soarin, lunch at Pilots Grill, photos with pilot Minnie, some shopping, 30 minute wait for TOT, Monsters Inc, then watched Aladdin.

It was now around 530 so we headed over to DL for our dinner reservation at Cafe Orleans. DL was much more crowded than CA had been. We ate dinner at went back to CA. Stopped and took photos at each letter. Then sat and waited for WOC.

We didn't think CA was overly busy, but it also didn't feel overly Christmasy.

That picture is definitely what Christmas Day looks like. We're there every year

Here are some pictures from NOS, which is my favorite land during the holidays...the decorations are so beautiful!















While I was taking pictures of the different masks on the lamp posts, I noticed that every single one was different. There are two on every lamp post and I had expected them to be the same but nope. I ended up taking pictures of all of them. I haven't decided which one I like best (perhaps the first one or the black one)...what do you guys think?

Christmas Day is the busiest day of the year at DL. Expect huge crowds, long, long lines, jammed sidewalks and if you do go, be there early and plan to stay in the park all day as the gates will more than likely close for capacity and you may not be able to get back in.

Flitterific, I love NOS, too. I could spend all day in there. I have a picture of the first red lamp post, it's my favorite.

Oh yes! You'll see the little signs go up by the Main Gate. I wonder if there would even be any food reservations left at this point?

Taken by my little man this morning. Just wanted to share how a 6 year old views the tree at the PPH lobby


He sat on the floor to take this one.


Looking down from the second floor and no, the top portion of lights were not working.

Headed to Disneyland this Friday Dec 17. I hope the crowds are not as bad as it looks like this weekend was.
