Jade - I wasn't sure where Tom was looking when he mentioned the map, but Bret/mvf-m11c posted a photo on Page 29 of this thread - http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=428. I am guessing that's a 2011 map?

Also on Page 29 is TheZue's breakdown on the Halloween-themed In-Room celebration baskets, etc., with prices (Nancy mentioned these celebrations on the podcast last night).

I have a WHOLE YEAR to wait ... but this thread sure is helping appease the Disney monster while I wait.

Thanks for all the stories, info, and expecially the pictures. Pictures + memories + imagination = I smell the pumpkin muffins and churros from cubie land at work!

My parents thinks I'm crazy for being this excited so early. I'm not sure why since they were QUICK to invite themselves along when I told them I was taking DD next year. I hope they come out of the closet someday and admit they love the magic too!

We will be at DL for 5 days plus the Halloween Party.
I am wondering if we will be able to get many of our character pictures taken durning normal park hours. I am not sure we want to spend a lot of time in lines for characters at the party if we can do that during the day.
Are there special character pictures during the party?
Do the characters only wear their costumes at the party?
Thanks

All the holidays are great at disneyland so you can't go wrong!
Which of the two cruises will you be one?

As long as you like the holiday season to begin with and enjoy Christmas (some people don't, so I have to preface my sentence with that!), you will love Disneyland during that time. Some people prefer Halloween as a holiday (over Christmas), and if that's the case you might still enjoy Halloween Time more than the holiday season.

But let me put it this way - as wonderful as Halloween Time is, the holiday season is 100 times more detailed, more all-encompassing, more involved, more immersive, etc. There are decorations all over the parks - in all shops and restaurants too - and at the hotels, in Downtown Disney, etc. Certain lands have themed decor. Holiday music fills the air (in different themes based on the land). IASW Holiday is gorgeous inside and out. The nighttime Winter Castle is stunning. The lights on Main Street are amazing. It is truly an incredible time of year to be at DLR.

I have a feeling that by the time you have your holiday trip there may very well be a Christmas party happening at DL too. I think that a party is coming either next year or in 2014.
The funny thing is Christmas itself is not doing a great deal for me, but I love the period of time leading up to it with all the decorations. I grew up in Germany where there are Christmas markets everywhere the month leading up to Christmas. Christmas itself has always felt like a bit of an anti-climax to me. I am sure that I will love the Holiday season at DL. I have witnessed the holiday season a few times at DLP. They also used to have a holiday overlay for IASW, but stopped this a few years ago. I can't wait to see the special things for the holidays at WDW this year. It is so strange that DL does not have a Christmas party yet and I hope that this will be offered in 2014.

Here's a shot of the Haunted Mansion Gingerbread House. Unfortunately no matter how I sat, the railing always blocked the actual house.

Does anyone have 2 extra tickets for the October 5 Mickey's Trick or Treat Party? Now that my friend has decided to go it is sold out.
Thanks for posting the map.
