THANK YOU for that podcast. I love the information gathering I can do because of it!

One of the biggest things I got out of it was that it was recommended that we see the fireworks. Got it on the top of the list now. We also just watched Nightmare Before Christmas for the first time last night (thank GOODNESS DD age 5 didn't get scared) so we now are more familiar with the characters.

My question is where are the fireworks held? I'm guessing over Sleeping Beauty's castle? If so, is there a good place to watch them? Did I hear there was a parade or cavalcade before the fireworks?

I have a hard time believing that the kids will be able to pull off late nights all three nights we are there....we are doing WOC on Thursday night (again, thank goodness that is only a 8:00pm show and not later) then the party Friday and then we can go back to the hotel when we need on Saturday. It is a 2 hour time difference for us.

Thanks for all the great tips! I'll be listening to the next one too before we leave!

I'm at Disneyland now - sitting at the Jolly Holiday bakery having a Matterhorn macaroon!

There are signs at the turnstiles saying the party is sold out for tonight. Also, the party pins are already out and for sale.

Are there special character pictures during the party?
Do the characters only wear their costumes at the party?
Thanks
rwhistler92 -

The thing is that Disney seems to be making a concerted effort to limit the availability/accessibility of certain characters during the daytime this year. In the past, the Villains were out and about for photos in the daytime, and various characters were wearing Halloween costumes on Main Street.

This year it appears that only certain costume-clad characters can be found at the "Carnival," while you can only "conjure up" one Villain at a time in the tent that's there. The actual party is where there will be all kinds of interesting photo spots around the park - not just at the Carnival. For example, in the podcast the Storm Troopers were mentioned. They won't be out in the daytime. They would only be at the party. Jack Sparrow is a party regular.

Most of the photo spots at the party are PhotoPass as well.

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.

Corinna -

I've seen a few shows on TV that feature the Christmas markets in Germany, Switzerland and...where was the other one? Was it France? I can't recall. I know there were 3 different European countries featured in the Christmas market specials I saw. When I was watching the specials I thought, "Oooooh! I love those! Why don't we have any Christmas markets in Los Angeles?" I would be all over that!

In Washington state there is a town called Leavenworth that turns into a whole Christmas village in the month or two leading up to Christmas - they do it up BIG, from what I've seen on TV. They really make Christmas time - the whole season - an event that the entire town participates in, and every home/shop/restaurant gets in on the act. It is a true celebration. I would love love love to go there and see it in person. As much as I love Los Angeles, I would love to live in Leavenworth just for the entire holiday season and then come back to L.A.!

You know, I've suspected for a long time that Disneyland would eventually do a Christmas party. Something has obviously been holding them back from it, because it would be so easy for them to just do it like they do the Halloween party. I think that they wanted to wait until the DCA makeover was complete - this could be to offer alternate holiday options for people who choose not to attend a party in Disneyland, OR it could be because they may start off by having a party in DCA first, before moving it over to DL. (And this would be a great way to debut an all-holiday World of Color or the rumored holiday Toy Story Midway Mania overlay.)

The existing holiday parade and holiday fireworks (which have been around for years) may not be enough to convince the longtime holiday visitors to pay for separate tickets (though the new visitors would probably do it) if they have already seen those events many times. So...it would make sense to throw something 'new' into the party mix to entice everyone to buy tickets - including the longtime holiday guests. And that 'new' thing may end up being the Candlelight Processional, if the 20-night run of the CP scores big this coming holiday season.

I think you should listen to it before!

Thanks for posting the map.
Susiesark -

It seems like a lot of folks are looking for tickets for the sold out nights. Unfortunately, there are no buying/selling forums on this board, and the tickets are technically not supposed to be for resale anyway (unless they are handled through an authorized-by-Disney seller). So if you find tickets it will have to be on your own, away from the DIS.

I'm glad you had a chance to listen to the podcast. If I recall, Mary Jo got into specifics about where to stand for the fireworks in the podcast to be sure to see everything, like the crystall ball, etc. (though I don't recall what her exact recommendation was).

Yes, there is a cavalcade that happens twice per party.
