Pjimmeyer - I think that when and if a Christmas party comes to DLR, it will definitely be for fewer nights than the one at WDW. The Halloween party at DLR doesn't have as many nights as the one at WDW, I don't think - or does it? There are 10 Halloween party nights at DLR, so I would imagine that a Christmas party would be about the same number of nights, possibly even less than that. And a Christmas party at DLR would probably start later in the season than the WDW party starts. As for whether or not it would be a big deal locally, I think so. Even though having a Christmas party in Disneyland itself would cause all kinds of backlash due to certain events suddenly becoming paid party exclusives, if they added in just one extra thing to make it enticing, I think the crowds would still go. And if they were to have a party in DCA amd make something like a holiday version of WoC the focal point, people would definitely show up. Basically I think people will show up for whatever Disney puts out there to the public, even at crazy prices! I think people would love a Christmas party. abwdreaming - You mean just regular candy and not candy canes? I am not sure about that. I have never bought a freshly made piece of candy from there, but I tend to think you may be more likely to get a totally fresh piece at Marceline's in Downtown Disney than at the Candy Palace. Maybe someone else here knows about freshly made candy? Kim - There are no silly questions. It is tricky how Disney handles their unveiling of the holiday season in stages, so it can be confusing! I have heard that the way WDW handles their holiday season is greatly different from what DLR does. WDW may roll out some holiday things much earlier than DLR does in November, but WDW may not officially start their holiday season until after DLR starts theirs. It sounded very complicated, the way it was explained to me! Yes, the giant Main Street tree and the Mickey wreaths/garland on Main Street will be up on the official opening day of the season. Most of the decor will actually be up before opening day, but the official start date is when you know it will be there for sure, along with the entertainment. Everything will be up and running on that first day of the season, except for the 3 hotels' decorations and some stuff in DTD, which don't appear until after Thanksgiving ends. lconn - The actual DLR schedule for 2011 has not been put out yet. I wouldn't pay attention to whatever you found when you tried to get to next month/previous month. The November 2011 holiday entertainment schedule will not come out until about 6 weeks prior to the start of the season, approximately. And the December schedule will come about 6 weeks before December. I have got the November 2010 and December 2010 links - as you saw - on the first page of this thread. At first, when we went into December 2010 and tried to scroll to the previous month to get November 2010, it took us to a November 2011 page. So mvf-m11c (Bret) went in and found the specific November 2010 page so I could post the link for it in Post #3. I would guess that whoever manages that particular calendar (from wdwinfo.com) has not realized yet that they've got stuff showing for 2011 that has not even been announced yet! I am fairly positive that the November/December hours and schedules for 2011 will be mostly the same, or very similar, to the ones from 2010. The season certainly has not gotten any less popular, that's for sure, so unless DLR is planning on a Christmas party this year which would affect hours, I think everything will be pretty much the same.
