    I posted about this in the Christmas/Holiday Season Superthread, but for those of you who do not follow that thread (even though you should!;)), here is the link to a new blog from the Disney Parks Blog, which confirms that Cars Land and Buena Vista Street will have themed decorations (this had been the rumor all along, but this is the first official word of it!) for the holiday season:

    Also, the season dates have finally been announced as November 12, 2012 - January 6, 2013 - which we already knew months ago, but it's nice of Disney to confirm them!

    Some highlights:

    dalstitch45 -

    You're very welcome! Thank you for the kind words!

    I, too, can't wait to see the decorations. I'm hoping that there will be even more little things here and there that the Parks Blog didn't mention.

    For one thing, I am pretty sure that the popular freshly made candy canes are going to be made at Trolley Treats this year but there was no mention of that (I wonder if that plan has been postponed for another year).

    Also, I think that the main DCA Christmas tree is going to move out of Paradise Pier and over to Buena Vista Street (which likely means totally different ornaments to fit the vintage theme), but is Santa's photo spot going to move there as well, or will Santa maintain his post on Paradise Pier?

    They allude to something in the blog about the Mad T Party having "wintertime fun." Does this mean that decorations will return to Hollywood?

    They mentioned nothing about the Pixie Hollow winter overlay, which is supposed to happen from Fall through the end of the year, I think.

    Also, I posted a comment on the Parks Blog hours and hours ago - I was saying that I hope the New Orleans Square decorations and the Toon Town decorations are part of the "Returning Favorites." (Those are very important to the whole season, I think.)

    My comment never appeared in the Comments section. They didn't put it up, as of the last time I checked. Interesting.

    If they get rid of the NOS and TT decorations, I would be shocked...but also extremely disappointed, as those are two of the most interesting areas of DL during the season.

    Interestingly, my comment/question about New Orleans Square and Toon Town decorations never showed up in the Comments under the Parks Blog - not even overnight. I see some names in those comments that I see under almost every DLR-related blog. I see that one girl got at least two separate comments up. But mine was not posted.

    I didn't expect an answer to anything - most of those bloggers for the Parks Blog answer a question or two and then stop responding. But it is curious that whoever screens their comments didn't let mine through.:confused3
