Welcome to the second Disneyland trip report thread by mvf-m11c. For those who have followed me on My First Disneyland Trip Report Mega-Thread that started on October 2010 and ended during the November 2013 trip which I just have completed. It has been 3 and a half years since I started my first big trip report thread which has all of my trip reports from October 2010 to the November 2013. Now I am on my second one and it will continue during the December 2013 trip report which you will be posted shortly. I have done a lot of single Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Trip Report threads in the past and have never done a whole thread all about my trips until the one that just ended. My old DL thread was a lot of fun and I will miss writing my DL trip reports along with other interesting events that I have done. I have done 21 DL trip reports on the old thread and this new one will be one of many to come in the future. This is my thread of all trip reports at all the parks around the world. I have been going to Disney Parks since I was a young child and still continue to this day. I have a lot of great times at the parks and disappointing times at the parks. But no matter what, all the trips are special to me no matter what. Every trip is magical, but the best time for me and my family to go to the parks is definitely Christmas time at the Disneyland Resort. For those who dont know me or have not followed my past trip reports at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. This is me (Bret) and I have been a long time lurker on the boards and member since 2009. Mostly I am on the Disneyland threads from the regular boards, Trip Reports & Community. I am a huge fan of the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. I have been going to the Disneyland Resort ever since I was a little kid and have enjoyed going to the Disney Parks. I have been to Disneyland over 100 times in my life and counting. I have enjoyed every one of them with family, friends, & DISers that I have met in on the boards and met them in real life. I also have been to Walt Disney World 9 times in my life. I am also a Disneyland Annual Passholder since 2009 and still continue the enjoyment of being at the Happiest Place on Earth. I like to videotape the nighttime shows (fireworks, World of Color, Fantasmic! at Disneyland & Disney Hollywood Studios, Illuminations, etc.) and take pictures of anything at the parks that are interesting from flowers, light fixtures, Halloween & Christmas decorations, etc. You can check out my pictures at Flickr or videos on Youtube account since the last 5 years. My favorite rides or transportation are the Disneyland Monorail, Walt Disney World Monorail System, Disneyland Railroad, Walt Disney World Railroad, Radiator Springs Racers, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blast (Disneyland Resort version) and I could go on and on at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. I really enjoy the shows at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World (mostly particular nighttime show). They are the fireworks at the Disneyland Resort Remember Dreams Come True, Believe In Holiday Magic, Magical: Disneys New Nighttime Spectacular of Magical Celebrations. At Walt Disney World is Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams, HalloWishes, & Holiday Wishes: Celebrate The Spirit of the Season. I also like Disney California Adventure World of Color, EPCOTs Illuminations, Disneyland and Disney Hollywood Studios nighttime show Fantasmic!. I do take a lot of photography at the Disney parks. I shoot with a Nikon SLR camera and have been doing it for the last five years. I have taken over 30,000 pictures at the Disney Parks. I have a variety of lenses and filters to use when I am at the parks. The Main Cast of my other Travel Companions that have went with me to the Disney Parks This is the cast that I went to any Disney Parks through all my life and they have been all great and exciting to go. My DAF (my moms sister & aunt that has been going with me the parks a lot). She is mostly known at DA on my trip reports but since my other aunt is with me during the trips we will call her DAF and my other aunt will be DAW. She is a fan of Disney but not as big as me where I always want to go to the Disney parks. But she has been going with me for a lot of years ever since I was a young kid. We have done our annual holiday trip to the DLR ever since early 2000 and still do it every year. She has been with me to a lot of other Disney events that is not at the Disneyland Resort from the D23 Expos, Walt Disney Studios Tour, & Walt Disney World. My DAW (my dads sister). She just started to go on Disney trips ever since she went with me and my DB back in 2012 during the WDW trip. Ever since, she has been with me to three Disneyland Resort trips last year (January, June & December 2013). My DB (brother). He is not a big of a fan of Disney Parks like me or my DA but he does like to go once in a while with his GF when they are in SoCal. We have been to a lot of Disney Parks (DL & WDW) over the years and he still enjoys going once in a while. I could go on and on of the other party members that have been with me to the Disney Parks but my family on the top are the ones that have gone with me to the parks multiple times over the years.
