Christmas at Disneyland!

Two of my favorite things...Christmas and Disneyland, and when these two are combined, it's like heaven on earth for me!

If you have never been to Disneyland during the christmas season, I highly recommend you go. Not only is it beautiful, but it is magical! It puts you in the Christmas spirit and makes you feel like a kid all over again. From the sights to the sounds, it's amazing.

Main Street USA is all decked out with lights, decorations and a Christmas Tree that stands over 65 feet tall. The Main Street USA tree has over 2300 ornaments, and TONS of lights! There are Mickey shaped wreaths that line the street and ribbon, lots and lots of ribbon. You can check out all the fun facts about the Disney decorations directly from the Disney Blog.

The rest of the park is full of decorations as well. Each Land is specifically themed. There are so many Christmas trees scattered all through out the park. The Castle has been transformed into a winter wonderland. There is even a special enchanted Castle Dream Lights cermony in the evening. It is AMAZING!! And yes, it even snows at Disneyland!

My sons favorite part about Christmas at Disneyland is “A Christmas Fantasy” parade. He loves seeing all the characters, Gingerbread people, Reindeer and most of all Santa.

Have I convinced you to go yet? Well, if not here are a few more reasons:
-->Candy Apples
-->Characters dressed for the Holiday
-->It's A Small World transformed with thousands of lights- and featuring "Jingle Bells" and "deck the Halls"
-->Mickey Santa Hats
--> The Haunted Mansion Holiday featuring The Nightmare Before Christmas
--> Listening to Christmas Carols sung by real carolers on Main Street
--> Visiting Santa and his Reindeer at the Big Thunder Ranch
--> The Holiday Fireworks

Not in Southern California? Well if you are anywhere near DisneyWorld, you can check out the holidays there too! Cinderellas Castle has been decked out in over 200,000 lights!! You heard right, 200,00! Check out this post form the Disney Blog that highlights this attraction: 200,000 Lights Transforms Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World.

I hope you get a chance to go. It really is the best thing ever! Merry Christmas everyone!!

I LOVE Disney at Christmas! I miss having an annual pass =( The holidays are always so cool there, especially Halloween and Xmas!

I don't remember the icicles on the castle? Is that new within the past two years? Or have i just missed it like every year?
