  • I think this update just “cost” me a trip to DLR to see the holidays at DCA. I’ll be billing you for that!

    Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that Andy’s photography skills have really deteriorated since 2007?! ;)

    The look back is a great feature! I remember obsessing over the park updates then too. Digital Photography has made leaps, night shots are so clear and beautiful these days. Thanks for the update as always!

    I kind of like the Christmas decorations in Carsland. They are fun and reminiscent of the whimsical Toontown decorations. Enter me in the drawing!

    Holy cow, stop worrying about how a fake car or cars could make cookies and decorate and just enjoy the sights. All this site does is find things to complain about. It’s more of an anti-Disney site than anything.

    The CarsLand decorations look amazing! Can’t wait to see them in person!

    Great update! I can’t wait to make it over to check out the decorations! The addition of the old photos was a nice touch. I can’t believe it’s been 5 years already! Happy 5th Dateline Disneyland!

    Christmas is the only time I’ve never seen at Disneyland, it looks amazing I wish I could go! and I am super excited for this movie.

    Great update Andy, and happy anniversary

    I can’t believe that Dateline Disneyland is 5 years old. A stumble in the internet searching about the DCA made me find this weekly column. They have been a great 5 years. Here to the next 5 years *raises wine glass*

    I think Christmas in Buena Vista Street and Cars Land look great, and there should be no squibbles over Disney character ornaments in the 1920s or how cars decorate, just take it on the chin and enjoy thew festive spirit.

    Thanks again Andy for another great article, and I look forwars to morer Dateline Disneyland articles.

    Christmas is my favorite time of the year – and even with all the crowds – it’s even better when you spend some of it at Disneyland – and now with all the amazing new decorations at DCA – cannot WAIT!! Thanks for the updates – I am relatively new to your blog – but I love every bit of it!! ;)

    Thanks for all the work in maintaining this page. It is the start of my Monday mornings, and takes the sting out of having to go back to work.
