    Christmas at Disneyland and DCA is beautiful this year. I am so pleased and happy to have a warm winter feeling here in Southern California. It reminds me of my cold hometown but without all the cold!!

    Awesome update!! I can’t wait to make it to the parks during the holidays – hopefully one day! Thank You for the look back, that part I really enjoyed and remembered vividly!

    I’d decorate my whole house like this if I could! We’ve never been during the holidays and can’t wait to see this all in person! Great update as always!!

    I love the Santa set-up in Elias and Co. Very clever and good use of space!!!!!!
    Now only if we had the reindeer back this year at Disneyland.

    Crossing my fingers to win a prize! :)

    Any reviews of the Monte Cristo Bites? We’re taking the Gran’Daughter for Christmas and I’d like to know how kids are enjoying them.


    I’m liking the attraction posters displayed like this, but I’m sure there are too many people who want the iconic Floral Mickey picture for this to happen. What about putting the attraction posters along the railing starting about 3/4 of the way between Mickey’s head & the end of the fence?

    Always some great photos from Andy! Thanks for the Christmas update. I really enjoy the pictures when I don’t have time to get to the parks myself.

    Yeah I don’t usually decorate for Christmas by placing body parts all over the place… Maybe Halloween, but putting body parts all over the place no. Just no. I actually really enjoy Cars Land, but the decorations are just odd.

    I love how they brought back the cookie decorating! I remember when Haunted Mansion Holiday first took place, they had Lock, Shock and Barrel blank cookies to be decorated with their respective colors.

    I hope to win so I can take my boyfriend for his first time :D

    Congratulations on 5 years! I only found this a little over a year ago but I look forward to reading your updates every week. Keep up the great work. I also liked the looked back at the end.
