    So looking forward to our visit between Christmas and New Year!

    Question: does anyone know why it would take 10-11 months to renovate “Silly Symphony Swings”????

    I love all the lurkers coming out and posting to be part of the contest! Well, I guess I am one of them too now… Guess you’ll just have to do some more contests, eh? ;-)

    All kidding aside, I can’t believe it’s been 5 years! I remember when I found out about Dateline Disneyland, I went back and read every single post. Thank you to everyone involved with this project and the continual effort to keep it going!

    Love the column as always. It is a staple of my Mondays.

    Just a quick question on a couple of your pics. How are you able to get pictures of the tree and lights at night and have them look so great? I read a few articles that always say the blue hour or dusk is best but your night shots are fantastic. Hopefully you can pass along your secret.

    Keep up the great work.
