There’s no denying it, the Holidays have arrived at the Disneyland Resort. Some of it is wonderful and some a bit disappointing. But there’s one real standout as Christmas zooms into California Adventure’s Cars Land. We’ll show you all the high octane decorations. It’s a great week to be In The Parks, let’s take a look.
FANTASY FAIRE VILLAGE CONSTRUCTION
In other news the Fantasy Faire Village is becoming more and more defined.
FANTASYLAND THEATRE REFURBISHMENT
More work has also been done on the control booth inside the Fantasyland Theatre.
More atrocious decorations are being strewn in Toontown. It is such a shame to see the standard fall here from the whimsical, less cookie-cutter, decorations of yore.
DISNEY CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE DECORATES FOR CHRISTMAS
There is great news coming out of Disney California Adventure. The new Christmas decorations that are appearing in the new areas of the park are simply wonderful. What’s even better, they aren’t going the cheap route and simply stringing bits of garland along the buildings outside. No, they are giving this area the Main Street U.S.A treatment and doing the buildings in thematically appropriate ways both inside and out.
A large tree sits in the planter in front of Elias and Company, facing the Carthay Circle Theater.
We move inside and find holiday touches which are just as charming.
Inside the Elias and Company department store, each area has its own unique flavor, just as any department store would have.
Five and Dime gets festive as well:
Women’s Department is dressed in its holiday finest:
Not to be outdone by the Women, the Men’s Department also gets fancy:
The Jewelry department has been reworked as a Holiday rotunda of sorts. It will be home to an old school department store Santa meet and greet.
Another wonderful thing we noticed were the awesome Christmas designs on the print T shirts and sweaters. So vintage and fun!
Notice, it says “From Disney California Adventure Park”.
If you liked the decorations in Buena Vista Street you will go nuts and bolts over the additions in Cars Land.
Above the main drag, bunting made of tires and air filters hang between the light poles and telephone poles.
Out in front of each one of the locations on the street, there are unique tree creations that reflect the character they were made by.
Taking a quick side trip into Ramone’s we also see that the doorway leading to the expanded floor space for the store is now complete. This area should be opening any day now.
Even though Buena Vista Street has its own tree, Paradise Pier is keeping its tree as well. It’s a lovely one too.
MUPPET VISION 3D GETS PREPPED FOR LANDING
The Muppet Vision 3D attraction will be down until Friday November 16th, a full week after the Holiday Season officially begins at the Disneyland Resort. When the venue reopens it will house a new Prep and Landing 4D attraction for the holidays.
That wraps things up for us this week at the Disneyland Resort. We will be back next week with a full review and rundown of all the Christmas offerings at the resort. Let us know what you think of Disneyland Christmas so far.
We also have an update on filming of the Saving Mr. Banks film at Disneyland for you HERE
