    Love the way Buena Vista Street looks – can’t wait to see it in person!
    Not so sure about the railings on Casey Junior – but if they look better in person, then that’s a relief. Though, it’s a shame they needed to be added at all.

    WOW! I’m so excited to go again next week and take some time to really check out all the stores in Buena Vista street…I was there last week but missed a lot of details…is the Iron Man ride in Tomorrowland for sure? …or still just a possibility

    Storybook Land and Casey Jr. are two of our family’s favs. Glad to see that the work is complete. It doesn’t look too distracting and my kids will hardly notice.

    Thx for the update! We can’t wait to pick up the holiday edition of the Buena Vista Bugle. It’s been a “mission” of ours to try and pick up each new edition. Let’s hope they continue printing these for a long time.

    Wonderful update! I’m excited to see the park-specific xmas merchandise available this year–so much better than the generic stuff that’s usually for sale. I love the “look back” section too–cool to see how far we’ve come. Thanks for a great job!

    The Casey Jr. railings are much less obtrusive than I had originally feared. Great update as always Andy!

    Great update. Especially the look back at DCA 1.0! There’s nothing else like X-mas at Disneyland. Not even WDW comes close!

    I love Disney at Christmas time! Disneyland is the original and still the greatest in my eyes! I will miss it this year becuase of deployment, but seeing it through your regular updates almost feels like I am there again! When I am back…my recovery leave will be spent – in part – at Disneyland…after all, if its good enough for Super bowl Champions, then it HAS to be good for returning Soldiers! Thanks for the great updates and for letting me live vicariously through them as I miss the holdiays with my family and Disney this year!

    Out of town for 2 weeks – seeing all of the holiday pictures in today’s update made me feel like I was at my home away from home. Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving, and Happy Anniversary!!

    Awesome update :) Christmas is the best time of the year.

    The rails look nice, however I still wish some of these rides could be “grandfathered” in. Thanks for the updates. Look forward to Monday’s (just for the update!).
