    I know I say this every week, but thankyou for another terrific Dateline Disneyland! I very much appreciate the work that goes into these. The look back at earlier Datelines is still a real treat!
    Fingers crossed for one of the runner-up prizes,I’ll leave the hotel package for a US resident!
    Thanks! -Q.

    It’s interesting to see the construction pictures again. So much has changed.

    I’m going to be visiting December 12th and 13th… will just miss the hand made Candy Canes… Sadness!

    I’m brand new to the forums here on Mice Chat but it’s great to be joining in the chat! I found you through HoJo Anaheim’s Facebook page–we always stay with HoJo Anaheim and love it! Thank you for sharing ALL the fantastic DLR photos in this article but especially the DCA timeline was so interesting to view the progression. We have not visited in a few years but would love to see all the new things happening and being built in both parks in person. The candy canes are always fun (and tasty), and although we’ve never been to the candlelight ceremonies it sounds very festive. Happy Holidays to all of you at Mice Chat, HoJo and in the forums! :-D

    I have attempted to make candy canes, and mine never look like Disneyland’s.

    I really hope I win! It’s all I want before our baby is born in May. I need a babymoon, and Disneyland is my happiest place on earth :)
