    DCA has changed but it still needs work in some areas, my family and I where there in October and really enjoyed ourselves.

    I don’t know if I filled with joy for the season, or sadness that I can’t make it to the park. Thanks for the updates, whichever it is.

    Love ya!

    Thanks for all the updates. We go to Disneyland Next Week! I’ve been watching here with anticipation. The hubby wants to see the new Carsland, since he loves Cars. So I guess we get to get in line real early to get our Fastpass tickets.
    Again, thank you for all the updates. You people are fabulous.

    Looking forward to seeing if we can actually snag a candy cane this year. Last year we got cut off with just a few people in front of us each time. I’m hoping that I have a bit more luck this time around!

    Great Update !!! And Happy Holidays to all. I gotta get me some of those Candy Canes. In fact, my daughter has off this Thursday, so it seems I will be getting wet on a slow day at DLR.

    One day I hope to get myself a candy cane, or more importantly just see then being made. I’m infamous for stopping to watch the candy makers work through the windows.

    Congrats again on 5 years!

    Great update! Planning to come Dec 14-16. I’m so excited to have Earl of Sandwich and enjoy all the Christmas decorations for the first time at DCA!

    Thanks for the update! We fly out today from Utah. I know we probably won’t get a candy cane, but at least we’ll know which day to try for this year! Love all the photos and this was the perfect way to get ready for our trip!!

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Oh, to be in Disneyland and the GORGEOUS new DCA for Christmas! Wow, just breathtaking….thanks for the pictures and article. Almost as good as being there. :) One of these days, I’ll just have to be there to get my hands on a candy cane. Congratulations, Imagineers, on a truly impressive upgrade to DCA. It feels like the holidays now after seeing these pics.

    Wonderful post, I love seeing the park all decked out in Christmas decorations! It was nice taking a look into the past, too, and seeing how far the DCA has come. Wish I could be there!

    Love the Pictures and all the information. It would be nice to know more on how soon the candy canes usually sell out on any given day! Thanks for keeping me up to date!
