    More to look forward when I visit this week! I was hoping I wouldn’t miss the candy canes:)

    Amazing update! The new prices make it so hard to afford trips to disneyland!

  • rstar

    Great update! And now that the front planter to the right of DCA is finished, it’s hard to believe that the DCA reconstruction is finally DONE! I wonder what the next project will be over there? Also, the pictures from the past remind me how much they have done, and how much the did all at once! Wow!

    I’ve looked and asked on a board before, but maybe someone can answer me here. Why was the terrazzo floor replaced in front of Carthay? I’ve seen the progress in the updates here, but was just in the parks a few days ago and saw it in person. Looks pretty much the same. Anyone know why? Thanks! And thanks for the great updates!

    The hotels and Trader Sams are looking spiffy with the Xmas decor. Holiday Village not so much..

    Seeing the tree in the Grand is making me excited for our upcoming trip.

    Great update & look at the recent past! Thanks!

    We went on that crowded Monday (Nov. 19) and had a very nice time. My favorite part was hearing the Buena Vista Street carolers & bell ringers.

      P.S. And we bumped into the great Fishbulb himself hard at work taking pictures in Toontown. Much more exciting than meeting Mickey!

        Fishbulb is better than Mickey and has helped me out here on Dateline Disneyland many times over the last five years! ;)

    Enjoyable update as always.

    Is this a typo?

    “Silly Symphony Swings: Closed January 7, 2013 through November 17 for refurbishment.”

    Sounds like an overly long refurb.

    • Andy Castro

      Thanks for catching that. The correct dates are January 7 through February 17.

    One day we’ll be there in time to get the candy canes.

    Thanks again for the update!

    Great update as usual. Holidays are more magical at the parks. Planning a trip out to the coast sometime next year.

    The candy canes are fantastic! We were lucky enough to get some last year and they are the best tasting candy canes I have ever had.
