    The decorations look great. However the Holiday Village is just out of place. I’m sorry but if i want to go to a Holiday Village I will go down the street to Knott’s Berry Farm. Their Holiday Village is done the correct way and Knott’s is the perfect place for it NOT at Downtown Disney. It looks so out of place and just wrong. Also the skating rink you have to wear a helmet yet at other rinks around (Downtown LA, Queen Mary, Fallbrook location) no helmet is required. Kind of a shame really because ice skating is all about having fun not having to wear a protective helmet. I doubt i will even try out the one in Downtown Disney for that reason.

    I really enjoy all of the updates. It is part of my Monday morning ritual. It helps me out when I have a “case of the Mondays.” :) It is a nice distraction from a boring conference call I attend every Monday morning. Not to mention a little trip to DL every week.
