    I wish I had won one of the Candlelight AP tickets, but thanks for a great update!

    Having not been to the park since I moved to Las Vegas, I have to say that the park has never looked better. DCA was never without problems but it has become a park I’m just itching to spend a day or two visiting. Thank you for wheting my DIsneyland appetite every monday. I’m seriously considering spending a week there this spring just to get reaquainted with the whole park.

    Nice update! Love Dateline Disneyland; read it every week, even if I was there for everything you’re reporting!

    I wish I could be there, but your updates keep me in touch. Thanks so much!

    What a difference two years makes. I can’t wait to see all the completed changes.

    Happy Anniversary Dateline Disneyland! Hope everyone is staying warm and dry, especially under those new awnings.

    I miss the old front entrance to DCA and the golden gate bridge. Don’t get me wrong – I love the new Buena Vista Street… just miss the old, too! :) Thanks, Andy!

    Thanks as always for the weekly updates! So much to see at the parks this holiday season. DCA looks especially nice. Let’s hope that if they decide to do extended Candlelight next year (special ticket event or otherwise) they are held in the FL Theater. It really clutters up Town Square during the daytime.

    Another great update as usual! :D

    Love the photos, as always.

    Interesting to see what happens with the Candlelight processional. If AP performances are cancelled, what are they going to do about the APers up in arms?

    I don’t think the Candlelight set up is an eye sore…I saw it Friday and it gave me goosebumps cuz I was so excited it was here.

    Back in 2005 my high school choir got invited to sing in that years candlelight and it is one of the best disney experiences I have! Standing up on that stage and singing to the crowds at Disneyland is something I will never forget! I hope those who get to sing now enjoy it as much as I did!
