Merry Thanksweenmas, MiceChatters! The smashed pumpkins have barely had time to dry on Main Street and the Christmas season officially starts later this week at the Disneyland Resort. Let’s take a look around and see all the merry making . . .
The Mickey Floral will be red and green by this time next week . . . if it isn’t already.
The Epicenter of the holidays at Disneyland is Main Street USA. It may be early November and still warm, but it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas to me.
Lot’s of garland with red bows all the way up and down Main Street.
New Orleans Square Decorations
Is it Christmas or Mardi Gras in New Orleans Square? Sometimes it’s hard to tell.
The Riverbelle Terrace redo continues. The kitchen and old quick serve lines are being reconfigured to convert the space into a permanent table service location. The first available reservations are on November 21st.
Haunted Mansion Holiday continues . . .
As in years past, the tree is in the process of being loaded in through the receiving window above the entrance to Splash Mountain. Brer Rabbit has a sense of humor.
Santa will be returning to the meet and greet area in front of Pooh Corner again this year.
As in New Orleans Square, the scale of the Toontown decorations has been dwindling over the years, but it’s still creative and each building is unique.
Pluto’s is one of my favorites. Garlands of mustard and ketchup with a little relish thrown in for good measure.
This and That
it’s a small world Holiday Preparations
Looks like they didn’t take the opportunity to repaint the flume.
Soundsational wrapped up for the season yesterday. A Christmas Fantasy Parade returns this Friday the 10th. What’s unclear is if Soundsational will return after the holidays. The Pixar Play Parade is moving from DCA to Disneyland in the Spring. But will Soundsational make a short return before Pixar takes over? Soundsational is slated to be dismantled so the bases can be reused for a new parade.
Space Mountain Returns To Normal
Saturday was a pleasant day.
It’s been a while since there was a fun new snow globe worth sharing. This one is pretty cool.
Star Wars Merchandise
Dapper Star Wars dresses. That poodle skirt with the AtAt walker . . . brilliant!
Star Wars Land Construction
Enclosure of the show building for the battle escape attraction is well underway. The rooftop is packed with equipent, HVAC and all sorts of pipes.
Rock mountains tower over everything.
Steel supports are waiting for their wire frames . . . more mountains on the way.
Hope you are all enjoying your Thanksweenmas, because the resort is going to get increasingly crowded each week leading into the holidays. We’ll be back with you later this week with a DCA update AND the official start of Christmas . . . at least as far as Disney is concerned.
