Yesterday was a lovely day to be at the Disneyland Resort. Christmas arrived early with the taping of Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade. My first stop was to grab Fastpass' for Space Mountain.
It looks like Sleeping Beauty Castle is pretty much ready for the Holiday season.
I then went to get in line for the Matterhorn, but it broke down while we were in line.
I then went round to Toontown & rode Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin & Gadget's Go-Coaster.
Then I went on the Disneyland Railroad for a roundtrip, & then continuing on to the Tomorrowland Station.
I then used my Fastpass' for Space Mountain.
I then got back in line for the Matterhorn Bobsleds, & it actually was running!
I then went in to eat at the Plaza Inn for my first ever time eating there. It was absolutely delicious!
Giant Mickey balloons, probably for the What Will You Celebrate? promotion next year.
The Princess Christmas Ball float.
Followed, weirdly enough, by the Bolt Pre-Parade float.
Hey look, it's Ryan Seacrest!
We leave Disneyland Park for now with a look at its’ awesome new park map.
Time to head over to DCA!

Then I headed over to Toy Story Midway Mania
I then headed over to Soarin' Over California to use my Fastpass' (which I had got when I entered the park).
The latest DCA park map features Toy Story Midway Mania, in a generic, but very cool design.
Then I headed over to A Bug's Land where I went on It's Tough to be a Bug & Heimlich's Chew Chew Train.
I then headed out of DCA & back into Disneyland.
I got in line for the Princess Fantasy Faire, but unfortunately my parents called me to meet up with them, so I had to get out of the line. I headed over & rode the Jungle Cruise, followed by Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion Holiday, & Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
The Plaza Pavilion is finally out from behind tarps & construction walls, after 11 months of work.
A look at the new Christmas store in the Courtyard of Angels.
Haunted Mansion Holiday all lit up at night.
I went & sat for the Parade of Dreams, as its last 2008 performance is on November 11th, & it won’t be returning until February due to A Christmas Fantasy Parade at first, & then the Main Street re-paving project. Here are a few of my best shots.
After that I got a pin for me & a pin for a friend from the Emporium, & a coffee from the Market House & then headed out.
