    DLR 11/22 - No Characters Again, Small World, & Beautiful Lighting!

    I had a lovely day at just Disneyland Park yesterday, that again featured no characters, but it did feature some great Christmas stuff:


    New billboards at the Mickey & Friends Tram Station


    The new snowflake structures at the Disneyland turnstiles




    Belle & Snow White were out doing meet 'n greets with a minimal wait. I was with my friend, & he didn't want to go meet, it killed me! LoL!

    Our first stop was to go check out the Fastpass's for Space Mountain. But they were for later than we expected to be there, so we just went ahead & waited in the 45 minute long line.


    The amazing Main Street Christmas tree




    The majestic Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle

    After riding Space Mountain we wanted to go ride Indiana Jones Adventure. But we got stuck on the Tomorrowland side of Main Street while A Christmas Fantasy was going by, so we caught the first couple floats of the parade.


    I saw some interesting things going on on this float, but I didn't get pictures unfortunately








    Wish I could of got closer to this section of the parade. I love these performers!

    We got Fastpass' for Indy, but rode it anyway, with a 50 minute wait. After that I got turkey leg over in Frontierland & then walked through to Fantasyland where I dragged my friend on It's a Small World Holiday. Here are a few of my favorite shots of many:






    The lights switched on when we were in line! WOOT!




















    Who here can spy a Disney character?




    The new Rainforest scene






    The new sun






    After that I headed round to ride Splash Mountain & got friggen soaked! We walked past Winnie the Pooh, & it had no wait what-so-ever, so we went ahead & rode it.




    After that we grabbed Fastpass' for Haunted Mansion Holiday & then used our Fastpass' for Indiana Jones Adventure. We then rode Pirates of the Caribbean, followed by Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.


    Then we used our Fastpass' for Haunted Mansion Holiday.


    Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle as seen from the queue for HMH

    We then popped on the train from New Orleans Square to Main Street.


    It's a Small World as seen from the Train

    We got off the train & headed up to Fantasyland to ride the Matterhorn Bobsleds.








    This is the Matterhorn, if you can't tell

    After the Matterhorn I headed round to Tomorrowland Terrace & grabbed a coffee & some fries (I had an incompetant CM who didn't know what the hell I was saying, so I actually ended up getting the fries for free!)

    Believe In Holiday Magic started so we slowly walked back to the hub, & when we got to the Hub, the snowfall started. It was slow getting out, but I did, eventually.


    Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle looks really nice from the Hub!


    LEDs on the trees in the Hub




    One last look at the Main Street Christmas tree


    The snowflake structures all lit up at night


    The great new design for the Disneyland Park map


    Pixie Hollow is now featured on the times guide

    THE END!

    Well, my friend really didn't want to this time, & in some ways I don't blame it. Don't worry Captain, I plan to next time definitely. I actually hope to go to both PFF & Pixie Hollow!

    LoL... It doesn't quite work like that being a teen, especially in the 21st century. What are you going to do if I don't get characters next time? LoL!

    I, for one am glad there were not so many princess and pixie photos this time around. Even though some of your shots came out blurry, they looked really cool and artsy!

    I will be honest' while I am an outspoken critic of the new characters ' I must admit I never would have noticed Flounder there if Luke did not point him out.
