    So I had a little extra time this week and headed over to the park hoping to catch some rain while I was there. While I missed out on the rain as it came much later, I did manage to arrive on Tuesday just before the Christmas Fantasy parade began. As I was anxious to try out my 70-300 lens for the first time on some daytime parade shots, (The bag check folks didn't look twice at it, even though it's officially 5 1/2 inches retracted) I found a spot at the hub looking up towards the Matterhorn and started clicking away.

    Before the parade, however, the official Disneyland voice announced that Price Caspian was making his way down first.

    This first shot cracked me up. His banner carriers look pretty excited...




    Next came the prince. That's a very friendly horse he's riding, isn't it? Big kiss!








    You don't have to be a mind reader to know this guy's thoughts...




    And finally it was parade time...


    With the music box...







    ...and Toy Soldiers...





    Donald....




    and Daisy...




    and Pluto...




    and Mrs. Claus...




    and the very talented roller skating snowflakes...












    and of course...

    Mickey...




    and Minnie...

    Cool so far.

    I would not want to be the guy following the horse.

    Part II - Christmas Fantasy Parade..

    Next up were the gingerbread people...





    Followed by Max...




    ...helping his dad...




    I have a new found respect for Froggy, Photomatt, Armadillo4, and several others of you who have posted amazing shots from the parade as it's a bugger trying to shoot them as they're prancing around. It's also more complicated in low light, as it was clouding up at 3:45 on Tuesday. If you stop to make an adjustment, that character is already gone, and you'll get a lovely shot of the back of their head.

    In any event, here's evil mom and her two daughters...




    ...which were really quite good...









    This lady is terrific. You could see the small kids in the front cowering away from her...




    On the other side of the spectrum, all the kids were waving to Ariel...and she was rather popular with the dads too...

    Pre-parades will usually run when the movie is being released in theaters, & for the DVD release. The Prince Caspian pre-parade runs in front of the 3:30 A Christmas Fantasy, & the Bolt pre-parade runs in front of the 6:30 parade.
