    Disneyland - November 22, 2009

    So, I went to Disneyland and got to see the holiday decorations for the 2009 season, and i have to say...I love it . I did a whole trip report here: Ryan-Philipp Valle : Blog Blog Archive Trip & Photo Report: Disneyland

    But some details I missed to state in the original report:
    Crowds: Much larger than anticipated. I arrived at 11am and got nice parking at Mickey and Friends, but apparently, early comers were detoured to the garden walk, deceiving me of the true crowd levels in the park. Inside, we saw a healthy size crowd, with waits ranging from 45 minutes for indy, 20 for pirates, 45 for haunted, and 50 for space.

    Fireworks: Seemed to be the EXACT same show from last years, not making any use of the new effects we saw during magical and halloween screams.

    It's a Small World: Noticed a few different things in the decorations and the disney characters stayed in place

    Pizza Port: The BBQ Pizza is gone (it was my favorite) and was replaced with a holiday pizza, which didn't taste as good.

    Carts: they had carts which sold hot cocoa in mugs

    Carolers: Gone from the park and moved to the hotels. I was upset about this

    Anyways, enjoy the report and photos I posted above, or if you don't want to scroll, here's the link again: Ryan-Philipp Valle : Blog Blog Archive Trip & Photo Report: Disneyland

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the report. by the way, the hot chocolate is pretty good. Crowds we NOT too bad on Saturday (Nov 21st) I actually thought the amount of people was light.

    BTW - Disney likes to call it "Festive" When its crowded.

    lol. Yeah, Saturday crowds tend to be lighter since most of the APs are blacked out. haha

    being festive on more crowded days makes me laugh haha. its more people, but often, bigger crowds just lead more more irritated guests ahah

    Just a regular pizza with some "special toppings" on it. From what I recall, there were some tomatoes, i think it was chicken, mushroom? and some green stuff... They had a different sign up, but when I asked the CM working the area if they had any BBQ pizza left, they always referred to it as the holiday pizza.

    lol i dont know. i was shooting around that day and my brother says it's crazy how i just take the picture while walking haha.

    my concept is that if you're going to take pictures, don't stop to do them because you're bound to block somebody's way behind you. but if you do follow this tip, be sure what's in front of you because you don't want to walk into a pole, pond, garden, or worse, somebody else
