I noticed that many schedule their Christmas trips to Disneyland after labor day (Nov 12th, on). I decided to skip the whole parade thing and schedule my vacation from Nov 9, 10 and 11th in the park. I was trying to avoid lines, really, and all I want to see are the decorations (I've never EVER been to Disneyland during Christmas, and I'm 32!).
I received an email from Disneyland customer support that decorations go up the 9th and official celebrations start the 12th. I'm planning to purchase the non-socal Deluxe or Premium AP to save money and give myself the option of visiting Disneyland at least 4 times a year.
First, despite all the posts about Christmas, I want to know what you would suggest I look at first this year, with this being my first time ever attending Christmas in DLC. Secondly, do any of you feel that passes are even worth it if I want to go at least four times in the next 12 months? Stupid question, maybe, but I thought I'd ask anyway. I know financially it will save money on tickets, but with blockout dates and all, you seasoned APH's may have some sound advice for a noob like me.
Thanks in advance!
