    Lotsa Photos: Holiday magic - Disneyland Photos at Night!

    After the Christmas parade, Napa Rose, and Candlelight Processional, we decided to visit the park and take in some of the Holiday details. Quite a few photos for your viewing:

    Before last month, I hadn't been to Disneyland during Christmas for 20 years (1986), but I thought the tree they have up is just amazingly beautiful and full of little details:

















    And the Castle, with the high intensity lights used, looks especially densely lit:


    I haven't seen the TV commercials, but I loved the snowman in his snowglobe:



    By the way we were in the park Thursday night, 48 hours before these pics were taken, and I don't recall a snow globe up that night.

    The garlands over Main Street:


    Onto Small World, which is just beautiful at night! My Mom commented that it looks larger with all those lights:







    And in we go:




    Yes, yes, Joyous Fetus!


    And I have no idea who Annee is, but Bonne to her:


    This reminded me of my trip to Venice, where we were just over a week ago:


    Fro heritage... uh, the history of 'fros"?



    Yay, the fireworks started! And everyone said it would be too windy! Oh wait, that's no firework...


    Feliz Navidad everyone! Y prospero Ano Nuevo!


    Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say... on a bright and sunny Hawaiian Day...



    Someone's in trouble - they're not only in the hot seat, but were told to face the wall:


    Flaky Christmas Tree:


    It's raining Jack (in the box)! Hallelujiah!



    Peas on Earth -- maybe in soup?



    Storybook Boats at night is always a treat, especially with the little holiday wreaths and Christmas trees, but only these photos came out:

    Cinderella: Movin' on up!



    Aladdin's Lamp! Hey, I dream of Jeannie also!


    Afterwards, we ran into the Pinocchio Christmas shop where I saw LuvsLilo while we were exiting, and, of course, the dancing pinocchio:


    Haunted Mansion Holiday:











    And then onwards - to SPACE MOUNTAIN. This was important, because it was the first time that FrogWife had ever ridded Space Mountain. She notoriously hates roller coasters, so California Screamin', Tower of Terror, Maliboomer, Mulholland Madness, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, the Matterhorn, and Space Mountain are out of the question. She told me that what she hates about the fast rides are the drops. She loves Pirates, however, and when I told her that Pirates has worse drops than Space Mountain, she agreed to try it out for the first time.

    (See? I can be persuasive. That's why we're married).

    The results of our experiment are at the end, but first a few pictures from the inside:







    AND NOW, without further delay, here's the picture of her first ride on Space Mountain!

    Great trip report Froggy! Your pictures turned out really good. I'm not sure if it's your camera or your professional picture-taking abilities.
    Congrats on getting FrogWife to sit on Space Mountain. I had to do the same kind of convincing for Goofygoof. He'll sit on all the rides except California Screamin'. I'm still trying to convince him to get on that one.

    Thanks! I blame the camera. I'm not sure how she rode through Space Mountain with her head down and her eyes closed the entire time, but by darn, she did it!

    Your commentary is hilarious…facing the wall I just LOVE all the details on the tree. It’s so pretty and shiny at night…

    i love your wife's name on the board. too cute.

    see, when i read this (i myself haven't been on space in over 10 years due to getting naseous after riding it), i said to myself "LIAR!!!" (think 'princess bride' - joking tone) but at least she was a good sport.

    So even with her eyes closed.....did she like it?
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!
