What Ride(S) WOuld You Like to see Holiday Themed or Refurbed! There are only 2 right now and i think its time disneyland and/or DCA came up with a new one as well!
There are like 2 1/2 rides. They make StorybookLand all Christmas-y. They don't do a huge thing like HM or Small World, but they put lights on the houses, wreaths, Xmas trees, and Poinsettia.
I think it would be cool if they re-did Pooh...oh wait, that's the regular version. I think Splash would be kinda cool.

Rides should be holiday themed because they have some kind of story attachment. HMH is great because it ties in perfectly with the HM theme, Christmas, and its own theme. If Disney starts making all their rides holidayn themed for the sake of the Christmas season, then rides lose their personality. The Haunted Mansion is toungue in cheek anyway, but to have a Christmas theme in say, Pirates, would be a step backward since Pirates has a more serious tone.
It wouldn't really make sense to theme the Fantasyland attractions either, especially since they have nothing to tie themselves in with Christmas at all. And if Disney tried to somehow to do that, we have the equivalent of a cheap straight to video 2D movie about "Peter Pan's 1st Christmas"... Blah...
Not to mention the fact that the more rides are themed, the more rides go down for rehab, and anyone who visited the parks pre-May 5th can tell, Disneyland with a bunch of walls and signs is not very much fan, especially to the person who payed full price for his family of 6 to get in!
It's hard to theme DCA because Southern California doesn't really change that much in real life during the Winter months. In the forest area by the Grand Californian Hotel, they could cover everything with snow, but other than that, there's not much you could do besides cover everything with lights...
Another point to keep in mind is that not everybody celebrates Christmas, let alone the holidays. So if there were Santa Hats EVERYWHERE, it might get a little annoying for some people, especially those who aren't Christian. I mean, it's DISNEYland, not JESUSland. (Not trying to offend anybody) Also, there are many people who are only able to come during the holidays, and enjoy seeing the original rides. I know one person who can only come during the holiday season and is getting pretty tired of seeing HMH, and really just wants to see the regular HM again. Maybe if they theme one more ride, then start switching them off? For example, this year have HMH and IASWH, the next year IASWH and Matterhorn Holiday (or whatever holiday themed ride), then the next year Matterhorn holiday and HMH, and so on. This would also mean that certain rides would not always be closed at certain times if the year (IE HMH during september). And, if they periodically took breaks from doing the holiday overlays, maybe they could add more and make them slightly different each year. Not to mention that the overlays would become more special if they were more infrequent.
I'd love for them to do all the Xmas stuff over at DCA. Since I don't and never planning on going to DCA, that way I won't have to look at all that crap over in DL.

Reason for the Season? Tilt of the planet's axis. Oh, you meant the holiday season? That's easy - Feast of Saturnalia. Disagree? That's nice.

OK, no offense, but the color of your text kills my eyes, so I just kinda skip over your posts.
I'm sure you have brilliant ideas, but my poor eyes will never be able to adjust to that light green/yellow color!
