    Disneyland's Christmas Present to Guests on Christmas Eve

    As Disneyland closed at 9 on Christmas Eve last night, we, along with all of the tired guests, were treated to a special surprise.

    About more than fifty Disney Characters were at the Main Street Train Station (facing Town Square) waving to and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

    It was reminiscent of Fantasmic's ending with the Mark Twain, minus the streamers.

    Every character imaginable was there. From the Evil Queen to Jack Sparrow, Wendy to Jafar, and, even the whole gang from the Country Bear Jamboree made a special appearance from their holiday hibernation.

    After approximately twenty minutes of waving and posing, each character made their way down in a single file procession to return backstage. But what was really cool, was how the Guests gave them their space and formed a crowd on both sides. The characters walked down hugging and high five-ing Guests like a Hollywood red carpet premiere. And the Guests ate it all up, snapping pictures like paparazzi.

    We went to City Hall to pay a compliment to the Entertainment/Character Department for organizing something like this. They informed us this was a once-a-year treat and, in a small way, a Christmas Eve gift for every Guest who visited that day.

    Aaaah. How magical.


    *I might post pictures depending on how they turned out... My skills are far below many of the talented photographers on this board. It's a good day when I can even find the small quarter of an inch power button on my digital camera.



    AT LAST, THE PICTURES...

























    The Magic lives when we believe, it's in our hearts to stay...



    Thank you for visiting. I surely hope you enjoyed your stay. See you real soon.

    Oh, please do post your pictures. Even if you think the quality is not "up there" with some of the others you would be surprised. I felt the same way too but have gotten lots of compliments on my photos.

    What a wonderful, magical way to end the day. I would have loved to have seen this.

    What made the night for me was that Scrooge McDuck was part of the group. He's been extremely elusive in all of the domestic parks while being a regular over in all of Tokyo's seasonal parades. Him, Donald, and Daisy got plenty of poses together, especially him and Donald.

    Yeah, I was excited in seeing Scrooge too and I kept thinking of micechatter Disney Wrassler. Because, I kept thinking that I am sure he would be happy to see that.

    What a fun way to with everyone a Merry Christmas! We're always with family on Christmas Eve, so we'll never be able to see this.

    But please post pictures!

    I also echo the request. A special moment like that would love to be seen by so many of us who can only dream of going to Disneyland on Christmas Eve. It sounds like a magical end for a very special day of the year.

    ORWEN: Oh! What a nice thing for all my many animated friends to do! Us Cauldron girls would have been part of the mix, too, but we were banned from ever working at Disneyland or Walt Disney World many years ago. (sigh) Still, it's nice to see that they still have some smart minds in the entertainment department these days.
