any updates on this? we went to DL and CAP this year from November 16-20 then 26-Dec 1. 11 days was awesome. Would hate to see all of the holiday traditions get taken away and a fee put to experience the fireworks and parade. It's become a yearly tradition for our Hawaii based family. We even bought annual passes this year to experience it for a longer time.
Next year we will go during Halloween to experience something different. I'm not totally stoked about it as it probably means we will not be there for the holidays.
