Celebrating Christmas at Disneyland
It's the most wonderful time of the year. Well, for most people it is. Personally, I am a huge fan of Halloween, but that has passed now, so it is time to move on. Although, I am a big believer of celebrating Christmas after Thanksgiving my only exception for celebrating it before is Disneyland. As long as Christmas is contained within the confines of the parks, then I am all for it.
Christmas at Disneyland began last Friday, November 10, and of course we had to make a trip. We woke up bright and early to get into Disneyland around opening, but were delayed by the marathon happening that morning. It took us over an hour and a half to get from the freeway to inside Disneyland. Holiday crowds are no joke at Disneyland and the last Disney marathon weekend until at least 2021 was not helping.
Once we finally arrived inside the park, we sprinted around taking pictures before the great overcast lighting left us and Eve's meetup started at noon.
The decorations inside Disneyland don't disappoint this year with the classic decorations as well as a few new touches. The one sad part this year is Disneyland will not have the Jingle Cruise. I love the silly nature of the Christmas version with its fruit cake jokes and decorations that are literally just thrown everywhere and anywhere. Fingers crossed they bring it back next year!
We ended the day watching the Christmas Fantasy Parade. I think the best part of this parade is the cheesy and outdated floats. It's a little piece of my childhood that has remained throughout the years.
