What Is Your Favorite Disneyland Memory?

What is your favorite Disneyland memory?

My favorite Disneyland memory is from Christmas Eve 2011. First we had dinner at Club 33 and the food, holiday decorations and company was all very lovely. Then, as we were leaving the park, suddenly over fifty characters came to say "Good Night" and "Happy Holidays" to the guests as we left the park. Some characters were even already in their pajamas. They appeared to all be having fun as they danced, waved, joked around with guests and each other and generally had a good time. This was all an unexpected treat for us so it all seemed so magical.

Christmastime is my favorite time of all to visit the Disneyland Resort. From mid-November through the beginning of January, the entire Resort transforms into a wondrous winter-ish wonderland. The decorations cannot be beat and I have never seen a bigger Christmas tree than the 60ft+ tree located at Town Square at the end of Main Street U.S.A. Sleeping Beauty's Castle is decorated with snow-capped roofs, thousands of LED lights and countless icicles. The Haunted Mansion transforms into Haunted Mansion Holiday and features Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. The classic attraction it's a small world becomes it's a small world holiday and features over 300,000 dazzling light and Christmas decorations from around the globe all set to a very special Christmas medley written by the legendary Sherman Brothers. The parade offered is A Christmas Fantasy Parade and the nighttime firework entertainment presented is Believe... In Holiday Magic Fireworks Spectacular. After each firework show, snow falls from the sky in select areas, much to the delight of children and adults alike. There are many other reasons to visit during Christmastime - Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, Santa's Reindeer Roundup, the Candlelight Processional, seasonal drinks, yule logs, special holiday menus, amazing gingerbread houses, fresh candy canes and more.

If you are interested in learning more about Christmastime at the Disneyland Resort, I wholeheartedly suggest taking the Holiday Time at Disneyland tour which is offered each year. When you take the holiday tour you are each given a few seasonal treats (like hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies), a very cool tour pin, a tour ornament and you get priority seating for Haunted Mansion Holiday, it's a small world holiday and the A Christmas Fantasy Parade. I fully encourage anyone who really loves Christmas to consider visiting the Disneyland Resort during the holiday season in order to experience all these many merry pleasures.
