Disneyland Park Photo Report – 11/22/08

I have returned from another trip to the lovely Disneyland Resort, just going into Disneyland Park. Let’s take a look at some of the happenings going on right now around the park:

New Christmas billboards at the Mickey & Friends Tram Station.

Monorail Blue passing by the Disneyland main entrance.

The new snowflake structures atop of the Disneyland turnstiles.

The Main Street Train Station. From this view I can’t see a single Christmas decoration.

Belle & Snow White were out doing meet ‘n greets at the entrance area.

The Main Street Christmas tree.

Beautiful garland up & down Main Street.

The majestic Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle.

I managed to catch a little bit of A Christmas Fantasy.

The world famous toy soldiers.

My favorite section of the parade.

Santa’s Reindeer Round-up is now open.

Now a look at the finally re-opened It’s a Small World Holiday.

A kind of blurry look at the clock ceremony.

The line zig-zagged all the way over to this area!

I was so happy when the facade lighted up. One of the most beautiful things I have ever seen!

That’s a sea serpent in case you can’t tell.

Now a look at the ride itself.

Here they pump in the sweet smell of gingerbread.

It’s the paper mache hippo!

The South American room features this amazing set piece. One of the best parts of the holiday overlay.

The Polynesian room features the biggest visible changes, which you’ll see in a moment.

It’s kinda blurry, but you should be able to make out a Flounder stuffed animal. The only Disney character in the attraction currently.

The Rainforest scene has been moved in a shortened form to the end of the South Seas room.

The upcoming America scene is covered up for the holidays, just like the old Rainforest scene was anyway.

The amazing finale scene.

That blinding sun is another new addition.

It’s actually a re-production of a sun used just for the New York Worlds Fair version of the attraction, with a few small changes.

It was so nice to be able to ride Small World again after nearly a year of it being closed. Welcome back Small World!

A look at some of Critter Country’s Christmas decorations.

Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle as seen all the way from the queue for Haunted Mansion Holiday.

A look at It’s a Small World Holiday from the Disneyland Railroad.

The beautiful Main Street Christmas tree at night. Sadly I didn’t get to see the new LED effects properly.

Words can not describe how amazing this lighting effect is!

Last night for some reason they were just running Monorail Purple.

Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle close-up during the White Christmas finale to Believe In Holiday Magic.

The trees around the Hub have LED lights installed as well.

One last look at the Main Street Christmas tree.

The backside of the turnstile snowflake structures lit up.

My first ever trip to the Disneyland Resort where I didn’t set foot in DCA.

The Downtown Disney christmas lights.

This was the first time I had ever seen this side of the tram station open. It was quite busy.

The new holiday napkins.

Holiday coffee cup.

The great new Disneyland Park map design.

The times guide of course lists the times for A Christmas Fantasy & Believe in Holiday Magic, as well as Fantasmic which returned earlier this month.

It’s a tad blurry to see, but Pixie Hollow is also now featured on the times guide.

That’s going to wrap up this short (in comparison to some previous) photo report. As always you can stay tuned to the DLNT Image Galleries later today for bigger versions of these images, plus a few more (the size of them will only be 600 pixels, as I got the settings on my camera all messed up).
