Myrna Litt’s 11/17/09 Photo Report

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Our own Myrna Litt broke a personal record yesterday by taking well over a hundred amazing photos of the latest happenings at the Disneyland Resort. Let’s take a look at her spectacular photos:

The holidays are in full swing as soon as you get inside Disneyland Park

The balloons are made up of poinsettias

Pinocchio is a relatively rare character to see out doing meet ‘n greets now-a-days

The beautiful Main Street Christmas tree

Garland all up and down Main Street

Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle

Now for some pictures of Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee

“Going down the bayou…”

After circling around the Rivers of America, the performers exit the Mark Twain and proceed back through New Orleans Square

Louis and Dr. Facilier don’t follow the rest of the procession. They exit out of the park by the River Belle Terrace

Despite rumors that Iridessa would be leaving Pixie Hollow, she’s still there (rotating with the other Fairies of course)

What a Tink pose!

Various props inspired by “Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure”

The holiday wreaths at Small World Mall are really cool

Just look at those details!

Holiday decorations on the It’s a Small World facade

Even the control booths get decked out

Now for a look at It’s a Small World Holiday itself

This year is the first time It’s a Small World Holiday features the Disney characters

I was extremely saddened to see that (what I think was the most impressive decoration in the whole ride) got minimized from what it used to be. Click HERE to see what this looked like in years past

Santa seen flying over the Hollywood Bowl in the America room

Dreamcatchers dangle over the wild west part of the room

The finale room is beautiful during the holiday overlay

A cool little detail

Donald Duck in his Christmas attire

Now over to Disney’s California Adventure for a look at World of Color construction

There were scuba divers working in the lagoon

These dome structures were raised

New palm trees have been installed in Paradise Park

Santa Clause is now doing meet ‘n greets in Paradise Pier next to the Christmas tree

Myrna said he was a lot of fun to meet

Plants surrounding Santa’s Seaside Pavilion

The Hollywood Pictures Backlot elephants “hold up” Christmas wreaths

Goofy in his DCA Christmas outfit

Christmas lights on the Golden Gate Bridge

Now moving back over to Disneyland

Here are some shots of Disneyland’s amazing parade for the holiday season, A Christmas Fantasy

The Toy Soldiers are a nearly 50 year tradition in Disneyland’s Christmas parades

Here comes Mrs. Clause’s Mailroom

New this year are sleds carrying Winnie the Pooh, Tiger, and Eeyore (who is at the back of the Winter Wonderland section pulling along his broken sled)

The first of two rolling Christmas trees in the parade

I like the snowman with the Disney D on his hat

Clarabelle Cow and the ginger-bread men lead off the Candy Shop section


Surprisingly, after all these years, Max is still in the parade

The Candlelight Christmas Ball section is up next, kicked off by the hilarious Ugly Stepsisters

It’s nice to have the Princesses back in a Disneyland parade

Next up is Santa’s Toyland

The Seven Dwarfs kick off Santa’s big finale

The second rolling Christmas tree

Welcome to the North Pole!

The beautiful spectacle that is Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle

And we’ll end this photo report with some pictures of the Believe in Holiday Magic fireworks spectacular

Thanks for the awesome photo report Myrna!
