PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland Resort (11/2/21): A Flood of Holiday Merchandise and Decorations

Hey there, hi there, ho there! We’re back for another beautiful day at Disneyland to walk off all the Halloween candy we just had. So join us as we leave the goblins and ghoulies of last Halloween and move headlong into Christmas all over the parks in this particularly large photo report.
