Christmas at Disneyland!


...And you're surfing the internet.

For the final post of the 25 days of Christmas I am taking you on a tour of Christmas at Disneyland!

Many people celebrate Christmas Day at Disneyland.  Now you can enjoy some of the decorations from the comfort of your own home.

Christmas at Disneyland...

Front entrance all decked out...

The Christmas tree inside the park.  Did you know that the ornaments on the bottom are actually much larger than the ornaments at the top.  This trick makes the tree appear taller than it really is!


I always enjoy the florals here... always festive.

Each shop on Main Street, USA had its own special themed garland.



Also, almost every land had its own special land specific Christmas decorations.  This is in New Orleans Square.




From Halloween to Christmas the Haunted Mansion has a special "Nightmare before Christmas" theme!

In Critter Country, the wreaths had bee hives and ornaments that were made to appear as if they were dipped in honey. After all, Winnie the Pooh put these up!

Brer Rabbits tree is falling out of the building

In the back area of the park they have a whole Christmas themed area that is not only quiet, but pretty too.

They have a cabin decorated inside and out.

They also have a petting zoo with goats (on the other side).  I was surprised to see the baby cow again!  She has grown a lot.

Here is the baby cow from last year... she has grown!  Last year she just sat like this, but this year she kept her butt to us and mooed the whole time. Very cute!
 

Frontierland...

Over by "It's a Small World", every light pole had a country themed wreath.

In Toon Town, the Christmas tree and decorations appear... well, cartoonish.

Now off to California Adventure park!

The trolley had garland on it.

The big tree in California Adventure
I like this tree better
In Hollywoodland, the decorations are 1930s/1940s inspired


In Carsland, the decorations are cars-inspired.

This one is inspired by the hippy VW van...
peace
 Tires and filters make up the garland

Mater's tree...


 the GI Joe tree, red, white and blue....

 If you look closely at the "snowflakes" above... they are actually made from wrenches!

A construction cone tree...

 Get your kicks...
on Route 66
 This is the car's body shop decorations...

Hubcap tree

Okay... off to A Bug's Land.  The lights, candy cane, and Santa pencil are really BIG because when you enter a Bug's Land you become the size of an ant.
 

Paradise Pier has a Latin Christmas themed area...

Paradise Pier's tree. Can you spot the hidden Mickeys?

And then giant presents were scattered along the walkway. I think they are used for the nighttime show.

I would also like to point out the beautiful pink roses that are STILL BLOOMING in Winter! Ahhh yes, the beauty of Southern California.

This cracked me up. These ducks were just sitting there on the concrete.  As if that is the most comfortable place to sit! ha!

Ok, run back to the other park!

You have to watch the Christmas parade.

 One of the many floats...

If you missed the parade, it airs on Christmas Day on national tv.  Did you know that they actually film that parade in mid-November.  

It cracks me up... the day they filmed it this year it was almost 90 degrees!  If you watch the parade like I did last year... people were wearing scarves.  I am pretty sure those were handed out as props and that people were probably sweating since it's usually warm mid-November.  I guess we will see!

I hope you enjoyed this little trip to Disneyland.

I also hope that you have enjoyed my 25 days of Christmas.  I had a fun time blogging about Christmas.  It was a bit exhausting; having a new post every day is very time consuming.  

Merry Christmas and see you in the New Year!
