December 25, 2011 - Special Christmas Edition
by Matt Myers

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas! I am back once again and this time I'd like to talk about Disneyland and Walt Disney World at Christmas time! I want to begin in Walt Disney World since most people go there more.

I suggest going to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. It costs extra money, but it's a lot of fun! The Osbourne Lights are over at Disney's Hollywood Studios and I really wish they would bring them to Disney California Adventure after the Carsland Expansion is done since it seems so cool!

Disneyland Christmas time is the most magical time. It's very pretty around the holidays. Lets have our journey begin on Main Street, USA where you can find a 100 foot tree and garland greeting us all the way down the street. The garland and tree give a more magical feel and it's so cool walking down and seeing Sleeping Beauty Castle when it looks like a snow storm just hit it! I love how Disney can make a snow storm happen in a sunny place!

Let's go over to Fantasyland where the it's a small world holiday overlay is. This is something that is really worth going on. It's very magical seeing Christmas being celebrated all around the world. You can even hear famous songs sung in different languages and in addition to that it's great spotting some famous characters like Peter Pan and Alice!

Let's take a trip to Santa's reindeer over in Frontierland! Here you can find Santa's reindeer relaxing before their annual trip around the world!

New Orleans Square is home to the Haunted Mansion but when it becomes Halloween and Christmas time, the Haunted Mansion turns into the Nightmare Before Christmas overlay as Jack Skellington moves in starting in October until January giving a new experience to the famous attraction!

Also while in the park, make sure you check out the Christmas parade which is something I always try to watch!

In Disney's California Adventure a Christmas addition occurs during World of Color where a portion of the show focuses on Prep and Landing. Hopefully next year the whole show will be Christmas filled!
