Disneyland - Christmas Parade, Fireworks, Snow

Friday and Saturday saw the return of Disneyland's "A Christmas Fantasy" Parade (daily 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.), fireworks (daily at 9:25 p.m.) and snow. The crowd was not too bad Friday, grew quite bigger on Saturday, and will simply increase as we plow forward into the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Snow lovers: stick between the buildings on Main Street for your best viewing and participation. The snow drops daily at 7:30 p.m. and once again after the fireworks show.

Pedestrian traffic alert: the Hub.

With Fantasmic erupting nightly at 9:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., a 6:30 p.m. Christmas parade, 7:30 p.m. "snow" and 9:25 p.m. fireworks show ("Believe in Holiday Magic"), the Hub area in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle becomes...

...shall we say...

...busy. Guests are directed through a one-way traffic flow system that goes counterclockwise around the outside of the Hub (the brick walkways). Fireworks viewing is in the middle of the street, in front of the castle and down Main Street. Arrive early for a spot or enjoy marching around the Hub with 15,000 of your closest and dearest new friends.


Small World's open, too. It is decked out for the holidays and has new boats. Most of it has remained true to its original self---at least what we can see so far. Enjoy!

There's more to follow on the whole me skippering a Jungle boat thing.

Heck, I may take one of them out for a spin tonight!

Love and joy come to you!

And don't forget the wassail. Make mine a double.
