I don't need to convince anyone how amazing Disneyland Resort is during the holidays. Here's what we did on our recent trip last weekend for Family Media Day:
Jingle Jangle Jamboree is bursting with holiday spirit! This is the place to go to see plenty of Disney characters, shows, crafts, a petting zoo, plus you can meet Santa and Mrs. Claus! The decorations are top notch, as usual.
A Christmas Fantasy Parade had our kids smiling the entire time. It really is spectacular to see so many Disney characters all at once. Santa is the highlight at the end, but this was delightful from start to finish.
Certain rides take on a holiday spin, with Haunted Mansion Holiday, Jingle Cruise and It's A Small World Holiday. Try and ride Small World Holiday at night because really, is there anything more beautiful than this?
YOU MIGHT MISS (If you're not looking)
And now, here a few things you might miss if you're not looking carefully. We're always looking for new things at Disneyland, and this time we tried to look at things from a different perspective.
We've all walked by Monstro, but have you ever noticed how cool the water reflection looks?
Get a good look at who's making your popcorn...by the way, Disneyland's popcorn is the best I've ever had. No joke.
While our son was busy playing video games at Innoventions, we noticed this eloquent quote on the wall.
How's this for natural beauty? Anybody know what kind of fruit that is?
A sea of Baymax balloons - not hard to spot, but too beautiful not to share.
Who knew that the beautiful Grand Californian Hotel also had a Santa in the lobby? Pinga was overjoyed to see him.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
Special thanks to Disneyland Resort for giving us a magical day at the parks!
