New Orleans Square is perhaps my favorite area in Disneyland. I love the extensively detailed theming and the wandering streets and hidden corners.
New Orleans Square is especially beautiful at Christmas. Every year we take our children's photos on a staircase hidden away in a little courtyard called Court des Anges (Angels Court):
Unfortunately Disneyland management has turned this courtyard into a miniature Christmas ornament store, but you can still squeeze in and take photos on the staircase.

While we were taking our photos we helped a very nice couple take their photos as well. It turned out they were Trojan alumni whose first date had been at Disneyland, so our families had quite a bit in common!

Some of the decorations above the Blue Bayou and Club 33:

Finally, a scenic view of the Rivers of America from New Orleans Square, showing the Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes and the Mark Twain:
I'll be sharing photos of more Disneyland Christmas decorations in the near future.
