Yesterday afternoon we made a quick visit to Disney California Adventure to enjoy the Christmas decorations, as the holiday season officially began in Anaheim last Thursday.
Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Land have become my very favorite places in the parks at Christmastime, with a fantastic retro vibe. Added to the decor is a wonderful music track which includes artists such as Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald, and it's simply perfection.

Can hardly wait to return and enjoy even more of the season in California Adventure. Meanwhile, Tuesday night we're looking forward to an after-hours holiday party for annual passholders in Disneyland!
