We spent several hours at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure today enjoying our family's traditional Thanksgiving Eve visit to the parks.
I've been collecting the "decades" series of mugs celebrating Disneyland's Diamond Anniversary, and this holiday design is my favorite:
The latest Emporium display window has been unveiled on Main Street, featuring FROZEN (2013):
The first thing we did when we entered the park was get Fast Passes for the "Hyperspace Mountain" STAR WARS overlay at Space Mountain. This was obviously a popular idea!
The STAR WARS theme was beautifully executed, especially with the John Williams music playing as the ride begins. Thumbs up.
Time for the Jingle Cruise! This wacky holiday overlay, now in its third year, is lots of fun.
The premise of the Jingle Cruise is that a shipment of Christmas decorations and gifts goes missing and falls into the hands of the jungle animals.
One of my favorite Disney holiday events created in the last few years is the Viva Navidad! celebration at Disney California Adventure.
The fun includes a festive street parade featuring the Three Caballeros (above):
Mickey and Minnie appear at the end of the parade:
In Hollywood Land I enjoy the decorating next to the Hyperion Theater, against a backdrop inspired by Hollywood Boulevard:
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
