Today at Disneyland: It's Christmas!

Christmastime has come to Disneyland...although I'm still waiting for the word "Christmas" to return to the park after many years of disuse...

Christmas is the most beautiful season of the year at's hard to blame them for starting this early, it's a massive decorating job and the extended season allows more visitors the opportunity to experience a bit of Disney Christmas magic.

Town Hall is decked out for the season:

This year "Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle" has a new snowy rooftop and lighting for the Christmas season:

There's a very special new event held three different times each evening, in which the castle is lit up while snow falls on Main Street. We happened on this by chance, and it was a beautiful moment, with many happy faces "oohing" and "aahing" as the snow fell and the castle took on a dazzling nighttime look.

The castle photo below is blurry due to the limitations of my digital camera, but the specks in the photo are "snow." If you click to enlarge the photo, you can make out the lighted "icicle" effect a bit better.

If you love Disneyland and Christmas, don't miss the castle lighting, it's really special. Kudos to Disneyland's Imagineers for another wonderful bit of "Disney magic."
