Christmas at Disneyland: Nighttime

During the 12 Days of Christmas I'll be sharing a series of photo posts on this year's holiday celebration at the Disneyland Resort.

First up, some nighttime shots from our visit one week before Christmas. What a beautiful evening! Above is the beautiful Mark Twain cruising the Rivers of America near New Orleans Square.

Several of the photos in this post were taken in New Orleans Square, which is one of the most beautifully decorated areas of Disneyland during the Christmas season.

Below is the entrance to Court des Anges, where we used to take family Christmas photos until it was closed to the public. It is now a lobby for Club 33; the last time I was behind that gate was on our 2016 visit to Club 33.

A peek at the decorations in Club 33 through a second-story window:

A sign near It's a Small World. The holiday version of the ride belatedly opened this month after being closed due to flood damage.

Somewhat fittingly, other Disney parks around the world sent parts to help quickly repair the ride and open it in time for most of the Christmas season. I'll share additional Small World photos in another post.

A band performing Christmas carols on the steps of the Main Street Train Station:

A couple of beautifully decorated storefronts along Main Street U.S.A.:

Given that Disneyland was closed by the state for over a year, including all of last year's Christmas season, it made me happier than ever enjoying the holiday there this year!

Still to come: Photos of Christmas at the Grand Californian Hotel and of Disneyland's Merriest Nites Christmas party.

Thanks for this post. My last time in Disneyland was December 2019; the park is particularly lovely at Christmas, and I was especially fortunate to experience the Candlelight Processional.

Speaking of Candlelight, I just found this video of a late 1980s Disney Channel program featuring Howard Keel as narrator which was very well done:
