Christmas Slowly Seeping In Before Halloween Is Over At The Disneyland Resort

It's always good to visit the Disneyland Resort

As I walked to the Disneyland Resort, I walked behind the ESPN Zone and through Downtown Disney

As I walked by the Downtown Disney Monorail station, I saw some Fall (??) decor

This reminds me of two things...
1 - Pocahontas
and
2 - The Year of a Million Dreams promotion between 2006-2008

The announcer before the show mentions that we will be visiting a land of magic and mystery. A land of no video lighting, flash photography, mobile phones, and other handheld devices (meaning iPads and Tablets).
So don't interrupt the journey with such distractions
