Christmas Time Before Thanksgiving Time at the Disneyland Resort

Christmas Time is well underway at the Disneyland Resort.
And as you will see, with the Parks in Holiday mode, not a whole lot to "report" on.
We'll just wander the Parks a bit

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Street U.S.A., Christmas, Christmas Time
Starting off at Disneyland today.
Have a hunch that I need to check something out in this Park before a lot of people show up in that particular area

Making my way down Main Street U.S.A.

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Tomorrowland, Space Mountain, Exit
First stop is Space Mountain
But not to ride it....

... but to check out the exit.

But why the exit?
Didn't you already cover this before?

Why yes I did.
But you will soon see some new things that have been added to the exit that weren't there before.

I wanted to check out the exit before Guests got here.
Luckily for me, Space Mountain was delayed a bit on opening, so it gave me a chance to get some shots

That's there to protect the wall from getting damaged with holes from wheelchairs and electric convenience vehicle

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty Castle, Christmas, Christmas Time, Garland
Sleeping Beauty Castle

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty Castle, Christmas, Christmas Time, Garland
You would think Disney would be a pro when it comes to force prospective

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty Castle, Christmas, Christmas Time, Garland
So I never understand why this garland that's on this spire is the same size as the rest of the Castle's garland.
I would imagine that as it goes up the spire, the garland would get smaller

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, New Orleans Square, Royal Courtyard, Refurbishment, Refurb, Refurbish
Over in New Orleans Square, as work continues on the Royal Courtyard, they have covered up the entire entry way.
Previously, only the gate portion was covered.
Now it from the top of the arch, to the bottom

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, New Orleans Square, Haunted Mansion, Holiday, FastPass
To get a Fast Pass for Haunted Mansion Holiday, you must...
1) Board the Disneyland Railroad
2) Get off on the 4th stop.
3) Exit the station and it will be on your left side

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Fantasyland, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Check In
For Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, they had this check in counter outside near the back side Sleeping Beauty Castle.
I didn't step inside the store to see if something was going on inside

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Street U.S.A., Christmas, Christmas Time
I see Carthay!

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Street U.S.A., Christmas, Christmas Time
It appears as though this horse is getting into the "Frozen" mania with the braided blond hair

Disneyland Resort, Disneyland, Main Street U.S.A., Christmas, Christmas Time, Jungle Cruise, Attraction, Poster
With the Jingle Cruise this Holiday season, the tunnels still show the Jungle Cruise attraction poster

You know what though...

I wonder if the Haunted Mansion poster is being displayed while Haunted Mansion Holiday is taking place.

Disneyland Resort, Disney California Adventure, Cars Land, Hubcap, Christmas, Tree, Courthouse
Last Sunday, gusts of wind came through the Disneyland Resort.
And a strong enough gust came right through Radiator Springs and knocked the top half off the hubcap Christmas Tree that used to stand on the left side of the Courthouse

Disneyland Resort, Disney California Adventure, Green, Army, Christmas
I am not a fan of Operation Playtime featuring the Green Army Men
But because the car has a Christmas tag, *snap*, got a picture

Since I am in the area, I am going to hang out for a bit and watch one of my favorite Holiday offerings at Disney California Adventure

Viva Navidad
