So I totally thought that Disneyland and Disney California Adventure opened at 8 a.m. when in fact they opened at 9 a.m. I could have slept in an extra hour. ha ha.
Walking through Downtown Disney, I spotted one of two new themed display windows at the World of Disney store.
The yellow on the traffic light blinks really fast instead of the slow steady pace that is found in "Cars" and what's mimicked at Cars Land
Even "Glow with the Show" got a themed window. The background has Sleeping Beauty Castle to the left ("Glow in the Show" for the fireworks), Mickey's Fun Wheel in the center (for "Glow in the Show" World of Color) and Fantasmic! to the right
I will have to get a night time shot as the glare from the day reflects on the windows
First click goes to Disney California Adventure, but quickly head out so I can get over to Disneyland. And it's not because I think Disneyland is better. It's just that I need to ride Haunted Mansion Holiday before the crowds hit
I know that Disney wants to try and "hide" the Candlelight set up on the other side of the train station, but I don't know why they have Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto ice skating. Who would ice skate on top of a rooftop??
Flags are half-mast for the passing of Nelson Mandela
Set up for Candlelight which now just takes place on the first weekend of December.
I think Disneyland learned its lesson from last year when they offered Candlelight for 20 nights throughout December 2012. I know it created such a headache with the crowds, especially in the evening hours, that the pay off wasn't successful because they were trying to sell dinner packages like World of Color.

Casey Jr. and Storybook Land are closed for a small refurbishment
I was on the Mark Twain, second level. In the little area where there is a serving counter and mirrors, I was watching the reflection as we traveled around the river bend. Man, it not only got me dizzy, but also was giving me a headache.

The Jingle Cruise is very popular
The line stuck out of the boat house, and only the patio section of the top level was in use at this time
First time I have seen the Market House busy

The Little Mermaid with .... a 15 minute wait!
Viva Navidad! at Paradise Gardens
To camouflage backstage, they installed a second set of themed gates. They will close the heavier first set of doors, before taking Mater (or McQueen / DJ ) behind the second set of doors
That will conclude today's pictorial
Hope you enjoyed it
