Christmas Time 2015 has officially started.
There is so much to do and see this Christmas Time
Especially with Star Wars Season Of The Force opening in three days
Today, I will start in Disneyland because I had a plan. The plan was to get to Disneyland early before the crowds hit, ride Jingle Cruise, take pictures of Tomorrowland, ride Small World Holiday, then wander a bit before booking it over to Disney California Adventure for Viva Navidad! in Paradise Pier
With it being a Marathon Weekend, and both Parks opening at 9 a.m., it was busy first thing in the morning.
Did my plan work?
Follow along to find out...
But be warned!
This pictorial is picture heavy
Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree
The flag pole is in my way-ay
The tree is decked out with traditional ornaments, as well as some to highlight blues and silvers for Disneyland's 60th anniversary
Diamond style beading is draped around the tree
The new Frozen window display at the Emporium
Elsa creates her Snow Castle, as well as Olaf
Olaf dreams of doing whatever it is that snow does in Summer
The Flower Market with a Christmas theme
Jingle Cruise was having some technical difficulties this morning.
But that's OK as it gave me a chance to get shots of the rest of the Park
Season of the Force invades Tomorrowland
The People Mover track getting some lovin' with Star Wars Season Of The Force banners hanging from it
The reds represent the villains.
Just a heads up, I am not a Star Wars geek, so I only recognize a few of the silhouettes on the banners
And ...a second Darth Vader?
The blues represent the good guys
Han Solo and Chewbacca
C3PO and R2D2
The Tomorrowland Terrace has been temporarily renamed as the Galactic Grill
Disney is going all out for the Season of the Force
Just a few pictures from Small World Holiday
Aren't there normally dancers on the bottom part?
Finally Jingle Cruise has opened
But when I got there, there was quite a hefty queue
Although the sign outside stated a 35 min wait
Whoa! Going upstairs?!
There have been probably like a few times that I have gone upstairs.
Using parts of the second story boathouse queue that I haven't used since ... probably back in 1994 when it reopened with a boathouse queue building
Marvelous engineering the way they route this upper level queue.
It really does fool people on the direction and path they are traveling
Finally on the ride
Only one African Bull Elephant is seen.
The "Mother In-Law" Elephant is MIA
Snow has fallen on the African Jungle Veldt
That was fun.
Time to make my over to Disney California Adventure
Oswald greeting a queue of Guests
Christmas comes to Grizzly Peak Airfield
Wind socks made from a Santa hat and ...leggings (??)
To see Anna and Elsa, no longer is a FastPass needed
Just queue up
Viva Navidad! time
Whew! I am worn out
And there's stuff that I had missed on this trip like Toon Town and A Christmas Fantasy Parade.
But there's always next week
So with that in mind, that will conclude today's pictorial
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out

Until Next Time...
