The Disneyland Resort Prepping for Christmas Time 2013

So I found out that I wouldn't be able to visit the Disneyland Resort on my normal Fridays.  So I had to go Thursday morning.  The one thing I didn't like about it is that the Resort was opening at 10 a.m.  By opening later, I only had a short window time to get all the pictures I could get this week.

Walking through Downtown Disney...

Disneyland Resort, Disney California Adventure, Entrance, Buena Vista Street
Visiting Disney California Adventure first...

Buena Vista Street is getting all decked out for Christmas Time

From November 4 - 8 2013, Radiator Springs Racers was closed for refurbishment. This is one of several signs placed throughout Disney California Adventure indicating its closure

Cars Land doesn't look that busy

Toy Story Midway Mania should be themed to Toy Story Merry Mania for Christmas Time

Lights have been placed around the loop of California Screamin' which could be used for World of Color Winter Dreams

Globes placed behind each burst from the star burst on Mickey's Fun Wheel

Presents adorn the World of Color viewing area for World of Color Winter Dreams

These wrapping paper reminds me of something one would find at Target

Cars Land with its Christmas decorations

All is quite in Ornament Valley

The queue line for Cars Land's Season Speedings sign and snow car is in front instead of last year when it went down Route 66

Candy Cane and Santa pencil topper have been placed

There was literally no line for Luigi's Flying Tires
What you see at the gates are the only Guests in "line"

Oops! Someone forgot to turn off the marque sign on the Fast Pass for Radiator Springs Racers

The popcorn cart has been moved at an angle now.  Before it was parallel with the street

Even though Disney California Adventure is getting ready for Christmas, one can still get the ghost popcorn bucket. ha ha

In case you wanted to know who MintCrocodile is, here I am looking at one of the ornaments of Buena Vista Street's Christmas Tree

The jewelry store portion of Elias and Company has been transformed into the Christmas store.
Soon Santa Clause will be here meeting Guets

This reminds me of Paddington Bear, although the Santa suit is for Duffy

Dress Duffy in an elf outfit with his very own Mickey Mouse plush

"But Mom, I don't want to wear this red dress. I'm not 7 anymore.  I am almost 10"
"God! I need a vacation"

Dad, why does Mom and Sis get Christmas outfits and I just get this green shirt?

I hate my life

Disneyland time...

Earlier this week, the Disneyland Resort redid its Rider Switch policy.  Now Guests who do the rider switch will eventually be given a readmission pass that allows for 3 Guests to return instead of 2.
When it comes to the Rider Switch, each attraction does it differently, so ask the Cast Member at the entrance and they will give you instructions on how to do the Rider Switch.

Sorry for the blur picture.  I didn't think it would turn out this way.
I just kept it for now to show where this Christmas Tree is located in the Market House

Another Christmas Tree in the other corner

Mansion was closed for a bit

But soon reopened for Guests

If Mr. Potato Head can remove his ear at Toy Story Midway Mania, then Olaf from the Frozen Meet and Greet should be able to remove his head

Even though these rose decorations on the Castle are for the Christmas Parade filming, I find them pretty tacky

Who is he waiting for?

That will conclude today's pictorial
