The Fabulous Sounds of Christmas at Disney!

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

Every year around this time, I re-post Disneyland's Main Street, U.S.A. Christmas music loop for those who don't have it yet.

Club 33 As It Used To Be: A Photo Tour

Thursday, July 31, 2014

We've had a handful of opportunities to visit Club 33 over the years, and though I've had the best intentions of writing up a trip report each time, I've just never gotten around to it.

With the exception of the Club 33 lobby and Walt's Main ...

Disneyland’s Candlelight Processional – With Dick Van Dyke!

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

OK, you're not going to believe this, but before last Thursday, I had never seen Candlelight Processional at Disneyland, despite the fact that they've been doing it every year since 1958! Legend has it that the tradition started when Walt decided he wanted carolers on Main Street, and that eventually grew into an entire concert ...
