Guy here with another Observations post, and jeez do I have a lot to show you. This update includes almost 40 pictures! Why? Because Christmas has been unleashed upon Disneyland, and there are a ton of decorations to go over. Here you can see Sleeping Beauty Castle with its Christmas gear. The only things that haven’t been added yet are the icicles. The icicles look good at night all lit up, but during the day they kind of look like plastic wrap.
Many more pictures after the jump:
The Dapper Dans were out on their 4-person-bicycle. I love this thing!
Not only is the Omnibus decorated, but so are the other Main Street Vehicles!
The recently opened Market House celebrates its first Christmas with a couple of trees. Here is the one near the front door. This tree features a bunch of ornaments that look like oranges, which I guess is supposed to be a tribute to Orange County. I really have no idea.
The Golden Horseshoe got some nice garland for the holidays. I’m super bummed because my picture of the trees inside turned out all blurry. The trees are decorated with horseshoes! It’s fabulous! I’ll show you next week.
I’ve always enjoyed the decorations at the Splash Mountain entrance. I’m not sure why a tree is being hung sideways, but I like it.
While I was in Critter Country I stopped by Hungry Bear Restaurant for lunch. The holiday beverage cups are now being used. I believe this is the first year for this design.
What did I eat today? Today I ate the delicious Fried Green Tomato Sandwich from Hungry Bear. I’ve done a video review about this already (which you can see here), and I think it’s one of the best quick service dining entrees in the entire resort.
Fans were pleasantly surprised last week when the Frozen meet and greet opened in Fantasyland. Near the top of the doorway Disney added a nice Olaf animatronic. He says different phrases and makes comments about the people waiting in line. It’s a nice touch! I posted video of the Olaf animatronic here.
“it’s a small world” has reopened with its holiday overlay. There’s not much to say about it that many others haven’t already said. It’s really just a spectacular attraction during the holidays that must be seen.
The facade comes alive at night when thousands of Christmas lights are lit on the attraction’s facade. I’ll be adding video of that to our YouTube channel later this week. If you can’t make it out to Disneyland to see IASW Holiday, I posted a full ride through video on our channel.
Finally, the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree area has been transformed in to Jingle Jangle Jamboree. In it you’ll find live performances by Billy Hill and the Hillbillies, games, crafts, and…
