End of the Holidays and a New Tropical Hideaway

Hello Disney Fam!

It’s been a long time since my last post; it’s been a busy (but productive) year since then. But before I get into all that, here’s a quick update on the latest at Disney. Starting at California Adventure I ran into this little beauty! As always, please feel free to click on the smaller photos for full resolution.

From the moment you enter, things are different.  The tram loading up top is different from the usual loading area.

The old loading area to the left is now closed due to construction that will be starting soon on a new parking structure next to Mickey and Friends. The tram will be rerouted to accommodate the new structure coming soon.

Disneyland Candlelight Procession 2017

Welcome Everyone!

I finally got a chance to get my pictures together from this years’ Candlelight Procession at Disneyland.

For the uninitiated, the Candlelight Procession is an annual musical retelling of the story of “The First Christmas”, which features a massive choir and a special guest narrator. The music is provided by The Disneyland Symphony Orchestra complete with fanfare trumpeters and is held at the Main Street USA Train Station in Disneyland. The event itself is about 45 minutes long and is only reserved for special VIP guests who are seated in the main square of main street; but the general public is allowed to crowd around the perimeter to also watch the show.

Now when I say it’s a massive choir….I mean about 550 people massive.  I have to say, they sound utterly amazing.  Here is a quick 2 minute video of the choir traveling down Main Street to the Train Station. Sorry about the shakiness and quality of the videos; nighttime video and wall to wall people does not make for the best video conditions. 🙂
