Disney's Winter Wonderland
I spoiled myself rotten again! Monday I finished my work early so I could spend the afternoon at Disneyland with a friend in town from Vegas. While we may have spent the entire afternoon sweating in the 90 degree Novemeber heat (not normal folks!), I was pleased with the non-existent lines. The park looked fantastic all decorated for Christmas and the holiday cheer was inescapable. Main street was lined with lights, the castle was adorned with snow, and the loud speakers were singing Christmas melodies throughout the park. Now, I'm not usually one to get all excited about Christmas before we even have a chance to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, but I just couldn't help myself. Unfortunately, I had to leave before sun-down and missed the best part of the park's holiday transformation. After the sun has set, "White Christmas" is performed, and icicles appear on the castle as snow falls on Main Street. It's like magic! I guess now I have an excuse to make another trip back soon to enjoy Disney's magical Winter Wonderland!
