I spent last Friday night with friends Alex, Lauren, and Naf at the Happiest Place on Earth. With the exception of a handful of years since I was 2 years old, I have been a Disneyland annual passholder. In fact, the current picture on my pass is almost ten years old, which means I’ll have to keep renewing it every year or subject myself to a new picture at my current age if I let it lapse and renew it later (Eek!)
One of the things I most look forward to every holiday season is Christmas at Disneyland when the Magic Kingdom becomes even more magical! I just love how the park transforms itself into a winter wonderland. From the moment you walk onto Main Street, you’ll see it all strung with lights and a 60-foot Christmas tree that is adorned with thousands of ornaments.

And at the end of Main Street is Sleeping Beauty's Castle lit up in a lilac/icicle extravaganza that is impossible to describe.

Treated like VIP’s, we zipped through Disneyland over the next couple of hours going on: 1) Star Tours, 2) Space Mountain, 3) Big Thunder 4) Haunted Mansion – which turns into the Haunted Mansion Holiday between Halloween and Christmas, and incorporates characters from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Xmas and 5) Indiana Jones.
And no visit to Disneyland is complete without seeing the fireworks show burst over Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.
