Disneyland Christmas & small world holiday Exposé

Alexander: Ho Ho Ho!!!

It’s time for a holiday-tastic visit to Disneyland Resort!

Disneyland Resort Update – February 15th 2017

On a lazy weekday in February, we ventured back out to the Disneyland Resort just a few days after the fire scare in the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure.

Plainly visible, however, was the amount of construction going on around the park and the amount of marketing for AP Days and the return of Main Street Electrical Parade (for a limited time).
