Disneyland Christmas 2011 Trip Report


For the first time ever in 2011, we visited Disneyland at Christmas-time. Join us on our incredible Christmas Expedition, as we dine at Club 33, photograph Disney time-lapse videos, eat our way through Disneyland’s holiday snacks, experience Haunted Mansion Holiday and “it’s a small world” holiday for the first times(!), rain blows upon other Guests as we try to get the last dolls for our sons in the Emporium, and engage in many other dangerous adventures (minus on the danger) at Disneyland during the Christmas and Festivus seasons!

We hope you join us on this terrific* trip report! There will be plenty of laughs (at my expense), tears (you’ll certainly mourn the loss of the time you lose by reading this), and joy (once you quit reading!) along the way. Bookmark this page as it will be where we organize the updates in one convenient location. Links will become active as the Parts are posted.

Part I – A Silent First-Night…A Haunted (Mansion Holiday) First Morning
Part II – “it’s a small trip report installment” holiday
Part III – Believe… In Holiday Magic (But Don’t Believe In Your Ability To Crash A Private Party!)
Part IV – A Dreary Morning of “Ultimate” Touring
Part V – Shooting up Disneyland with the DLP Mafia
Part VI – In Da Club (33)
Part VII – The SUITED UP Bros Life Disneyland Resort Bar Crawl
Part VIII – And it rained…and it rained…and it rained…
Part IX – The Wonderful World of Color (Coloooooor)
Part X – See Ya Real Soon!

*Okay, maybe we’re playing fast and loose with the term “terrific.” Worth noting is that this report will ultimately span many, many pages of text. Ever read Bleak House? Expect something similarly bleak (much like Dickens, I’m paid by the word, so there’s a lot of filler!)

Your Thoughts…

What do you think of Disneyland at Christmas? Would you like to visit during the holidays sometime? Hearing from you is half the fun, so please share your thoughts in the comments!

    I’ve noticed Sarah’s Tigers hat in other pictures. Does she just like the Tigers or was one of you originally from Michigan or the Detroit area?

      I am originally from Michigan. I’m a huge Lions, Tigers, and Red Wings fan.

        Thats awesome. I love seeing the Tigers represented. My family is from the Detroit area and whenever we travel one of us has our Tigers hat in a picture or two.
