Welcome to Sam’s Disney Diary Episode #6 — Christmas at the Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian.
Visiting the Disneyland resort during the holiday season is purely magical. The transition at the Haunted Mansion (See Episode #3) and the overlay at It’s a Small World are obvious examples of Holiday theming. In addition, the hotels of Disneyland and Downtown Disney are great example of the “Disney” decorating detail. I had the opportunity to visit the Disneyland Hotel and Grand Californian. I visited in December 2011, not all of the Disneyland Hotel Construction was compelted, but you could hardly notice.
I did my best to capture the best of both. Including a trip to Trader Sam’s for a Red-Nosed Zebra and Mele Kaliki-Moca
I included some bonus material of the Grand Californian carolers, hope you enjoy.
