Disneyland Crowded this Week

Happy Holidays everyone!  I'm back in town but you won't see me at Disneyland this week.  My annual pass is blocked out for New Year's so I have to wait until next week before I can go back.  I read this article today on the holiday crowds at Disneyland.  It turns out it's not such a bad thing that I can't go to the parks right now because they are extremely crowded and was even sold out today!  If you are thinking of visiting Disneyland this week, keep in mind that the lines will be long.  It is supposed to rain tomorrow so it might be better but with all the rain we've been having here people may just go anyway.
Here's the article I read in the OC Register on the crowds at Disneyland this week:
Disney Parks Reach Capacity with Holiday Crowds

Disneyland/DCA Christmas Update!

Hello everyone, with Christmas right around the corner now is a good time to catch everyone up on what's new and happening at the parks!

Rides Re-opened
Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin and Astro Orbitor in Disneyland have both reopened after being closed for a while.  Car Toon Spin had a 40 minute line and appeared to be rather busy but Astro Orbitor wasn't very crowded at all in the rain.
Rain kept the crowds down at the re-opened Astro Orbitor.

Christmas Time Food Deals
If you are heading to the parks from now til New Year's Day make sure you grab a Time Listing Guide to find a coupon for off-peak hours dining at the parks.
Dining Discount good for 30% off food before noon or from 3pm to 4:30pm
The discount is good during "off-peak" dining times before noon and from 3:00pm to 4:30pm.  The discount is for 30% off any food purchases at French Market, Hungry Bear, Rancho del Zocalo, Redd Rockett's and Tomorrowland Terrace at Disneyland Park and also Cocina Cucamonga, Lucky Fortune Cookery, Pacific Wharf, Taste Pilots', and Award Wieners in Disney California Adventure Park.  If you want to make sure you have a coupon before you head to the park you can print it out on the official Disney Parks Blog here: Disney Parks Blog Food Coupon.  (The voucher is also good at Walt Disney World at select locations in all four of the Florida parks).

New Toys!
The Disney Parks have some new plush merchandise out as well as some discounts.  Right now Pook-A-Looz are 25% off at certain Disney Park stores just look for the small sign by the stuffed animals at various stores throughout Disneyland and DCA.

Duffy is all ready for winter decked out in his Canadian outfit at California Adventure park.
Brrr!  Duffy is cold!
Duffy is also looking ahead and is ready for Valentine's Day!  Almost a full two months early this Duffy makes the perfect Valentine's Day gift.
Duffy has a Valentine's sash!

Duffy comes with several arrows and cupid wings!

This Duffy is smaller than the standard size Duffy plush that fits the various outfits for sale (such as the Canadian outfit picture above).  Duffy retails for $25 and is available at Disney California Adventure Park (and Epcot Center at Disney World) only.

New Captain E.O. toys Hooter and Fuzzball!  If you've seen Captain E.O. Tribute then you know Michael Jackson's side kicks Hooter and Fuzzball.  Once you've seen the movie you can exit into Star Trader's and pick up a couple new friends from the movie!
Fuzzball from Captain E.O. retails at $16

Hooter retails at about $25

Have a great Holiday and make sure to check out these re-opened rides, new items, and food deals for your Holiday Disneyland visit!

Mark your calendar!  The next Annual Passholder World of Disney sale is this Saturday, Dec. 4th!
This is the perfect opportunity to get a lot of that Christmas shopping done while saving a lot of money!  I went to the last Annual Passholder sale during the summer and left with a garbage bag full of great items.

They upcoming sale will have items that are up to 75% off and excellent doorbuster deals!  There is even a complimentary gift to the first 1,000 shoppers (Last time the free gift was Mickey ears that say "The Big Cheese").
This Saturday's sale is from 6:30am to 9:00am which is very early for one to get up on a Saturday but it is totally worth it!  So make sure not to miss this Saturday's sale if you are an Annual Passholder!
