Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Wednesday, November 27, 2013.
First stop today, Disney California Adventure. I walked down Buena Vista Street.
In Paradise Gardens as part of Viva Navidad! Mariachi Espectacular performing at the Bandstand.
The arts and crafts area was not busy this afternoon.
Goofy was at the meet and greet location.
Time for the Viva Navidad! Street Party
The Red Car News Boys have added a couple Christmas songs to their show. Here is a video of the finale and then the News Boys driving down Buena Vista Street.
Next stop, Disneyland. In Town Square preparations for the Candlelight Ceremony are underway. This year the performances are December 7 & 8th only.
Went for a cruise on Holiday "it's a small world".
Caught a performance of Mickey and the Magical Map. They have made some tweaks to the show. The most obvious is Stitch is now part of the Hawaiian Roller Coaster segment.
Then for the finale Mickey has a new outfit since he is no longer an apprentice.
A video clip from the finale.
Santa Mickey at the Jingle Jangle Jamboree
Minnie in a holiday dress
Enjoyed a performance of Billy Hill and the Holiday Hillbillies. Here is a video of a Hillbilly Guitar Lesson.
The Winter edition of the Buena Vista Bugle was hot off the presses Wednesday and hit news stands in the afternoon/evening.
A closer look at the paper.
Walked through Cars Land.
The Pacific Wharf Cafe has holiday treats.
And of course Turkey shaped sourdough bread
Spotted a light up Olaf on the way to Disneyland. ($15)
XBoxOne has taken over Disney Infinity in Innoventions, there were a handful of XBox 360s in the corner with Disney Infinity still.
Elvis, Scot Bruce, was at the Tomorrowland Terrace and had a packed dance floor.
Caught a Wintertime Enchantment Holiday Lighting moment on Main Street on my way to DCA.
Arrived a few minutes before Winter Dreams started and found a spot in the stand by area. I focused on the projections on Screamin.
Then I went and got in line to use my Fastpass for the second showing. The view this time was a little better.. this is from the Blue section.
Wish they had a rule you were not allowed to hold anything above your head... kids, iPads, cameras...
What are the odds.. a kid up on shoulders right in the center of my picture.
The wind was blowing a great direction and the snow flakes were floating over the show.
A couple were blown up by the water which was fun to see to (I did not get a good picture of that though).
A snowflake lifting off. This would have been a great shot if it the snow flake would have been rotated some..
