Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Saturday, December 7, 2013.

Arrived at the Disneyland Resort before park opening this morning. Across from La Brea Bakery/World of Disney a new kiosk is being built.

No signs of what it will be.

There were guests already waiting on the benches (which were first come first serve).

The tiger has returned to the ruins.

Found this interesting.. because of the wet pavement it appeared.

The Racers were down.

Seems this was the car that caused the issue.

Today was a candy cane day at DCA. Here they are packaging a batch

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 12/07/13

Disneyland and DCA each make fresh candy canes on select days throughout the season. They are $12.99 each and no discounts apply. You need to get a wristband at park opening and it will tell you which batch and when to come back to pick it up.

The weather was finally clearing and looking promising now. Just cold.

I was not in a good spot for this.. a pole in the distance in my way. Here is a video clip from last year of this segment of the ceremony.


Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 12/07/13


This year the ceremony seemed shorter to me. It clocked in around an hour which is normal according to those that record the entire event. They cut the solitary life section, here is a clip of that from last year.
