The off season has arrived at the Disneyland Resort, which means Christmas decorations are being packed away until November and renovation projects are underway around the parks. The tram stop billboards have been replaced. Buzz is now featured.

Snow remains on the castle but all the lights, garland, etc. are put away. Also note just because it is off-season does not mean the walkways are empty.

Hi,
I just watched the video of the Christmas version of It is a Small World and thank you so much. It was a delightful.

Lilu:

Wow, that's a lot of closures for the california parks. Sounds like they're trying to spiffy everything up, though. I can't imagine what's going to take 9 months on Finding Nemo (which I'm not a fan of anyway, when we went on it 6 years ago I was pretty unimpressed). That's a really long refurb for a relatively simple ride. If they don't kill it off (so many many rumors, I know plenty of people who do like it so I'd hate to see it go) maybe we'll give it another try next time we're over there.

Still, sounds like a good time to go if you're an AP holder.

Wendy:

Can't believe all the closures! I was there in September, the Cali parks are great and I'm glad everything was open (except BTMR) when we were there. But WDW will always be better.
I really liked Nemo I hope they don't get rid of it, but the line takes forever!
