Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Thursday, December 21, 2017.

In this picture set I pay a visit to the Disneyland Hotel to check out the Christmas decorations and then since it was the first day of winter thought I would share some of the Disney snow events around the park.

Let's start off at the Fantasy Tower (the main lobby) of the Disneyland Hotel. There are two Christmas trees across from the front desk.

During the holiday season, Disneyland has several "snow moments" in various areas of the park each night. The first snow opportunity of the evening is at the 6:00pm Wintertime Enchantment at Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle.

The final snow fall event of the evening is the finale to Believe in Holiday Magic. On nights like Thursday when the fireworks are cancelled due to high winds the snowfall is the main event.
