To be honest, I was never that good at skiing and one of the benefits of living in Florida is that no one can grab you and drag you off for a day of fun in the snow on the spur of a moment. On the other hand, if I had owned cool Pixar snowboards, jackets and snowpants like these as a kid, I might still be on the slopes.

So many, that this is a two part update.
Let’s, as they say, get on with the show:
The Haunted Mansion merchandise cart is gone and walls are up. This is likely the start of the new landscaping and path to Fantasyland that will be built as part of the new restrooms at the old Skyway location.
Over at the old Skyway location, hard to tell if more work has been done. Doesn’t look like it. But it is the last Christmas these particular decorations will be hung. I wouldn’t mind having them for my home.
The full tarp is up around Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel. Gives riders a new experience inside.
Disneyland has released details of the upcoming holiday offerings at the resort and there’s a lot that’s new. New segments include a new Holiday segment for ‘World of Color’ and an updated section of “The Magic, The Memories, and You!” Additionally, Toontown gets some updated cheer a new exhibit focused on Walt Disney’s love of trains will debut in the Disney Gallery.
