In as many times as I’ve been to Disneyland, I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen them light the Christmas tree that stands in the middle of town square on Main Street.
This year, while waiting for the “Christmas Fantasy Parade” to start, I managed to secure a spot on the platform of the train station and got to witness the tree lighting first hand. It’s only a momentary thing…less than 30 seconds in fact…but standing there in the chill December air as twilight approaches, it sure does fill your heart with the Christmas spirit and the Disney magic in those few seconds.
Cool, huh? Now add in a cup of Disney’s awesome hot chocolate and a churro, wait another 30 minutes for the parade to start and you’ve got the makin’s of a real holiday moment.
