I'm doing fine. I was discharged 9/8, they kept me for 5 days post-op. I kinda had some side effects from Gen Anesthesia which kept my stay longer. I'm home & moving around albeit really slowly since I feel pain now & then which is normal during recovery. My surgeon said the procedure was a success & he says from what he has seen, it all "looks good." I will know for certain this Thurs during my appointment when I see my pathology report. Overall, I do feel good with every passing day & am in good spirits. Thanks so much guys for your kind words & thoughts. - HARR_E  4256.8 #29 5:28PM
Glad to hear, take care. - jacdanfan  9585.3 #3 7:01PM

#Holiday tips end of the year. As we gast approach the of the year.for those that visit the parks from about Dec 21st till Jan 5, remember to plan accordingly as these are the busiest day at the resort. The most packed days are from Christmas day till new years day. Grab fasspass early as they do run put and remember you can get a new one at 2 hrs if your pass is for later in the day past the 2 hr  More...

Well that's not completely true. I do speak a little french, but not enough to order food. - GoofyMom77  729.1 #253 8:24PM
I'm pretty sure most of the menus are available in English at disney parks, and it's pretty widely spoken in Europe.  I don't know for sure, but I imagine English fluency is something that's either required or highly recommended for CMs.  If all else fails, just order a baguette and Nutella, haha - Spoonful_O_Sugar  602.7 #322 10:17PM

Due to a change of plans, I'll be at the parks over the Nov. 8th dates. On the Disneyland website it shows that there will be a Christmas Fantasy parade and holiday fireworks, yet I thought the holiday season didn't start until Nov. 13. Is this incorrect? I would be tickled pink if I was able to view the holiday parade. Thx all!!

Not sure on the date, look under baseballmickey_CM's posts as I think he posted it. But they have already started decorating and they do film the parade early.  - secretagentangel  2422.0 #53 6:45PM
Official start date is Dec 13, but a few things will start early (the parade being one of them).  - BaseballMickey_CM  7257.2 #9 7:04PM
Thank you!! - kueenofhearts  279.3 #1015 9:08PM
That's a late start to the holiday season!  I think BBM means November 13th. In past years the parade and fireworks has kicked off on the Friday prior to the official start of holiday season.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2412.5 #55 9:52PM
Yes November 13. Thanks IDVandalSkipperCM - BaseballMickey_CM  7257.2 #9 9:59PM

So I heard the Christmas Day parade is being filmed when I'm there does this mean the park might hit capacity?

Only around main street,  it's still not the Xmas season yet and a very short break after Halloween. Most of the filming takes a few hours  - pikarich  4742.9 #24 12:47PM

I saw that Christmas time at Disneyland begins November 13th and we are planning a visit November 11th and 12th. Figures. What I am curious about is what happens on the days just before the big changeover. Are the decorations up but the Christmas parade hasn't started? Will IASM be closed until the 13th? Please help! Thanks so much!

In my experience, the fireworks were Xmas already but the parade doesn't start Until the official date. IASW has been open prior to the start date also but there may be times it isn't. I would wait to see what the calendar on Disney says for it to be official - brodysmommy  414.8 #509 3:15PM
And yes pretty much all the decorations are up since they have to do it every night. There may be new ones the night before hit for the most part they are all up. They usually tape the parade for Xmas day the weekend or 2 before so most of then need to be up for that - brodysmommy  414.8 #509 3:16PM
In not sure about IASW or the parade, but I'm pretty sure most of the decor is up a few days before (maybe just a few last minute touches missing), so you'll have the Christmassy feel.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  602.7 #322 3:18PM
The transformation for Xmas time at the. Parks begins very early. The parks start being decorated for Xmas time starting in mid October...the back portions of the parks are decorated first and make their way towards the will see snow on the castle before October is over and holiday merchandise in stores...after Halloween Time ends its a mad dash to place the final decor for the holidays in the front portions of the will see most holiday decor up before the official start of the holidays and the Xmas tree is put up too :-) IASM holiday version opens up as Xmas time in the parks officially begins :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7703.2 #7 3:21PM
Thanks everyone! I will be so sad if we don't get to go on IASM. :/ - MamalovesMinnie  20.2 #6911 3:40PM
