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  335.6 #626 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  335.6 #626 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  529.3 #331 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  7162.2 #5 3:21PM
Thanks everyone! I will be so sad if we don't get to go on IASM. :/ - MamalovesMinnie  13.7 #7632 3:40PM

#News- #Candlelight 2013- Disneyland Park This weekend marks the annual tradition at Disneyland Park where the resort holds its annual Candlelight Processional ceremonies.  Dating back to 1955, this annual tradition was started by Walt Disney as a thank you gift to those who had contributed to the Company in various ways. The ceremony includes a live orchestra, various choirs from   More...
Planning to go tonight for the second show. My two fave things in one place, Church & Disneyland! Hope the rain is gone by then!  - breathe_in_the_happiness  544.2 #316 8:54AM
My heart is so broken that I won't be there. After being in the cast choir for two years it's killing me that I'm missing it. I hope everyone there enjoys it! It truly is spectacular.  - lostgirl7988  692.4 #230 11:35PM
Wish you could be there Becca. Emily took your place this year, and is really enjoying being in the choir. I admire the CM's and their dedication.  It takes a lot of time, adjusting work schedules, and more to be in the choir.  Just another thing CM's do to make magic happen for their guests.  Can't wait to see it for the first time.  - snowwannab  674.2 #244 5:52AM
It was by far my favorite part of being a CM. I talked with Emily when the season started and she seemed to be enjoying it. I hope the weather holds this year.  - lostgirl7988  692.4 #230 8:57AM
This is a totally silly question, but why would Captain EO be effected? - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 2:10AM
They are using it for the choirs. - snowwannab  674.2 #244 7:45AM
Not sure. Maybe they use that venue for the choir to prepare and leave belongings?  - NoHolds  7.6 #10981 7:46AM

I was part of Candlelight last year and we had practice in there the day of the performance. (Big room with lots of seats, and a stage for the conductor.) - piratelife4me  799.8 #194 1:41PM

Hopefully we'll have great weather this year. It is best to arrive very early Saturday morning and be prepared to sit and wait for long periods of time. Sometimes they film several takes. You'll notice some of the floats are different from the regular Christmas parade at the park.A lot of Christmas decorations will already be in place on main street except the tree and the street wreaths that hang in the middle of Main Street since some of the floats have the giant balloons. - MickeyPrincess  230.8 #1463 3:49PM

Guys and Gals. For those of you who missed the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade at ABC, download the ABCPlayer app on your iOS device (I am not sure if this is available in android) and you can watch it! It will expire 4 days from now.
