Can you believe that it’s the holiday season already?! The Disney theme parks are already decked out for Christmas, and today marks the first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the first night of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights! Disneyland is also in the spirit, as the Christmas decorations have been up in Disney California Adventure for the last few days!
As evidenced by our annual Festivus office party (for those curious, last year Fred handily defeated Brian during the “Feats of Strength;” seriously, it was embarrassing), we here at TouringPlans love the holidays. Whether we’re belting out an off-key rendition of “Tracks in the Snow” from Country Bear Christmas or trying the latest tequila-based holiday concoction Len has cooked up (his peppermint-tequila pancakes are surprisingly good!), we fully embrace the spirit of the season.
It was this holiday spirit that inspired us to create two new TouringPlans.com eBooks: Disneyland: Holiday TouringPlans eGuide 2012 and Walt Disney World: Holiday Season TouringPlans eGuide 2012. We’ve been working tirelessly on these eBooks, and the end results are pretty stunning. I know I’m biased, but these are two of the most gorgeous eBooks I’ve ever seen, with tons of tips and Christmas planning information that will make these guides the perfect tool for ensuring that your Christmas visit is truly magical.
What’s great about these eBooks is that they each offer something for everyone. If you’re a first-time or infrequent visitor to Walt Disney World at Christmas, the information and planning tips will be second-to-none and it will all be presented in a very pretty package! If you’re a regular Christmas visitor, you’ll still find a lot of useful information in these guides. Sure, you may not need a detailed description of the IllumiNations Peace on Earth tag, but you may not know where to grab the absolute-best Christmas cupcake at Walt Disney World or whether the Holiday Time at Disneyland Tour is worth the money. Even if you’ve been to Walt Disney World hundreds of times for Christmas and are confident you know everything, I guarantee you haven’t seen this many gorgeous Walt Disney World Christmas photos. See? Something for everyone!
We’ve managed to cram tons of photos, information, and tips into each of these guides. Here’s what you can expect from the eBooks:
- 92 pages (Disneyland) and 111 pages (Walt Disney World)
- Information & tips for enjoying every form of holiday entertainment in the parks and resorts
- Tips to avoid the holiday crowds
- 125+ photos (Disneyland) and 150+ photos (Walt Disney World)
- Full November & December 2012 TouringPlans.com Crowd Calendars
- Holiday snack recommendations
- Historical tidbits, facts, and photos of the Disney “Ghosts of Christmas Past”
- …And much, much more!
