Here in Southern California, the Disneyland Resort is our mecca for all things Christmas. We don't have a Rockefeller Square or any other wintery wonderland to call our own unless we venture up to the local mountains deep into December and maybe after the new year, if we are lucky. So many of us turn to the most magical place we know to get us in the spirit starting in early November. Here are my top reasons for enjoying, specifically, Disneyland  although Downtown Disney, the hotels, and California Adventure go all out as well with special events and activities. Read more about those on the Disney Parks Blog. These are things you can enjoy on any given day during the holidays without getting there first thing and staying until dark.
