Have you been to Medieval Times? That’s always a one time “gotta do it” experience.  Of course, in Disneyland, make reservations at the Pirate’s restaurant (I’m drawing a blank on what it’s called). Have a FANTASTIC time! I’m totally jealous!

Make sure you get to Disneyland EARLY! I went last year on December 28th and got there at 11 am. They said we couldn’t go into Disneyland until 4 pm and had to go to California Adventure until then! By the time we got into Disneyland, all the fastpasses were gone, so we had to wait in extremely long lines (over 2 hours for most rides). The employees basically had to yell at everyone to direct traffic, and it just felt like a herd of cattle and didn’t turn out to be a very fun experience. I’m sorry to be a “wet blanket”, I just want to warn you to expect huge crowds.

I would suggest going to Naples near Long Beach. The people who live along the canals have beautiful homes and they go all out with decorations for Christmas. It’s romantic to walk along the canals with a loved one πŸ™‚ Bonus: it’s free!

I’m all for the Christmas tree idea. Are you staying in the same hotel the whole time? Even better.

I’m also going to Disneyland after I get married. Not really as a honeymoon because I’m going with my sister’s family & her adorable daughter but I’m totally excited. I bet Disney at Christmastime is just the most fun.

@whiskeyandrhinestones:  Not so much related to Disney/Christmas, but if you’re interested in seeing things in the area, I highly recommend going to La Jolla! You can go right to the coast and see seals on the rocks. That was one of the coolest things my Fiance and I did when we were in the San Diego area last May.

I will just say… be prepared to wait in LONG lines ALL day long πŸ™ Sadly, holidays at Disneyland are usually the absolute worst time to go, and can be worse than a Saturday during summer πŸ™

I know it’s a little far for driving – but what about Sea World? That place is so much fun πŸ™‚ And yes!! Medieval Times is a BLAST. I love it! If you’re thinking more of theme parks, take a look into going to Knotts πŸ™‚ That place is not quite as busy as Disney and has more “grown up” rides if you like those πŸ™‚

We were premium annual passholders when we lived in LA and as I remember Christmas Day was not terrible. Reason being that all other passholders are blocked out, so unless you have the premium or buy a ticket that day, you are not getting in to Disneyland. That said, it could totally be crowded this year.

Are you staying at one of the hotels on the grounds? You can always laeve the park and go back, if it gets overwhelming. Sometimes FH and I would go rest in the car and then go back later. Or we’d just hang out in the Grand Californian hotel for a bit…

If you can swing it… Dinner at Napa Rose πŸ™‚

I vote for driving out to the Balboa Peninsula, it’s so beautiful and the homes are gorgeous.
