Every first weekend of December Disneyland hosts a Candlelight Procession Event on Main Street. Think of it as a candlelight parade followed by a musical Christmas show. It only happens for two days out of the year (Dec 3rd and 4th this year) so you can expect huge crowds on these days plus a bit of congestion on Main Street.

The vehicles for the new Luigi's Tires attraction at California Adventure are now in the testing phase. I just hope the tires can move a bit faster than they are shown here.

Universal Studios Hollywood will have to wait to open their Transformers Ride until next summer, but Universal Studios Singapore is set to open theirs in December.
Most do not know what to expect, but due to the magic of YouTube you can now see what it is all about.
WARNING these videos can be SPOILER HEAVY so watch them at your own risk.

For the Matterhorn's 50th anniversary the OC Register published an article with an artist's rendering of the interior of the mountain. Disneyland's PR team generally does not allow backstage photos so this detailed graphic gives us a rare glimpse of the upper 1/3 of the Matterhorn Mountain. You may notice that there's a basketball court in there - surprised? There's an official video that will let you take a peak inside. You can watch it below or HERE
Not exactly - When exiting the tram from the parking structure and heading towards the main Disneyland entrance, the majority of guests will clump together at the first couple of gates. While a Fastpass doesn't actually exist for the main gate there is a way to get into the park a lot quicker - don't follow the sheep! The gates on the far right of the Disneyland entrance will typically have much shorter lines because people inevitably don't walk that far across. What's even better is that the gate on the farthest right will open in the evening to accommodate the flurry of guests leaving California Adventure to head over to Disneyland. Less time in line at the Disneyland gate means you'll be enjoying that Dole Whip that much sooner.
Blue Section = good all day
Hot Pink Section = additional gate opens at night
So the video game Disneyland Adventures for the Xbox 360 Kinect has been released. I have yet to buy it since my birthday is coming up... hint hint :)
However, I found this Quick Look video from the guys at the Giant Bomb video game website. Enjoy...

On November 18th, 1928 Mickey Mouse was shown to the world. Mouse Expedition wishes him a Happy Birthday because we all know that "it all started with a Mouse."

Immense progress has been happening at Cars Land. The rock work is almost done, car vehicles have been seen late at night whizzing around the track, the final theme elements are being added to the buildings of Radiator Springs, and now they are starting to test the lighting on the mountain range.

Walt Disney Imagineering gave James Cameron (Avatar) the VIP treatment when he visited the Disneyland Resort last week.
With his Avatar attraction coming to the Animal Kingdom, Imagineering thought it would be a good idea to show him what they are capable of delivering and give him some ideas on what is possible when working with the Imagineering team.
Read more about it HERE.
