I have reservations for this party. I've never been to DL but we are well versed in WDW. So if we can fly standby, we'll be there. If not, I'll be looking for someone who needs our reservation.

What rides should be on our list that doesn't duplicate WDW (much?)

If I were to pick and choose, my ordered list for top 5 at Disneyland Park would be:

- Indiana Jones
- Matterhorn
- Pirates of the Caribbean (substantiallly similar, but dramatically longer and better)
- Mr. Toads Wild Ride
- Finding Nemo Subs

Also, Fantasmic is awesome at Disneyland, so its worth seeing their version.

I was just checking for the Holiday Calendar Schedule on DL website.
The Santa parade ? holiday party?
Anyway yo should def see the Nightmare Before Xmas overlay on the Haunted Mansion and sometimes it is FP during the holidays so double check and the Small World is incredible for the holidays.

Ditto on the “if we can get on” part See you there I hope. Best non-rev wishes to you!
We can get in at 7, I’m hoping to ride Space Mountain and Matterhorn before the party. I think Haunted Mansion and Small World will be open for the party?

Pinocchio's Daring Journey
Storybook Land Canal Boats
Casey Junior's Circus Train
Toon Town (land itself) and Roger Rabbit's CarToon Spin
Small World (inside very similar, outside far superior, especially with the Christmas overlay)

Good luck getting stand by!

We came in on Saturday so we will be at the party. I'm scratching my head how it can take an hour to go 9 miles but that is what Waze is telling me. lol Free parking starts at 6:30.

I have two extra wristbands if anyone is interested.

It's because it was a light traffic day. Welcome to Southern California. Told my friends to be at my house by 6pm and if you're late, you get left behind.
