My sister, Patty, and I decided to go to Disneyland today so I could get my walking in and have fun at the same time.

Of course, it's all decorated for Christmas and this was our first time seeing done up in the Holiday Spirit this year.

The big tree, at the start of Main place, is where everyone stops to get their Holiday pictures taken.

There is a new show called "Tiana's Showboat Jubilee!". It takes place on the The Mark Twain boat but everyone stands along the Rivers of America to watch it.

It's a Mardi Gras Style show with Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen from Disney's newest movie "The Princess and the Frog".

Even some members of the public got to hop on the boat and preform with the cast.

It was a cute, lively and fun show. Very colorful and entertaining. It made me want to see the movie.

As we were walking we came across this sign. Who would have ever thought that Santa would be keeping his reindeer right here at Disneyland.

We had to go see them.

Why, Santa was even there. If you wanted to go visit him and tell him what you wanted for Christmas you could go inside this darling cabin and find him there waiting for you.

Then we saw it! The area where the magical reindeers were at. Look, here is even a little gift to Prancer!

There he is! He was laying down. I guess resting up for the busy day he will have in a few weeks.

All the other reindeer were there too. Most were eating.

I believe this is Mrs. Santa Claus' car. Looks like she has been out shopping.

Even Pluto came by to say hi and take photos.

This little boy was over come with joy when he saw Pluto. Even more so then when he saw Santa. He was so cute.

Of course the Castle is all decorated. I know it's even more pretty at night. I can't wait to go back to see Disneyland all lit up.

Even the old cars are decorated. How cute.

It's a Small World has been completely redone for the Holidays. Again, this place will be even more exciting at nights when all the lights come on.

The whole inside is new and it's fun to "travel" the world and see how they all celebrate the Holidays.

Photos just don't do this ride justice.

As we continued our walk, I noticed some healthy foods. Diet friendly foods.

The fruit looked so good it almost appeared to be fake. But it wasn't!

Oh PICKLES! Yum! These remind me when I was a kid. I used to love to get the big sour pickles.

I almost got one but we agreed to go eat a real lunch. I had a 1/2 of a veggie sandwich and a bowl of vegetable soup. It was good but I still want that darn pickle. I should have bought one and brought it home.

For those that didn't want healthy food, Minnie was more then happy to help you out with mixes of her yummy cupcakes, brownies and cookies.

Mickey didn't want to be out done, so he came up with his own Gingerbread cookie mix. You even get a cookie cutter in the shape of a Mickey Gingerbread man. How cute!

How about some Rice Crispy Treats?

If you just couldn't wait to go home and bake up your own treats you could always find plenty already made and waiting for you eat them.

Like these cute Mickey Cookies or the snowman cookies.

Here is a twist on the normal Candy Canes. How about a peppermint twist Mickey!

If you didn't get your fill of candy corn this Halloween, no need to fear. There is now candy corn in white, green and red for Christmas.

I just fell in love with these cute plates for when you had pizza. They came in a package of 6 and each had a different picture on them. Perfect plates for a slice of pizza.

If all this has put you in the mood to decorate for Christmas there are tons of things you could purchase so you could have a bit of that Disney magic at home.

Hundreds of ornaments for your tree!

Also, a hat for everyone. Mickey ears for Christmas to Snowman heads for Hanukkah.

I thought this was a fun piece that was new to Disneyland. It is the park bench where Walt sat and dreamed up his idea for Disneyland.

Just think, someone, some where may be sitting on a park bench right now dreaming up the next future place where someone like me can go walk around for exercise and be so entertained in doing so.

Walking around Disneyland sure gets your steps in. Though you don't think of it as exercise. There is way to much fun stuff around you to distract you. We walked about 4 miles.

Well, tomorrow is my weigh in. Sure hope I was able to do some damage control and not gain weight. Though I fear I will see that number on the scale go up this time.

At least I will face the music, whatever tune it may be. Then last week will be over and I can forget about it. I will only look forward, not back.

Don't forget, I still have my giveaway going on. You have until tomorrow. If you have not yet done so, please scroll down and enter if you like.

I'll let you all know how I do tomorrow and don't forget to let me know how you guys doing the challenge are doing too!

I think if I lived that close to Disney, I'd have to try to get a job there.. I can't imagine a happier or more cheerful place to work! Thanks for sharing their Christmas decor! I've been to the one in CA once and to the one in FL twice (although never at Christmastime)... They are such fun places to visit!... Donna
