Yes, we must be a little crazy going to Disneyland in December, but we were given 2 free tickets, which meant that we only had to buy one. It is extremely expensive to go to The Big D (as we used to call it when A was small), so when you are given tickets you take them. We only went for half a day as A had school and the tickets where only good on Friday. We had a good time and actually got onto a few rides. But by 9:30 the park was packed (and I mean packed) in anticipation of the fireworks show. The show started at 9:30 and ended at 9:35pm. Unfortunately due to high winds (personally could not see or feel any wind) they had to cancel the rest of the show. At that point we were tired and did not want to fight the crowds anymore. It was nice to see the park all decorated for Christmas and all in all we had a good time.
