Christmas at Disneyland

Earlier this year, our team attended the D23 Fan Expo in Anaheim, California and spent some time at Disneyland Resort.  This Christmas, Tiffany Gonzales had the chance to spend the day taking in the holidays in Walt’s original park – Disneyland!  We asked her to report back on the west coast festivities.  Take it away, Tiffany!
