Let’s hang out in New Orleans Square for a while, okay? There’s so much to see in there, and to be completely honest I’ve most often just blown through there on my way out of Pirates of the Caribbean (which, by the way, they renovated to widen the exit–badly needed!).

You almost expected another tree of severed princess heads.

Like the rest of Disneyland, the details are fully realized. Looking up:
I'll have a blue Christmas without Disneyland ornaments
And I’ll be honest here, the ornament shop is not my favorite. It’s tiny and the displays are a bit overwhelming. But if you’re looking for an ornament year-round–well…
