I just read an article about how this may be the last year that all the Christmas festivities will be open to everyone in the park. Starting in 2013 that Disneyland will be doing Christmas party tickets the same as it is doing Halloween. The article said that would include the fireworks with "snow" and the Christmas parade.You can read the article on micechat. Sorry I don't know how to link it to this site. Anybody else see this?
