We haven't seen the dancing water show yet, so maybe this year we'll do it. My son enjoys all the rides and he is especially looking forward Radiator Springs in California Adventure. We rode the racers in August and didn't have to wait too long. My son has special needs so we were able to access the special assistance pass.
The crowds are at a minimum in mid November so that is a bonus! We'll be there right when the Christmas decorations are up. It's always fun seeing Jack Skellington in the Haunted Mansion and all the beautiful lights up on Main Street. I like seeing the snow fall since we never see snow in So. California.
My son will be 18 this year and will always be a Disney fanatic. He loves going to Disneyland! He takes his ear muffs for the loud rides, as he has sensitivity to noise. It looks okay in the Fall and Winter, but looks a little funny in the Spring and Summer. Can't wait to take him! So looking forward to it! It's like a mini vacation. We always go on a Thursday-Friday so he gets to miss school.
