It's starting to finally get a little chilly here in Southern California. I've noticed that guests in Disneyland have replaced sandals and shorts with pants and parkas. We've seemed to really skip the whole in between phase of shorts and a hoodie. Yes, it's common to see local residents sporting shorts and sweatshirts. What can I say, it's a California thing. This year, the cold winter weather is falling on us quick. The Rivers of America is so beautiful, and I love it even more during the Holidays. It just feels right. There is a very unique atmosphere that is caused by the surrounding area of Frontierland and New Orleans Square that brings a cheerful spirit to the river during Christmas.
