The text list below contains the captions of all images in the set.
Approaching the ticket booths at 2:55pm.. lines are guests like us with tickets valid at 3pm.
In line and waiting to enter.
All ticket options were available today.. so that means the park is not a complete mob.
Looking toward the right hard to believe that is hotel over the entrance to a themepark.
In the park a couple minutes after 3pm.
A large ship with the Disney Characters is in the plaza to mark the 15th Anniversary of the park.
Mickey off on the right greeting guests.

Entering the American Waterfront which is really decked out for the season.
Many of the shows feature Christmas components. A Table is Waiting is one of them. The sings throughout have been updated for the holidays.

Waterfront Park is decorated for Christmas with trees, lights, garland and more.
Event the benches have a holiday theme.
Crystals are set up in each port of call for the anniversary. This is the back side of the American Waterfront one.
Walking around to the front side. This one features Minnie Mouse. You can use a crystal to activate it or you can press several points too. On activation it does a light show at night and plays a sound throughout the day and night.

This line leads to a popcorn cart...
This Christmas tree features Duffy and always seemed to have a healthy line.
The Popcorn cart with the line featured Milk Chocolate and Duffy buckets.
At this point I turned around to head back.

The line for a Table is Waiting was only on one side on the way back as they had started to fill the theater.

Here you can see the line to get your picture in front of the tree.
Not sure why there are random guests sitting on the ground.
Ran into the drive again.
The lamp from Aladdin under the tree and a plate. I had planned to go back and try and get pictures of the gifts without a crowd.. but always seemed to be crowded.
