Merry Christmas from Buena Vista Street

This June, Disney's California Adventure's former Sunshine Plaza opened its  newly themed land - Buena Vista Street -  Though named for the real-life Burbank thoroughfare that the Walt Disney Studios sits on, the central plaza represents Los Angeles in the 1920s, when Walt Disney first arrived there. I just have fallen in love with the Art Deco/Mission style atmosphere and even more so when the winter holidays have sprinkled their magic.

You feel transported to another time as you should, after all this is Disney. The Walt Disney Company has really pulled out the magic..

I finally saw and heard The Buena Vista Street Community Bell Ringers, Santa Claus in the Elias & Co Jewelry department got an earful from me and I could not stop wanting to sing and dance around to the  beautifully decorated tree near Carthay Circle Theater. (The Nutcracker ballet still in my bones) 

I kept hearing  "You'll shoot your eye out!" in my head as I waited to see Santa. I feel I should tell Santa that I want a Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock. I felt so out of place with my wardrobe. Everything is so polished and on que, the elves are  sweet,helpful  and what is even better - they give you a Candy Cane treat!  I am ready to shop now with the Holiday Spirit in the air - Thank goodness I can  have my purchases waiting for me at the entrance because I did some damage to the wallet. Now I must figure out where to hide the goodies from the family! 

Just wait and see what Sarge's Surplus has to offer when I report form Cars Land - Route 66 here I come!
