12/17 Downtown Disney, Magic Kingdom, Contemporary and More

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe next week is Christmas, I’ll have a bigger photo update coming up in a few days – but here are pictures from Downtown Disney, the Contemporary Resort, Magic Kingdom and more!  I also recently put up over 200 Very Merry Christmas Party photos!

A sign in front of the stage (by the Marketplace Tree):

2010 Merchandise is now arriving, as well as Phineas and Ferb shirts I’ve not seen before (I have photos from last month when Phineas and Ferb visited the Magic Kingdom with Alyson Stoner!)

In the back of Toontown, characters such as Goofy and Stitch were signing autographs (I was told that it was a “surprise” autograph signing).   I’ve not seen J Worthington Foulfellow from Pinocchio in the park much, so I have photos of him (he was also the easiest to get close to).

And I missed seeing the test at the Rock and Roller Coaster for the queue (with the DJ, etc. while guests were waiting for their Fast Pass times).  Here are a couple of photos after the test was completed, including the DJ booth:

Look back in the next few days for more Christmas photos at Walt Disney World!
