New holiday attractions at Disneyland

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KFSN) -- The "happiest place on earth" is even merrier this season. Disneyland is not only decked out for the holidays, it's also celebrating its Diamond anniversary.

On top of all that they've turned Tomorrowland into a Star Wars theme park of its own. The holiday spirit is alive at Disneyland as thousands of people come from all over the country here to celebrate at "the merriest place on earth."

Christmas has come to Disneyland, and a 60 foot tall tree sits at main street while decorations line the park.

"Right now there's so much happening," Disneyland ambassador Jessica Bernard said. "We're still celebrating our Diamond celebration and our 60th anniversary and we just kicked off the holidays so the happiest place on earth just got merrier, and we've just launched season of the force."

Around the park, you can see excitement. The holiday parade even glistens with your favorite Disney princes and princesses. "Yeah, it makes Christmas even funner," Luis Cej of Modesto said. "Tomorrowland has been transformed into seasons of the force with Stormtroopers and young Jedi's in training.

One of the neat attractions at Disneyland is at the Star Wars Launch Bay. It's where you can actually meet a couple of your favorite characters like Chewbacca. You also have a chance to get in touch with the dark side and meet Darth Vader.

Space Mountain has been transformed into Hyperspace Mountain, taking guests into an X-Wing starfighter battle as they race through the darkness. Carolers sang "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas," and it's especially true at the Small World ride, now glowing with over 60,000 led lights.

"I'm a big kid," Rhonda Enight said. "Disneyland is for everybody no matter how old you are. Enight came from the Valley with her daughter and says it's been a trip to remember. "The memories my daughter and I made together," Enight said.

From the Star Wars season to the Sleeping Beauty castle, it's a magical time at Disneyland. The holiday celebration lasts until January 6.
