PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland Resort 11/10/20 (Christmas Decorations, Virtual Queue Wait Times, Buena Vista Street Reopening Prep, and Tons of NEW Holiday Merchandise)

With the reopening of Buena Vista Street just over a week away, we made our way to the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort to check out the latest holiday decorations and holiday merchandise! We arrived at Downtown Disney late in the afternoon on Tuesday. We found a spot to park and passed through the Temperature Screening and Security Checkpoint in less than 15 minutes.
