Stay warm with photos from the Disneyland theme parks

Published: February 1, 2011 at 11:08 AM

Here's some eye candy for our snowed-in friends, today: More photos from the Disneyland Resort.

Let's start at Disneyland:

Sleeping Beauty's Castle

The longest line in the park (posted 30 minutes) was for the new Tangled meet-'n-greet in Fantasyland:

But you could walk right on the wildest ride in the wilderness.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Forget the Disney Dream, here are three of my favorites from the original Disney cruise line: The Sailing Ship Columbia, the Mark Twain and a Tom Sawyer's Island raft, cruising daily on the Rivers of America.

If you're looking for a more, uh, intense cruising experience, head over to Disney California Adventure for the Grizzly River Run.

We continue to call our bought-long-ago Disney bear "Freddie," but he can find a slew of new clothes now, made for his identical cousin, Duffy.

Finally, a look at California's Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

Stay warm, everyone.

Nice pictures Robert!

Has there been any plans this year for the annual "Greatest Ride" tournament?

Natalie just had the best line about Duffy: "It's like American Girl dolls for little boys."
