    Disneyland's Holiday Enchantment opens on Friday, Nov. 12.

    Well, we don't know where you'll be -- possibly working away on one of those famous Candy Palace candy canes that only come out at the holidays -- but we'll be over by Snow White's Wishing Well some time after dusk.

    Why? Because that's the best place to see Sleeping Beauty's Castle all dressed up for the holidays. Wait. Scratch that. That's the best place to see *the reflection* of Sleeping Beauty's Castle all dressed up for the holidays. The kind of amazing, upside-down, watery-shimmer of a castle that appears in the moat beneath the Disneyland landmark.

    Cameras out, snap snap snap.

    Disneyland's annual Holiday Enchantment opens on Friday, Nov. 12, meaning that a lot of people will be standing near the wishing well (or in their personal, favorite, oh-so-secret castle-close spot) to catch the lit-up turrets and their moatly reflection. There will also be the eating of seasonal treats (see the candy canes above) or taking pictures with a certain mouse who looks to be all decked-out for some caroling.

    Then there's the Main Street "snow" and the Christmas-y parade and real reindeer and all the festive bunting everywhere and yes, "it's a small world" done up, holiday-style. Okay, favorite second spot at the holidays: Watching the it's a small world clock tick-tock, surrounded by lights, preferably while gnawing on a candy cane.

    Holiday Enchantment at Disneyland runs through Sunday, Jan. 2.
