Jon Caramanica of The New York Times complimented the album's four singles for "show[ing] [West] at or near his best", but found GOOD Music's other rappers to be "a mixed bag". Jonah Weiner of Rolling Stone called the album "occasionally exhilarating, ultimately underwhelming", and observed "no grand statements, but plenty of hot lines", with West as "the star ... who bum-rushes every song he's on like it's someone else's acceptance speech". The magazine later named it the 24th best record of 2012 in a year-end list.

BEST time to go. Due to all the late night partying of some the night before and/or that many were in Pasadena for the Rose Parade, the park was almost empty. Could walk right onto most every ride!

Please get a return ticket or join the standby line which currently has a wait of 3 hours. Please note that you will still need to queue for the attractions once you are allowed entry - Forbidden Journey has a current wait time of 3 hours, 15 minutes. Have a great day and remember that causing me bodily harm will result in your being removed from the park without a refund. If you think this whole situation is insane - so do I!

All 9 of us stayed in the Disneyland hotel, it was our first Disney trip.. And it was amazing !!! We've since been to Florida, several times including just before Christmas and to the California one, but nothing can compare to the time we had then.. It is a memory to last a life time :0) Space mountain on Christmas Day was just out of this world.. And because we enjoyed the parks so much we even skipped the £90 a head Christmas dinner and plumped tor mc Donald's ! It's all sounds mental and possibly not for everyone... But if I could relive any holiday it would be that one :0) The place was magical... Simply magical :0) Fred RoyDecember 22, 2012 at 8:56 AM · I did spend one Christmas at the Magic Kingdom. It was in the late 70's, can't remember the exact year. What I do remember is that the temperature in the morning was 28 degrees. It was the only time I have ever worn a winter coat to the park. It wasn't crowded at all until later in the day which was great. Ray SchroederDecember 22, 2012 at 10:07 AM · I spent Christmas in the Kingdom 2 yrs ago. Crazy crowded but worth it.

As soon as we arrived, he said that it would be more fun with friends. As we were eating lunch, my wife was sending text messages to friends wishing them Merry Christmas and received a reply that one of her friends was coming to Legoland unaware that we were already there! My son was very excited--his Christmas Wish came true! This article has been archived and is no longer accepting comments. 2b1af7f3a8
