Ring In the Holidays at Disneyland® Resort

“The Happiest Place on Earth” becomes the merriest place on earth during the holidays.

Holidays at the Disneyland® Resort returns November 9, offering special holiday entertainment, attractions and treats through January 6. This is the place where traditions are shared, memories are made and the spirit of the season shines even brighter. And this year, the holiday celebration returns with wonder, joy and, of course, plenty of Disney magic in both Parks.

Disney Festival of Holidays brings the sights, sounds and tastes of diverse seasonal celebrations to Disney California Adventure® Park. The centerpiece of this spectacular festival is Disney ¡Viva Navidad!, a lively street party featuring Mexican folklóric performers, Brazilian samba dancers and Disney Characters. And everyone will love sampling the wide variety of delicious fare available at the Festival Foods Marketplace. After you fill up, be sure to cruise over to Cars Land, where Mater’s Jingle Jamboree and Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl put the holiday cheer in overdrive!

Of course, what would the holidays be without the timeless seasonal favorites in Disneyland® Park? Behold the shimmering Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, marvel at the twinkling “it’s a small world” holiday, delight in “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade and see what happens when holidays collide in Haunted Mansion Holiday. But whatever you do, don’t miss the dazzling “Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks spectacular, complete with its heartwarming “snowfall” finale.

So, whatever brings the holidays to life for you—the taste of a freshly made candy cane from the shop on Main Street, U.S.A., the warmth of a hot cocoa as you watch the parade go by or the laughter as you gather with friends and family for a photo in front of the towering tree on Buena Vista Street—get ready to experience it again. Because the holidays begin here…and the magic never ends.

Attractions and entertainment may be seasonal and are subject to change without notice.

Today, people's lives are so busy. We're thinking three days ahead just to get through our to-do lists. I love helping my clients plan vacations where they have nothing to do but relax; where time stands still, and you're just on vacation.
