by Michael Ramirez, Editorial Content Director, Disneyland Resort
The Holidays at the Disneyland Resort begins Nov. 9, transforming the Happiest Place on Earth into the merriest! From tasting tidings to spirited entertainment, here is what we are most excited to experience:
“A Christmas Fantasy” Parade at Disneyland park: “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade is a Disneyland holiday tradition! Whether it’s Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse offering yuletide greetings, Santa Claus with his prancing reindeer or Disney Princesses dancing at the Candlelight Ball, everyone has a favorite part of this classic parade. As we get ready to welcome back “A Christmas Fantasy” parade, the last day to experience “Pixar Play Parade” will be Nov. 4.
Festive Food Marketplaces at Disney California Adventure park: As part of the Festival of Holidays, the delicious mix of holiday dishes and beverages found at the Festive Food Marketplaces celebrate diverse cuisines, cultures and traditions. Come hungry! To make way for Festival of Holidays, “Paint the Night” parade will conclude its limited run on Nov. 7.
“Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks at Disneyland park: In the evening, spirits will soar during the awe-inspiring “Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks spectacular. This returning favorite culminates with a magical snowfall finale—a truly special wintry treat!
Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party at Disney California Adventure park: As part of the Disney ¡Viva Navidad! holiday celebration, a colorful street party comes to life with musicians, dancers and giant mojiganga puppets. The Three Caballeros—Donald Duck, Panchito and José Carioca—lead a jolly, joyous celebration!
Seasonal Decor at the Disneyland Resort: Where ever you look, the sights, sounds and tastes of holidays will put you right into the spirit! The halls will certainly be decked—from the glistening Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle at Disneyland park to the gussied up sparkle along Route 66 in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park.
