Disneyland 2023 Holiday Season

"Happy, Merry, Holly, Jolly, Season’s Greetings here."

I’m wondering what your family does at that time of year?” The holiday season at the Disneyland Resort is on the horizon! Beginning November 10 and continuing through January 7, 2024, guests can enjoy the magic of the holiday season at the Happiest Place on Earth!

The seasonal parade, "A Christmas Fantasy Parade," will be starring lots of fan favorites like the Ice Queen herself. There will be an extra twinkle when it comes to Sleeping Beauty’s Castle this holiday season. Sleeping Beauty’s Castle will be decked out in icicles and snow-capped turrets along with some twinkling lights! The nighttime spectacular, "Believe…In Holiday Magic," will illuminate the night sky. You won’t want to leave the park early this holiday season; there will be a dusting of snow nightly, and we promise this is something you won’t want to miss! In Disney California Adventure at Paradise Bay, guests can enjoy "World of Color - Season of Light," a fountain projection show. Make sure that you are giving yourself a little bit of extra time this holiday season when it comes to rides and attractions; several rides receive a holiday overlay. In Disneyland, "It’s a Small World" holiday is a beautiful wintery waterway, and The Haunted Mansion is decked out by Jack Skellington for some Nightmare Before Christmas fun. Disney California Adventure’s Cars Land will be decked out for the holiday season at Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl and Mater’s Jingle Jamboree. These are some can’t-miss experiences, but the lines can get a little bit long.

At Disney California Adventure, Christmas isn’t the only holiday being celebrated. Guests can celebrate the traditions of holidays such as Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Navidad, Diwali, and Three Kings Day at Disney Festival of the Holidays. Festival of the Holidays features marketplaces full of holiday delicacies, performers at stage shows, in addition to Disney and Pixar characters who drum and march to the beat in "Mickey’s Happy Holidays," and Disney Viva Navidad! Bring your dancing shoes and feel free to join in on the holiday festivities and dance along! There will also be special characters who make guest appearances throughout the festival, so keep your eyes peeled for Mirabel and other beloved characters. Like other festivals at Disney California Adventure, there will be a sip and savor pass available to purchase that will include 8 tabs that can be redeemed at festival booths for food and beverages. These sip and savor passes are valid for the entire festival, so feel free to use them all in one day or continue to come back throughout the holiday season.
