Holiday Season Makes Spirits Bright at Disneyland Resort

Disneyland Resort and Disney’s California Adventure is preparing to share the magic and sparkle of the holidays with guests throughout the season. Many colorful decorations will adorn the theme parks with the best decorations coming after dark.  Sleeping Beauty Castle

As snowdrifts and icicles decorate Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, nightly snowflakes fall on Main Street to the sounds of “White Christmas”. At nightfall a sensational holiday light and special effects show spreads the magic from the castle all the way to the Christmas Tree in Town Square. 

 The Disneyland Christmas tree itself is designed to present  the nightly holiday light show with more than 62,000 lights.  The night lights continue with the “Believe … in Holiday Magic” fireworks show treating guests to the sights and sounds of the season. 

Haunted Mansion HolidaysSome of the most popular attractions include special festive versions:

  •  “it’s a small world” holiday transforms the attraction into a celebration of the season around the world
  •  Haunted Mansion Holiday  a celebration of traditions when Halloween and Christmas collide and Jack Skellington is left to decorate
  • A Christmas Fantasy parade  presented daily and holds holiday music and enchanted scenes with Disney characters
  • Big Thunder Ranch plays host to Santa Claus and his reindeer.  Kids and their families can visit with the jolly man himself while watching his reindeer graze in the corral.

California Adventure celebrates the season with whimsical decorations starting with the CALIFORNIA sign appearing as red and white swirled candy sticks.  Flik and his bug buddies have been busy decorating “a bug’s land” with giant Christmas lights and  extra-large ornaments. 

An extra special feature at the height of the season is the return of the very popular Disney’s Electrical Parade.

With all these extra touches, celebrating the holidays with family and friends at Disneyland Resort is sure to make the season a little more magical.
