The Holiday celebrations are coming back to the Disneyland Resort this year, starting November 12.
Magic is here with Holidays at the Disneyland Resort, and this year the merry making and fun festivities will run from Nov. 12, 2021, through Jan. 9, 2022.
Guests will enjoy a distinctly Disney holiday experience with beloved traditions that include the breathtaking Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade, and magical snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Park. At Disney California Adventure Park, guests will enjoy a heartwarming celebration that brings the holiday season to life with Disney Festival of Holidays, “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” Street Party and the merry motor-themed holiday décor on Route 66 in Cars Land.
Throughout the parks, guests will see Santa and Disney characters turned out in their holiday best, enjoy seasonal sweet treats at food and beverage locations, and shop at favorite Disney boutiques for memorable gifts for everyone on their lists.
The Disneyland Resort holiday celebration extends to Downtown Disney District and Hotels of the Disneyland Resort with traditional décor and festive entertainment adding to the merriment.
At Disneyland park, nostalgic holiday magic shines brightly with the glistening Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle and a 60-foot Christmas tree on Main Street, U.S.A. Both make wonderful photo locations for that cherished memory of your Holiday visit.
Entertainment making a comeback this year at the park includes “A Christmas Fantasy” parade where beloved Disney characters join Santa Claus for a merry musical celebration down Main Street, U.S.A. You may also see Santa making other stops within the parks throughout your visit. For the perfect kiss goodnight, you will be treated to “Believe … in Holiday Magic” fireworks spectacular and magical snowfall over portions of Main Street, U.S.A. Additionally, seasonal transformations will happen once again at “it’s a small world” Holiday and the 20th installation of Haunted Mansion Holiday.
