Celebrate the Holidays at Disneyland

The most magical time of year is even more magical when you spend it at a Disney Parks® destination. Walt Disney World® may have Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, but Disneyland® has its own special holiday celebration that should be at the top of your must do list when visiting Walt's original park.

Disneyland Park® decks the halls from top to bottom, including special holiday overlays of "it's a small world" and the Haunted Mansion. In addition to the classic "it's a small world" song, guests will hear a medley of traditional holiday songs and delight in the thousands of twinkling lights that adorn the building. The Haunted Mansion is inspired by Tim Burton's beloved The Nightmare Before Christmas with jack 'o lanterns, wreaths, and more.

You can catch the Christmas Fantasy Parade twice a day as it travels down Main Street, U.S.A. Join Mickey, Minnie, Buzz, Woody, Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and Santa Claus as they dance and sing in celebration of the holidays. End your day with the "Believe...in Holiday Magic" fireworks spectacular with holiday songs and thousands of lights that turn into icicles on Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle. Be sure to grab a Times Guide or check the Disneyland® app for exact show times.
