The holiday season is in full swing at the Disneyland Resort. Recently, I had the opportunity to experience firsthand the magic of the season both parks have to offer by attending a special media preview. We were in for quite the treat. Nobody does the holidays quite like Disney. Both parks are decorated with thousands of twinkling lights and over 700 decorated trees can be found throughout resort. Both parks join in on the celebration with holiday twists on your favorite attractions and shows.
- It’s a Small World Holiday: This popular attraction is glammed up for the holidays as you take a journey and celebrate the holidays throughout the world.
- Christmas Fantasy Parade: This classic parade features all of your favorite characters all dressed up in their holiday best.
- Santa’s Reindeer Round Up: Head over to Frontierland for some one on one time with Santa and to have an up and close look at real live reindeer!
- Haunted Mansion Holiday: Jack Skellington and friends transform the Haunted Mansion to a winter wonderland sort of.. A fun twist to this classic ride.
Disney California Adventure
- World of Color: Our favorite show is revamped for the holidays and better than ever!
- Santa’s Seaside Pavilion: Make sure to stop at Paradise Pier to have your picture taken with Santa and have the kids share their list.
- “Phineas and Ferb’s Rockin’ Rollin’ Dance Party” captures the holiday spirit with holiday décor and songs throughout the day at Paradise Pier.
From having your own personal meet and greet with Santa, to watching a holiday-themed World of Color show at Disney California Adventure or even experiencing the magic of snow falling on a sunny Southern California day, the holiday season at the Disneyland Resort has something for everyone.
Holiday time at the Disneyland Resort will run through January 8th, 2012.
