    We have just booked our first Disneyland trip for our family arriving Nov. 7,8 &9, 2017. Is there anything special we should know about happening in the parks during this time???

    Hi Lainey!
    I'm very excited to know you'll be visiting the Disneyland Resort in early November!
    That's a great time of year to spend time at the Happiest Place on Earth because you'll notice the Parks will not be as crowded and lines for attractions will move fairly quickly!
    The first two weeks of November are usually a time of transition at the Disneyland Resort.
    Once the Halloween Festivities are over at the end of October, the Park begins its Holiday transformation, which includes plenty of Holiday cheer, decorations and treats as well as a giant Christmas Tree at the entrance of Main Street, U.S.A. and Sleeping Beauty's castle with an awesome glittering Christmas light overlay!
    When you get there, the Holiday decorations will probably start making an appearance though they are not fully installed until about the end of the second week in November.
    Nonetheless, there is plenty to celebrate at Disneyland.
    I would suggest you take advantage of a special offer for guests who want to enjoy the return of Fantasmic! with a wonderful dining experience. You can book a Fantasmic! dining package and indulge in great food and magical entertainment.
    There's also the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT attraction at California Adventure.
    The thrills from this ride alone will make it an unforgettable trip!
    Please remember to download the Disneyland Mobile App so you can check to see the hours and schedules for character meet and greets and all your favorite attractions!
    Have a Magical time!
