    Hi! I just booked our trip for November of this year. Will there be any separately ticketed events that I need to know about for Christmas celebrations? Thank you

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Autumn, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    First off, congratulations on booking your November visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! The holidays are my favorite time of year at the Disneyland Resort… from the festive décor to the delicious treats, you can’t help but get that holiday feeling as soon as you step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. 

    While Walt Disney World Resort has Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Disneyland Resort doesn’t have a specially-ticketed event for the holiday season. In fact, I checked the Special Event Tickets page, and currently, the only separately-ticketed event scheduled is Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party, which runs through October 31, 2019. So, you won’t need to worry about purchasing any separate tickets in order to experience the magic of the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort

    There’s plenty of holiday cheer to be found at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park! My family’s favorite part of the holidays at the Disneyland Resort is watching the Christmas Fantasy Parade with a cup of hot cocoa in hand. This is the perfect way to celebrate the season, thanks to the cheerful holiday tunes, adorable Characters, and of course, Santa Claus! Also inside Disneyland Park, you’ll fall in love with the “it’s a small world” Holiday Lighting, along with the enchanting winter transformation of Sleeping Beauty Castle

    My family always tries to plan a holiday picture with Santa Claus inside Redwood Creek Challenge Trail in Disney California Adventure Park, too. It’s such a beautiful setting for holiday magic! Guests can also meet Santa Claus inside Disneyland Park, near Critter Country. I recommend downloading the Disneyland app to help your family easily spot Santa, wherever he may be!

    Also inside Disney California Adventure Park, you won’t want to miss Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party – it’s a lively and vibrant celebration for the whole family! This Party even features special guests, including The Three Caballeros, and even Mickey and Minnie Mouse! 

    Lastly, for the perfect end to your magical day, find a spot to watch the “Believe… In Holiday Magic” Fireworks Spectacular. The festive fireworks (and even a sprinkling of snow!) brings the joy and wonder of the season to life!

    Wishing you a magical and memorable holiday at the Merriest Place on Earth!
