    When will the Christmas lights be up?

    Hi there, Patricia! Thanks for stopping by planDisney and asking your question!

    The Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are truly amazing! Although it's not quite Halloween yet, the parks are already starting to transition to The Holidays decor. There is already snow on Sleeping Beauty castle! The Holidays officially kick off on November 12, and that is when you can expect all the twinkling lights, glittering garland, and sparkling Christmas trees to be up around the parks, Downtown Disney District, and the Disneyland Resort Hotels. 

    Because the parks are so beautiful and there is extra fun to be had with A Christmas Fantasy Parade and the Believe...in Holiday Magic nighttime spectacular, this is a very popular time to visit. I recommend purchasing your theme park tickets and making your theme park reservations as soon as you are able. There is currently ample availability on the theme park reservation availability calendar, but I wouldn't be surprised if those dates start to get gobbled up fast. You'll also want to keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog to see if they announce any special food or entertainment offerings as The Holidays approach. 

    I hope this helps. Have a magical day!
