    We are coming from Australia at Christmas time when are the parks open during that time.

    Hi there, Megan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your question!

    Visiting the Disneyland Resort during the Holidays is glorious! The parks are dazzling with all the lights and holiday décor adorning nearly every inch plus there is special entertainment, seasonal overlays on select attractions, and you can even meet Santa Claus himself. Official park hours haven’t been released yet for November and December, but since this is a rather popular time to visit, hours are usually extended with openings around 8:00 a.m. and some days the parks don’t close until midnight. The parks are open every day of the year, though, including Christmas day. Be sure to keep your eye on the official schedule as your travel dates approach. 

    Another special offering during this time of year is the Festival of Holidays in Disney California Adventure Park. Discover how different cultures celebrate the holiday season through diverse food offerings at Festival Marketplace Kiosks, special entertainment, and unique décor.  You might even have the chance to meet some of your favorite characters decked out in their holiday best. 

    Follow the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest news on the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort. Happy planning!
