    What is commencement date for Christmas Holidays overlay in 2023?

    Hi there, Scott!

    Welcome to planDisney! The holidays still feel like they're off in the distance, but they'll definitely be here before we know it. And let's be honest, it's never too early for a little holiday cheer!

    We don't have an official start date for the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort just yet, but I would expect to see an announcement on the Disney Parks Blog very soon! Last year the blog announced the official dates in August, so I would imagine that the dates for 2023 are just a week or two away from being announced. As a reference, last year the holidays were officially celebrated from November 11, 2022, to Jan 8, 2023, and over the years I'd say that things usually get extra merry around the second weekend in November. Hopefully we will have an official announcement soon!

    I do have some fun sneak peeks for the holidays this year that I can share! The Disney Parks Blog celebrated "Halfway to the Holidays" by showing us what holiday fashions Mickey and Minnie will be wearing this year! We also know that some fan-favorite treats will be back, including my personal "must-have" treat: the Mickey Gingerbread cookie! This cute little treat is super popular, so I recommend downloading the Disneyland Mobile App and using mobile ordering to grab yours early in the day. Cookies are a great breakfast food when you're on holiday!

    No matter what time of year you visit the parks, it's always a great place to capture a photo for a holiday card! The planDisney Panelists shared all their best photo tips to help you get a photo that perfectly reflects the joy and personality of your crew. My pictures are always some of my most prized souvenirs from a trip, and the holiday decorations add an extra layer of magic!

    Scott, I'm wishing you safe travels and a truly magical holiday visit to the parks! 

    Keep moving forward!
