    What day does Disneyland and Disneys California Adventure holiday season start? Also do you know when the gingerbread house at the Grand Californian appears? We are going on Nov. 10-12. Thanks!!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Anne. Thanks for stopping by with your questions for us.

    There hasn't been an official announcement to the start date of "Holidays at the Disneyland Resort" yet. However, last year's festivities kicked off on Friday, November 13. There is a good chance you'll be able to partake in the Holiday celebrations during your trip. I suggest checking the Disney Parks Blog and the Disneyland Resort website for official announcements. 

    As for the famous life-size gingerbread house at the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, this can usually be found as it gets closer to Thanksgiving time. 

    I hope this information is helpful for you, Anne. Please visit us on the Panel again if you have further questions with planning your upcoming November trip to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Have a magical day,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
