    It’s 60 days out from my Christmas Disneyland vacation that I have booked, and I am ready to make dining reservations. I don’t see any Christmas related dining, parades, or celebrations. Am I missing it?

    Welcome, McKinley! I'm so pleased you thought of planDisney as a helpful resource to get you some answers and continue the planning process for your very special holiday visit to the Disneyland Resort! I'm honored to help you today. 

    As you noted, dining reservation availability opens 60 days prior to your visit, so as of today, you should be able to locate reservations from now through November 14, 2023. However, I have not seen any specific holiday seasonal dining events announced on the Disney Eats section of the Disney Parks Blog (my go-to resource for updates and announcements). If plans are in the works to offer seasonal or holiday-themed dining events, such as a dining package for A Christmas Fantasy Parade, I would expect that news to come through that source, first. You can also use the filter "dining events" in the search tool for dining reservations on the official Disneyland mobile app or website. I'm sorry we don't have more detailed information at this time, but be sure to check back to see if more announcements are made in the coming weeks!

    Speaking of holiday food, I hope you'll be able to enjoy the Festive Foods Marketplaces during the Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure Park during your visit! I can't wait to see the menu of creative beverages and inspired dishes celebrating holidays from around the world! 

    We also know that iconic holiday classics like A Christmas Fantasy Parade, "Believe in Holiday Magic" Fireworks, and themed overlays on beloved attractions like "it's a small world" Holiday will be returning this year, too, so there will be plenty of holiday magic around Disneyland Resort! The merriest season of all begins November 9, 2023, and runs through January 7, 2024. 

    I hope this offers some helpful recommendations and resources for now, and that you'll feel welcome to check back as more information about the holiday season at Disneyland Resort continues to be revealed! If we can help with any other personal advice in the meantime, please don't hesitate to join us again here at planDisney. We'd love to answer any other questions that come up.

    Holiday magic awaits!
