    Is Disneyland doing a special event holiday party this year?

    Greetings, Jamie, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so excited for your visit to the Merriest Place on Earth in just a few short days!

    I recently attended Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World Resort, and I loved getting in the holiday spirit with delicious holiday cookies, an adorable holiday parade, and festive fun around every corner. Unlike Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort isn’t offering a special holiday party this year. Instead, Disneyland Resort includes tons of holiday fun with your theme-park admission at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park! So, you won’t need to worry about purchasing a separate event ticket. Here are a few of my favorite ways to celebrate the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort:

    1. A Christmas Fantasy Parade – This ranks as one of my favorite parades at the Disneyland Resort! Grab a cup of hot chocolate and find a cozy spot on Main Street, U.S.A. to enjoy this festive and fun parade.

    2. Believe…In Holiday Magic Fireworks Spectacular – There’s no better way to end the night than by viewing this holiday fireworks show. Stay around for the finale, as snow falls on parts of Main Street, U.S.A., “it’s a small world” Holiday in Fantasyland, and near Rivers of America.

    3. Meet Santa Claus – Everyone’s favorite jolly ol’ elf has arrived at the Happiest Place on Earth! Find him in Redwood Creek Challenge Trail in Disney California Adventure Park, or in Pooh’s thotful spot in Critter Country at Disneyland Park. Track him down with the Disneyland app!

    4. “it’s a small world” Holiday – This is one of my favorite holiday attraction overlays in the parks. Plus, you won’t want to miss the “it’s a small world” Holiday Lighting, which takes place every 30 minutes in the evening.

    5. Disney Festival of Holidays – This festive seasonal celebration is full of multicultural music, food, and plenty of fun! Don’t miss the all-new Mickey’s Happy Holidays, as Mickey Mouse and his pals dance along to the rhythms of the Holiday Toy Drummers!

    I hope this helps you map out your magical holiday adventures, Jamie! Here’s the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival day to help get you started.

    See ya’ real soon!
