    We are going to Disneyland Feb 26 - Mar 2. I'm noticing there are no parades or fireworks shows on the schedule in January or February. Do they not do these during the winter months?

    Hi Lisa!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your trip will be here before you know it! You are correct that on the dates of your travel there are no parades or fireworks on the event calendar. These next few months are unique, because currently Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are undergoing a number of major refurbishments. This summer Disney California Adventure Park will welcome the brand new Pixar Pier which you can read all about on the Disney Parks Blog. In Disneyland Park, Main Street, U.S.A. is getting new brick paving which will really make this area stand out.

    Fear not as there is still plenty of evening entertainment for you to experience! Two amazing nighttime spectaculars, World of Color and Fantasmic!, are both scheduled during your trip dates. Make sure to grab FASTPASSES for these early in the day to get a great viewing location at these impressive shows.

    There are also many attractions that take on a whole new look and feel during the night, so this is something else that would be great to do in lieu of fireworks or parades. Some of my favorite nighttime attractions are Radiator Springs Racers and the Golden Zephyr in Disney California Adventure Park. In Disneyland Park I just love the glowing surroundings of the Astro Orbiter as well as taking a speedy alpine run on the Matterhorn Bobsleds under the stars.

    I hope this gives you some ideas about planning your evenings at the Happiest Place on Earth. Have a magical day!
