    We come to Disneyland at least once every other year so we have eaten done done pretty much everything. What is something new for Christmas this year 2017? My kids will be 2 & 5 and their first time at Disneyland during the holidays.

    Good tidings, Ashley! I hope you are having a merry day! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    How exciting that your children will get to experience the wonder and joy that is the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort for the first time this year! So many festive memories are in store for your whole family. While the Disneyland Resort hasn't released the official details for the Holidays in 2017 quite yet, I think there will be some new things for you to experience if you haven't been in a year or two.

    Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure Park was introduced last year and will be returning in 2017. You will get to celebrate different cultures, indulge in delicious food from a vast variety of marketplace kiosks, experience a seasonal World of Color show, and even meet Santa in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail area.

    Over in Disneyland Park, you kids can share in your love and fond memories of classic holiday offerings like "it's a small world" Holiday, A Christmas Fantasy Parade, and, of course, the dazzling Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle. Jingle Cruise and Haunted Mansion Holiday are also slated to return. And you can usually count on a new, unique Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread House as it gets re-imagined every year.

    Make sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog as they will be the first to announce any new offerings for the Holidays. I hope you have a jolly visit to the Disneyland Resort this winter!
