    I am going with my family to Disneyland for Christmas, we are wanting to book a dinner on Christmas day, what restaurants are open on Christmas day? Also are any character restaurants open?

    Hi, Ashley!

    Christmas day at the Disneyland Resort sounds magical. The parks and resorts will be decked out in full holiday mode so this is the perfect way to spend this festive day. You will find attractions, resorts, shops, restaurants all operating normally on this day, so you will get the full "Disney" experience even on Christmas!

    Restaurants are open but may be busy. Plan ahead by making a dining reservation. This is quick and easy online. Select your date and time and your dining options will appear. A credit card is required to hold your reservation so have your card ready when reserving your dining times. Character dining is offered, but reservations are based on availability to so get your table secured soon!

    Since you will be away from home for Christmas, you might want to add a bit of holiday décor to your hotel room. Check out Disney Floral and Gifts for the perfect decorations or flowers for your room. It is such a nice addition to any vacation or holiday. 

    Please say an extra "Thank You" or "Merry Christmas" to all the Cast Members as they work super hard on the holiday to make sure your day is full of merriment and joy. Their work is very much appreciated by all of us!

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a pixie dust filled New Year!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
