    My family is heading to DL and DCA 1st week in Dec for the first time. What tours do you recommend for 1st timers? 'Looking at the holiday time at Disneyland' tour

    Hi, Ashleigh!

    I'm glad to hear you're planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort this holiday season! The seasonal decorations, events and merchandise make The Happiest Place on Earth even more delightful! You won’t want to miss the Haunted Mansion Holiday and “it’s a small world” Holiday attractions, and the "Believe...In Holiday Magic" fireworks show is a must-see.

    It’s a wonderful idea to go on one of the guided tours, especially since you’re visiting for the first time. There are several to choose from, and the Walk in Walt’s Disneyland Footsteps Guided Tour that is currently offered even includes an exclusive peek at Walt’s original apartment in Town Square! On the Holiday Time at Disneyland Tour, you can hear holiday tales from Disneyland Park history, experience seasonal attractions and watch A Christmas Fantasy Parade from a reserved viewing area while enjoying a delicious treat and warm beverage. Please call (714) 781-TOUR (8687) to reserve your spots up to one month in advance.  

    I’m also really excited about a show coming to Disney California Adventure Park called “World of Color—Winter Dreams,” a nighttime water spectacular that will bring all-new and amazing animation to the popular show. Be sure to try my absolute favorite dessert at the Disneyland Resort, the Yule Log cake at Plaza Inn restaurant on Main Street, U.S.A. This yummy treat is only available during the holidays, so I look forward to enjoying it all year long!

    I hope this information is helpful, Ashleigh. Please write back with more questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted holiday vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
