    Hey! We will be visiting both Disneyland parks during the long weekend in November 2024. We had hoped that it would also be the kick off to the holidays and we are so sad to hear it’ll be the week after. What can we still expect with lights and decoration?

    Hello, Alexa!

    Thanks for your question! I know from experience that it's hard to predict just when pixie dust will land at the Disneyland Resort. My panelist friends and I have all been there, you're in good company!

    I was so excited when the Disney Parks Blog released the Disneyland Resort 2024 Calendar of Events! It's an amazing resource to help guests decide when they'd like to visit the parks. But I do recognize that many planners already had visits on the calendar, and I'm so sorry that your dates didn't quite align with the start of the holiday celebrations.

    While you probably won't see special entertainment or menu items for the season during your visit, it's likely that you'll still be able to see some of the holiday decorations. Sometimes the snow starts sneaking in so early that the spooky season and the holidays collide! I'm sure Jack Skellington has something to do with this plan. It sounds just like him, doesn't it? The holiday lights may not be on at night, so if you want to have the decorations stand out in your pictures then I recommend taking photos during the day. But even without holiday lights, Disneyland Park always looks incredible at night! 

    No matter what time of year you visit, there are wonderful things to do at the Disneyland Resort! You're planning far in advance (which is awesome) so there will probably be new and exciting things that we don't even know about yet. Will you be able to float through the bayou with Tiana and her friends? Maybe! If you can, I'd recommend taking a poncho with you. November can be chilly at the Disneyland Resort, especially if you're wet! 

    Alexa, I'm sorry you'll just miss the start of the holidays. But I hope you'll take advantage of what may be a quieter week at the parks to enjoy all of the magic that Disneyland Park delivers every single day! 

    Keep moving forward!
