    What Holiday special events are there in Disneyland during December? I thought the festival of holidays was a special event but I can’t see where to reserve

    Hey there, hi there, Terri! Welcome to planDisney. We are so glad you've stopped by to ask us a question about the holidays at Disneyland Resort!

    In just a few short weeks, Disneyland Resort will transform from spooky season to a magical winter wonderland. I am so glad you mentioned Disney Festival of the Holidays because it's one of my family's favorite things to experience together. This takes place over in Disney California Adventure Park and the good news is you do not need to purchase any special event ticket to enjoy it! This is included with standard ticket admission. Currently, there are no special events that need separate tickets during the holiday season. The only thing that I can currently find that would require reservations is the Holiday Time at Disneyland Resort Guided Tour or A Christmas Fantasy Parade Dining Package

    Now back to Disney Festival of the Holidays! While this doesn't require a special ticket to enjoy the festival, you will have the opportunity to purchase a Sip and Savor Pass that will have tabs for you to exchange for select food and non-alcoholic drinks available at the marketplace kiosks. You can also just pay as you go at any of the marketplace kiosks as well.

    I definitely recommend keeping tabs on the Disney Parks Blog. This is where all the latest announcements will be released regarding holidays in the parks. I am impatiently waiting for them to release the Disney Eats Foodie Guide to start making my list of all my must-eats!

    Terri, thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have fun planning your holiday visit. We are here if you have any other questions!
