    What are the hours at Disneyland and California Adventure on Christmas Eve?

    Hi there, Vicki!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't think of a more magical and merry place to celebrate the holidays than at the Disneyland Resort. You are going to absolutely love the festive decor and special seasonal touches located at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. From delicious eats to Christmas-themed attractions, there are so many ways to celebrate the season.

    Park hours are generally available six weeks in advance online, so we still are not quite sure what the park hours will be for Christmas Eve just yet. The past few years Disneyland Park has stayed open until midnight and Disney California Adventure Park has closed at 10 PM on Christmas Eve, but this year's hours are always subject to change. You should hopefully see hours for these dates available online around mid-November. Also at this time you can check entertainment schedules for parades, fireworks, musical acts, and nighttime spectaculars. You won't want to miss the classic A Christmas Fantasy Parade and "Believe...in Holiday Magic" Fireworks.

    For a fun multicultural holiday celebration, you must check out the seasonal offerings in Disney California Adventure Park's Festival of the Holidays. Here you can sample diverse foods from around the world as well see unique entertainment offerings. Last year I had a blast watching Disney's ¡Viva Navidad! as a part of this celebration.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions as you plan your holly jolly vacation. Have a magical day!
