    Looking to plan a December trip to Disneyland. I was wondering before I book it if there will be any special promotions for Southern California residents during that time

    Hey there, Jessy!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so happy to see you here with your question! I see that you're planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort over the Holiday Season. That's a great time to visit because everything will be so festively decorated. One of my favorite things during this time is A Christmas Fantasy Parade, which I highly recommend catching if you have the chance. The song is so catchy and I definitely think of the Holidays whenever I hear it now.

    I wish I had Madame Leota's Crystal Ball to help predict when Disneyland will release future special offers, Jessy, but I'm afraid that we don't have any information on when Disney decides to release ticket discounts. We've already had a Southern California Resident Ticket Offer and a general California Resident Ticket Offer come and go this year. In fact, Disney just released a special Kids' Special Ticket Offer coming soon for visit dates early next year! I would recommend that you keep checking the Offers and Discounts page to see if anything comes up that would apply to you. Last year, Disney did release a special Southern California Resident Ticket Deal on December 1 but it applied for visits early the following year. 

    The Holiday Season is so beautiful at the Happiest Place on Earth! You'll see Sleeping Beauty Castle covered in thousands of twinkling lights and you might even experience snowfall in Southern California during the "Believe...In Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular! Grab yourself a yummy snack at the Festive Foods Marketplace and don't forego that Mickey Gingerbread Cookie. 

    Jessy, I hope that this was helpful for you and that you are able to visit the Disneyland Resort as part of your Holiday celebration this year! If there is anything else you'd like from us, please write back again anytime. You're always welcome at planDisney!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
