    Hello :) The Park Hours/Event Schedule page for Dec 6, 2023 at California Adventure states that there's a Special Ticketed Event from 9pm - 1am ... but I can't find any information about what this is. Any ideas?

    Hiya, Dustin, and welcome to planDisney! I hope you're planning a Disneyland Resort visit soon because the holidays are magical. Let's check out the official park calendar to see what might be going on. I love being a Great Mouse Detective!

    I perused the December calendar for Disney California Adventure Park and saw that the park will close at 9:00 PM on the 6th. That's an hour earlier than most nights that week, and I see the Special Event runs from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM. The mystery deepens!

    So I reached out to a sleuth of a Cast Member who deduced that there was a private event scheduled that evening. If I had to offer my best hypothesis, I'd guess it's a party hosted by a local company. But that's pure speculation, Dustin!

    If you plan to visit the theme park on December 6, my best tip is to get there early and enjoy a full day. You're bound to have a holly-jolly time.

    I have some good news to share! My detective's nose led me to check showtimes for World of Color - Season Of Light that week. This holiday show typically starts at 9:00 PM, but on December 6, there's an earlier start time of 8:45 PM to accommodate guests who aren't attending the private event. I saw this festive show last year, and it gave me goosebumps!

    Dustin, I hope I've solved the "Mystery of the Disneyland Calendar" for you. Please stop by planDisney anytime. Just follow the clues to find us!

    Magic awaits,
