    planning a trip for Dec 17th - 20th. Can not find the calendar for Dec. Need to know if the park is going to close early during that time. I do not want to spend that kind of money if the park is closed.

    Greetings, Michael, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The Holiday Season is my favorite time of year at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, and I can’t wait for you to experience the magic, too!

    The Disneyland Resort Park Hours are typically updated about six-weeks ahead, so I’d expect you to start seeing updated Park Hours for your December vacation dates by about November 5, 2019. Since the holiday season is such a special time in the theme parks, I don’t anticipate either park closing early. Last year during your vacation dates, Disneyland Park closed at midnight, and Disney California Adventure Park closed at 10:00 PM. Of course, this schedule is subject to change, but I’d estimate that the hours will be similar this year, too.

    There are so many exciting experiences to look forward to during the holidays! Kick off the fun with the Christmas Fantasy Parade, featuring magical music, entertaining performances, and for the grand finale… Santa Claus! You also won’t want to miss the “it’s a small world” Holiday Lighting, and the winter transformation of Sleeping Beauty Castle… both will captivate your family, and get you in the holiday spirit in no time!

    Inside Disney California Adventure Park, one of my favorite holiday experiences is Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party, featuring vibrant music, dancing, and even special guests, including The Three Caballeros, and Mickey and Minnie Mouse! 

    Wishing you a holly, jolly visit to the Merriest Place on Earth!
