    We are planning another trip to the parks, but not sure what days to go. We would like to see both the Halloween & Christmas holiday decorations. What day do they change the decorations? This would really help us with our planning. Thank you, Rebecca

    Hi, Rebecca!

    I’m happy to hear you’re planning another visit to the Disneyland Resort this fall. November can be a great time to visit because the entertainment schedule is in full swing and winter holiday decorations and other seasonal extras begin appearing around the resort. However, the Halloween Time events officially end on October 31, with the exception of the Haunted Mansion Holiday attraction overlay, which is complete around late September and remains through the holiday season until early January. 

    In my experience, Christmas holiday decor is gradually added at night when the parks are closed and is complete by mid-November. So, while you may see some of the decorations and special extras around the theme parks, a late October or early November visit will be a bit too soon to experience everything that the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort has to offer,  like the “Holiday Time at Disneyland” Tour, "Believe...In Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular, Festival of Holidays, and A Christmas Fantasy Parade.

    I hope this helps you plan, Rebecca. Please feel free to ask me any other questions you may have about your pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
