    Hi I have a question. I have never been to the Disneyland Resort at the holidays. I know they do holiday events at the park but do they offer ticked events like DisneyWorld has the Very Merry Christmas Party?

    Greetings, Nikki, and welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for coming to us with your question. Oh boy, you are in for a real treat if you choose to visit the Disneyland Resort over the Holidays! It's one of the most beautiful times to visit and the Cast Members do a phenomenal job of making everything so festive and wintry! It's actually one of my sister's Christmas traditions to visit the Parks with her family and view the decorations.

    At this time, Disney has not announced any Disneyland After Dark events over the Holiday Season. Back in 2021, they did hold a special ticketed event called Merriest Nites but it hasn't returned these past couple of years. The closest ticketed event around that time (as of this writing) would be the highly popular Oogie Boogie Bash, which ends on Halloween night. Even without a ticketed party, I love everything there is to see and do at both Parks for the Holidays. Believe me, you won't be disappointed! Of course, I would recommend following the Disney Parks Blog for any possible announcements of special events as the time of Sandy Claws draws near. 

    One thing that we do share with the Walt Disney World Resort is the annual Candlelight Ceremony. And be sure not to miss Haunted Mansion Holiday and "it's a small world" Holiday! Those are two attraction overlays that have been unique to the Disneyland Resort and are fan favorites! And you have to try a Mickey Gingerbread if you see one!

    Nikki, I wish you the best as you plan a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. Please feel free to write to us again if you have any more questions. It would be our pleasure to help you plan a magical vacation and you're always welcome at planDisney. Until next time!

    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
