    I will be taking vacation on November 12th. Will Small World be closed for holiday decorating?

    Greetings Helen! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We’re so happy you’ve stopped by with a question! A trip in early November should certainly allow you to experience the holiday season at “The Merriest Place on Earth!”

    While official dates for 2020 have not been released, let’s take a look at last year’s holiday season to get an idea of what to expect this year. Holidays at the Disneyland Resort started on November 8, 2019 and ended January 6, 2020. The Cast Member I spoke to confirmed that the Disneyland Resort holiday decorations including the “it’s a small world” Holiday overlay are usually complete by Veteran's Day each year. This year, Veteran’s Day falls on Wednesday, November 11. So your trip to Disneyland on November 12 might be just in time for you to experience the Most Magical Time of the year!

    I absolutely love spending the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort! All the Characters are decked out in festive attire and there are plenty of tasty holiday treats to try! Sleeping Beauty’s Castle is covered in snow and lights. Also, “it’s a small world” is not the only attraction that gets a festive overlay. Make sure to check out Haunted Mansion Holiday where Jack Skellington has decked the halls with frightfully festive decor. Plus, both theme parks feature a holiday parade and a festive nighttime spectacular! At Disneyland, you’ll enjoy A Christmas Fantasy Parade and “Believe...In Holiday Magic” Fireworks! At Disney California Adventure Park you’ll experience Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party and World of Color - Season of Light! The holidays are the perfect time of year to plan your visit! 

    Enjoy the magic of the season at the Disneyland Resort and head back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions!
