    What time is the holiday parade during the month of November? Specifically November 14-17?

    Happy Holidays Amy!

    I love that you are planning to visit the Happiest Place on EARth at the most Wonderful Time of the yEAR! A Christmas Fantasy Parade is one of the most delightful experiences at Disneyland Resort during the holidays. My absolute favorite is the Toy Soldiers - their “marching-dancing” cracks me up every time!

    Typically the parade happens twice a day, in the afternoon and the evening. In the past, the show has been at 3:30 PM and 6:00 PM, but remember that showtimes are subject to change and cancellation. Make sure to check the Entertainment Guide (paper or via the Disneyland app) on the day you are planning to watch the parade.

    Speaking of watching, I think one of the best viewing spots is in front of “it’s a small world.” There is plenty of space, and interactive kiosks to keep the kiddos entertained if everyone else has the same idea, head over to the side of Alice in Wonderland, across from the drinking fountains!

    Besides the parade, you MUST watch the lighting of Sleeping Beauty Castle! It typically is twice in the evening, and it is a magnificent sight to see! The castle decks its halls with gorgeous LED lights and snow that sparkles. Total bonus - the snow smells like gingerbread!

    Amy, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. I wish you a joyful holiday season!
