    We are visiting in December, what is the weather typically like beginning of the month? We normally go in July or August, so i am guessing there is a big difference in what attire to bring?

    Hi there, Autumn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for sending us your question. I am so glad to hear you’re planning a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth during the holiday season

    The Disneyland Resort theme parks will have lots of holiday-themed decor, attractions, food and entertainment for you to enjoy!  At Disneyland Park, highlights include Haunted Mansion Holiday, A Christmas Fantasy Parade, and the “Believe...In Holiday Magic” Fireworks Spectacular. After the fireworks, snow falls in the skies above “it’s a small world” Holiday in Fantasyland, over portions of Main Street, U.S.A., and near the Rivers of America as a seasonal treat! At Disney California Adventure Park, you’ll want to experience Disney Festival of Holidays and the special holiday decor and attractions in Cars Land. It’s going to be a very different experience than visiting in the summertime, and I think you’re going to love it!

    The weather in Anaheim in December is generally mild, with temperatures in the high 60s to low 70s during the day and in the high 40s overnight. Rain is more likely in December through February, so be on the lookout for any showers in the forecast. Afternoons can get warm while evenings are much cooler, so it is best to dress in layers and bring a jacket for the more brisk evenings after sundown.

    I hope this helps you plan and that you have a wonderfully pixie-dusted vacation, Autumn. Please visit us again with any other planning questions you can dream of! 

    Wishing you magic,
