I love Christmas. You know what else I love? Christmas at Disneyland! This year the holidays at Disneyland are completely filled with new experiences mixed with the classics. So I’m giving you a handy guide to see what you can do! Here are some of the highlights of the season.
World of Color
Over at California Adventure, we are getting a brand new World of Color for the holidays! Which means, less Frozen! Sorry Frozen fans, there is just way too much of it in the parks. The new show called, World of Color: Seasons of Light, will be about Mickey getting ready for the holidays. It’s going to have appearances from Toy Story, Lady and the Tramp, Lilo and Stitch, even Inside Out. I can guarantee that this will be one of the most popular showings.
Paint the Night
The greatest return ever. Paint the Night is returning for the holidays only on select days (mostly weekends) and this is my favorite part of it all. One of my favorite Disney memories happened during a rainy December night watching Paint the Night. The lights mixed with the Christmas decorations make it such an amazing experience to watch. This is the only time to watch it before it goes on break again!
The snowy castle is back! Since the 60th anniversary was still going on last year, we only got the wreath but now Sleeping Beauty Castle has snow again. Of course, one of the most memorable things is the big Christmas tree that welcomes you to the park. The decorations around the park are always amazing.
Food, Food, Food
One of the most exciting things is the amount of food this season brings and there are a ton of new offerings. Something new this year is over at California Adventure, which is like a mini Food and Wine, called Festival of Holidays. It will feature festive foods from various cultures, plus it will debut Elena of Avalor to Disneyland. One of my favorite offerings is the Abuelita hot chocolate, and of course, the famous handmade candy canes will be back again.
