ANAHEIM, Calif. (September 1, 2021) – Magic is here with Holidays at the Disneyland Resort,
and this year the merry making and fun festivities will run from Nov. 12, 2021, through Jan. 9,
2022. Guests will enjoy a distinctly Disney holiday experience with beloved traditions that
include the breathtaking Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade, and
magical snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Park. At Disney California Adventure
Park, guests will enjoy a heartwarming celebration that brings the holiday season to life with
Disney Festival of Holidays, “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” Street Party and the merry motor-themed
holiday décor on Route 66 in Cars Land.
Throughout the parks, guests will see Santa and Disney characters turned out in their holiday
best, enjoy seasonal sweet treats at food and beverage locations, and shop at favorite Disney
boutiques for memorable gifts for everyone on their lists.
The Disneyland Resort holiday celebration extends to Downtown Disney District and Hotels of
the Disneyland Resort with traditional décor and festive entertainment adding to the merriment.
At Disneyland Park
Guests entering Disneyland will be greeted by a magnificent 60-foot-tall Christmas tree on
Main Street, U.S.A., decorated with nearly 1,800 ornaments. The classic tree is an iconic
symbol of Holidays at Disneyland Resort, as well as an ideal location for holiday photos. At the
entrance to Fantasyland, the holiday magic will shine brightly each evening when Sleeping
Beauty’s Winter Castle begins to sparkle with light and music fills the air illuminating the night
in an enchanted wintertime spectacle. Several times a day, guests will again see “A Christmas
Fantasy” Parade and some favorite Disney characters and princesses throughout the park,
dressed in their seasonal finest with a few surprises this year.
As their magical day comes to an end, guests will find the perfect finishing touches to their
holiday memories with a magical “snowfall” along with colorful projections on Main Street
U.S.A., and the façade of “it’s a small world” during the “Believe in Holiday Magic” fireworks
spectacular. The heartwarming finale is a “kiss goodnight” moment from several beloved
characters, dressed in their pajamas and waving goodbye from the balcony of the Disneyland
Railroad Train Station in Town Square.
Additionally, seasonal transformations will once again resonate holiday cheer at “it’s a small
world” Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday.
At Disney California Adventure Park
Guests at Disney California Adventure Park will create new memories during Disney Festival
of Holidays as they discover the sights, sounds and tastes of a diverse season of celebrations,
including Christmas/Navidad, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Three Kings Day.
The festivities include live entertainment, shopping for themed merchandise and eight food marketplaces
where guests will sip and savor culinary delights. A team of Disney chefs drew on inspiration
from their own unique stories to handcraft some of the festive foods on the marketplace menus.
The celebration continues with “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” as Disney characters host a fun street
party featuring Mexican folklórico dancers and Mariachis, Brazilian samba dancers and
percussionists, giant mojiganga puppets and Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in their fiesta
In the Paradise Gardens area of the park, guests will enjoy festively themed food and
beverages plus live music and performers starting Nov. 12, and later in the Holiday season, the
debut of newly-featured Mirabel from the Walt Disney Animation Studios upcoming film
“Encanto.” At Pacific Wharf, guests will find holiday-themed menus with special food and drink
to be savored while listening to live musical entertainment. Here as well, younger guests will
discover craft stations and cookie decorating kits to add to their holiday fun.
The four-wheeled residents of Radiator Springs will be pulling out all the stops with their holiday
décor in Cars Land. The yuletide spirit will shift into high gear beginning with a snow-covered
billboard at the land’s entrance and stretching all the way to the hubcap-studded tree decorating
the front of the courthouse. Guests will enjoy a plethora of cleverly themed automotive
ornamentation all along Route 66 where two attractions will rely on a little festive magic to
transform into Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl and Mater’s Jingle Jamboree.
Guests of all ages will be delighted to see Santa Claus in his rustic home at the Redwood
Creek Challenge Trail. Guests may share their holiday wishes with the jolly fellow and take
souvenir pictures in this scenic location. Adding to the merriment, Mickey Mouse and pals
celebrate the season with a joyful party and dance along to the magical rhythms of the Holiday
Toy Drummers several times daily.
