From November 14, 2011 to January 8, 2012, the holiday season transforms the entire Disneyland Resort into a winter wonderland. Hundreds of thousands of lights brighten the night, fireworks burst to the sounds of the season and snow falls in Southern California! Special attractions, restaurants and stores abound with warmth and jolly spirits.
Gleaming ornaments and unforgettable moments lie in the traditions of Disneyland Resort. Meeting Santa and Mrs. Claus (my personal favorite), sharing breathtaking fireworks (the most beautiful firework show around) and visiting Sleeping Beauty's crystallized ice castle are just a few of the seasonal events that keep amazing visitors year after year.
A Christmas Fantasy Parade
Including trumpeting toy soldiers, romping reindeer and skating snowflakes, this parade has become a magnificent tradition. Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and other Disney Characters sport their most festive apparel for this extravaganza that welcomes Santa Claus to Main Street, U.S.A. It is one of the best parades Disney puts on. Yes, they put on a holiday parade every year. No, it isn't the same one though. They have a new parade every holiday that is for sure to keep you coming back every holiday season.
Main Street U.S.A. Christmas Tree
Main Street U.S.A. is the overture and the encore for a visit to Disneyland Park. Its majestic tree shines with more than 70,000 lights and has over 2,000 ornaments! Walk down Main Street decked with snow and holiday decor and pick up some handmade candy, freshly created by expert confectioners. The caramel apples are the best!
Santa's Reindeer Round-Up
During Holidays at the Disneyland Resort, create cowboy-inspired gifts and join in sing-a-longs in Frontierland. Mrs. Claus, Santa and real reindeer invite Guests to the Holiday Ho-Ho-Ho Hoedown. Santa and Mrs. Claus are a must see in Disneyland (they are there before and after Xmas...makes you kind of wonder, huh?)
