Holiday magic is making its return to the Disneyland Resort. On Tuesday, the park announced the return of fan-favorite holiday attractions, activities and new offerings.
Mickey, Minnie and other characters will also be dressed in their holiday best to help guests get into the spirit.
The Disney Festival of Holidays will take place at Disney’s California Adventures, allowing guests to experience Christmas, Navidad, Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa and Three Kings Day celebrations.
Musical performers Tina and The Sounds of Celebrations will make their Disney California Adventure debut. Guests can catch them performing classic holiday songs at the theme park. Other musical guests will also perform during the celebration.
Guests can also enjoy the “Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party,” which is making its return during the holiday season.
Parkgoers can also enjoy the nighttime spectacular “World of Color-Season of Light” and “Mickey’s Happy Holidays” at the theme park.
The “Mickey’s Happy Holidays” will be performed throughout the day.
Across the walkway at Disneyland, families can see “A Christmas Fantasy Parade” and “Believe… in Holiday Magic” fireworks show on select nights.
Santa will also be at the “Happiest Place on Earth.” Families can visit him at Critter Country in Disneyland, Redwood Creek Challenge Trail in Disney California Adventure park and Disneyland Resort hotels, the theme park said.
