The holidays will continue at Disneyland Resort through Sunday, Jan. 8, which will give us the opportunity to celebrate Three Kings Day, also known as Día de los Reyes Magos, for the first time ever, on January 6-8! Special décor and entertainment will showcase Western and Mexican heritage, and food and children’s activities will be themed to the holiday.
Three Kings Day is celebrated in many Latin American countries as part of the Christmas story. It commemorates the day the three kings (the magi or “wise men”) followed the star to Bethlehem and presented their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
The Three Kings Day celebration at Disneyland park will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Zocalo Park (which is Spanish for “Town Square”) in Frontierland. Walt Disney envisioned Frontierland as a showcase for America’s Western and Mexican heritage, and this celebration will continue that vision.
Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will appear in their Fiesta costumes and other characters will join them, including the Three Caballeros: Donald Duck, Jose Carioca and Panchito! Entertainment highlights will include folklorico dance along with musical performances by the Grammy-winning Mariachi Divas. Children will have the opportunity to participate in face painting, coloring, crown decorating and other activities.
Be sure to bring your family and celebrate Three Kings Day with us here at Disneyland park!
