Storybook Land Canal Boats at Disneyland park is full of tiny treasures – if you blink you might just miss one. The cruise lasts 6 minutes; however, here you can take a “mini” tour highlighting some of the attraction’s delightful details.

I was blown away by the new land of Arendelle. What’s your favorite scene?

posted on November 17th, 2014 by Shannon Swanson, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort


If you happened to see the video I posted back in September showing the Haunted Mansion Holiday magical makeover, you may recognize some of the talented “elves” in this video. Once again, I’ve asked the Disneyland Resort Entertainment team to show me their favorite holiday enhancements; only this time they are creating “it’s a small world” Holiday at Disneyland park.

My favorite addition to “it’s a small world” Holiday has to be the clock show, which debuted last year. What’s yours?

Every August, the Disneyland Resort Entertainment team begins helping Jack Skellington take over the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland park to create Haunted Mansion Holiday.
