It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Disneyland Resort, where we’re making the holiday season merry and bright, now through January 6, 2016. If you’re planning to join us during the jolliest time of the year, here are some highlights of our holiday entertainment you won’t want to miss!
Santa Claus – Winnie the Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood are welcoming Santa to Critter Country this year, where you’ll find him in a delightful new spot, ready to greet everyone on his list.
“A Christmas Fantasy” Parade – This wonderful daytime procession features more than 100 performers, including Mickey, Minnie, Santa and an array of beloved Disney characters celebrating the holiday season.
Jingle Cruise – A cargo of holiday gifts and decorations have been jettisoned over the jungles of Adventureland, resulting in fun-filled expeditions and a dose of holly jolly hilarity on the classic Jungle Cruise attraction.
“it’s a small world” Holiday – This worldwide celebration of the season brings holiday music, costumes and décor to “The Happiest Cruise That Ever Sailed,” and at night, animated projections and more than 300,000 twinkling LED lights adorn the attraction’s façade with joy and wonder.
“Olaf’s Snow Fest” – Step inside Stage 17 in Hollywood Land for winter fun in the kingdom of Arendelle. There’s a giant play area with real snow, a zippy snow slide, live music from the Frolicking Fjords and the Tubadors and, of course, Olaf himself. Do you wanna build a snowman? Or meet one? This is the place!
“Disney ¡Viva Navidad!“ – This festive celebration of Latino culture and holiday traditions features music, dancing, delicious food, favorite Disney characters and the lively “Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party.”
“World of Color – Winter Dreams” – Paradise Bay at Disney California Adventure park sparkles to life at night with not one, but two splendid versions of the “World of Color” spectacular. For the holiday season, “World of Color – Winter Dreams” includes classic wintertime scenes from beloved stories such as “Bambi,” “Toy Story” and “Frozen.” Each night, you can also enjoy “World of Color – Celebrate!” Part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, this version of the show is a colorful, surprise-filled tribute to Walt Disney and his dreams of Disneyland.
Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration – For 2015, the entire holiday season comes with a shimmering sprinkle of Diamond Celebration pixie dust, as our stunning 60th celebration continues, giving you even more chances to marvel at the dazzling “Paint the Night” Parade and the immersive new fireworks spectacular, “Disneyland Forever.”
Disney FASTPASS: Distribution for Disney FASTPASS for both “World of Color” shows will take place in the current distribution location near Grizzly River Run. Guests will join one queue and indicate their preferred show and time to the cast member at the front of the queue. The cast member will then direct you to the correct Disney FASTPASS machine. If you would like to attend more than one show, you must re-enter the queue to obtain Disney FASTPASS for that show time.
Dining Packages: If you choose to enjoy one of our “World of Color” dining packages, please indicate your preferred show when you make your reservation by calling (714) 781-DINE. Please be sure to select a meal time that is at least two hours before your preferred show time.

The Rabbit Hole has opened and the House of Cards is stacked for a funderful Diamond Mad T Party in honor of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. And have you seen some of the surprises our mischievous hosts Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum brought back from inside the magical Disney vault?
The party continues through 1 a.m. here in Hollywood Land, with the Mad T Party Band and Hottest Deck in Town dance crew. That won’t be the end, though. The White Rabbit DJ will keep spinning splendiferous tunes all the way to 5 a.m.
Oh, and have you caught a showing of the all-new “World of Color – Celebrate!” yet? Mickey Mouse and Neil Patrick Harris will be gracing the waters of Paradise Bay once more tonight – at 3 a.m. – for a special, late-night showing.
