UPDATE: Earlier tonight we kicked-off the holidays at Disneyland Resort when Adela and Mickey Mouse flipped the switch and lit “it’s a small world” Holiday for the first night of the season. Before the event, Adela and her family enjoyed being honorary Grand Marshals of “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade, experienced park attractions and took pictures with famous Disney characters.
Today is the first day of the holidays at the Disneyland Resort, and this year we teamed up with Sylvania and CHOC Children’s to take the magic of the holiday season from the Resort to the home of one special little girl and her family. Adela Jauregui, 8, a patient at CHOC Children’s, and her family watched as their home lit up with more than 6,200 LED lights and Disney-themed décor. By the looks on their faces, the joy of the holidays couldn’t come early enough!
Adela and her family, who reside in Anaheim, Calif., will join Mickey Mouse tonight for the initial lighting of “it’s a small world” Holiday in a fun ceremony at Disneyland park. This special time of year also means all your holiday favorites are back including “Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle,” “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade and the “Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks show. Check back later today to see pictures from tonight’s event.
