Get out those mittens and sweaters as Shanghai Disney Resort launches the festive “Disney Winter Frostival” with frosty fun for the whole family. You heard that right – all-new! New experiences, new characters, new food, new merchandise and more from Christmas through New Year’s Eve and the Spring Festival, wrapping on February 19, 2023.

Get into the holiday spirit with the “Disney Winter Magic Cavalcade” complete with brand-new floats, characters, costumes, performances and even a new song! There will be snowy vignettes with characters from “Frozen,” “The Incredibles,” “Zootopia,” “Beauty and the Beast” and more.

You won’t be able to stop smiling with the introduction of the Snowies, new holiday characters that you can see in the cavalcade, as well as sculptures and merchandise. Embark on the Wishing Star Park Adventure, where you can learn about migratory birds who live at the lake during winter months. And then be transported to a winter wonderland with the transformation of the Enchanted Storybook Castle and Gardens of Imagination, complete with ice statues!

The season brings us melt-in-your-mouth food offerings! CookieAnn Bakery Café brings the Christmas CookieAnn Cake and Christmas Mango Jelly White Chocolate Mousse Cake, and you will surely not want to miss the LinaBell-themed ice cream cones at IL Paperino! Feel like royalty while attending Christmas Afternoon Tea and Christmas Brunch in Royal Banquet Hall. The brand-new restaurant Donald’s Dine ‘n Delights will be open in Disneytown – this casual bistro will offer seasonal Western meals with Asian influence.   

Of course, there is no shortage of special holiday merchandise! Deck your tree with ornaments from the 2022 Mickey’s Winter Holiday Party Collection and adorn yourself with everything from Christmas socks and sweaters to a Marvel snow globe-shaped pin or the Holiday Pixar headband.

Whether you are popping corn to decorate your tree or devour it yourself, make sure to collect the LinaBell Gift Popcorn Bucket. There are also train-themed popcorn buckets and psst, if you buy multiple train-themed popcorn buckets, such as the Gelatoni Train Popcorn Bucket and the ShellieMay Train Popcorn Bucket, and connect them, you may just be in for a little surprise!

Keep warm with new character blankets and the 2022 Duffy and Friends Warm Holidays collection, while sipping your steaming beverage in seasonal style with the LinaBell Hot Beverage Sipper or the Holiday Pixar Mug. And of course, the plush! Some highlights include Holiday Pooh and the Santa-hat-wearing Holiday Stitch.

Holiday shoppers are set to have magical experiences as Disneytown Tree Trail and Disneytown Christmas Market are back! Be sure to catch Mickey’s Magical Tree Lighting Ceremony and take selfies with Santa Goofy at Mickey Avenue. You are sure to get into the swing of the season with the “Christmas Swing!” Show on Mickey Avenue.

And it does not end with Christmas! Just days after, ring in the new year with Disney characters in festive costumes and limited-time food and beverage offerings during “Ignite the New Year.”
