Seasonal splendor is all around! Come see our theme parks, Downtown Disney District and Resort hotels dressed up and lit up in exquisite displays.
Discover sensational sights at every turn—like a gleaming winter castle and a “world” that lights up with joy.
In this merriest of seasons, Disneyland Park is adorned in winter finery. Stroll Main Street, U.S.A. to find the storefronts, lampposts and rooftops wrapped in festive wreaths and garland. Look upon our towering tree and prepare to be astonished as Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle shimmers to life at nightfall—with snow-capped turrets and glistening icicles—thanks to the dreamlike glow of ethereal lighting effects. Later, during the "Believe… in Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular, the castle undergoes even more stunning transformations, culminating in a magical snowfall over locations throughout the park.
We’ve decked the halls from New Orleans Square to Mickey’s Toontown, from Frontierland to Critter Country to Fantasy Faire, so you’ll find festive touches wherever you go.
And while you’re here, be sure to experience a special yuletide treat: the elaborate illumination display—repeated throughout each evening—of “it’s a small world” Holiday. Featuring the iconic façade, a kaleidoscope of over 50,000 lights and projections of enchanting video imagery, it’s a jaw-dropping delight for all ages.
Be part of a heartwarming tree-lighting tradition and motor over to see Cars Land “geared up” for the holidays.
With the Disney Festival of Holidays in full swing, the sights of the season are all around. Each of our lands is celebrating in its own way, with distinctive displays at Grizzly Peak, a bug’s land, Hollywood Land, Pacific Wharf and Paradise Pier. The residents of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street are extending an extra special welcome!
The holiday hosts of Radiator Springs have been applying all their horsepower to upgrade their establishments for the holiday season. No parts have been spared during this custom motorcar makeover!
Or, take a stroll along Buena Vista Street and step back in time. During the holidays, this bustling boulevard is transformed into a nostalgic winter wonderland, with seasonal delights and friendly folk right out of 1930s Hollywood. From the wreath adorning Carthay Circle to our magnificent 50-foot tree, festive sights surround you. And for an extra special experience, join us each evening from November 10 to December 30 at 4:55 PM to share the old-fashioned charm and uplifting cheer of the Buena Vista Street Holiday Tree Lighting.
Delight to joyous sights everywhere as the happiest place on Earth celebrates the most wonderful time of year.
With incredible shopping, dining and entertainment, the Downtown Disney District is a must-visit destination any time of year. But at the holidays, festively trimmed trees, twinkling lights and enchanting shop windows are an experience all in themselves.
If you’re staying with Disney, you’ll find your holiday home-away-from-home bedecked with seasonal flair. Whether you’re a Guest of The Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa or Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, you’ll be welcomed with a breathtaking lobby display sure to put you in the spirit. At the center of it all, each Resort hotel features a unique holiday tree decorated with whimsical flourishes, traditional trimmings and dashes of pure Disney magic.
The Hugest Hotel Sweet You’ve Ever Seen!
There’s a big treat waiting for you at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa—but no tasting allowed! Throughout the season, stop by the lobby to marvel at a giant gingerbread replica of the hotel itself. Standing 7.5 delicious feet tall and 12 feet wide, this delightfully detailed structure was created from over 500 pounds of gingerbread and 60 gallons of frosting and icing. It took a 25-member team of talented artists, engineers and bakers to construct this impressive confection.
Share the joy and beauty of the season in this heartwarming celebration, daily at 4:55 PM—from November 10 to December 30.
Marvel at the Castle—stunningly decorated for the holidays with gleaming lights and glimmering garland.
Celebrate the season with special entertainment, food and festivities all around the Resort—from November 10, 2017 through January 7, 2018.
