Behold the seasonal splendor on display in our parks, Downtown Disney District and Resort hotels—returning November 9, 2018!
Discover sensational sights at every turn—like a glistening winter castle and enchanted lands that sparkle with joy.
Later this year, Disneyland Park will once again deck its halls in winter finery for the holiday season. Walk along Main Street, U.S.A. to find storefronts, lampposts and rooftops wrapped in wreaths and garland. Gaze upon our towering tree and witness the shimmer of Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle at nightfall—ethereal lighting effects and a dash of pixie dust create the snow-capped turrets and glistening icicles that shine so bright.
Our iconic castle undergoes an even more stunning transformation during the "Believe… in Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular, a pyrotechnical spectacle that culminates in an enchanted snowfall over various park locations. Plus, you’ll find festive touches wherever you go—from New Orleans Square and Frontierland to Mickey’s Toontown, Critter Country and Fantasy Faire.
Be sure to make time for our special yuletide treat—the elaborate illumination of “it’s a small world” Holiday each evening. This kaleidoscope of 50,000-plus lights and video projections fill the classic façade with holiday majesty and awe. It’s a jaw-dropping delight for kids of all ages!
Experience a heartwarming tree-lighting tradition and motor over to see Cars Land “geared up” for the holidays!
Each of our lands celebrates in its own way, with distinctive displays at Grizzly Peak, a bug’s land, Hollywood Land, Pacific Wharf and Paradise Gardens Park. The residents of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street are also extending an extra special holiday welcome!
Your Radiator Springs hosts have applied every ounce of horsepower to upgrade their establishments for a holly, jolly holiday. No parts will be spared during this custom motorcar makeover!
Take a stroll along Buena Vista Street and step back in time. Throughout the holidays, this bustling boulevard transforms into a nostalgic winter wonderland filled with seasonal delights, festive sights and friendly folk straight out of 1930s Hollywood—from the Carthay Circle wreath to our magnificent 50-foot tree.
And what better way is there to enjoy the holiday décor then by sampling the tasty myriads of merry holiday delights during the Disney Festival of Holidays? Savor the tastes and sights with the ones you love!

The Most AmazingHotel Sweet You’ve Ever Seen!
There’s a delectable treat waiting for Guests 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 by 12 feet wide, this delightfully detailed structure was created from over 500 pounds of gingerbread as well as 60 gallons of frosting and icing. It took 25 talented artists, engineers and bakers to construct this impressive confection!
