Holidays at Disneyland 2017

I think just about everyone can agree that spending the holidays at Disneyland is a special time.

With such a special place, how could it not be?!

People plan for this trip all year long and, trust me, the planning is worth it.

As I’m currently packing and getting ready to head to Disneyland myself for the last runDisney event of the year, I’m in a “holidays at the Disneyland resort” frame of mind.

And it looks like I show up just in time to enjoy it all!

Disneyland is undergoing it’s holiday transformation right now, with a kick-off date of November 10th.

A new twist to this celebration presents the popular Festive Foods Marketplace with a mix of holiday comfort dishes that bridge many diverse cultures and family traditions.

Stops to consider: beef corn tamale a la plancha with spicy rojo sauce, braised lamb cheeks with Mediterranean cauliflower, sweet
potato pie and fruit and nut rugelach.

My stomach is growling already!

World of Color – Season of Light brings the spirit of the holidays to the favorite nighttime water spectacular, with its 1,200 powerful fountains shooting water as high as 200 feet to help tell the story.

The show’s musical soundtrack features some well-known musical artists performing popular holiday tunes.

HOLIDAYS AT THE DISNEYLAND RESORT (ANAHEIM, Calif.) – The Disneyland Resort is a magical place for creating holiday memories with family and friends. Holidays at the Disneyland Resort, Nov. 10, 2017 through Jan.7, 2018, features seasonal offerings that include “Festival of Holidays” and “World of Color–Season of Light,” plus guest favorites “it’s a small world” Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday. Glistening Christmas trees and beautiful seasonal décor adorn the entire Disneyland Resort, and “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade is performed daily at Disneyland park.

This is a Disney California Adventure first and if it’s as well done as Haul-O-Ween was, I expect it will be just darling all around.

Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters becomes Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree becomes Mater’s Jingle Jamboree.

Mater and Luigi add even more cheer to the seasonal fun by singing new holiday tunes for the occasion.

I loved the Halloween version of the land and can’t wait to experience a Cars Land decked out for Christmas too!

Disneyland during the holidays can be one of the best times to visit, but it can also come with some challenges.
