Holidays At The Disneyland Resort

Disneyland is magical the whole year through, but there is an extra special touch of pixie dust at Christmastime. You can experience the most magical time of the year with celebrations throughout both parks from November 2023 - January 8, 2024. It's something you have to feel to truly experience. The moment you step into the park you get swept up in it, from the treats, to the characters, to the parades, and evening fireworks with a special sprinkling of snow on Main Street, U.S.A.

You don't want to miss the "It's a Small World" Holiday season. Not only will you hear the classic "It's a Small World (After All)" song, but also some heartwarming, traditional holiday songs. Plus, you will notice the holiday decor adorning the children of the world and even some updated animatronics by adding two new dolls in wheelchairs. This is a fantastic addition and a great way to continue inclusion in the parks!

But the best part is as the sun starts to go down you will see the attraction's facade light up with the most beautiful glow thanks to the twinkling Christmas lights. Then every 30 minutes throughout the night you can watch a stunning Christmas projection show animate the iconic facade.

The Christmas Fantasy Parade is like no other! It's a must-see for any Disney fan. Santa Claus himself makes an appearance, but we all love seeing the Toy Soldiers and Santa's reindeer! The parade is around 40 minutes long and seats will go quickly. Make sure to get there early to grab a good seat! There happens to be a couple of great viewing spots near "It's a Small World" and the Matterhorn Bobsleds.

Taking center stage at Disneyland is Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle! Sleeping Beauty's Castle is decorated with icicles, twinkling lights, and wreaths. It's one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen!

Make sure to plan early if you want to visit Disney at Christmastime, or be flexible with your dates for a last-minute trip! Contact me for your magical quote today. As always, my services are complementary when booking a vacation package through me.

Mickey's Toontown is Reopening on March 8, 2023!

As many of you may know Mickey's Toontown in Disneyland has been closed for refurbishment since March of 2022, but just one year later, it's ready to reopen! We have all been anxiously awaiting the opening of Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway (scheduled to open on January 27, 2023, before the rest of the land), but many are thrilled to know that Roger Rabbit Cartoon Spin will be returning! Along with Mickey's House and Minnie's House! Disney even confirmed that Mickey and Minnie meet and greets will also be returning!

Other attractions will be reimagined in new and exciting ways, Gadget's Go Coaster will now be Chip 'n' Dale's GADGET coaster, a one-of-a-kind, fun-sized coaster for the town’s tiniest citizens.” Now inside Goofy’s House, guests will find a “fun, interactive candy-making contraption that only Goofy could imagine,” while Donald’s Boat will feature portholes that will allow guests to interact with Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby. 

Contact me to get you prepped for this reopening! It will be crowded, but with my tips and tricks, you will still have a magical time!

Disneyland After Dark Events Returning to Disneyland in 2023!

Disneyland is starting the year off with a magical night of love in the air! The best thing about this is that you will have more than one opportunity to attend the Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts' Nite, as it's available for a few different evenings. You can purchase tickets for January 31st, and on February: 2, 5, 7, 9, 14, and 16th. Ticket sales start today, December 12, for Magic Key holders and general admission tickets go on sale December 14th. Tickets will range in price from $129-$159 depending on the date you choose. Please note that parking fees are NOT included in this price.

Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts Nite will have a special fireworks show, themed food, a Royal Ball hosted by Aladdin & Jasmine, moonlit cruise on the Mark Twain Riverboat, themed food, fun photo ops with romantic backgrounds, plus more! Don't forget your ticket will also include unlimited digital downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos taken during the party.

The best part is you'll get admission into Disneyland with no park reservation required starting at 6pm. However, the special event begins at 9pm and goes until 1am! I LOVE doing a special event and getting the benefit of the extra hours!

Disneyland After Dark: Princess Nite will be available to attend on two select nights, March 7th and March 9th, 2023. This is an all new and first-ever event! Ticket sales are the same as above. Available for purchase on December 12th for Magic Key holders and available for general admission purchase on December 14th. 

Disneyland After Dark: Princess Nite will also offer themed entertainment like a musical concert, a royal welcome at the Disneyland Train Station, specialty food, and themed photo ops. Just like above this event will also allow you to get into the party starting at 6pm without a park reservation.

With these two special events starting off the new calendar year, I'm hopeful to see more return to the Disneyland parks! This year is looking to be spectacular with special offerings for Disney100 Celebration and Mickey's Toontown reopening with the all new Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway ride debut at Disneyland. Can't wait to see what is announced next!

If you're looking to add a magical vacation to your life I'm your gal! Disney is my happy place and I genuinely love helping others have their best time! As always my services are complementary when booking a package through me.
