2018 Holidays at the Disneyland Resort Begin November 9

The Disneyland Resort has announced that this year’s holiday celebrations will begin November 9, 2018 and continue until January 6, 2019.

At Disneyland Park, A Christmas Fantasy Parade will return, along with the Believe…in Holiday Magic fireworks. As always, Sleeping Beauty Castle will be decorated with dazzling icicles.

The popular festive overlay, it’s a small world holiday, will be back and Haunted Mansion Holiday will continue its Halloween holiday magic.

There is still no word on if the Jingle Cruise will return after being absent in 2017.


At Disney California Adventure, Festival of Holidays, with its tour around the world in both entertainment and food, will head back into the Paradise Gardens Park area. Look for the Festive Foods Marketplace, ¡Viva Navidad!, and more!

In Cars Land, the residents of Radiator Springs will once again spread holiday cheer, with Mater’s Jingle Jamboree and Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl sharing their own Christmas carols.

With unexpected construction happening in Paradise Bay, it’s unclear if World of Color-Season of Light will be presented this year.


The holiday season at the Disneyland Resort will continue through Three Kings’ Day on January 6th!
