This celebration is the grand finale of “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” which was a celebration inspired by the Latino culture and was filled with holiday traditions, food, and music.
Three Kings Day – also known as Dia de los Reyes Magos – is celebrated by the people of Spain, Mexico, Central America, and other nations. The holiday commemorates the day the three kings followed the star to Bethlehem bearing the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Guests at Disney California Adventure can take photos with sculptures of the Three Kings and enjoy the traditional treat called Rosca de Reyes.
The Three Kings Day celebration takes place in the Paradise Garden area, which is where the statues of the Three Kings will be displayed. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Goofy will be appearing in the same area dressed in their fiesta costumes, and they’ll be joined by The Three Caballeros.
During the Three Kings Day celebration on January 3-6, the “Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party” will be performed six times daily, featuring floats, flag bearers, Mexican folklorico dancers, samba dancers and drummers, and “Mojiganga” puppets.
Dining locations in Paradise Gardens will also be serving Mexican food options in honor of the holidays including pozole (hearty stew), chicken mole drumettes, pescado Veracruzano, champurrado (Mexican-style hot chocolate), sweet tamales, torta al pastor, buñuelos and choco flan.
