The season kicks off November 13 with holiday celebrations, entertainment, decorations, and special food and beverage items. Disneyland’s winter holiday season runs through January 6, 2015 – Three Kings Day.
A highlight of the season is the World of Color – Winter Dreams hosted by Olaf the snowman. The holiday version of this fan favorite nighttime spectacle includes winter scenes from Bambi, Fantasia, Toy Story, and Frozen.
In Disneyland guests can enjoy A Christmas Fantasy parade every day featuring Disney characters and a special appearance by Santa Claus. Through December 24 Santa will also be greeting guests at Big Thunder Ranch and in Disney California Adventure at Elias & Co on Buena Vista Street.
The Disney ¡Viva Navidad! celebration also returns to Disney California Adventure this year.
And in Disneyland Park it’s a small world will be transformed into ‘it’s a small world Holiday’ and the Haunted Mansion becomes the Haunted Mansion Holiday. Sleeping Beauty’s castle will be transformed nightly into Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle.
In addition to the transformation of attractions, both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will be transformed thanks to Christmas trees, wreaths, and even holiday décor in Cars Land, Paradise Pier, and on Buena Vista Street.
Downtown Disney is home once again to Olaf’s Frozen Ice Rink in the Downtown Disney Winter Village.
