I have worked with the Disneyland Resort to produce this video featuring the very best of the Disneyland Resort this holiday season, but don’t stop with the video, check out even more info below!
Each year, the Haunted Mansion and “it’s a small world” get special holiday overlays and this year is no exception. Haunted Mansion Holiday premieres in mid October each year and lasts through early January for the holiday season. In this attraction Jack Skellington and his friends from Halloween Town take over the Haunted Mansion and the attraction is completely made over to embody the mood, colors and theming from the movie. You can learn more about Haunted Mansion Holiday by clicking here, here, here and here.
“it’s a small world” Holiday, is a classic holiday transformation that embodies the beauty, harmony, joy and peace of the holiday season, and is my absolute favorite. Yes, I said it. I love “it’s a small world” Holiday. In fact, I’ve been known to ride it even when I’m not with my kids.
Special Events for the Entire Family
Jingle Jangle Jamboree is back for another year of fun with reindeer games, Billy Hill and the Hillbillies and much more back at Big Thunder Ranch at Disneyland during daytime hours. At night, families can “get down” with Alice, the Mad Hatter and all of the Wonderland gang at their Mad T Party holiday celebration in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure Park.
