Experience the Magic of the 2018 Holiday Season with Your Guide to Entertainment at Disneyland Park

Are you ready for the holidays at Disneyland? The festivities kicked off today and we are so excited to share them with you! Here is your complete guide to entertainment offerings at Disneyland Park this year!

A Christmas Fantasy Parade

Get ready to see how all of your favorite Disney characters are spending the holidays! From Mickey and Minnie to Santa himself, this parade has it all! Watch the parade wind down Main Street as the spirit of the season makes your dreams come true! This parade makes magic at 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. most nights of the season.

The Dapper Dans

During the merriest time of year at Disneyland, the Dapper Dans can be found around Main Street, USA singing some favorite holiday tunes. It is so fun to listen to them bring to life so many of my favorite Christmas songs! They generally can be found singing at the following times:

“Believe… In Holiday Magic” Fireworks Spectacular

Feel the childlike wonder of the holidays as Sleeping Beauty Castle twinkles with magical lights. The spectacular features stories and songs that will transport you back “home for the holidays.” Looking for a little extra magic? If you’re watching the show from Main Street, USA, it’s a small world or even Rivers of America, you can experience a White Christmas as snow falls! This magical event happens at 9:30 p.m. most nights until January 6.

“it’s a small world” Holiday Lighting

One of my personal favorites of holiday time at Disneyland, it’s a small world joins in on the fun! The facade to the attraction dances and lights up to a fun holiday soundtrack. The grand ending always leaves the crowd cheering in wonder! I could sit and watch this for hours. Catch this fun little moment at

Wintertime Enchantment at Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle

Ever wanted to see the castle transform? This fun little show lets you see Sleeping Beauty Castle transform in front of your very eyes! From the icicles lighting up to the snow falling on Main Street, this show lets the entire family experience the magic and merriment of the season! Catch this moment at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. at Disneyland Park!

All of these shows celebrate the joy of winter but remember that with winter can come rough weather. These shows are subject to change according to inclement weather that could make the shows difficult to enjoy.
