Disneyland Christmas Trip Report

We visited Disneyland Resort in December to enjoy the Christmas season, when both Disney California and Disneyland get a little merrier. This report features photos of both parks decked out for the holidays (including Cars Land Christmas photos!), plus commentary and photos of Haunted Mansion Holiday, ‘it’s a small world’ holiday, World of Color – Winter Dreams, Believe… In Holiday Magic Fireworks, Viva Navidad!, Jingle Cruise, Candlelight Processional (narrated by Kurt Russell), and more!

Although it was only a quick, weekend trip, we covered a lot of ground and ate at a variety of restaurants, including Cafe Orleans, Big Thunder BBQ, Plaza Inn, and Paradise Garden Grill. You can expect photos from these restaurants (and of other Christmas snacks we ate along the way), plus a variety of random stuff.

If you’re heading to Disneyland Resort for the holidays, this trip report should help you plan your trip. If you’re not visiting, it should give you a nice taste of the holidays.

We would greatly appreciate it if you’d share any trip report posts that you like on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc., via the social media buttons on each installment to help spread the word about them. We also love when readers leave comments on the trip reports, so if you have any thoughts on an installment, please share them. Comments let us know people out there are reading and enjoying the reports!
