If you have never been to the parks during this magical time of year and are planning to visit, you are in for a treat! It is a feast for the eyes and a joy for all the senses. For example: The entire Resort transforms into a holiday wonderland, including the 3 Disney hotels and Downtown Disney too. Almost no corner is left unadorned in holiday splendor. The enchanting Winter Castle glows brightly after dark. The dazzling It's a Small World Holiday invites you to celebrate the holiday season around the world, while the mesmerizing colors of the facade take your breath away at night. The aromas of peppermint and gingerbread fill the air. Familiar Yuletide songs change style from land to land, so you may hear a jazz-inspired version of "Jingle Bells" in New Orleans Square, a Western-influenced "Deck the Halls" in Frontierland, a calypso-themed "Winter Wonderland" in Adventureland...and you may just hear a few famous characters offering their own unique take on the seasonal classics in ToonTown. Santa holds court in at least 4 locations around Disneyland Resort (sometimes 5!). The Reindeer Round-Up houses several of Santa's flying friends. Special seasonal treats are both whimsical and delicious. The popular Mickey Snowman popcorn buckets can be found in many stores. Gingerbread cookies wearing familiar 'ears' can be found throughout the confectioneries and bake shops. Dickens carolers stroll through the hotels and sing for the guests. Adults and children alike smile and marvel as snow falls on Main Street. As for entertainment, the awe-inspiring "Believe...In Holiday Magic" fireworks are sure to bring a tear to your eye when the show culminates in a light dusting of 'snow.' "A Christmas Fantasy Parade," a longstanding tradition at Disneyland, is a joyous spectacle to behold. On a chilly Winter night, be sure to bundle up next to your loved ones with some cocoa and enjoy this magical offering. Sounds delightful, right? So what are you waiting for? Let's start planning together!
