    WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME to the
    Disneyland at Christmas Time (and Holiday Season)
    Information & Photo Superthread - Part 2!!!




    Please also see Part 1 of the Superthread - Disney at Christmas - for lots of fantastic photos and information on the "most wonderful time of the year"!

    We have a wonderful panel of experts who are here to answer questions, dispense valuable holiday advice, information, tips, insight and, most importantly, share PHOTOS!!

    We discuss anything and everything pertaining to Christmas Time (as well as the entire holiday season) at the Disneyland Resort - holiday treats, holiday merchandise, holiday attractions, holiday decorations, crowds, planning, etc. *We cover the entire season from when it begins in early November to when it ends in early January.*

    For your convenience, below you will find a handy Table of Contents in Post #2, which will guide you to helpful information as well as the many beautiful photos provided by our DIS'ers in different holiday categories, i.e., food, merchandise, It's a Small World Holiday, specific decorations in different lands and pretty much any other holiday-related category you can think of!

    In Post #3, you will find special holiday information (with any breaking news that comes in as we get it) and links to Holiday threads such as Check-In threads, Candy Cane Information, etc.

    This thread will be a celebration of all things merry and bright at the Disneyland Resort during its Christmas season. 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!

    Holidays at Disneyland Resort -
    Frequently Asked Questions



    Q: When does the holiday season begin and end at the Disneyland Resort?
    A: In 2011, the season began on a Monday in November. That will again be the case in 2012. Prior to that, typically, the official start of the holiday season began on either the Friday before Thanksgiving or 2 Fridays before Thanksgiving. The season's final day is usually the first Sunday in January. If New Year's Day falls on a Sunday, the last day of the season will likely be one week from that day. Decorations and overlays begin to come down the day after the season ends. Of course, there can be adjustments and alterations in the schedule depending on which dates fall on which days of the week.

    This year, the holiday season will begin on Monday, November 12, 2012, and extend through Sunday, January 6, 2013.


    Q: What are the usual park hours during the holiday season?


    Q: Is there a Christmas party held at Disneyland resort?
    A: Thus far, there are no Christmas parties (such as the equivalent of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World) held at DLR, although there are rumors swirling about the possibility of a party based on the popularity of the yearly Halloween parties. This party - if it comes to fruition - could happen as early as 2013.


    Q: When does the Candlelight Processional take place?
    A: Traditionally, the Candlelight Processional has taken place on the first Saturday and Sunday in December, in Disneyland. However, this year - 2012 - it will take place over 20 nights in December, from December 1 - 20. There have been rumors that the CP may move into California Adventure in the future. If this happens, the dates may change in some way, i.e., more dates added, different start dates, etc.


    Q: When is the least crowded time to visit Disneyland resort during the holiday season?
    A: Ahhh...the age-old question. The holiday season at DLR is extremely popular and is a busy season overall, from its start in November to its end in early January. It is, like summer, considered peak season. Attendance is up, hours are extended and entertainment is in full swing. The last few holiday seasons have broken records for attendance, with 2009 being the busiest holiday season at DLR in 10 years, and 2010 surpassing 2009, and 2011 surpassing 2010.

    The common belief is that November is less crowded than December. However, opening weekend of the season is always quite crowded, and many people have reported that the time frame/week immediately leading up to Thanksgiving weekend is extremely busy, while the parks apparently clear out substantially right after Thanksgiving weekend is over, when weary visitors head back to school and work.

    The earlier portion of December is less crowded than the second half of that month. But, the Candlelight Processional is widely reported to draw large crowds, and may folks choose to avoid those days/nights.

    After Thanksgiving weekend, the crowds lighten up considerably until approximately mid-December. From mid-December on through the remainder of the season, the crowds steadily and rapidly increase, usually reaching a fever pitch in the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Both Disneyland and California Adventure reached capacity between those holidays in 2010 and in 2011 (although DL itself has been known to reach capacity even before Christmas here and there), and on a couple of occasions DL actually had to stop selling tickets and letting people in the gates early in the day (before noon).

    So, based on reports from DIS'ers, facts, figures and patterns, it would seem that, thus far, the least crowded periods of the holiday season at DLR would be immediately after Thanksgiving weekend, and the first 2 weeks of December.


    Q: What is the weather like during the holiday season at DLR?
    A: First of all, see HydroGuy's informative thread about DLR weather:

    Detailed Weather Data for DLR

    November and December weather in Southern California can be varied and even unpredictable. Many of us who are longtime SoCal residents have witnessed very warm Autumns and Winters, where sometimes the temperatures can reach into the 90's. There have also been periods of torrential rain. Sometimes it may be 50 degrees at DLR in the daytime and in the 30's at night. Other times it's in the 70's in the daytime and in the 50's at night. I've personally been to DLR in both November and December when it's been very warm. And I've been to DLR in both of those months when its been very cold (30 degrees at night) and/or raining heavily.

    Chances are it will be fairly warm in November - meaning in the upper 70's at least, if not the low 80's, and cool in the evenings. December will most likely offer temperatures in the 60's or 70's in the daytime and in the 50's at night....but as stated above, it can be a very unpredictable month and it could get very cold or warm out of the blue! A wise tip from many of our seasoned holiday travellers is to dress in layers, so it will be easy to get comfortable during any unexpected shifts in temperature.

    We just got back from 5 days at Disneyland! We had such a great time. There is nothing like Disneyland at Christmas time!! The first night we got treats at the little bakery at the front of California. Both of my boys got a gingerbread man. They were so big! They had it for a snack 3 differant times and they still never finished them!:rotfl: Here is a picture (minus a few bites!)

    Very tough question. IMO, they're both very heavy crowd wise. Kudos to those who can get through it without biting someones head off.

    I wanted to share a photopass picture.

    Is there a compiled list anywhere, describing what holiday treats are available this year? I'm going to DL tomorrow and want to know where to go for something special!
