Exciting Changes Coming to this Disney Park Soon

With the holiday season around the corner, many exciting changes are coming to the Disney Parks, and soon!

It’s officially December! While the holiday season has been on at the Disney Parks—be that ones like Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom at  Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure at Disneyland Resort—for a while now, this is the month, it really kicks into high gear whether that’s because we’re all just a little more in the holiday spirit or because of Disney’s magical lineup for this month.

Many exciting things have been announced for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. Walt Disney World’s EPCOT saw a new holiday remix for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Disneyland Resort saw the return of a holiday fan-favorite. All this has had fans on the edge of their seats in anticipation of the last month of the year and all the festivities it would bring to Disneyland Resort. There’s truly nothing like enjoying strolling up and down Main Street, U.S.A., and taking in the sights of a Disneyland Christmas and experiencing the holiday magic. But it’s easy to miss something with so much happening.

Lucky for Disney fans, one Guest has them covered with a Disneyland Resort holiday guide. TikTok Juliet Nuzzo, @perfectingthemagic, shared a guide to everything that’s happening in Disneyland this December. Check it out:

Her list was as follows:

To start off with, the Candlelight Processional. This will be held on December 3 and 4, and per Disney, if you’d like to see the processional, you should arrive early to find good viewing spots. That’s just the beginning.

Disneyland’s hand-pulled candy canes will also be available starting early this month. Here’s when you can find them at both Disney Parks:

Disneyland Park: December 4, 6, 11, 13, 18, 20, 24

Disney California Adventure: December 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 25

The last two weeks of the year—December 17-31 see the busiest times in Disneyland Resort, especially for the holiday season. Guests can enjoy seasonal food and entertainment, such as fireworks and parades.

Lastly, Nuzzo noted that Magic Key holders will have a specialized tote bag available from December 5-20 under the Silly Symphony Swings at Disney California Adventure Park. Her Disneyland Resort holiday guide was thorough and very exciting.

It’s truly going to be a wonderful holiday season at the Disney Park.
