Disney castle Parks are already a magical experience, and one of the few things that can make them even more magical is beautiful snowfall. Believe it or not, it is possible to have a Disney Day in the snow, but it depends on when you go and which Parks you visit.

Unfortunately, seeing real snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A., at Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World Resort, Florida, or Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in Southern California is next to impossible. But there are two Disneyland Resorts that have already recorded snowfall several times in their lifetimes: Disneyland Paris Resort and Tokyo Disney Resort.

While it is still far too early to tell exactly when Guests can be guaranteed snow at a Disney Park, past records can shed light on when you can have the best chances to see snow at either Resort. Unfortunately, though, it looks like your best chances will be after all of the Disneyland Christmas festivities.

Best Chances to See Snow at Disneyland Paris Resort

According to, January and February offer the potential for the most snowfall for the year averaging 5 snow days and 4 snow days, respectively.

Historically, snowfall is most common on January 4 and January 20, and the last time Sleeping Beauty Castle was dressed in wintery white was a freak snowstorm on April 1, 2022, a surprise heavy snowfall in December 2021–keeping that Christmas Fantasy of a snowy holiday season alive–, and in January 2019.

Best Chances to See Snow at Tokyo Disney Resort

It is rare to see snow at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea than at Disneyland Paris, but it is still possible. January 2022 brought snowfall for at least one day. And according to, Tokyo can expect an average of 4 days of snow in January and 5 days of snow in February. According to Tokyo Disney Resort insiders at, the last time it snowed was January 6, 2022, and it had previously snowed in 2018 and 2016.

However, characters have been known to come out and have an aesthetically magical time with the Guests. You are also in for some of the most beautiful and rare sights at any Disney Theme Park.
