All of Our Favorite Things to Do During the Holidays at Disneyland Resort

The holidays are in full swing and everything is merry and bright! One of our favorite places to celebrate our holiday cheer is, of course, Disneyland Resort. We’re all about the epic holiday food, amazing lights, and decorations galore. Thankfully, even though Christmas is just around the corner, the holidays are happening at Disneyland Resort through January 6. So that’s where we’ll be in January when we’re sad that the holidays are coming to a close. If you’re also planning a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth to take in the holiday magic, here are some of our favorite things to do, as experienced by my teammate Taylor and me:

You’ll note that Taylor and I are decked out in our fave Minnie ears. If you’re also rocking your ears, remember that for every “ears” photo you share with #ShareYourEars, Disney Parks will donate $5 to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, up to $1 million! It’s a win-win: helping a good cause and wearing ears at the same time!

And now without further ado, our favorite things:

Disney California Adventure

Holiday Decorations at Cars Land

Radiator Springs is truly a delight during the holidays. From a Christmas tree made entirely out of tires, to a Santa-hat-wearing Mater, it makes us v. happy. Here is a pic of said Santa Mater:

Truly epic.

All the Festival of Holidays Food

Our general rule/life goal at all times: to try all the Disney food. We took a tour of the Festival of Holidays with our tasting passport and loved every minute.

Cute and delicious! One of my favorite things was the egg nog macaron, which is very obvious from the look of pure joy on my face:

Don’t worry, I ate that macaron immediately after waving it in the air for this Boomerang. Bliss.

The Grizzly River Rapids Bear

We spent several minutes (read: half an hour) taking pics of this bear. He is dressed up in a festive holiday sweater and it is a delight:

Feeling great after seeing him IRL. Then it was off to Disneyland!


Haunted Mansion Holiday

Nothing says the holidays like a visit from dear old Sandy Claws! This attraction is a classic in our hearts forever and ever.

Sleeping Beauty Castle Holiday

It wouldn’t be the holidays without these twinkling lights on one of our favorite castles in the world:

Of course, we also took in the view from the Walt and Mickey statue:

Heart eyes emojis were felt and placed into our Instagram stories.

“it’s a small world” Holiday

I estimate that we took 1,000 Boomerangs of the glimmering lights of “it’s a small world“, but I’ll only add this one:

This. Is. Magic. Speaking of …

“Believe … In Holiday Magic” Fireworks

This show is the perfect way to end a day of holiday Disneyland fun:

We wept tears of joy when we watched this show.

As you can see, Taylor and I had the time of our lives at Disneyland Resort during the holidays, and we’re already making plans to go back before January 6.

Happy holidays, everyone!
