A Christmas Fantasy Parade has become a holiday classic and it’s no surprise as to why. This festive

men. You’ll not only be able to catch Mickey, Minnie and other cherished Disney characters, but you’ll
also be able to see Santa Claus make his way down Main Street, U.S.A. This parade is fun for the entire
family, so be sure to snag a spot early!

Festival of Holidays
Luckily, the jolly festivities don’t stop in Disneyland! In Disney California Adventure Park, guests can
enjoy the Festival of Holidays. This celebration rejoices in different holiday traditions from various
cultures around the world. Here, you can indulge in delicious food and beverages at the Festive Foods
Marketplace, watch the ¡Disney Viva Navidad! Street Party Parade and enjoy arts and crafts for the
entire family. With so much to do, you’ll want to make sure you have enough time to experience it all.
Festive Foods Marketplace
Speaking of the Festive Foods Marketplace, this is a must-do if you’re a fan of delicious food. During
select dates, guests can try a variety of treats, eats and drinks inspired by different cultures. Although
they don’t have their 2018 holiday menu out yet, in the past, guests could experience twelve different
food and beverage kiosks. These menus include everything from Chips, Bread and Holiday Spreads to
Spicy Celebrations. Some of my favorite items included Sweet Potato Pie, Braised Pork Belly Adobo and
Spiced Peanut Brittle. With how delectable everything was last year, I can’t wait to see what new
creations they come up with for 2018.
Holiday Toy Drummers
The Holiday Toy Drummers made their debut last year for Holidays at the Disneyland Resort and
instantly stole the hearts of guests everywhere. Although they aren’t heavily advertised, this is a must-
see show for the holiday season. Located next to Paradise Bay, you can watch as the Toy Drummers
come to life and jam to your favorite seasonal songs. Because this show is only 10-15 minutes long, you
don’t have to worry about taking a large chunk of time out of your day to see it. So, if you want to jam
with the Holiday Toy Drummers, be sure to check the showtimes outside of Ariel’s Undersea Adventure.
Holidays at Radiator Springs
While you’re there, be sure to grant “Seasons Speedings” at Cars Land. Here, the charming town of
Radiator Springs transforms into a winter wonderland. With themed décor, seasonal treats and two
holiday-themed ride overlays, you might not ever want to leave!
Both Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree get a festive makeover during the
holiday season. At Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl and Mater’s Jingle Jamboree, you can have a holly, jolly time
spinning and dancing to original seasonal songs.
