So now that Halloween is over, the Winter Holidays have taken over the Disneyland Resort with a vengeance.
Some season offerings have continued on from the last holiday...
Haunted Mansion Holiday
...Some have returned from last season...
"it's a small world" Holiday
A Christmas Fantasy parade
...and some are brand new for this year.
Jingle Cruise is a new seasonal overlay for the Jungle Cruise attraction, in which the skippers bring a little holiday cheer to their tropical post. Consisting of new decorations in the queue and and some topical additions to the spiel, it's a nice change-up that refreshes the ride without completely altering its nature.
Over in Fantasyland, the Tangled meet and greet has been changed over to Frozen, with Princess Anna and Queen Elsa holding court in a cottage decorated with an animatronic Olaf the Snowman perched on the roof.
Most of the brand new celebratory additions are over in Disney California Adventure, where Disney ¡Viva Navidad! is taking place for the first time at the Paradise Garden area of Paradise Pier. Celebrating the spirit of the Latino culture, it features meet and greets with the Three Caballeros; crafts and face painting; traditional music and menu items; and the high energy "Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party," which takes place several times a day.
To best show the wide variety of holiday happenings around the resort, here's some video provided by Disney highlighting some of what's available:
With all the new things to see and do at the Disneyland Resort this season, it will surely be a cinch to turn any Scrooge to the holiday spirit! Be sure to catch all the festivities while they're here!
