This weekend, January 3-6, 2014, Disney California Adventure will finish off its popular "Disney ¡Viva Navidad!" event with a festive Three kings Day Finale. Here to tell us more about it, is Mirna Bran-Hughes, Disneyland Guest Relations Cast Member and Training Specialist.
Although most of the festivities, including the fabulous, high-energy "Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party" have been ongoing throughout the holidays, guests may also enjoy taking photos with sculptures of the Three Kings over at Paradise Garden...
See a display of various cultural icons, including some shoes left out for the Wise Men to fill with presents...
Or enjoy some of the holiday Mexican food options such as pozole, champurrado, and buñuelos. Special for this weekend is the traditional Rosca de Reyes bread. Typically eaten on January 6th to celebrate the Epiphany, there is often a small baby figurine (or an almond, to minimize choking hazards) baked into it to symbolize the Baby Jesus hiding from King Herod. The person who finds the baby is blessed and also has to throw the next Three Kings Day party.
Of course the highlight of the event throughout the season has been the Street Party, with the Three Caballeros, Mexican folklorico dancers, samba dancers, and giant "Mojiganga" puppets.
January 6th will be the last day to enjoy all these special holiday features, so come out and enjoy them and the spirit of the season while you can!
[Three Kings Day was also celebrated last year as part of the 2013 Limited Time Magic Campaign, as we detailed here: http://land.allears.net/blogs/lauragilbreath/2013/01/dia_de_los_reyes_magos_at_the.html ]
