Disneyland Resort has officially kicked off its holiday season which runs now through Jan. 8, 2023, and their effort to create an inclusive environment for their guests is hitting all targets with this season’s offerings.
Known for its movie-themed merchandise and of course, their food offerings, visiting the resort this season is worth every penny spent on admission.
Disney California Adventure amped up the holiday by featuring cuisines to delight all pallets with the Sip and Savor Pass which allows guests to purchase a lanyard that can be used throughout the park to try the many food offerings with something for everyone. Here’s a tip to avoid the wait in line: you can purchase your items at any of the available food cart locations and take your receipt with you to pick up at the location where the item is located.
The Disneyland Resort will celebrate with food dishes for Christmas, Diwali, Hanukah, Kwanza, and Navidad that feature vegetarian, plant-based, and kid-friendly items. Don’t worry, if you’re 21 and over there are specialty beverages for you too!
Keep your Disneyland app open to guide you to the various food market carts that line the main walkway through the park where you can purchase.
Get into the Red Beans and Rice with a Sweet Potato-stuffed Cornbread Muffin, or the decadent Southern Mac ‘n Cheese.
Winter Sliderland gives you a taste of Hannukah by featuring a Brisket Slider with Smoked Onions, and Horseradish Ketchup on a pretzel roll or traditional Christmas fare with their Holiday Ham Slider complete with cranberry-bacon Jam on a Salt & Pepper Brioche Bun.
Two beloved Disneyland attractions return with fan-favorite seasonal transformations. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the “it’s a small world” Holiday features dolls and toys representing children around the world, enjoying the distinctive holiday traditions of their respective countries. Unique to this year’s presentation, each room in the attraction features a small detail displaying the number 25. Over in New Orleans Square, Jack Skellington and his friends cause a collision between Christmas and Halloween to transform the Haunted Mansion into Haunted Mansion Holiday.**
The festive décor at Disneyland presents many beautiful locations for holiday photos. Guests are greeted by the iconic 60-foot-tall Christmas tree as they enter the park, and the Plaza Point holiday shop is decorated with garlands, nutcrackers, and more. Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle enchants guests from day to night with shimmering icicles and twinkling lights. The Holiday Time at the Disneyland Resort guided tour offers a hosted experience of select seasonal offerings and reserved viewing for “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade.
Last but certainly not least, don’t forget to indulge in the food and get some of the holiday merch!
Don’t forget you still need to reserve your space to enjoy the holiday excitement at the Disneyland Resort now through Jan. 8, 2023.
