Disney’s Festival of Holidays returns to California Adventure Friday and with it comes some brand new entertainment as well as returning favorites! New to the festival this year is Mickey’s Happy Holidays which is a character celebration that happens twice a day and includes Mickey and his pals having a high energy dance party at the Paradise Gardens Park and Carthay Circle.
The second new entertainment offering this year is the Holiday Sunset Concerts on the Palisades Stage featuring The Suffragettes. They are a cover band that will be playing fan favorites on select nights. Are you excited for the new entertainment coming to the Festival of Holidays? Let me know in the comments below!
It’s that time of the year again where the two holidays of Halloween and Christmas collide. Christmas decorations are already being set up at both Disney and Universal and now we are starting to get more information on Grinchmas with some pretty awesome news.
This awesome news is that this year Grinchmas will start on Thanksgiving Day and will run DAILY (instead of the previous just on weekends) through December 29th. Also starting at this time will be the Christmas at the Wizarding Wold of Harry Potter celebration with Christmas themed shows and entertainment including the ever popular projection show on Hogwarts Castle.
The holiday themed food and Hot Butterbeer will also be making a return and eveyr night at Universal Plaza there will be a Whoville themed lighting celebration to light the 55 foot Grinchmas Tree. As I have stated in previous articles about the holidays Christmas is my favorite time of the year at the SoCal parks and I am so excited to celebrate again this year!

Sleeping Beauty Castle is starting to undergo its Winter transformation at the Disneyland Resort. This week the first markings of snowfall have occurred with the rest of the roofing and turrets expected to get snow throughout the coming weeks. Next the icicles will be installed and the castle will be in the holiday spirit by the time the holidays start November 8th.
Each night guests gather in the Hub around 6pm for the Lighting Ceremony that includes music, lighting of the castle and Small World Holiday facade, as well as a snowfall.
