There are four Disneyland attractions with holiday overlays that you won’t want to miss this season!

Over in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park, the residents are racing to celebrate the season. Two attractions rely on holiday magic to celebrate the haul-idays:

Take a seat and take a merry spin as the cars cruise to festive tunes, including “We Wish You Season’s Speedings,” “Joy To The Whirl,” “Jolly Joyous Santa Car,” “Carol Of The Horns” and “Jingle Bells.”

In Disneyland park, two popular attractions also transform just for the season:

  • “it’s a small world” Holiday – The beloved attraction takes you around the world and back as dolls and toys representing children enjoy the distinctive holiday traditions of their countries. In the evenings, the attraction’s facade twinkles with 50,000-plus colorful lights, music and video projections. 
    • AP Bonus: Annual Passholders can enjoy an extra hour at “it’s a small world” Holiday after park closing on Nov. 18-22 (Nov. 18-21 starting at 10 p.m. and Nov. 22 starting at midnight), as well as a special photo opportunity. Blockout dates apply.

Top 8 Ways to Stay Cool at Disneyland Resort in California

From the Disney Parks Blog:

Right now, there are so many new things to see and do at the Disneyland Resort, that it’s a great time to visit! As the Southern California sun shines bright, here are some ways to stay cool at Disneyland during your visit: 

First up is Disneyland park! 

Break away from the bright sun in a galaxy far, far away at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Within the planet of Batuu, you’ll find many cool places!

Photo: Disney Parks Blog

In Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, you can start cooling off in the cavernous path to the Main Hold of the Millennium Falcon. Once you reach this famous space, you can hang out around the Dejarik (chess) table for a few minutes before taking the controls of the fastest ship in the galaxy toward adventure and, ah, yes, a galactic breeze.

As you roam Batuu, head over to the Milk Stand to enjoy a refreshing Blue Milk and Green Milk – these frozen concoctions are sure to cool you down.

For crafty libations, we recommend Oga’s Cantina. This watering hole is where weary travelers of all ages can join together to refuel after a long day of adventuring. Hang out with DJ R-3X and sip on one of the many out-of-this-world non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverages. Just be sure to make a reservation to visit the cantina before you go!

Around Disneyland park, guests can stay cool at guest-favorite attractions like Splash MountainMatterhorn BobsledsHaunted MansionPeter Pan’s Flight and many others.

And of course, chill out with a Dole Whip Float from Tiki Juice Bar or The Tropical Hideaway, a Mint Julep in New Orleans Square or a delicious old-fashioned ice cream at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor.

Next, is Disney California Adventure park!

Head to Hollywood Land and experience the newly opened 3D movie musical “Mickey’s PhilharMagic” in the Sunset Showcase Theater. In the show, Donald stirs up some musical mayhem while you get swept into the fantastic world of classic Disney animated musical sequences, including “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Peter Pan” and “Aladdin.” Fun fact: Some scenes are super breezy! 

Photo: Disney Parks Blog

You can also take refreshing flight on Soarin’ Around the World, get lightly drizzled or even soaked on Grizzly River Run, go on a journey with The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, join a thrilling mission with Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, test your illustration skills in Animation Academy or take a break as you’re transported to Arendelle during the theatrical performance, “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” in Hollywood Land.

Disney California Adventure also offers amazing cold treats, like the lemon soft-serve at Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats on Pixar Pier, the hand-dipped ice cream bar at Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream, Memory Refreshers from Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff and even a delicious fruit smoothie from Schmoozies! in Hollywood Land.

How do you stay cool at Disneyland in the parks?

We know that rain can come along, too, but you don’t have to let it ruin your visit! Here are six ways to spend a rainy day at Disneyland!

Book Your Early 2021 Disney Cruise Beginning October 3, 2019

Early 2021 Disney Cruise

Disney Cruise Line has just announced their sailings for the beginning of 2021 so you can view departure ports and itineraries for an early 2021 Disney Cruise and even book your cruise beginning Thursday, October 3, 2019.

In early 2021, Disney Cruise Line plans to return to New Orleans, giving you even more opportunities to sail from the Crescent City with your family in early 2021. A limited-time engagement with cruises to the Bahamas and Caribbean, including visits to Disney’s private island paradise, Castaway Cay, highlight Disney Cruise Line’s early 2021 lineup of popular itineraries, while voyages will continue across the fleet to tropical destinations from Galveston, Texas; San Diego, California and both Miami and Port Canaveral, Florida.

The Disney Wonder Returns to New Orleans

On sailings from New Orleans, you can experience the flavors and flair of the Big Easy both onboard the Disney Wonder and ashore. The sounds and sights of New Orleans will come to life at Tiana’s Place restaurant, where your family is transported to an era of southern charm, spirited jazz and street party celebrations with live music and other surprises inspired by the Disney animated film “The Princess and the Frog.” Before or after your cruise, savor the city’s distinct cuisine, visit family-friendly museums and parks, and take in the sounds of world-renowned live jazz music. 

The series of magical voyages from New Orleans kicks off in late January 2021 with a pair of four- and five-night cruises to the Western Caribbean. The five-night voyage includes a visit to Progreso, Mexico, a new port of call for Disney Cruise Line on the Yucatan Peninsula. This quaint town is filled with treasures for your family to explore together, from ancient Mayan ruins to hidden swimming holes filled with crystal-clear water. 

Three seven-night sailings to the Bahamas with a stop at Castaway Cay, plus a 14-night Panama Canal cruise, round out the departures from the Crescent City in early 2021.

Popular Itineraries from Texas and California on the Disney Wonder

The Disney Wonder will also return to the popular home ports of Galveston and San Diego in early 2021. On sailings from Texas, you can enjoy the white-sand beaches of the Western Caribbean on a series of four- and six-night cruises to Grand Cayman and Cozumel. One seven-night departure will feature stops at Key West, Nassau and Castaway Cay. 

Following the season in New Orleans, the Disney Wonder heads to the West Coast for a variety of sailings to Baja and the Mexican Riviera departing from San Diego. On cruises ranging from three to seven nights, your family can hunt for gold aboard a pirate ship in Cabo San Lucas, embark on an off-road adventure in Ensenada or sunbathe on glittering sand beaches. 

Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island paradise in the tropical waters of the Bahamas, reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests. In a setting of crystal-clear turquoise waters, powdery white-sand beaches and lush landscapes, the 1,000-acre island offers one-of-a-kind areas and activities for every member of the family.

Bahamian and Caribbean Getaways from Florida on the Disney Magic, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Dream

Disney Cruise Line will have three ships sailing to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Florida in early 2021, and every cruise includes a day at Disney’s private island paradise, Castaway Cay. This award-winning destination, reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests, is the ultimate escape for everyone in your family. A day at Castaway Cay offers opportunities for adventure and relaxation in a lush, tropical setting filled with classic Disney storytelling.

  • From Miami, the Disney Magic will sail three-, four- and five-night Bahamian and Western Caribbean cruises
  • From Port Canaveral, the Disney Fantasy will sail seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries
  • From Port Canaveral, the Disney Dream will sail three- and four-night Bahamian cruises

Top Six Things to Do on a Rainy Day at Disneyland Resort

A little rain should never put a damper on a day of fun at the Disneyland Resort. In fact, it can be a great time to explore and enjoy the parks. Here are a few tips to ensure you make the most out of a rainy day at Disneyland Resort.

Prepare for the weather. It’s a good idea to wear comfortable, warm clothing. I also recommend wearing water-resistant footwear, and packing an extra pair of socks! If rain catches you by surprise, many Disneyland Resort merchandise locations offer ponchos and umbrellas. If you don’t see them on the shelves, just ask a cast member.

Enjoy favorite indoor attractions. There are numerous indoor attractions that are not only fun, but also keep you dry! My favorites are Pirates of the Caribbean in Disneyland park and Soarin’ Around the World in Disney California Adventure park. Check out the full list of indoor attractions on Disneyland.com.

Go again (and again). Rainy days can also mean more opportunities to ride favorite attractions! Be sure to check the Disneyland App for attraction wait times and other information.

Time to dine. Make a dining reservation and enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner with magical touches! Feast on Cajun and Creole cuisine at the charming Blue Bayou at Disneyland park or partake in a special character dining experience at Storytellers Cafe in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. Dining reservations can be made via the Disneyland App, Disneyland.com or by calling (714) 781-DINE.

Catch a show. Cozy up in one of our theaters and experience great entertainment. I always love sitting back and enjoying “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” in Disney California Adventure park or encountering Honest Abe in the classic Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln in Disneyland park!

Shop for Disney souvenirs. Take your time to explore World of Disney, the ultimate shopping destination at the Downtown Disney District. The store’s reimagined layout features uniquely themed areas showcasing the hottest Disney merchandise—you could be there for hours! While in Downtown Disney District, I also recommend immersing yourself in a hyper-reality adventure at The VOID, choosing either Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire or Ralph Breaks VR.

Top 5 Activities for Kids at Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party

This Halloween season, children’s cauldrons will bubble over with excitement at the new Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party at Disney California Adventure park. This separately ticketed party for the whole family will feature multiple new experiences – including the new Mickey’s Trick & Treat stage show, immersive treat trails and the new “World of Color” nighttime spectacular – “Villainous!

Little ones will be treated (and maybe even tricked!) to multiple surprises! Here are the top 5 activities for kids at Oogie Boogie Bash:

  • Mickey’s Trick & Treat – Perfect for little monsters, this new, interactive stage production invites kids of all ages to join Mickey Mouse and his pals as they throw a one-of-a-kind Halloween party! Enjoy dancing, not-so-frightening scary-tales and candy at the Disney Theater in Hollywood Land.
  • Villains Grove – Transformed into a wondrous and ethereal world inspired by Disney villains unlike anything seen before, Redwood Creek Challenge Trail will become Villains Grove, tricked out in a dreamlike environment perfect for kids to explore. This family-friendly experience will entice your children with a series of Halloween scenes, each creating a not-so-scary symphony of sound, light and shadows for you and your little ones to explore together!
  • Immersive Treat Trails – Take your tiny tykes trick-or-treating at the new, wonderfully wicked treat trails throughout the park. Little ones will be able to see Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” and even Oogie Boogie himself! Additional treat trails will feature oversized cauldrons full of treats for children of all ages to enjoy.
  • “Frightfully Fun Parade” – Children will love dancing along to this fan-favorite parade coming to Disney California Adventure park for the first time! The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow starts the procession, followed by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse who lead the cavalcade of characters and many mischievous Disney villains who are ready to stir up some trouble along the parade route. Children will love seeing their favorite characters dance and singing to the spell-binding songs of the Halloween season!
  • “Villainous!” – Kids will love watching the twisted tale about the young girl Shelley Marie in the new “World of Color” nighttime spectacular. This Halloween story takes you on an unforgettable journey through devious encounters with The Queen, Ursula, Dr Facilier, Hades, Jafar, Maleficent and more! Children will be dazzled with the special effects—from the fountains and lights, to lasers and projections. “Villainous!” shows that, deep down, there’s a little villain in all of us!

This spook-tacular Halloween party would not be a Halloween bash without dressing up! Kids and their parents are encouraged to dress in costume for the occasion.

Oogie Boogie Bash, which takes the place of Mickey’s Halloween Party, is only offered on 20 select nights this fall, starting Sept. 17. For more information, including costume policy guidelines and to purchase tickets, visit Disneyland.com/HalloweenParty.
