- Hi, Stacy!
I’m so glad to hear you’re headed to the Disneyland Resort this holiday season! It’s one of my favorite times of year to visit and enjoy all of the festive extras. Even the Downtown Disney District will be decked out for the holidays, including visits from Santa Claus, carolers and live entertainment.
The area between AMC Theatres and ESPN Zone will be transformed into the Downtown Disney Winter Village on Nov. 14. Guests will be able to visit quaint holiday cottages, browse for gifts at themed chalets, and take in the spectacular 30-foot Christmas tree. The tree is located at Olaf’s Frozen Ice Rink, which is inspired by the snowman in the film “Frozen.” Ice skates will be available for rent, and helmets will be included for safety. Operating hours will be 3:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 3:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
Anaheim Ballet will perform scenes from “The Nutcracker” on select dates, and Downtown Disney Unwrapped, a presentation of fun holiday gift ideas, will begin Nov. 29. I hope this information is helpful, Stacy, and that you enjoy a wonderful visit to The Happiest Place on Earth! Please write back with any other questions you may have.
Wishing you magic,
