    We are taking advantage of a family trip to CA to stop by DL for a couple of days starting the day after Christmas. We know the crowd level will be high, but we want to try and get in the best of the best since it's our 1st time. Any suggestions?

    Hi, Susana!

    I'm glad to hear you're planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort. The seasonal decorations, events, merchandise, attractions and food items make The Happiest Place on Earth even more delightful! 

    While the theme parks typically are busy right after Christmas, don’t let your excitement be lessened! Park hours will be long and the entertainment schedule will be bustling, so you should have lots of opportunities to experience the “must-dos” on your list. Be sure to utilize Disney’s FASTPASS service when available to optimize your time, and check out in advance so you can pick out your family’s go-to attractions and shows for each park. Consider staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel so you’re as close to the parks as possible and able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours. I also suggest making dining reservations now for any table-service meals you might like to enjoy.

    You won’t want to miss the Haunted Mansion Holiday and “it’s a small world” Holiday attractions, and the "Believe...In Holiday Magic" fireworks show’s finale of snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A. is a must-see. On the “Holiday Time at Disneyland” Tour, you can hear holiday tales from Disneyland Park history, experience seasonal attractions and watch A Christmas Fantasy Parade from a reserved viewing area while enjoying a delicious treat and warm beverage. Call (714) 781-TOUR (8687) for reservations. I’m excited about a show at Disney California Adventure Park called “World of Color—Winter Dreams,” a nighttime water spectacular that brings all-new and amazing animation to the popular show. 

    I hope this helps, Susana, and that you have a wonderful visit! Please write back with more questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted holiday vacation.

    Wishing you magic,
