Offering a feast for the senses, guests can sample new and returning food and beverages such as southern mac and cheese and kielbasa with pierogi accompanied by upbeat music at the Palisades Stage, Sonoma Terrace and for the first time, the Hollywood Backlot, where Disney Festival of Holidays will also be celebrated.

Disney ¡Viva Navidad! returns to Paradise Gardens Park for its tenth season. Paradise Garden Grill is serving many new menu items such as the shareable loaded torta and chocolate cake flan. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and The Three Caballeros will debut colorful new celebratory attire that creatively weave elements of traditional Latin American fashion with holiday motifs through playful textured fabrics and vibrant floral embroidery. They will once again host a joyous street party featuring Mexican folklórico dancers and mariachis, Brazilian samba dancers and percussionists, and giant mojiganga puppets. Additional festivities include live music and dancing, visits with beloved Disney characters and special appearances by Mirabel from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto.”

Festive decor throughout Disneyland Resort

Décor brightens the season throughout Disneyland Resort, featuring grand Christmas trees decorated with uniquely themed ornaments in both theme parks, the Downtown Disney District, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disneyland Hotel.

Icicles and snow-capped turrets adorn Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, and with a bit of Disney magic, “snow” is scheduled to fall every night in select areas of Disneyland Park. “Snow” is also scheduled to fall in the Downtown Disney District nightly every half hour from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. between Jazz Kitchen Coastal Grill & Patio and Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes starting Nov. 24 through Dec. 31. At Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, a new festive gingerbread houseinspires amateur gingerbread architects with its intricate design inspired by pastries.

Ornaments, lights and more embellish beloved attractions. In Disneyland, a merry boat ride on the wintry waterway of “it’s a small world” Holiday serenades guests with choruses of jolly tunes. In New Orleans Square, Jack Skellington from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” has redecorated the Haunted Mansion into the frightfully festive Haunted MansionHoliday to create a collision between Halloween and Christmas. Guests can gear up for some cheer in Disney California Adventure on Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl and Mater’s Jingle Jamboree, which both have seasonal spins for the “haul-idays.”
