We are just a few days away from the kick-off of the holiday season at Disneyland! Disney Festival of Holidays will be returning to Disney California Adventure Park with new celebrations and returning favorites!
Inspired by the vibrant cultural diversity of Southern California, this heartwarming celebration brings the holiday season to life with music and dance performances, the colorful Festival Foods Marketplace, diverse crafts and plenty of beloved Disney characters who invite you to delight in the festive spirit of the holidays.
This year an all-new character celebration called “Mickey’s Happy Holidays” will feature favorite Disney and Pixar characters. They will enter the park to the sound of high-energy music, and you’re invited to dance along with Mickey and pals! Look for them at the Paradise Gardens Park Obelisk and Carthay Circle, where everyone can sing and dance along!
Also new this year, the Holiday Sunset Concerts on the Palisades Stage feature The Suffragettes. This exciting festival cover band rocks the holidays on select nights, with chart-topping hits from some of your favorite musical artists. On other nights, the explosive energy of Phat Cat Swinger, the West Coast’s “Little-Big Band,” will showcase their swinging selection of irresistible holiday music, presented with a fresh new twist.
Other returning entertainment will still honor the many cultural holidays celebrated at Disney Festival of Holidays. Blue13 Dance Company presents a spirited tribute to Diwali through traditional Indian folk dances and Bollywood. Mostly Kosher brings the spirit of Hanukkah in a concert that combines Klezmer, Jazz and Rock & Roll. A cappella performances by The Sound celebrate Christmas and Kwanzaa, and the Grammy Award-winning Mariachi Divas bring the joy of Navidad to the party! Disney Festival of Holidays includes all that, plus the antics of the Holiday Toy Drummers, the incredibly fun Disney ¡Viva Navidad! with The Three Caballeros and Santa’s Holiday Visit at Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.
Disney Festival of Holidays will take place from November 8, 2019 through January 6, 2020.
