Even though the Halloween season is in full swing in the theme park world, the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort kick off on Nov. 9, turning the Happiest Place on Earth into the Merriest Place on Earth!


Celebrate the return of the holidays at the Disneyland Resort starting Nov. 9.

This year brings a variety of festive experiences for everyone in the family to enjoy, including:
