It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Disneyland. Mixing the wonder of the holidays with the magic of Disney makes for some very jolly family fun. Here are photos of the special touches, decorations, and treats at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure parks at Christmastime to get you in the holiday spirit.
Christmas touches are everywhere at Disneyland during the holidays. Santa can even be spotted spinning popcorn inside a vendor’s cart!

Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie are dressed up for the holidays and happy to pose with your family at both Disneyland theme parks.
