Hey All!

Nothing is more magical than spending the holidays at the Disneyland Resort! It’s a family tradition now in my family that we always go during the holidays to celebrate Christmas and Three Kings aka Tres Reyes. Every year we visit it seems more magical then the year before.

As Deluxe annual pass members we can visit Disneyland very often, but nothing compares to Disneyland during the holidays.

Main street is decked out in their holiday best…

And so is Sleeping Beauty’s castle.

How spectacular does it look? Amazing! I love the way it looks lit up at night. There is nothing like the magic of Disneyland for the holidays.

We came dressed in our Disney princess best to enjoy the holiday filled day.

We started our day at the Carnation Cafe as it’s a tradition for us to get our Mickey Waffles before we tackle the park.

IMG_1147

The food is always amazing at Carnation and so is the service. We snapped a quick selfie to show our #DisneySide before we tackled all the parks have to offer for the holidays.

I did stop to do some Holiday shopping before proceeding to the parks as I like to make sure I get everything I want before the crowds come to the park.

How adorable are these Minnie Santa Hats? So festive and fun!

Lets not forget all the tasty holiday treats the Disneyland resort has to offer.

You can find everything from amazing shortbread cookies to handmade and ready made delicious candy canes at the park. You do have to get a wrist band on certain days at the park to get a fresh made candy cane.

After the shopping was done it was off to enjoy the park.

It’s a small world Holiday is back!

I love this ride as it’s a ride the whole family of all ages can enjoy!

The decor through out the ride is spectacular.

I always notice something different each time I ride it with my family each year. I can’t believe 2015 is almost here. Oh how 2014 has flown by!

We also love riding the Jingle Cruise aka the Jungle Cruise! It gets a holiday makeover—with a boatload of new jokes sure to “sleigh” you.

The Haunted Mansion Holiday is also back and better than ever!

IMG_1169

Jack Skellington gives the mansion a Christmas makeover that is sure to delight and fright even the foulest fiends. Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas inspires the great transformation from haunted house to Halloween Town, brimming with jack-o-lanterns and wreaths, sinister toys and kooky characters from the hit animated film. Don’t miss the ginger-dread houses and blood-curdling pies as the Oogie Boogie Man and others scare up some extra festive fun. Season’s Screamings, everyone!

The A Christmas Fanstasy Parade is truly spectacular and honestly one of my favorite parts of the Holidays at Disneyland! Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and more, don their most festive apparel for this sensational seasonal tradition. It’s a flurry of Floats and Dancers!

You can Ring in the season with prancing reindeer, marching toy soldiers, dancing gingerbread cookies and so much merriment.
