November 10, 2023

UPDATED 2023 HOLIDAYS. If you're visiting the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort this year, you're in for a treat. The seasonal celebration is unlike any other! To help, we've put together everything you NEED to see at the Festival of Holidays at Disneyland Resort this year.

The holiday fun at Disneyland can't be missed this year! From delicious treats to festive ride overlays, there's so much to see and do. One of the best parts of the seasonal celebration is the Festival of Holidays. The event began last year and became an instant favorite, which we hope to see return every year from now on.

When we interviewed Disneyland Cast Member, Jennifer Magill, about everything you need to see at the Festival of Holidays, Jennifer really delivered!

Jennifer is actually one of the Cast Members who has worked on World of Color. In fact, one of her projects was the breathtaking "Hurry Home" segment you can see during the Lunar New Year Celebration version of World of Color.

Talk about a celebrity! Check out our interview about everything you need to see at the Festival of Holidays below.

If you’d rather skip the video, here are the highlights from our interview with Jennifer.

What is your favorite addition to the Festival of Holidays?

As we thought she would say, there's too much to pick a single favorite! However, Jennifer did point out some of her top picks to experience during the Festival of Holidays. For entertainment, you won't want to miss the Holiday Toy Drummers. The performance happens almost every hour throughout the day, so make sure to check the Disneyland app so you don't miss it.

Food wise, you'll want to stop at ALL of the Festival of Holidays kiosks. Every year they bring back old favorites and fresh new flavors. No matter which dishes you choose, your taste buds will be delighted.

What has been added to the Festival of Holidays over the years?

While many favorites like the Disney ¡Viva Navidad! parade have returned, there are some new things at the Festival of Holidays this year. New food and entertainment were the focus, including Phat Cat Swinger, Blue13 Dance Company and new delicious treats at each of the marketplace kiosks.

What goes into selecting the cultures spotlighted at the Festival of Holidays?

Jennifer did a great job explaining how there are so many cultures that deserve to be highlighted and each year Disney does their best to portray as many as you can. No matter where you come from or how you celebrate the season, it's likely you'll find something at the Festival of Holidays that resonates with you.

What's included and what's extra at the Festival of Holidays?

It's amazing how much is included with your park admission for the Festival of Holidays! Jennifer let us know that the food from the marketplace kiosks does cost extra, but everything else - including the amazing entertainment and culturally inspired activities - is included. It's such a great value and a fun way to celebrate the holidays around the world!
