Disney Sunday: The Magic of the Holiday Season at the Disenyland Resort

Santa Mickey and Minnie Mouse in the holiday spirit!

Last week I had the opportunity to head over to the Disneyland Resort and experience all that Disneyland has to offer during the holidays. It’s no secret that along with probably millions of others, my favorite time of year to visit the Disneyland Resort is during the holiday season. There is something just so magical about visiting Disneyland and Disney California Adventure during this time of the year.

The Disneyland Resort is dressed up for the holiday season until Jaunary 8th, 2012. My absolute favorite thing about heading to Disneyland during the holidays is without a doubt is the “Believe…in Holiday Magic” Fireworks show and snow falling after the firework show. It never fails. I cry like a baby every time the snow starts falling and I see the sparkle in my children’s eyes as they revel in the magic of the holidays and Disney. It really is the stuff that memories are made off and heading to the Disneyland Resort during the holiday season has become a tradition for our family and has allowed me to create many beautiful memories with my family.
