Just as Walt famously said that the Disney empire “all started with a mouse,” the magic of Touring Plans all started with a book — namely, the Unofficial Guide. As co-author (with Bob Sehlinger and Len Testa) of The Unofficial Guide to Disneyland, I’m proud to announce that preliminary work is complete on the 2015 edition of our Anaheim guidebook, which will make its way to store shelves in plenty of time for the resort’s upcoming 60th anniversary. Naturally, we’ll continue to refine the text right up until the time it is sent to the printers later this year, and we’ll be bringing you details on the changes made to the tome as its publication approaches in the fall. But for now, I wanted to share a tiny taste of a couple of the changes coming to the Unofficial Guide, via a few fun Disney California Adventure videos — featuring the Mariachi Divas and World of Color — that I recorded during my most recent visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.

It may not have the six decades of cherished Christmas traditions of its older sibling across the Disneyland Resort esplanade, but don’t dismiss the Disney California Adventure holiday celebrations. The park has made great strides since its Cars Land-fueled rebirth last summer, and this year’s enhanced seasonal offerings are no exception. Once you’ve finished checking out my five favorite Disneyland holiday additions, tackle these top picks among DCA’s Christmas presents.

Buena Vista Street Decor and Shows

As soon as you step through Disney California Adventure’s Art Deco gates into the 1920’s era Buena Vista Street, you’ll notice the seasonal spirit in the shop windows. DCA has been criticized for redecorating the original Imagineer-designed window dispays with non-period merchandise, but the retail corridor’s holiday treatments for 2013 represent a return to form.

Limited Time Magic Events For November 15 – 24

by on November 15, 2013



Walt Disney World and Disneyland are inviting guests to get in touch with the Holiday Season during the newest round of Limited Time Magic offerings.

Starting at Walt Disney World, from now until January 4, guests can enjoy two delightful “presents” that are happening at the Magic Kingdom. First, you are invited to take in a showing of the Holly Jolly Trolley Show where the Citizens of Main Street perform great Holiday classics. That evening, enjoy the Celebrate the Magic Castle Projection show, which includes a special holiday finale and a brand new sequence inspired by the upcoming movie, Frozen.



At Disneyland, guests can get into the festive spirit by “Glowing With The Show” during the new World of Color – Winter Dreams show that’s showing at Disney California Adventure. Guests who wear their Glow With The Show ears can experience the dazzling new show from a special viewing area available to Guests with valid World of Color FASTPASS tickets! The viewing area is on a first-come, first-served basis, as space is very limited.

Oh, what fun there is to have at the Disney Parks this Holiday Season!
