The Holidays Come to Cars Land! and Disneyland Resort

By December 7, 2012Orange County

Is Disneyland on your list for the holidays? It’s better than ever with the addition of Cars Land in the mix. We checked out the park during Family Media Day, and the kids were buzzing around the Resort like three little elves on a mission to see and do all in a day.

Between Disneyland and California Adventure, you can definitely spend a whole day trying to squeeze in all the attractions. Highlights include: the new holiday décor for Cars Land and Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure, the “Believe … in Holiday Magic” fireworks show, the “A Christmas Fantasy” Parade and the snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A., “it’s a small world” Mall and New Orleans Square.There’s also Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle; after dark, there’s a special holiday lighting and special-effects show.You can also enjoy a new ice rink for the holidays at Downtown Disney.

First on our list was Cars Land, as we hadn’t checked it out yet. What fun! The Radiator Springs Racers ride was well done by Disney imagineers. We laughed wildly as we raced the car next to us, taunting them about how they’re ‘going down.” The ride was as beautiful and scenic, as it was fast and creative.

It really is a magical time to ring in the holidays at Disneyland Resort.

Now will your children be cast under the spell of all things nice and little of the naughty? You can hope! Such a classic moment at the park (below), as Ty incessantly told Zoe to stop hugging him. Ah, the warm and fuzzy of the holidays.

Have a great time. The fun is on through Jan. 6, 2013. For more information about Disneyland Resort, visit For ticket and hotel offers, visit
