Is it ever too early to start counting down to the holidays? While it may not be time to dig out that ugly sweater just yet, Disneyland Resort is giving you a sneak peek at the new cozy wintertime attire that Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be sporting this holiday season and confirming the return of just some of your holiday favorites! There are even festive treats that you can enjoy NOW, in celebration of Halfway to the Holidays, because why should we have to wait until December to treat ourselves to some irresistibly delicious sips and bites?
Mickey and his crew always look their best for the holidays, and this year will be no different. Check out the mid-century modern inspired looks they’ll sport in Disneyland park, putting a spin on the classic red and green with the addition of pastel colors and playful prints. These looks will include snowy sparkle, and peep their matching holly brooches crafted by Minnie Mouse herself. These looks “sleigh!”
Craving even more holiday cheer to look forward to? Well, I’m thrilled to let you know that the fan-favorite attraction transformation “it’s a small world” Holiday will return to Disneyland park this holiday season! This is always on my must-do list during the holidays, as I love seeing the children in the attraction don their festive attire. Somehow, it feels even more magical than it already is throughout the year!
If your tastebuds are ready to celebrate the holidays NOW, you’re in luck. You don’t have to wait until December to delight in Gingerbread Man Macarons, available today through June 15 at Kayla’s Cake in Downtown Disney District. I can’t decide if they’re more adorable or delicious, but I’ll let you know when I figure it out. Speaking of adorable and delicious gingerbread, I can’t wait to get my hands on the Mickey Gingerbread at Pacific Wharf Café, available today through June 15 in Disney California Adventure park (Subject to availability, limit 2 per transaction). While I’m there, I’ll stop by the Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land to treat myself to an Egg Nog Slush with Rumchata topped with whipped cream and sprinkles, also available today through June 15. Yum!
We are already buzzing with excitement to kick off another joyful holiday season at the Disneyland Resort, and look forward to sharing many more details about the upcoming holiday season in the future. In the meantime, let’s celebrate Halfway to the Holidays. Cheers!
