5 Disneyland Resort Holiday Experiences That
Require Extra Planning
No. 1 | Disneyland Candlelight Processional 2014
DISNEYLAND, MAIN STREET TRAIN STATION
The 2014 Disneyland Candlelight Processional is expected to be performed for two nights only the first weekend in December, with two performances each night [DisneyTouristBlog.com].
Since 1958, the performance is a celebrity narration of the Christmas story accompanied by a mass choir beautifully singing holiday songs. The choir members carry lit candles down Main Street, U.S.A to the Main Street Train Station, where the performance is held.
Viewing for guests without an official invitation is LIMITED first-come, first served viewing and guests may be required to stand [TheMouseForLess.com]. It’s not unheard of for guests to ‘camp out’ all day for the best view.
No. 2 | World of Color “Winter Dreams”
World of Color gets a festive makeover in World of Color “Winter Dreams.” Watch “Frozen’s” Olaf and other beloved Disney characters come to life in a whole new way — on an impressive 19,000 square foot veil of mist. Read more about this after-dark spectacular show on the Disneyland Resort website. FASTPASSES go quickly, so get yours as soon as possible.
No. 3 | Hand-Crafted Candy Canes
DISNEYLAND, Candy Palace, Main Street U.S.A
DISNEY CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE PARK, Trolley Treats, Buena Vista Street
Wristband required, and available at specified candy kitchens at park opening
Hand-crafted candy canes have been a tradition at the Disneyland Resort for over 30 years. Park guests will gather to watch candy cane makers mix and craft these large candy canes from scratch. A LIMITED number of batches are made on specified dates, and a LIMITED number of candy canes will be available. Approximate cost of each candy cane: $12.99 .
We’ve heard that at park opening we should be prepared to speed walk to the specified location to receive a wristband. The wristband will indicate when your batch of candy canes will be available for purchase. Confirm with a Cast Member that the line you’re in is the wristband line. A stand-by line may be available where guests can wait to purchase unclaimed candy canes. Please call the official Candy Kitchen hotline for the most up to date information at (714) 781-0112.
No. 4 | A [Snow]Manly Makeover
DOWNTOWN DISNEY DISTRICT, Anna & Elsa’s Boutique
With the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, as a mom of boys I’ve wondered when our “princes” would have their chance at an official Disney character makeover. This holiday season, our little men [ages 3-15] can get a hair style inspired by their favorite “Frozen” friend, Olaf.
They can show off their “snow”-frosted hair gel tips in a new Olaf tee of their choice. With fun in-store photo opps, you can snap some dashing photos of their fun new “Frozen” look. As of this morning, they had appointments available as early as the first week in December.
Reservations and Pricing: (714) 781-STYLE or (714) 781-7895

No. 5 | Anna and Elsa Meet-and-Greet
As soon as the park opens, return time tickets for the Anna and Elsa meet-and-greet are distributed in Fantasyland near the Frozen Royal Reception cottage.
The park advises guests to have their park ticket ready, which often means each guest must be present to receive a ticket.
When you return with your ticket, you’ll still have to wait in line to meet Anna and Elsa. If you’re not able to meet Anna and Elsa personally, you can catch them in the Frozen Fantasy Pre-Parade.
