Disneyland Holiday Season Dining and Events

The holiday season at Disney’s theme parks and resorts is filled with delights for food fans! Disneyland will celebrate from November 13, 2014 – January 6, 2015.

The Disney shops tempt us with seasonal merchandise and treats. When the Candy Palace begins to churn out homemade candy canes, it’s time to linger even longer — to watch and to indulge!
