Disneyland Resort Debuts ‘World of Color − Winter Dreams,’ A Merry New Spectacular for 2013 Holiday Season Holiday Season Begins Nov. 12 with Christmas Parade, Jingle Cruise, ‘Holiday Magic’ Fireworks and Snowfall in Disneyland Park plus a New Celebration ‘Disney ¡Viva Navidad!’

Holidays at the Disneyland Resort are filled with an abundance of merriment, tradition and new experiences this year, including the debut of “World of Color − Winter Dreams.” The all-new version of “World of Color” in Disney California Adventure Park brings the spirit of the holidays to life with music, humor and the joy of the season.

Hosted by Olaf the snowman, from the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures animated feature “Frozen,” the “World of Color − Winter Dreams” show combines new animation with classic winter scenes from beloved Disney and Disney•Pixar films, such as “Bambi,” “Fantasia” and “Toy Story.” The show includes new music and special effects, including new methods for utilizing the massive “stage” of water, color and light that comes to life with the power of nearly 1,200 fountains.

Also new in Disney California Adventure, “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” takes over Paradise Gardens with a daily celebration inspired by the warmth and joyous spirit of Latino culture and holiday traditions. From Nov. 15 through Jan. 6, 2014, “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” offers special activities such as live Latino music, dance lessons, crafts and face painting for children and a “Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party.” The festivities also include traditional holiday foods and appearances by some popular Disney characters. The grand finale of “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” will be the special celebration of Three Kings Day (Dia de los Reyes) Jan. 3 through 6, 2014 in Paradise Garden.

These new experiences join a merry lineup of Disneyland Resort holiday traditions that begin Nov. 12, including “A Christmas Fantasy” parade, “Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks and snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park, plus special seasonal décor on Buena Vista Street, along with whimsical décor in Cars Land and a bug’s land in Disney California Adventure. Characters also make holiday appearances and the skippers of Jingle Cruise add some new holiday fun.

In addition to all the holiday cheer in “World of Color – Winter Dreams” and “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!,” Disney California Adventure gets a spectacular seasonal makeover:

At Disneyland Park

Two new experiences come to life in Disneyland this November, revealing the worlds of exciting new films, the comedy adventure “Frozen” and the epic adventure “Thor: The Dark World.” In Tomorrowland, Thor: Treasures of Asgard invites guests into a column of light and color which magically transports them from Disneyland to the home world of Thor, the Mighty Avenger. In Fantasyland, guests meet the enchanting sisters from “Frozen” – the fearless and optimistic Anna, and Elsa, who has the power to control snow and ice.

Also new, the popular Jungle Cruise attraction dashes through the holiday season as Jingle Cruise. The adventurous skippers in Adventureland celebrate the holidays by decorating their dock and boathouse with ornaments sent from home, augmented with their own plants, flowers, rope and items from their jungle surroundings. Passengers aboard the Jingle Cruise are treated to a stocking full of new Yuletide patter as they sail past familiar jungle scenes: “All those baby elephants want is their two trunk teeth.”

Many long-standing holiday traditions delight Disneyland guests throughout the season, including:
