Halloween Isn't Even Here Yet, But Disneyland Resort Is Gearing Up For Christmas – Here's A Sneak Peek

·2 min read

Hello fellow Disney fans! Not to get you thinking TOO far ahead, but let's be honest, the holidays are low-key the best time of year. And, although Halloween hasn't even happened yet, Disneyland is already gearing up for the holidays!


Believe it or not, we're only four weeks away from the start of Holidays at the Disneyland Resort — which kicks off Nov. 12, 2021, and runs through Jan. 9, 2022!

And to wet your whistle, here's a sneak peek at some of the new elements coming to Disneyland Resort this year...

First of all, Mickey and Minnie will be donning all-new holiday attire. (Where do I get one of these puffer jackets???)

When the holiday season begins on Nov. 12, you’ll be able to spot Mickey and Minnie in these new holiday looks around Town Square in Disneyland Park.

BONUS: If you're a Magic Key holder, you might get a chance to spot Mickey and Minnie in their new fits even sooner, because they'll be popping in to say "hello" inside the limited-time Starcade experience in Tomorrowland through Oct. 30, 2021!

You'll also be able to get your hands on some cute new plushes of the iconic duo in their winter outfits!
