Add a little magic to your plans this holiday season – there is so much to see at the Disneyland® Resort! Visit between November 10 and January 7 to take part in special holiday foods, parades, entertainment, and decorations. The best part – you can save an additional 5% on Theme Park tickets when you ride the Pacific Surfliner.

Here are some tips to make your visit the happiest of all:

Take The Train

The Pacific Surfliner has frequent service to Anaheim – you can get to the station as early as 6:00 a.m. and depart as late as 11:00 p.m. There is a bus connection between the station and the resort, and it’s free with a valid train ticket. The trip itself takes around 20 minutes, but it’s best to give yourself extra time in case there are any delays (especially as you head back to the train station). Reservations are still required to visit Disneyland® Resort Theme Parks, so make sure to secure a park reservation in advance. And don’t worry if your plans change – Pacific Surfliner tickets are flexible.  

Take Advantage of Special Offers

When you enter an Amtrak reservation number from a recent or upcoming trip on our promotional page, you can unlock a 5% savings on single and multi-day tickets, as well as park enhancements, for the whole family.

Surround Yourself in Holiday Magic

Both Disneyland® and Disney California Adventure are transformed for the holidays, with festive sights and events all season long. Gaze up at the towering tree on Main Street, decorated in thousands of ornaments. Enjoy merry makeovers of guest favorites like "it's a small world" and the Haunted Mansion. Wave to Disney characters and Santa as they make their way through the park in "A Christmas Fantasy Parade". And don't miss the Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure – a celebration of diverse cultures and beloved traditions with special entertainment, food, and décor.

Catch the Holiday Nighttime Spectaculars

See Disney stories come to life at World of Color – Season of Light at Disney California Adventure. At Disneyland®, Sleeping Beauty's Castle and "it's a small world" light up each evening in dazzling displays. The night ends with the "Believe... In Holiday Magic" fireworks show and a magical snowfall. The last Pacific Surfliner train departs Anaheim at 11 p.m., so there is plenty of time to have a full day. Learn more.

Plan Your Day in Advance

The Disneyland Mobile App is a great resource for planning your visit to the Disneyland® Resort and making the most of your day. The Disney Genie service within the app can be used to mark which attractions are the most important to you (might we suggest anything train-themed), as well as the entertainment and dining experiences that interest you. The MagicBand+ is also available for hand-free access and special experiences throughout the park.
