I hope ya’ll are having a great holiday weekend. While it feels like the days are blending together, it’s nice to take a moment to remember the holidays taking place and to celebrate whether you are currently with your family or celebrating virtually. I always love Easter because it feels like the start of spring + ushers in fresh flowers, positive vibes + great weather. It also bring fun prints, colors + all the great spring styles.
I am currently crushing on Tie Dye so I figured this dress would make for a great Easter option especially styled two ways – a Disney version AND a normal spring version. Let me know which you like!
I am big into characters as you know so we snagged Mickey and Minnie Easter Bunnies at the Disney store before quarantine started and they are honestly the cutest. I paired them with this Aquamarine Loungefly Minnie Purse I found on sale at the Disney outlet store in Florida for only $29.99 originally $90! Such a great find!
Another bag I am loving is this pearl handbag I bought last year as my modern day Easter basket – isn’t it so fun? I linked to a variety styles below along with my white wedges that are super comfortable and great for so many occasions.
Are you guys doing anything fun for Easter? Painting eggs? Baking?!
♥ All Our Dreams Come True If You Have The Courage To Pursue Them – Walt Disney ♥
Close your eyes + take a moment to image visiting the happiest day on earth during the most magical time of the year…now open your eyes because it is possible! From dreamy decor to yummy treats to festive events, gifts + more, Disneyland during the Holiday Season is nothing short of magnificent.
I had the opportunity to check out all the fun the park has in store for the Holiday Season + am sharing it all with you!
DECOR + EVENTS
One of my favorite things about Disneyland year round is all of the amazing decor, so it comes as no surprise that during the Holiday Season they go ALL out! From huge Christmas trees, to gorgeous lights, wreaths + more, you will feel like you are in a Winter Wonderland, so I am rounding up some of my favorite spots.
At Disneyland one of my favorite spots is Main Street USA where the entire street is strung with lights, wreaths + at the center sits the most gorgeous Christmas Tree making for the perfect photo backdrop.
During the day you can look up and see wreaths shaped like Mickey Mouse, the huge Christmas tree, festive plants, flowers + more.
At night the street is lit up + looks like something out of a story book.
Of course another one of my favorite decor moments at Disneyland is Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. It is covered in wreaths, icicles + is glistening making for a storybook finish.
Every evening there is an enchanted show at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle where the building has a projected light display AND they even make it snow in California (talk about magical :p).
At 9:30pm every night there is a Holiday fireworks show where you can hear your favorite holiday timed perfectly to sparks in the air!
If you are looking for a breathtaking lights display, head over to the ‘It’s A Small World‘ ride. The entire outside of the ride is decked out in a rainbow display of lights that is something out of a fantasy…I definitely want to be immersed in that fairytale.
Another one of my favorite decor spots in the park is Mickey’s Toon Town. Goofy’s House is decked out for Christmas along with Mickey + Minnie’s homes as well. The bright, bold colors make Mickey’s Toon Town my go-to spot for cute instagram pics.
ICYMI – Disneyland + California Adventure changed up some of their attractions for the Holiday Season making them a ‘must see‘ before it’s too late!
At Disneyland they switched up the traditional Haunted Mansion ride + let Jack Skeleton from Nightmare Before Christmas take over with his twist on the classic ride. The Haunted Mansion ride has always been my favorite + this festive version blew my mind. From neon displays to insane sculptures, you MUST check it out before it goes away January 9th!
It’s A Small World also got a festive upgrade during the holidays so definitely check that out to see all the new elements it has to offer.
Over at California Adventure, Cars Land is fully decked out for the holidays. Think Christmas trees made out of tires, traffic cones, hubcaps + more plus Mater’s Tow Ride got a holiday twist to make it even more fun for kiddos + adults alike.
TREATS + SHOPPING
Ok…obviously one of my favorite things to do at Disney is go shopping, especially during Holidays. The stores are stocked with festive gifts for you, your friends, family + more. We got some holiday themed Mickey + Minnie dolls, custom ornaments + stockings. Most gift shops at both parks have a customization station where you can purchase merchandise and they can go ahead + make it personalized to you.
One of my favorite things to get at Disney is new Minnie Ears each time I go + during the holiday season they have a ton of new styles to choose from like ones with faux fur, ones with snowflakes, big bows + more.
For treats, meals + desserts, each park has a variety of foods with a holiday twist. I love heading to the candy + bakery shops on Main Street USA for Mickey themed rice krispies (which were made festive with a santa hat), red + green cupcake pops, candy apples + more.
I don’t know about you but I am a HUGE popcorn buff + apparently during the holiday season Disneyland + California Adventure have exclusive holiday themed popcorn pals (I love collecting these). At Disneyland they have this adorable one of Pluto in a Christmas Sweater + at California Adventure they have one of the Alien from Toy Story with Christmas lights around him.
