Hey Everyone, it’s Kimberly from Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. To say that there has been a lot going on at the Disneyland Resort is an understatement. This year has been extra special as the Diamond Celebration kicked off over Memorial Day weekend. The celebration brought spectacular decorations, limited time merchandise and treats, and most of all, three new nighttime shows; Paint the Night Parade, World of Color – Celebrate! and the Disneyland Forever fireworks. With the changes, some of the seasonal celebrations have had some tweaks this year, which means that the holidays (both Halloween and Christmastime) are going to be unlike any other year at Disneyland. The Disneyland Resort also made some exciting new surprises. Here are the dates to know for planning your Disneyland vacation in the next year:
Halloween Time/Diamond Celebration: Now – November 1
I talked about Halloween in detail last month, but it is truly one of the most popular times of year to visit Disneyland and the celebration is still going strong. The Pumpkin Festival on Main Street U.S.A., Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy, Haunted Mansion Holiday and other seasonal surprises are continuing to fright and delights guests. There are also still plenty of Mickey’s Halloween Party nights between now and the end of the celebration. Paint the Night Parade will only be available to party guests, and the Disneyland Forever fireworks will be replaced with the Halloween Screams on Mickey’s Halloween Party nights only, again only for those with a special ticket for the event. Disneyland Forever will show as normal on all other nights, so you’ll want to check Disneyland.com‘s calendar to make your theme park plans.
Holidays at the Disneyland Resort/Diamond Celebration: November 13, 2015 – January 6, 2016

Holidays at the Disneyland Resort bring all sorts of ways to celebrate the season. Haunted Mansion Holiday, “it’s a small world” holiday, Jingle Cruise, and A Christmas Fantasy Parade will all return. Olaf’s Snow Fest is another fun surprise that will be back only for the holiday season, where guests can build a real snow man, or race down a hill on a sled. At nighttime, World of Color – Celebrate! will be replaced by World of Color Winter Dreams, a holiday version of the show hosted by Olaf. Paint the Night Parade and Disneyland Forever will be the nighttime entertainment options at Disneyland. The holiday fireworks won’t be available this year, because of the special 60th fireworks. Also, guests should know that the limited time diamond-ized 6oth Anniversary Sleeping Beauty Castle will stick around through the holiday season.
Season of the Force: November 16, 2015 – Spring 2016
Originally slated to open early 2016, Season of the Force made plans for a light speed arrival next month. This Star Wars celebration will take Tomorrowland by stormtrooper. Special character meet-n-greets, Space Mountain Hyperspace, new story lines in Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, and an updated Jedi Training show are just some of the exciting additions coming to the Disneyland Resort.
Diamond Celebration: Now – September 5, 2016
An official end date was recently announced for the Diamond Celebration. The festivities have been bigger and better than expected, and it is one celebration your family won’t want to miss. If you don’t have a Disneyland vacation on the calendar yet, you’ll want to get one planned before the 60th Anniversary comes to a close.
