The holiday season will kick off Nov. 15 at Disneyland Resort, bringing favorite traditions like the Disney Festival of Holidays to Disney California Adventure park, plus special overlays on beloved attractions, cherished seasonal spectaculars and dazzling wintry décor throughout the resort. To celebrate Halfway to the Holidays this year, we are sharing a sneak preview of the new wintertime attire that Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will wear this season!

Mickey, Minnie and some of their friends will debut these charming new outfits in Disneyland park, reminiscent of traditions of writing heartfelt letters to friends, family or even Santa Claus during the holiday season.

Very Merrytime Cruises Aboard Disney Cruise Line

‘Tis (almost) the season for tropical tidings! Disney Cruise Line will offer more beloved Very Merrytime sailings this winter, when select sailings will light up with the spirit of the holidays.

Gather ‘round the tree in the atrium for a tree-lighting ceremony and dance to carols on the upper decks during Mickey and Minnie’s Holiday Party, where you might even find themselves in a magical snow shower at sea! Our favorite Disney characters will don their holiday finest for these sailings, so pack some festive looks for the occasion.

The Disney Cruise Line decks (and halls!) will glow with seasonal décor, and these specialty sailings will have Very Merrytime activities the whole family will enjoy, along with commemorative merchandise and spirited sweets and treats.
