Disneyland California's Christmas Tree, the centerpiece of Main Street USA, became completely artificial in 2008. For the first time in 53 years an artificial tree was installed to facilitate a holiday light show with a whopping 62,000 energy-efficient LED lights and enhanced effects. Not only is the park actively participating in energy-saving holiday celebrations in keeping with other efforts throughout the seasons such as the more efficient, less polluting Disneyland Fireworks display held many nights throughout the year, but the event planners are also reach higher in an effort to wow audiences.  After dark, the magic of the holidays extends all the way from the Christmas Tree in Town Square to Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle, elaborately festive with snowdrifts and icicles (the only real snowdrifts you'll normally find in Southern California are in the San Bernardino Mountains two hours by car. The mountain peaks are sometimes visible from the theme park!)

Disneyland Resort's annual holiday celebration includes Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle presentation (unveiled in 2007)  with three acts unfolding throughout the evening. Each event features a blush of winter snow on Main Street, U.S.A. and crescendos into a finale, “Believe … in Holiday Magic” fireworks show. In the grand finale, theme park guests travel on a journey of sights and sounds of the season.  A climactic snowfall swirling on Main Street and New Orleans Square resounds with the song, “White Christmas”.

Take a romantic walk through Sleeping Beauty's “reawakened” Castle in a show that tells a story in a style reminiscent of the Disneyland Castle walkthrough of earlier years. The twist to this adventure is the infusion of enhanced 21st-century special effects.

Themed entertainment, sparkling decorations and tasty treats add festive warmth to holiday fun at both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure. Tradition plays a big part at the Magic Kingdom so there are some returning holiday favorites:
Santa’s Reindeer Round-up. This holiday extravaganza held at Big Thunder Ranch  (AKA “West Pole”) is where Santa can unwind with Mrs. Claus and the reindeer team. Kids and adults can chat with St. Nick, see real reindeer grazing in a corral, play reindeer games, create take-home Yuletide souvenirs and join in holiday line dances with music from a Western trio.
• “A Christmas Fantasy” parade. Look to Main Street, U.S.A. every night during the holiday season for this ever-popular procession. In the parade theme park guests watch an enchanting collection of holiday scenes, music and a cast of Disney characters in Yuletide vignettes.
Haunted Mansion Holiday. Get ready for a madcap celebration as the traditions of Halloween and Christmas collide. The ghoulish but well-meaning Jack Skellington from the film Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas comes to the Haunted Mansion to transform it with his skewed vision of the holidays.
It’s a Small World holiday. It’s a small world is a worldwide celebration of the season, boasting more than 300,000 glittering lights on its facade.

Disney’s California Adventure celebrates the season with fanciful park-wide decorations and lively entertainment.
• Guests approaching the park will immediately get in the holiday mood as they encounter the iconic “CALIFORNIA” letters transformed to appear as swirling red and white peppermint sticks.
• “a bug’s land” transforms as Flik and his bug buddies spread giant Christmas lights and oversized ornaments throughout their realm.
• The holiday scene at Paradise Bay includes a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, hundreds of sparking lights on nearby trees, and lampposts decorated with seasonal wreaths.
The Downtown Disney District and the Disneyland Resort hotels will join in the merriment with twinkling lights and ornaments, special entertainment and holiday dining.

Disneyland Resort features two theme parks – Disneyland (the original Disney theme park) and Disney's California Adventure park – plus the Downtown Disney District comprised of dining, entertainment and shopping. The Resort’s three hotels are the luxurious 745-room Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the 988-room Disneyland Hotel and the 489-room Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel.
