¡Viva Navidad! is undeniably one of our favorite parts of the #DisneyHolidays at the Disneyland Resort and this year the event welcomes the addition of the new princess from Disney Channel’s “Elena of Avalor.”
The popular offering recalls the sights, sounds, and flavors of various Hispanic and Latino cultures and brings them together in a wonderful colorful explosion of holiday magic.
¡Viva Navidad! returns this year as part of a robust Disney Holidays season that includes the brand new Festival of Holidays celebration and World of Color: Season of Light. Returning favorites include A Christmas Fantasy Parade, Believe… In Holiday Magic fireworks spectacular, Jingle Cruise, and “it’s a small world”Holiday and of course decorations all around the parks.
The Disney Holidays celebration enchants the Disneyland Resort from November 10 – January 8, 2017.
We want to wish you a Merry Christmas! This enchanting parade is a high-energy explosion of awesomeness. The cavalcade and show stop moment take place a few times each day. Your best spot will be right in front of the Paradise Pier beer stand along the performance corridor.
Several fan favorites return once again this year including a Trio of Street Tacos (carne asada, carnitas, and chicken), Torta Al Pastor spiced pork sandwich, and Chicken Mole.
Pozole and Sopes are not being offered as dining options this year but variations of both missing dishes ARE available at the nearby Festival of Holidays marketplace food stands.
