A Christmas Fantasy Parade is a time-cherished classic and it is back once again this year for the 2023 Disney Holidays. The iconic theme song leaves you humming all day long and the charming spectacle is a journey through the Christmas season with visits by several favorite Disney friends and a grand finale visit by none other than Santa Claus himself!

The parade features familiar sights and smells with a few noticeable changes including the removal of Buzz Lightyear’s toy space ship (he is now leading the Toy Factory float) and the removal of the inline skiers during the Winter Wonderland section of the parade.

A Christmas Fantasy Parade takes place twice daily along the Disneyland Park parade route. Showtimes are subject to change so always check the Disneyland App on the day of your visit for the most accurate information but you can typically expect to see the parade at 3:30pm and 6:30pm daily during the Disney Holidays season.

Afternoon Parade (3:30pm performance)

The parade is enchanting during the day as you can see in our full video below filmed near “it’s a small world” Holiday.

Evening Parade (6:30pm performance)

At night, the parade takes on a special glow that you just don’t get during the day. You can see the full parade in our video below, filmed from the base of the Matterhorn Bobsleds.
