The holiday season kicks off this year at the Disneyland Resort starting November 10, 2016 and will continue through January 8, 2017.  You can expect to see all of the great holiday decorations, holidays parades and enjoy the festive atmosphere, as similar to years past, but starting this year Disney California Adventure Park joins in on the holiday festivities in a bigger way than before.
