Disneyschooling: Celebrating Festival of Holidays and the Magic of the Holidays at Disneyland Resort

We were given 3 park hopper tickets to experience the Festival of Holidays and magic of the holidays at Disneyland Resort to share with you. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own!

The Holiday season is in full swing at Disneyland Resort! I love the Fall and Halloween but the Holidays are so special! The sights, sounds, decor, food, entertainment and merchandise really puts you in the holiday spirit! What’s not to love?!?

Since we homeschool, I’ve been trying to find ways to incorporate it into our love for Disney and the holidays are a perfect time because there’s so much going on at the Disneyland Resort to sneak in some learning while you’re having fun! Disneyschooling is a term that combines homeschooling and Disney. There are a lot of homeschoolers who happen to have annual passes or who just love Disney so much. I thought it would be useful to share with you guys some ways to make your visit educational! I’ll also share with you some things you shouldn’t miss.

Festival of Holidays at DCA

People celebrate the holidays in so many different ways around the world. Everyone knows about Christmas but there are numerous ways different cultures celebrate during this time of year. During the Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure Park, you can experience a few of those holidays through music, entertainment and food!

At the Festival Foods Marketplace, you can buy a Sip and Savor Pass for $56. You can pick up a Tasting Passport at several kiosks located throughout the Festival Marketplace. The Tasting Passport shows you what food items are available at what booth as well as a map of the marketplace. It is color coded to indicate which foods celebrate Christmas, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Navidad. What an amazing way to experience the foods of these cultures!

TIP: Instead of standing in line at each festival food booth, find the shortest line, order all the food items you want (use the tasting passport to see/keep track), then go pick up the food items at the booth with your receipt.




FOR KIDS: Be sure to check out the tables right by The Little Mermaid ride where kids can do Festival Crafts to celebrate the Festival of Holidays. They also have face painting for a fee. I love that they have cards that kids can decorate. On the back of the cards, there’s information about the holiday! The tables also have an informative placard for each holiday that is represented.

Holidays Begin at Disneyland

After learning more about the different holidays at Disney California Adventure Park, hop over to Disneyland for more festivities! Here are some of the things you shouldn’t miss!

Meet Santa

Don’t forget- you can meet Santa at Redwood Creek Challenge Trail at DCA. This is our favorite place to meet him. I just love the decorations there! This area is also so much fun. You can decorate cookies, play and run around. You can also meet Santa at Critter Country at Pooh’s Thotful Spot at Disneyland. It doesn’t cost anything to meet him. The hotels have Santa meet and greets available too! Be sure to have your Christmas list ready!

What are you looking forward to the most during this holiday season at Disneyland? I hope you get to visit from now until January 6, 2020! There’s so much to do and you will have a wonderful time!
