3 Thoughts on “Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure 2017

  1. sharon hemmeter on 6 November, 2017 at 11:24 am said:

    did this last year, it cost me a lot of money. most of the items I wanted to taste were sold out and I ended up eating food I didn’t like or couldn’t eat because it was to spicy. I was so disappointed.

  2. I would love to know the dates of upcoming events so we can plan to be there for “big things” – like the fun runs, Dapper Dan days, just anything and everything. We were there for the Flower & Garden Festival in 2017, we plan on being there Nov 26-Dec 3, but besides Candlelite Processional we know of no other special events during that time.

    • You’ll be able to find a lot of events on Disney’s website. They’ll have Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in Magic Kingdom and other events in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney Springs.
