Creating Family Memories at the Fashion Island Tree Lighting

We attended as a guest of Fashion Island


One of our favorite family holiday memories is attending the annual Fashion Island Tree Lighting ceremony hosted by the Disneyland Resort. It is a magical way to kick-off the holiday season with Mickey, Minnie, and all our favorite Disney characters. Our family started the evening by having dinner together before walking over to the beautiful Christmas tree in the center of Fashion Island where the celebration would take place.





The kids were sipping on cups of hot chocolate and ate holiday cookies together as we waited until the show was ready to begin. As the sun began to set, it was time for the celebration to begin. There was dancing and singing before our favorite Disney characters joined the celebration on the stage in front of the tree. This year, there was an added surprise as Olaf came to sing our favorite songs from the movie “Frozen.” Everyone in the audience came together and sang “Let it Go” right before millions of snowflakes started to fall over the crowd. The moment brought chills down my spine witnessing families from all over Southern California coming together to share this special, memorable moment together.




Finally, it was time to light the Christmas tree. The entire crowd counted together 3…2…1…and then it happened. The beautiful Christmas Tree sparkled with millions of twinkling lights, and will be a place where families will capture special holiday memories with their cameras throughout the holiday season.





Don’t miss visiting Fashion Island during the holiday season where your family can create special memories together by dining, shopping, visiting Santa and capturing special photos throughout the shopping center. There are more holiday tree lighting events happening throughout the season in Orange County.
