Mickey Mouse and all of his friends are dressed up for the celebration along with the Three Caballeros: Donald Duck, Panchito from Mexico and José Carioca from Brazil. Your family can have a keepsake photo taken with your favorite Disney character to cherish the memories of the holidays at Disneyland.

Multiple times throughout the day the “Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party” will get your family in the holiday spirit with a festive float, street tricycles, flag-bearers, folkloric dancers, and more. There will also be traditional Mariachi, Norteno and other cultural music performed daily at the Paradise Garden bandstand.




When you kids are not dancing to the festive music, interacting with their favorite Disney character or admiring the beautiful decorations, they will have a blast with the fun arts and crafts. In a special area of the celebration, there will be storytelling, face-painting and crafts happening throughout the day.


What would a cultural celebration be without food? Guests can savor in a wide variety of delicious dishes in Paradise Garden including pozole (hearty stew), chicken mole drumettes, pescado (fish) Veracruzano, champurrado (Mexican-style hot chocolate), sweet tamales, torta al pastor (pork sandwich), buñuelos (deep-fried sweet treat) and choco flan.



Vivia Navidad will be at Disney California Adventure Park in Paradis Gardens area until January 6th.

We attended a media event at Disneyland where we experienced the celebration as a guest of Disney.
