Disneyland Christmas Entertainment

During the month of December, does Disneyland do their Christmas nighttime spectaculars every night of the week? Is the Christmas parade done every day? Also, is the parade in the afternoon or at night before the fireworks?

You can pull up park calendar from December 2017 and see the likely schedule for 2018, meaning it will follow the same pattern

Welcome to the forums James T,

Disneyland will offer a nightly Fireworks show for Christmastime at Disneyland which usually runs mid Nov through to the first week of Jan each year, and a Daily Christmas Parade that would be earlier during daylight hours.

Fantasmic would usually only be on weekends for most of Dec, but it depends on when in that month you would be visiting? Their is usually a nightly World of Color show year round.

You can get some idea of what will likely be happening as said, by looking at past years info

Disney California Adventure has an afternoon street party, Viva Navidad!, and the nightly World of Color (holiday version). Also the park has the Festival of Holidays, featuring daytime entertainment from a variety of cultures and food booths.

Disneyland Park also has the Candlelight Processional on the first Saturday and Sunday in December.

Here is the December 2017 calendar from WDWinfo.

2018 should be similar if not identical.

It looks like fireworks every night, but Fantasmic only weekends in December until the schools let out for Christmas vacation.

We saw the parade last year during the Christmas season. It was really good. They had floats and people were even on skates and music. It is worth grabbing a seat early on the sidewalk.
