No one does the holidays better than Disney! Disneyland & California Adventure is a must-do destination with your kids. Main St. is dressed to the hilt with full fall and winter decorations.

Skating outdoors with your family is a great way to create laughter and memories for a lifetime. Ice-skating to Christmas music and hot cocoa will surely get you in the holiday spirit.
