Classic Rides Transformed for the Holiday Season

Your favorite classic rides have been given a holiday makeover!

1. Haunted Mansion

Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas has transformed this ride, merging Christmas and Halloween! You can even marvel at the custom made cake that appears every year in the Haunted Mansion Ballroom.

2. It’s a Small World

The classic “It’s a Small World” song is replaced with “Jingle Bells” and covered with more than 50,000 twinkling lights!

Something new this year, guests will experience 3 different smells during the ride; Asia (the smell of Japanese cherry blossoms), South America (cinnamon scents), and the South Seas (tropical smells of coconut)!

These smells are in addition to the European smells of fresh pine trees and peppermint. Try to get to this ride earlier since the line is usually the longest!

3. Sleeping Beauty Castle

Although not a ride, the Sleeping Beauty Castle is transformed into a beautiful glowing, snow capped castle! This year is especially special because of the castle transformation that took place during the summer.

Enjoy these Disneyland classics with a twist!
