Disneyland Resort embraces Latino culture for holidays

 

California’s Disneyland Resort is ready to celebrate the holiday season.

"Disney ¡Viva Navidad!" takes over Paradise Gardens in Disney California Adventure with a daily celebration inspired by Latino culture and holiday traditions.

“We have authentic food, dance, and music … based and inspired on the wonderful traditions of the Mexican culture during the holiday season,” said Mary Niven, vice president of Disney California Adventure Park and Guest Services.

“Mickey and Minnie are here … and they are in their Mexican finest attire and welcoming all our guests,” said Niven.

Disney also debuted the “World of Color − Winter Dreams.”  The show includes new music and special effects, including new methods for utilizing the massive “stage” of water, color and light that comes to life with the power of nearly 1,200 fountains.

“[It] features Olaf, this lovable snowman from the upcoming Disney movie, ‘Frozen,’ and we’re so excited to have him host the show for us, “ said Niven.

The celebration begins November 15 and runs through January 6.
