If you’re heading to the Disneyland Resort this holiday season, be sure to check out the entertainment, shopping and fun going on in the Downtown Disney District!

Once again, the Downtown Disney District becomes the Downtown Disney Winter Village, featuring chalets and carts offering a variety of holiday gift ideas. You’ll find Star Wars-themed items at World of Disney; crystal art at Arribas Brothers; personalized items at You Name It; and personalized holiday ornaments from Ice-Land Workshop. This year Ghirardelli will have a seasonal store across from Rainforest Café where you can find a variety of delicious treats. A Working to Give/ACT Anaheim chalet will offer handmade holiday stockings with all proceeds going to Accelerate Change Together.


Returning this year is Olaf’s Frozen Ice Rink between ESPN Zone and Earl of Sandwich. The whole family will enjoy skating on this “Frozen”-themed 50-by-90-foot rink while listening to holiday and “Frozen”-themed music. The rink is open Monday through Thursday, 3-10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 2-11 p.m.; and Sunday 2-10 p.m. The price for skating (including tax and skate rental) is $17 per adult and $15 per child (ages 3-9).

There will also be a full lineup of special entertainment for the holidays at the Downtown Disney District. Live performances by Holiday Carolers will take place nightly December 4-25 and a 40s Jazz/Pop Vocal Group will perform December 25-January 1. Horse & Carriage rides will be offered November 27 through January 2. Appearances by Duncan Yo-Yo experts, and the Houdini Magic Shop Show are also on the schedule.
