ANAHEIM, Calif. – This holiday season, the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort is brimming with bold and brightly colored trees, tasty treats, holiday entertainment and unique shopping options for the entire family.
- Let it Glow: The Downtown Disney District will be all aglow for the season with an all-new visual experience, “Let it Glow,” bringing eclectic light and new colors to the holidays. A must-do experience, this vibrant showcase features 200 UV glow trees along the promenade and a distinctive new seasonal look for both day and night. The solid-colored trees in florescent shades of blue, green, yellow, orange and pink vary in size, with the tallest measuring approximately 15 feet, and the smallest at four feet. Unlike traditional Christmas trees, there’s not a single ornament, as their brightness makes them brilliant. More than 70 glow rings adorn the ficus trees throughout Downtown Disney District, adding to the neon elements at night. More than 10,000 individual plants and 30 topiaries will live around the trees to further enhance the planters, complemented by 24 hanging baskets filled with poinsettias, cyclamen and dusty miller. “Let it Glow” begins Nov. 22, 2019 and will be on display through Jan 5, 2020.
- Sips, Eats and Sweets: Visitors may enjoy a bite at an open-air café, sip hand-crafted cocktails, indulge in gourmet desserts or savor an exquisite sit-down dinner in the Downtown Disney District. During the holiday season, a number of the district’s restaurants and stops offer seasonal menus and sweet treats such as Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, Catal Restaurant, Uva Bar, Marceline’s Confectionery, Salt & Straw scoop shop, Wetzel’s Pretzels and Starbucks, to name a few.
- Holiday Shopping: There are scores of stores and kiosks to browse apparel, jewelry, Disney art, plush and collectibles. World of Disney is a must for Disney fans with 40,000 square-feet of Disneyland Resort-themed toys, apparel and souvenirs in an interactive environment sprinkled with pixie dust surprises. PANDORA Jewelry offers limited-edition collections for holiday shoppers and Sanuk is a spot for cozy footwear, while Disney Home, The Disney Dress Shop, Sephora, The LEGO Store and Curl Surf all offer unique gift items. New family-owned boutiques that joined the Downtown Disney District this year, Rinse Bath & Body Co. offering all natural skincare products and Sugarboo & Co. featuring inspirational treasures, are both ideal for gift-giving.
- Entertainment: The Downtown Disney District comes alive with nightly entertainment featuring four a cappella groups – Holiday Harmony, The Sugar Plums, The Moonrays and Jingle 5 – during the month of December, plus other musicians, magicians and talented artists throughout the holiday season.
