Entertainment at Disneyland
There is always something to see or do at
Disneyland, but Disneyland adds to this with nightly
entertainment during the peak season, and weekend
entertainment during the off-season. There is also
special entertainment during special occasions, such
as the Fourth of July and Christmas.
Fantasmic is held twice each night during the peak
season, and on weekends during the off-season.
The show takes place on Tom Sawyer’s Island, and
features many characters, music, and fireworks. For
the best seating possible, purchase tickets for
Fantasmic in advance, but note that free seating is
also available, and is included in your Disneyland
park admission price.
The Parade of Dreams features large colorful floats
accompanied by many Characters. This parade
takes place twice each day. During the parade, the
entire parade will stop three times to do a
choreographed show, and most of the Disney
Characters are portrayed in the Parade of Dreams.
In the Fantasyland Theater, you can see a musical
of Snow White. This show is held several times
throughout the day. This show should not be missed
especially if you love Snow White. Since the show
is held several times each day, reservations are not
These are just a few of the shows that are available
at Disneyland. Again, entertainment is an ongoing
thing at the park, with each day bringing something
new. One thing that you can definitely count on, of
course, is the fireworks! The fireworks show is held
late each night before the park closes for the day.
Even if you can’t stay for the fireworks, you can
probably see them out of your hotel window! Try to
get a view of the Fireworks from in front of Sleeping
Beauty’s Castle for the greatest effect. The fireworks
on the Fourth of July are out of this world.
To find out if there are any special shows or events
during the time that you will be at Disneyland, visit
the website, call the park, or ask your travel agent to
find this information out for you. You may also want
to inquire about special events during specific
months, so that you can plan your stay at
Disneyland for those days.
Most entertainment is provided free of charge, and is
part of your admission price. However, special
seating, or priority seating usually requires a fee, as
well as a reservation. Some events require an
admission price that is separate from your park
admission. Again, check the website, call the park,
or discuss events and fees with your travel agent
when planning your Disneyland vacation.
