In honor of Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration, Paint the Night is a parade that takes place on Main Street U.S.A. nightly. The 40-minute show, which begins at 8:45, includes fantastical floats, characters (including Anna and Elsa), music (guaranteed to get stuck in your head) and special effects for a true “wow” factor the whole family will love. After the parade, stick around for the Disneyland Forever Fireworks at 9:30.
Sidewalk seating is available for Paint the Night — snag a spot early (people stake their claim a few hours in advance). You might also consider one of the Paint the Night Dining Packages that include preferred seating for the parade. The traditional package includes a three-course dinner at Blue Bayou Restaurant, and the On-the-Go Dining Package includes a quick meal at Aladdin’s Oasis.
