Disneyland Resort l Entertainment
Disney theme parks are much more than just rides, shops, and dining locations. They also offer a wide variety of live entertainment that include stage shows, parades, fireworks, street performers, and bands. This section is devoted to these entertainment options.


The Geek's Suggestions
To fully experience a Disney theme park you really should check out the live entertainment. The shows are usually excellent and well worth the time spent. Also they offer great ways to avoid lines during peak hours of the day, or just a way to relax for a while.

Disneyland Resort Entertainment Choices

Parades/Shows:Disney parades and shows are usually unique experiences that really add to your day at the parks.

Seasonal Offerings: For special seasons (like the holidays or summer) Disney brings in even more entertainment to keep the crowds occupied and locals coming back for more.
