As part of “Halfway to the Holidays,” the Disney Parks Blog has announced the fireworks spectacular “Believe…In Holiday Magic” will once again light up the night over the Disneyland Park, accompanied by holiday music and a magical “snowfall.”

Guests can experience the Disney version of snow at several locations around the park, including Main Street U.S.A., near the Rivers of America, and just outside “it’s a small world.”
