We are in the heart of Halloween season, and also in Southern California, but that hasn’t stopped snow from making its way to Disneyland Resort. Guests visiting the Happiest Place on Earth will now see snow adorning Sleeping Beauty Castle as the Park prepares for its holiday season.
Holidays at the Disneyland Resort do not officially begin until November 12, but getting ready for that time of year takes weeks of planning and days of slowly incorporating holiday elements into Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney.
Instagrammer Five Fires YouTube (@thecalibae) shared pictures of snow atop the blue spires of Sleeping Beauty Castle seen at Disneyland.

David Vaughn (@davidvaughn) also shared a gorgeous picture of the snowy castle in his Instagram stories.
Right now, the snow is only covering the center roof of the castle, but as we get closer to the holiday season kickoff, the snow will begin to cover more of the roof and turrets.
Here is more information on the holidays at Disneyland Resort from Disney Parks Blog:
At Disneyland park, nostalgic holiday magic shines brightly with the glistening Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle and a 60-foot Christmas tree on Main Street, U.S.A. Both make wonderful photo locations for that cherished memory of your Holiday visit.
