There has been a lot going on at the Disneyland Resort, and fans are definitely noticing, both in the decorations and festivities for Halloween, as well as the refurbishment of some of the rides. Disney is known for going all-out for the Halloween and Christmas holidays, and this year is no exception. Every year, the Disneyland Resort decks out certain attractions around Christmastime, most notably Haunted Mansion, “it’s a small world,” and Jungle Cruise.

The holiday season at Disneyland lasts from November 11, 2022, to January 8, 2023. And just like every year, some attractions will be closing soon for holiday overlay preparation, while others are briefly closing for general maintenance.

For the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, fans are speculating it will be closed to decorate for Christmas. As user beastman_robert put it:

They also put Santa and a sweet shop in there for the holidays

User superjanna also chimed in:

The Santa setup is soooo cute, excellent spot if you want pictures with him (I think Grand Californian lobby is still tops though, and usually a very short wait)

According to other commenters, the attraction “Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!” has been having ongoing maintenance issues and was recently refurbished in September.

User arudegala added,

It was up and down all day yesterday while we were at the park. We finally caught it at Oogie Boogie Bash. Hopefully they are going to fix whatever issues they’re having!

Other attractions currently being refurbished are Indiana Jones Adventure, which will be closed November 14-16, and Tarzan’s Treehouse, which is currently being rethemed into a not-yet announced attraction.
