Disneyland will celebrate Three Kings Day for the first time!

As you know for Latina Moms and their families Christmas is not over until January 6th when Three Kings Day is celebrated in many Latin American countries. It commemorates the day the three kings (the magi or “wise men”) followed the star to Bethlehem and presented their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

I’m so happy to inform you that for the first time, Disneyland Resort will observe Three Kings Day as part of the celebration of the holidays.

If you miss Holidays at Disney, you can still enjoy them, because all festivities and holiday fun, including beautiful décor throughout the park, nightly snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A., and the special “it’s a small world” Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday attractions were extended until January 8th.

Here’s what you’ll find during 3 Kings Day Weekend celebration at Disney.

• Disneyland will celebrate Three Kings Day, also known as Día de los Reyes Magos, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Jan. 6-8, 2012, with special décor, food and entertainment that showcases this Latin American holiday.

• The Three Kings Day celebration at Disneyland will be centered around Zocalo Park (Spanish for “Town Square”) in Frontierland. Walt Disney envisioned Frontierland as a showcase of America’s Western and Mexican heritage and this celebration will continue that vision.

• Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will appear in Fiesta costumes and other characters will join them: The Three Caballeros: Donald Duck, Jose Carioca and Panchito.

• Entertainment highlights include folklorico dance along with musical performances by the Grammy-winning Mariachi Divas.

• Bilingual activity hosts will join children in face-painting, coloring, crown decorating and other activities.

• Special food carts will appear in Zocalo Park for the occasion, serving Three Kings Day treats. The seasonal menu at Rancho del Zocalo restaurant includes tamales and Mexican hot chocolate.

It could be fun to dress up your children as Reyes Magos, don’t you think?
Can’t wait to celebrate El Dia de Los Reyes with Mickey Mouse!
