(KGTV) — Sure it's only July, but Disneyland and California Adventure are already gearing up to make their parks the merriest places on Earth this year.

The fun begins Nov. 8 and runs through Jan. 6, bringing back a whole lot of holiday cheer, treats, and attractions to the Anaheim theme parks.

At Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty's Castle will take on a glistening, wintery facade for the holidays. The park is also bringing back its "Believe in Holiday Magic" fireworks spectacular and "A Christmas Fantasy" parade.

Plus, riders on the "It's a Small World" and "Haunted Mansion" attractions will recognize the return of holiday-themed fun on the rides.

At California Adventure, the "World of Color — Season of Light" show will dazzle audiences with lights, lasers, and water and fire features bringing animation to life.

The park will also bring back its Festival of Holidays, which delivers the sights, sounds, and delicious smells of the holidays from around the world to park goers.

Those who visit Cars Land will also recognize holiday magic return on "Luigi's Joy to the Whirl" and "Mater's Jingle Jamboree."

Both parks will also bring back their delicious holiday treats and snacks, and holiday-themed merchandise for visitors.
