At Disney ¡Viva Navidad! you can meet Donald, Jose and Panchito – the Three Caballeros!

2. Live Music

Yes, technically this is a sound – not a sight – but look at those outfits! The traditional Mariachi, Norteño and other regional music groups who perform at Disney ¡Viva Navidad! are as much fun to watch as they are to listen to.

3. “Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party”

The “Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party” takes over Paradise Garden several times a day, featuring the Three Caballeros, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, Brazilian samba dancers and drummers and enormous mojiganga puppets.

4. Traditional Folklorico Dance

Each weekend, Disney ¡Viva Navidad! features traditional Folklorico dance troupes from across the region. These amazingly talented dancers are even more impressive with their brightly colored costumes. This is definitely a must-see.

5. Delicious Food

Okay, another one that’s more than a sight, but I can’t leave out the food. Paradise Garden Grill features a special menu this time of year exclusively for Disney ¡Viva Navidad! All of the dishes and desserts are incredible, but my favorite is the Torta al Pastor – fresh-made telera bread with al pastor pork, chorizo beans, lettuce, avocado mash and crema served with tortilla chips and salsa. See the complete menu in Rachel’s post here.
