Three Kings Day is January 6, and is a day of celebration for many cultures around the world. It marks the 12th & final day of Christmas, the day the 3 Kings brought gifts to the Baby Jesus.
Disneyland will be celebrating Three Kings Day again for the second year! This year the celebration will move to a new space, Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree in Frontierland, and will run January 4-6 from 10am to 6pm daily. The entertainment will include folkloric dancing and Mariachi musical performers, Disney characters if festive, colorful costumes and holiday photo opportunities! Guests can participate in crafts like face painting, crown making and coloring. And, of course, when at Disney, one must eat … sweet corn tamales with pineapple & cajeta (caramel sauce)…YUM!
