For those looking to extend their holiday fun after Christmas, Disneyland is bringing back Three Kings Day this January 4th through the 6th, from 10 am to 6 pm. The event will be held at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree in Frontierland. This is the same site that hosted both the Halloween Jamboree and the Christmas Jingle Jangle Jamboree.
Three Kings Day pays tribute to Western and Mexican heritage and includes folklorico dancing, mariachi, Disney characters in costume, and special craft events for children. We’ve attended both of the previous Jamborees for Halloween and Christmas, and I thought both were excellent additions to any Disney plans you might make. I expect the same to be the case for Three Kings Day, and even more so for those of you who find the event culturally relevant.
Here’s a snap shot of the schedule of events from the Disney Parks Blog.

Go See Three Kings Day!
It’s a shame the event is just a three day affair, as it doesn’t give one much opportunity to catch it. But the Fresh Baked Team is planning to attend on the 5th, and will hope to bring you our best photos and videos as usual!
