Tips for Making the Most of Holidays at Walt Disney World
I don’t know about you but I am so ready these cooler temperatures and all things festive! As we have been reporting this week, the holidays at Walt Disney World are in full swing with first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party of the season set to kick off this Friday, November 8.
If you are planning to celebrate the holidays at Walt Disney World this year, I have some great tips to pass along. So grab a mug full of hot cocoa and read on!
Candlelight Processional at Epcot
Nothing will get you more ready for the true reason of the season than the Candlelight Processional at Epcot. The event showcases celebrity narrators from the likes of Neil Patrick Harris and Whoopi Goldberg retelling the stirring story of Christmas. The celebrity narrator is joined by a choir and 50-piece orchestra.
Pro Tip: To make your holidays at Walt Disney World even more magical, I highly recommend taking advantage of f the Candlelight Processional Dining Package. Guests who make reservations for these packages will be able to dine at one of the select Epcot restaurants and then receive reserved seating in the American Gardens Theater for that evening’s Candlelight Processional.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a must-do for anyone enjoying the holidays at Walt Disney World! The separately-ticketed event held on select nights in the Magic Kingdom features party-exclusive merchan`dise, entertainment, food, and treats.
Pro Tip: If you have tickets for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, try and have the little ones take a nice long nap during the day and stay up late that night to catch the second “Once Upon a Christmastime Parade” during the party. The second parade is usually the least crowded and will give you time to enjoy the rides with shorter waits during the first run of the parade.
It’s also a great idea to catch the final “Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration” stage show of the night to enjoy the show with lighter crowds.
Additional Opportunities to Enjoy Extra Magic during the Holidays at Walt Disney World
But, that’s not all! There’s magic to be found around every corner this holiday season. From holiday tours to sleigh rides and holiday fun at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney Springs, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during the holidays at Walt Disney World!
Some of my must-dos while visiting Walt Disney World during the holidays is the Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs and making a visit to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to check out the larger-than-life gingerbread house. But don’t stop there, you can spend a whole day just going around to the various Walt Disney World Resort Hotels to check out the various holiday displays.
