Disney Vacation For ChristmasThe holidays at the Walt Disney World® Resort are celebrated in true Disney fashion, and a Disney vacation for Christmas is a perfect gift for that special someone who wants to experience all the festivities. This magical time of year is enjoyable by itself, but throw in some Disney magic, and you've got "that most wonderful time of year." Here is a quick sampling of events during the holiday season at the Walt Disney World® Resort:
Magic Kingdom® Park
Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party -This special after hours event is a magical time when Disney closes the park to a select number of guests. While it is a "hard-ticket" event, meaning there is an additional cost, it is well worth the price of admission in order to be in the Magic Kingdom® Park for several hours, with low crowds, and with many special activities and events. A special parade and fireworks presentation can be viewed, hot chocolate & cookies are served complimentary throughout the event, and don't forget, most of the rides are open. This is also a great time to catch some special stage shows as well as riding your favorite ride with a greatly reduced wait time. This event is only run on select nights, so check with Disney for details.
Holidays Around the World and Candlelight Processional - This theme park celebrates the season by having its many countries in the World Showcase exhibit their many unique holiday festivities, stories and wonderful food options. Also, in the America Gardens Theatre, you have the option of listening to guest narrators, a mass choir, and a full orchestra as they present the Candlelight Processional. This is a special retelling of the Christmas story, and is a very popular event. If you wait in the "stand-by" line, you may have to wait for up to 2-3 hours for a seat on busier nights. Another option to look into is the Candlelight Processional Dinner Package. For a fixed price (based on the restaurant you choose), you are able to enjoy a wonderful meal, and you'll get "priority seating" at the show. This cuts your wait time down quite a bit, but you'll still want to get in the "Dinner Package" line at least 30-45 minutes before the show.
Disney's Hollywood Studios™
Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights - Millions of sparkling lights shine in falling snow in this theme park, in the the Streets of America backlot area.The history of this display goes back to Little Rock Arkansas in 1986, when businessman Jennings Osborne strung up 1000 red lights for his 6-year-old daughter. The display grew every year, so much so that-- by the time it reached 3 million lights-- the neighbors took legal action!Luckily the whole thing moved to a permanent home in Orlando. Now thousands of visitors enjoy 5 million lights on trees, carousels, Mickey, Santa, and lots more, plus "Florida snow".
Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park
Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade - "Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade" blends the spirit of Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park with the spirit of the season into a holiday offering full of jump, joy and jive! It's a jinglin' good time with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Chip 'n Dale and the gang on parade in their holiday yuletide best. This is much like the regular parade, however, the fun changes to it for the holiday season are worth viewing.
As you can see, the holidays at the Walt Disney World® Resort are truly a celebration of the season. So, how do you enjoy these wonderful events? With a Disney vacation for Christmas, of course!
