Holidays at Walt Disney World

There is nothing like the holidays at Walt Disney World. It takes the magic of the season to a whole other level. Every square inch of the theme parks are decorated in their holiday finest and the resorts are a sight to see with decor specific to each location. There’s even a 60 foot Christmas tree inside Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Join Mickey and the Gang for a Christmas celebration like no other. Magic Kingdom park lights up with excitement as Cinderella’s Castle shimmers in an icy glow. You can eat sugar cookies and sip hot cocoa as you stroll down Main Street USA in the SNOW! Plus, many favorite attractions get a holiday makeover…the Jingle Jungle Cruise is particularly fun. Cap off the night with a festive fireworks spectacular!

Holidays in Toy Story Land

Andy’s toys are ready for the holiday season and have decorated the backyard to celebrate. You’ll find Green Alien ornaments and cardboard antlers on Rex, plus the attractions all have a little holiday theme added in.

See a Life-Size Gingerbread House!

In the lobby of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you will find a life-size gingerbread house. The pastry team has been hard at work baking, constructing and decorating the house, which also contains The Bake Shop. There you will find gingerbread ornaments, cookies, and gingerbread house kits, all made using a classic gingerbread recipe from Austria.


This is just a small taste of all of the festivities available at the Walt Disney World Resort this year. Why not forego all the toys and games that are cluttering up your house this year and give the gift your family will remember for a lifetime?!

There are great deals available this holiday season and I am here to help you plan that memorable vacation.
