Summer may have just officially started, but we are already thinking of the Holidays at Walt Disney World!
Sounds crazy, I know, but we’re just over 180 days — six months! — until the holidays are in full swing, and NOW is the time to make dining plans for your holiday meals — but it’s also the time to consider what other fun activities you’ll enjoy at Walt Disney World this holiday season.
To jumpstart your planning, today we’re talking about some of our favorite Tips from the DFB Guide to the Holidays at Disney World: Three Holiday Events that you can’t miss!
And speaking of the DFB Guide, don’t get to take advantage of our 180 Days Til Christmas Sale! Through June 28, we’re offering three great ways to save when you pre-order the 2015 DFB Guide to the Holidays at Walt Disney World. Check out all of the details about the sale here!
Now, let’s take a look at some of our favorite holiday events that you should definitely plan on working into your Disney holiday calendar…
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
Snow on Main Street USA and life-size Toy Soldiers? That’s part of your reality when you attend the long-running and beloved Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
This hard-ticketed event takes place during select evenings from November 8 until December 18, 2015, this year, and brings all of the joy and warm fuzzy feeling of Christmas and the holiday season to Magic Kingdom.
During the event, guests enjoy special entertainment and character meet and greets. Complimentary cocoa and cookies fuel you up for all the fun. And there are TONS of special, exclusive treats that you can enjoy only during the Party!
And be sure to grab a front row seat for Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, which features Santa as well as some of your favorite Disney holiday characters. And, of course Anna and Elsa will be there!
Holidays Around the World
Looking to observe the holidays with international flair? Then an evening at Epcot for Holidays Around the World will fit the bill nicely. Enjoy a stroll around Epcot’s beautiful World Showcase as storytellers from around the globe share seasonal tales within several of the pavilions — free with Epcot admission!
And if you didn’t score a seat for the Candlelight Processional, no worries. You can still catch some or all of the performance from the walkway behind the American Gardens Theater.
And don’t forget the delicious food! You’ll find lots of treats, inspired by the flavors and traditions of the countries represented in World Showcase.
That’s one of the best ways to get into the spirit, we think. 🙂
Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights
Our final stop on our must-do list is Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Because I don’t care how old you are — you are a child again the moment you set foot into the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.
You’ll find the explosion of color — millions of dancing lights lining everything! — on the Streets of America in the back of the Park. This display has continued to grow and has become a beloved tradition for Disney fans visiting during the holiday season.
The event is opened to all park goers, so no worries about purchasing an extra ticket (though you WILL want to plan ahead for when you attend — the crowds get thick!). But be assured, you’ll also find plenty of special treats to enjoy as you take in all the color!
Here’s hoping the fun Gumdrop Cocktail returns in 2015!
