Hi! Thanks for purchasing the DFB Guide to the Walt Disney World Holidays e-Book! Read the 2020 Holiday Updates below. Happy Holidays from DFB!
Here at DFB we’re always facing a quandary: Since Disney doesn’t release holiday information until the week after Halloween, it’s difficult for us to release a truly comprehensive guide until then. However, our pre-order customers are eager to plan their trips and have consistently requested an earlier publish date.
So in an effort to provide as much information as possible, we put any and all details we have by October 30th into the guide, and then curate this UPDATES page for any details that come out after October 30th so that we can keep everyone in the know as they plan their holiday trips.
