Christmas in July at Walt Disney World Resort! Time to start planning!

 

 

xmas2If your dreams include more sugar plum fairies than beach balls and sunscreen, then you’ll want to join us as we prepare for the most magical time of the year at Walt Disney World Resort. Yes, it’s Christmas in July, and it’s the perfect time to begin planning your Disney holiday vacation.

Perhaps one of the most beloved events of the season is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park. The magical party will begin on November 8 and run through December 22, 2019, on select nights. Brand new this year is Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks show. The holiday nighttime spectacular will include some of your favorite seasonal songs such as “Joy to the World,” “Deck the Halls” and even “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.” Make new memories with your family as you reminisce about the holidays of the past all while enjoying this festive event, hosted by Minnie Mouse.

This enchanting, special ticketed event will also allow guests to meet some of their favorite Disney Characters decked out in their holiday best. Special character experiences have also been known to take place during the party, including Jack Skellington dressed as the one-and-only Sandy Claws.

Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is another holiday tradition not to be missed. The 11 World Showcase nations will proudly display their country’s magical decorations, and of course they will be serving up their delectable food at the expanded Holiday Kitchens. Guests will also enjoy live musical productions featuring costumed performers that will bring time-honored holiday traditions to life. “Candlelight Processional” is another joyous event that takes place in Epcot. Join celebrity narrators, such as Neil Patrick Harris and Whoopi Goldberg, as they tell the Christmas story accompanied by an amazing orchestra and spectacular choir.

This year guests will not want to miss the brand-new holiday entertainment and decorations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. From Discovery Island to Pandora – The World of Avatar, festive holiday lights and celebrations will transform every land into an extra magical location. In DinoLand, U.S.A., you won’t want to miss rockin’ around Truck-O-Saurus at the Holiday Hoopla Dance Party with Chip ‘n Dale!

And don’t forget the popular “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” that is returning to Disney’s Hollywood Studios November 8, 2019. The holiday spectacular will run through January 5, 2020.
