CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE. You can find me, until December 25th, drinking hot cocoa, binge watching all the episodes of Gilmore Girls that have snow in them, and waiting for everyone to put their lights up. This is by FAR my favorite time of year. Besides New York City (the ultimate Christmas destination), there’s nowhere better to celebrate than a Disney Park. If you’re headed to a Disney Park this holiday season, we’ve compiled a list of five things to do to make sure you have the perfect Christmas trip.shop my ears here!
-Head to Disney Springs
Going to Disney Springs for dinner, or some Christmas shopping? Good! They’ve been getting into the Christmas spirit more than ever, with fantastic offerings.
-The Christmas Tree Trail
This began last year, and has been brought back and expanded. We enjoyed the trail last year, and thought it had a lot of potential, which we hope Disney capitalizes on. The trail is essentially a collection of Disney themed Christmas trees, in a specific area, that you walk through. It’s nice to have new decor at Disney Springs, and a new activity.
-Santa Meet and Greet
Santa is located by The Christmas Tree Trail now, and is the perfect meet and greet for when you want to see Santa, but don’t have a park ticket.
-Check out Epcot’s expanded Festival of the Holidays
Epcot is making good on their threat to have a festival all year long (not really – but it feels that way, doesn’t it?), with its expanded Festival of The Holidays. There’s nothing that says Christmas, like eating until it hurts, so make your way around all the food and beverage booths around World Showcase.shop my favorite yoga pants here!
-The Holidays hit The Animal Kingdom
‘New this year at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the magic of nature will receive a holiday touch with the inclusion of Diwali, the holiday Festival of Lights in India, as part of the new live show UP! A Great Bird Adventure.’ (from WDW’s website).
-A decorated Toy Story Land
We can’t wait to see Disney’s newest land decked out for the holidays, as well as riding the rides with a holiday soundtrack in the background.
-Get merry at Magic Kingdom
There’s nowhere better to celebrate on property, than the most heavily decorated park, The Magic Kingdom. If you’re visiting between Christmas week, and New Years, the park will have free Christmas entertainment. Any other time, make sure to enjoy the decor and ambiance.
-See Hollywood Studios nighttime show
Hollywood Studios is bringing back ‘Sunset Seasons Greetings’, a projection show and snow shower (fake, of course), down Sunset Blvd, with the majority of the show being on Tower of Terror. We loved this show, and can’t wait to see it again.
