Christmas at Walt Disney World: It's the Most Wonderful Time at the Ears! by Mary Vaughan
Walt Disney World is already magical, but during the holidays it takes that magic to a whole new level. Here are some things you can see at each of the four theme parks only during this time of year, besides the breathtaking decorations, of course.
- Magic Kingdom: "A Frozen Holiday Wish" where Cinderella's Castle is transformed into an ice palace, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on select nights, Jingle Cruise, snow on Main St. and even Santa!
- Epcot: International Festival of the Holidays, which includes holiday traditions at each of the 11 nations including storytellers, live Christmas music, Holiday Kitchens, Chip & Dale's Christmas Tree Spree, and the ever-popular Candlelight Processional featuring celebrity narrators each night.
- Hollywood Studios: Sunset Seasons Greetings where colorful projections and lasers take over the Tower of Terror, "Jingle Bell Jingle Bam" with iconic music, fireworks and projections over the Chinese Theatre for a nighttime celebration, and you can catch Santa on Sunset Blvd.
- Animal Kingdom: Diwali, the holiday Festival of Lights in India, as part of the new live show "UP!" A Great Bird Adventure, Santa Goofy, and a 3-foot gingerbread display.
Characters all have on their seasonal best for your photos and the holiday goodies and drinks at the bakeries and restaurants are festive and delectable! Don't forget to check out the decorations at the Deluxe resorts including giant Christmas trees, more lights than you can imagine and the life-sized 17-foot gingerbread bread house at The Grand Floridian.
