Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving week! I was able to spend some time with my family and friends, and decorate for Christmas! Speaking of Christmas, there's a ton of Christmas celebrations happening at Walt Disney World this year, and you guys don't want to miss them. I've rounded up a few of my favorites for you, and some are even FREE!
1. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party
This one is obvious, but Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is super fun! Think about the Halloween party at Magic Kingdom. Now if you like that and love Christmas even more, chances are you're going to have a great time at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! There are special fireworks, exclusive character meet-and-greets, free cookies and hot chocolate, and so much more to take in at the party! Disney even makes it snow on Main Street USA! The Christmas party is an added cost, but you can get into Magic Kingdom with your party ticket starting at 4:00 PM! So I would make that day a pool/ resort day then head over to the party at 4:00.
2. Resort Hopping
One of my favorite things to do is take the monorail around to the different resorts. Disney does such a great job with decorating each resort and they always look so beautiful! My top three favorites to go see are The Grand Floridian because they have a GIANT gingerbread house that Cast Members work inside. I also love how sparkly their trees are. The other to resorts on my must-see list you might want to have your own car to get around or call a Minnie Van because the monorail doesn't go there. The Wilderness Lodge is the perfect place to celebrate Christmas. Everything is all cozy and warm and there's nothing like the massive Christmas tree in the lobby! The last resort is Animal Kingdom Lodge. I love this resort anyways, but to see their decorations with super cute animals and African inspired carvings is really special!
3. Candlelight Processional
Have you ever walked through World Showcase at night during Christmas and wondered why everyone was stopped in the America pavilion? It's probably because they were stopping to listen to the candlelight processional. Every night between Thanksgiving and Christmas Epcot brings in a celebrity narrator to tell the Christmas story of Jesus, along with a band, and choir of Disney Cast Members and a high school chorus! It's always really beautiful, and something that should be on your list of things to do this year at Christmas.
4. Visit Santa
The last thing is to visit Santa! You can catch Santa from Thanksgiving until a few days before Christmas at Hollywood Studios, and Disney Springs! I love going to see Santa at Hollywood Studios because the area they have set up for him is super cute and let's be honest, if you didn't see Santa did you really get what you wanted for Christmas?
Well friends, that it for today! Let me know in the comments what your favorite Christmas things to do at Disney are. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up with all of my Disney adventures!
