  • Hi, Karlee!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel with this fabulous question! What an exciting vacation you are going to have to kick off 2015! I have a feeling that you might get a different answer depending on which one of us answered it, but I'm thrilled to share my thoughts!

    I have been to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort for both holidays, and I'll be honest with you, I absolutely LOVE both holidays at both Parks. They are each dressed up in their holiday finest and everything is so gorgeous! It's really a very special experience to have because there is no other place on earth more magical! You just won't believe your eyes!

    Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland is simply gorgeous draped in holiday lights and Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park is just magnificent with the Dreamlights glistening and changing color. You'll be able to see "snow" on Main Street USA at both Parks, which is one of my most favorite experiences EVER! There are also special experiences going on at all four of the Theme Parks at Walt Disney World. Epcot has Santa visiting from each of the countries in the World Showcase and you can catch Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    Here's the great news, all of the Christmas decorations and experiences will remain through the New Year, so you'll be able to see the decorations no matter which Park you choose! If I did need to make the choice, I would choose to spend Christmas at Walt Disney World and New Year's Eve at Disneyland.

    I sure hope this helps with your decision, Karlee! Please feel free to write back in if we can help with any other questions you have!

    Wishing you Pixie Dusted vacation planning!
