    Alicia from NE Asked

    Hello - We are coming to DW 11/19-11/26 - - Any recommendations for coming over the Holiday season? Will it be decorated for christmas? Also how soon can one book reservations for a mean at Magic Kingdom and what is the best way to book that? Call?

    Hi Alicia,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am excited to hear that you are going to visit the Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season!

    First, if you have not already created a My Disney Experience Account, do so as soon as possible. Once you create that account, you can link your theme park tickets, dining reservations and Fast Pass+ selections to that account. And I definitely suggest that you make dining reservations in advance. We typically make our dining reservations online 180 days in advance, especially for character meals. 

    There are a number of different ways to celebrate the holidays while you are there. My two favorites are Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party which is a special ticketed event and the Candlelight Processional. The storytelling and music at the Candlelight Processional remind me of how good and kind the world can be. When I last saw the Candlelight Processional, Anthony Mackie was the celebrity narrator and he was outstanding. Magic Kingdom simply shimmers with light during the Christmas Party. Feel free to find your best holiday gear and wear it - your pictures will be fantastic!

    Alicia, remember that some restaurants may serve special Thanksgiving Day meals. Check the Disney Parks Blog for the latest updates for this year, but, in the meantime, here is a past article on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day Ideas for Dining at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
