    What special events occur between Christmas and New Years? Is Mickeys parade?

    Hi Ashley,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. And now, let me give you some tips to help you plan the perfect vacation.

    My family loves Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. Christmas time is our favorite time of the year to visit. Yes, it is the busiest time of the year, but with patience you can realize how wonderful this time is. So what happens during this time? Oh boy, so much!

    The Theme Parks are usually open early and close very late. I remember a few years back riding Dumbo the Flying Elephant at the stroke of midnight on December 24th. The decorations are amazing across the whole Resort and you definitely want to check out the lights and Christmas trees, not only on the parks, but on the Resort hotels too. Special parades and fireworks will also take place. One of my family's favorite event is Candlelight Processional. An amazing choir and orchestra join a celebrity narrator who will retell the Story of Christmas. It's truly magical.

    One last tip: make sure you book a Candlelight Dining Package. After an amazing meal, you will receive tickets with guaranteed seating to the show. Happy Holidays!
