  • Hi there, Meredith!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel! It sounds like your family is going to have an amazing surprise this Christmas! You must be so excited!

    Christmastime is one of my very favorite times of the year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! The Theme Parks and Resorts are all dressed up in their holiday best. The holiday decorations are absolutely phenomenal! Some of my family's favorite must-do activities include:

    1) Visit the The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    2) Take the Resort monorail from Magic Kingdom Park and get off at each of the 3 Resorts to look at their gorgeous Christmas trees and decorations. Don't miss the life-sized Gingerbread House at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa or the the giant Gingerbread Christmas Tree at Disney's Contemporary Resort!

    3) Stop by Magic Kingdom Park to have a visit with Santa Clause and to view Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade!

    4) Take your time. There is so much to see and do at Walt Disney World and it's fun to take your time and savor each thing. Grab a hot Starbucks beverage on Main Street, U.S.A. and just take in all the sights.

    Check out the online calendar for New Year's Eve and see what is listed there for each Park. It will also be very important for you to pick up a Times Guide at each Park because they will have detailed information on anything special taking place each day, and especially for New Year's Eve!

    I hope this helps, Meredith! Please don't hesitate to let us know if we can help with any other questions you have!

    Wishing you a Pixie Dusted vacation!
