    Hi, we are able to make dinner reservations 60 days in advance. Do you think we may expect WDW Christmas mass times soon so that dinner Reservations may be planned accordingly? Thank you much appreciated!

    Hiya Alexis! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Oh boy! You are visiting Walt Disney World Resort during such an exciting and jolly time! The Parks will welcome you with beautiful decorations, music, and lights for the holiday season. Make sure to visit the delicious and delightful Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to enjoy the vision that is the giant gingerbread house located right in the center of the lobby! Each year the bakers at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa work hard to create a masterpiece filled with surprises. You can buy a shingle to enjoy from the little gingerbread shop right next to it! My dear friend Prince found that Walt Disney World Resort has shared the delicious recipe for their gingerbread for you to try at home! 

    Strangely, details have not been revealed yet for the dates and location of any Christmas services. I expect news to be released in the next few weeks. We do have information from last year: a Catholic Mass was held at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in the Fiesta Ballroom on Christmas Eve at 9:15 PM and on Christmas Day at 10:30 AM. Disney's Contemporary Resort was also host to a Catholic Mass in the Fantasia Ballroom on Christmas Day at 8 AM and 10:30 AM. There is a possibility that it could be similar this year but I cannot guarantee it. If you wish, there are a few Catholic churches nearby including Corpus Christi Catholic church which is a 12-minute drive away, and Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe which is a 15-minute drive. 

    I hope this helps. I suggest you check back again soon as things could change in a day!

    Happy Planning!
