    Hi Anna, thanks for all the great advice! Planning a post-Thaksgiving trip - I've heard about campfire carolers at AK's camp minnie-mickey. are these performers still at the park between Thanksgiving and New Years? Thank you!

    Hi, Sabrina!  Thank you so much for your question!

    There is no place more magical than Walt Disney World during the holidays, and you've picked the best time to go!  You will find all of the holiday festivities in full swing between Thanksgiving and New Year's, including the carolers at Camp Minnie-Mickey, ummm, I mean Santa Goofy's Holiday Village at Camp Minnie-Mickey!

    While I can't promise you carolers, because you just never know when things might be changed to make room for even more holiday magic, there have been in recent years carolers, Santa Goofy, and some of your other character friends, just waiting to share their holiday spirit with you!  We also really enjoy the Jingle Jungle Parade at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  

    Try and squeeze in a trip to EPCOT for the amazing Candlelight Processional, one of the most inspiring holiday performances anywhere.  You can also visit Santa from around the world during your visit to EPCOT.  

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is home to the Spectacle of the Dancing Lights, a holiday light display like no other.  You'll be able to see this nightly.  Oh, and the forecast almost always calls for SNOW!

    One last holiday event you may want to look into is Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom.  This is a separately ticketed event to a holiday party Disney style.  You'll find holiday shows, a wonderful Christmas parade, fireworks, and more.

    Enjoy planning your vacation, and I hope your holidays are positively magical!
