    Aside from MVMCP and osbourne lights what are some other holiday themed things to do and see at WDW parks? We wil be there this dec 2015 thank you love the panel!!

    Thanks so much, Tracie! I am also planning on visiting in December. It is my favorite time to visit because the weather is nice, the parks and resorts are festively decorated, and if you plan it just right, the crowd levels are low. Besides the Osbourne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights presented by Siemens, and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, (which is my favorite thing to do), you can head over to Epcot for Holidays Around the World. This is a fun and educational way to learn about how countries from all over the world celebrate the holiday season. You will be able to walk around the World Showcase and be immersed in the music, food, and traditional stories of each country and learn a little bit about how they celebrate. Also in Epcot at the America Gardens Theater, is the Candlelight Processional. A celebrity will narrate the story of Christmas with a little help from an orchestra and choir. It is a beautiful and moving experience and always gets me in the holiday spirit.

    Another of my favorite things is the Jingle Cruise. The Jungle Cruise gets a makeover for the season with holiday themed jokes and decorations. Even the caged tarantula in the queue wears a little Santa hat. It is a must do for my son and I who are huge Jungle Cruise fans.

    I also love resort hopping because they are each decorated so differently and they stick to theming. My favorite is Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. There is usually a huge gingerbread house in the lobby that also doubles as a little shop that sells gingerbread shingles and other treats.

    Of course there is also the Dream Lights on Cinderella Castle at night and the special Holiday version of Wishes. There are so many great holiday themed things to do, and be sure to keep updated on the latest Disney news for any new holiday experiences by visiting the Disney Parks Blog. 

    If you need anything else, please stop by. Have a magical holiday vacation!
