    How is the Christmas Experience ?

    Welcome to planDisney, Asia! I'm so happy to answer your question today. Walt Disney World is always called the Most Magical Place on Earth, but Christmastime here... MAG-I-CAL!

    Seriously, Walt Disney World takes the most wonderful time of the year to the next level. Disney Resort hotels and Parks are immersed in festive decor, snoap falls on Main Street U.S.A. and there's my beloved EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays. I guarantee all the festive feels! 

    My top 3 recommendations at Christmastime...

    1. Take a bite of your own piece of freshly-baked Gingerbread Shingles used to build the spectacular gingerbread house in Disney Grand Floridian Resort & Spa Lobby.

    2. In Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, the Merry Menagerie features artisan-sculpted arctic animal puppets that interact with guests in such a profound way that my kids still talk about the experience A LOT.

    3. Candlelight Processional at EPCOT shares the Nativity story accompanied by emotive choral performances. It's an unforgettable experience with so much magic! 

    Those are just my treasured moments, but you can expect to find these and SO much more for that perfect holiday vibe throughout December. Don't forget what lies beneath all the imaginative decor, too! Ultimate thrills like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. Fantastic dining options from fine-dining sophistication at California Grill to fun snacks like Fanta Orange Float DOLE Whip from Sunshine Tree Terrace in Magic Kingdom Park. There's beauty and fun everywhere, and I know you will enjoy a magical adventure!

    I hope this information helps today, Asia, and you get to immerse yourself in the festive magic at Walt Disney World. We're always here to help at planDisney, so if you need anything else, please reach out. 

    Have a magical day!
