    Hi Disney Moms! Is the Candlelight Processional ever offered the week before Thanksgiving? I have never been to Disney @ that time, always Spring Break, so I want to do everything there is holiday-related! Is there a list of all holiday activities offered?

    Hello, Kelli!

    It sounds like you are ready to experience your first Holiday at Walt Disney World Resort! Epcot's Candlelight Processional does not begin until after Thanksgiving, but there are plenty of other holiday experiences available during your visit: 

       • Disney Springs: From a nightly tree lighting ceremony and live entertainment to meeting Santa Claus in his chalet, you will want to plan plenty of time to explore this area! Holiday fun begins November 14, 2016!
       • Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! November 14 a new nighttime spectacular will debut at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I am so looking forward to seeing scenes from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and music synchronized to lasers and pyrotechnics! 
       • Holidays Around the World at Epcot: Be sure to visit World Showcase to see the holiday traditions and celebrations from other countries.
       • Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party: There are a few party nights the week before Thanksgiving if you want to experience a fantastic party at the Magic Kingdom.

    I hope this helps with your planning! Please visit us again should you have additional questions before your visit.
