    How is Disney over Christmas vacation? (weather, crowds)

    Hi Mary-Jo,

    I see you are thinking about celebrating the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting! It is my favorite time of the year to visit.

    The whole Resort dresses up for the occasion, and there are some special events that cannot be missed. Mickey wants to celebrate with his friends during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. And to experience the story of Christmas retold by famous narrators amid an impressive choir and orchestra, you have to experience Candlelight Processional.

    During this time of the year the weather is gorgeous with highs typically in the upper 70s, however it can get chilly at night. It is the season most attended by Guests, and usually the Theme Parks typically have extended hours.

    One last tip: among the many Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefits, is having access to Extra Magic Hours, and the ability to make dining reservations up to 180 days and booking FastPass+ 60 days before your Check-In. This gives you a leg up and best availability over off-site Guests. Happy planning!
