    We are going to Disney from dec20 to jan 03. any special events or sights we should see during the Christmas New year Season

    Hi Isabel,

    There's so much to do and see at Walt Disney World during the holidays that it's hard to know where to begin! So I'll suggest a few of my favorite holiday activities to help you plan a special visit for your family.

    We love taking an afternoon to do a tour of resorts to take in the decorations themed to each resort. Wilderness Lodge is my favorite tree, though the one at the Grand Floridian is a close second. Plus, at Grand Floridian, you can pick up some goodies from the giant gingerbread house in the lobby.

    The Candlelight Processional at Epcot also is a family favorite, with guest narrators for the Christmas story backed by a mass choir. During your visit, guest narrators include actor Joe Morton and baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr.

    I'm eager to see what the holidays will bring to the newly expanded and renamed Disney Springs. It's already a fabulous place to eat and shop and holiday performances and decorations should make it even better. 

    And you may want to consider the final Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on December 22 to see the holiday version of Wishes, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, snow on Main Street and more.

    I could go on and on about Disney holidays, but I'm almost out of space. Please check back with the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can offer any more tips for an amazing Walt Disney World holiday.
