    If we don’t buy the extra tickets for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, are there other fun holiday activities to do at the other parks while this is going on?

    Happy early Holiday chEAR Angela!

    While I love Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, there are so many beautiful ways to enjoy Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays! Holiday tours, sleigh rides, and a bevy of Christmas-related activities are sure to delight your entire family.

    First stop, Disney’s Hollywood Studios! The decor in the Park is one of my favorites. It is classic Americana-holiday, with tinsel and smiling Santas and fairy lights! One of our holiday must-dos is Sunset Seasons Greetings. The show is full holiday lights, dazzling projections, and falling snow in Florida! I love watching our kiddos’ eyes sparkle while watching The Tower of Terror light up like a Frozen wonderland with drifting snow in the background.

    Head on over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park for a wild take on the holidays! The village of Harambe will celebrate African holiday traditions, while Donald Duck and friends welcome you to a holiday-themed meal at Tusker House Restaurant. Stick around for the evening when the Tree of Life awakens with wintry-tales and a Christmas-inspired musical score.

    Finally, you have to experience my three favorite “trails!” The Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs is the perfect break from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, while the Holiday Cookie Stroll at Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays is always on our must-do list. We also do a self-guided tour of the Resorts during the holidays. From the life-sized Gingerbread House at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to the magnificent tree at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Lodge, the Resorts are our favorite source of holiday chEAR!

    Angela, I wish you a Very Merry early Christmas. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back!
