    Hello!!! My family and I are planning a trip to Disney World for this Christmas!!! I have a few questions about going to Disney on Christmas Day... Will everything still be open, will the characters still be out and about? Will they have character dining?

    Hello Myrtie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Christmas day at Walt Disney World Resort is usually one of the busiest days of the year. The crowds are often large and there is so much going on that the Theme Parks are bursting at the seams with festive cheer.

    When Walt Disney World Theme Parks are in their peak seasons (such as during the holidays and summer), there is just as much, if not more, to experience.

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is a holly-jolly Special Event that takes place on select nights in Magic Kingdom. With the Holiday Wishes Nighttime Spectacular and Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, you're sure to experience even more than you would during a regular day at Magic Kingdom.

    The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays adds an international holiday flair to World Showcase with live musical productions; seasonal food & beverage specialties.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park lights up the night with the Santa-sized Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! fireworks spectacular.

    Rather than missing out on any Disney magic during the Christmas holidays, Walt Disney World Resort maintains the attractions, entertainment and Character Dining and adds unforgettable experience to fill your Christmas to the brim with holiday cheer.

    Have a Very Merry Visit!
