    Hi Moms. My family and i will be vacationing in Disney the week of Thanksgiving. Anything special you can recommend we do that week?

    Hello, Suzette!

    Oh, my, there are so many special things to do in Walt Disney World during the week of Thanksgiving!

    To get as much information in here as possible, I'll start by sending you to this link, where I've detailed my favorite things at Walt Disney World during Thanksgiving week. In 2012, Epcot's Holidays Around The World--Candlelight Processional begins on Friday, November 23rd and runs through Sunday, December 30th. Consider booking a Candlelight Dinner Package, which will give you guaranteed seating for the Candlelight Processional as well as VIP viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth that night. This event is one of my very favorites in Walt Disney World during the holiday season!

    In addition, consider attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, which is being offered on select dates from November 9, 2012 through December 21. (During the week of Thanksgiving 2012, the party is being held on November 25, 27, 29 and 30 as well as December 2nd.) When you click on the link above, just select "Buy Tickets Now!" for pricing information. On my last trip to WDW during the holiday season this past December, I couldn't believe how much more "in the holiday spirit" I could get...until I went to Mickey's Party!

    Finally, be sure to head over to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to see the absolutely magical gingerbread display! It's a quick monorail ride from Magic Kingdom Park, so you can easily add this to any day during which you'd be heading to MK.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving visit to Walt Disney World! Please send any additional questions as you think of them! I'd love to help!
