    My family and I will be visiting Disney sometime between December 28 and the New Year. Will we still be able to experience the Christmas specials at Disney?

    Hi Nancy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I can't think of a more festive place to visit during the holidays than the Walt Disney World Resort. All of the parks and hotels will be decked out in their holiday finery. I can understand why you would worry since you will be visiting after Christmas Day, but rest assured there will still be plenty of holiday fun to be had by you and your family.

    The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, including the meaningful Candlelight Processional, will be taking place through December 30, 2018. You can sample seasonal delights from the Holiday Kitchens around World Showcase while performers bring you holiday traditions from the countries represented. IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth will have a special section to add a little holiday magic to the show. 

    You and your family can also enjoy A Flurry of Fun at Disney's Hollywood Studios through January 6, 2019. Sunset Seasons Greetings begins as the sun goes down over Sunset Boulevard. There are projections on The Hollywood Tower Hotel and additional laser effects and best of all, snow in Florida! The Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM Nighttime Spectacular follows the adorable stars of the ABC's Prep and Landing as they have to search for Santa who has gone missing! Special holiday touches are going to be added to the brand new Toy Story Land. (I wouldn't miss it!)

    These are a few of the highlights but there will be so much happening! Please let me know if you have questions about any other Holiday Activities I can help you with!
    Wishing you a magical visit,
    Amy H.
