    My family will be at WDW for Christmas 2017. We have MVMCP tickets and Candlelight Processional dining ADR. What are other good holiday events? I was looking for Jingle Bam but it is not on the Hollywood Studios schedule. Will it happen this year?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Harlon!

    Christmas at the Walt Disney World just makes my heart happy. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year to visit! And by the sound of it, your planning is looking like a holly jolly holiday!

    Harlon, I highly recommend spending some quality time at Epcot’s World Showcase where you will be able to experience traditional celebrations from around the world. Holidays Around the World at Epcot offers the opportunity to enjoy and learn all about how other countries celebrate this joyous season with food, music and fun traditions. Oh, and don’t miss the amazing Holiday Finale of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. It’s breathtaking!
    During your visit to Magic Kingdom, don’t miss the holiday version of Jungle Cruise, the Jingle Cruise. It’s all your favorite hilarious skipper jokes with some holly sprinkled in. And of course, all the Christmassy treats and special events during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. You have to try them, and experience them, all!
    As far as Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!, the official schedule has yet to be released. But keep an eye out for the most up to date news and announcements on the Disney Parks Blog as they will be the first to let us know. I hope it does come back. I enjoyed it last year!

    I hope this helps you continue your holiday-tastic planning for your most magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Come back and see us again soon!
