    If we are limited on time (only 3 park days) for our '17 Xmas week vacation, which parks/events do you suggest? We're traveling with 3 generations but kids first time. I don't mind skipping rides, want them to experience the magic I know!

    Hi, Gary!
    Visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays is magical. Just spending time in the resort hotels can get everyone into the holiday spirit.

    If I had a choice to soak in the holidays in the parks, I would start with Magic Kingdom Park. The decorations alone will put you in a good mood. The holiday lights on Cinderella Castle and the "snow" on Main Street U.S.A. are my favorite. If you want to take the holiday game up another notch, consider attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios also has some extra perks to the holiday seasons. This year, the park added the Jingle Jam, Jingle BAM! show. I'm sure something special is also planned for next year. Plus, there are so many fun attractions and Star Wars experiences.

    At Epcot, you can enjoy the Holidays Around the World. Your family can have fun learning about the different ways to celebrate Christmas. There are also extra yummy holiday treats to enjoy. (The holidays are always a great excuse to eat extra snacks!)

    Enjoy your holiday-filled Disney vacation with family!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
