    We are looking at Disney for sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have a 7 year old boy and last went in September of 2014 when he was 4. What are your suggestions for the holiday season?

    Hi Lori!

    I'm also visiting during the holiday season, and I'm so excited to be at the most magical place on earth during Christmastime! There are so many wonderful holiday activities to see and do. Your seven year old will love Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Tickets typically go on sale six months in advance and the shows are held on select nights in November and December. 

    The Candlelight Processional at Epcot is a do-not-miss show. You will hear the Christmas Story narrated by a celebrity and a choir and orchestra sing and play music. You don't even need a separate ticket for this event, but you can purchase the Candlelight Dining Package, which will give you guaranteed priority seating for the show.

    At Epcot you can also enjoy Holidays Around the World with special storytellers in the countries around the World Showcase. 

    The decorations at all of the resorts are also wonderful. You could take an entire day to explore the resorts and look at each of their uniquely decorated trees. Don't miss the life-sized gingerbread house at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
