    We are looking forward to spending Christmas at Disney this year! Are there any special activities or anything special for Christmas Day or Christmas Eve?

    Greetings, Danielle, welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for this festive question!

    Disney's Holiday Events and Celebrations is packed with ideas to help you celebrate the season during your visit. May I suggest you familiarize yourself to select which activities and events best suit your touring style and preferences. The entire Resort is decked out in holiday gear offering special activities and events throughout. Don't forget to visit the redesigned Disney Springs which is packed with new dining, shopping, entertainment and where Santa Claus will be waiting to greet you.

    On Christmas Day, bright and early you simply must head over to Magic Kingdom Park to walk through the nostalgic, ornately holiday adorned Main Street, U.S.A. which will evoke the highest level of holiday feeling, in my opinion. Enjoy a festive dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern and then catch the Resort Monorail to Disney's Contemporary, Disney's Polynesian Village and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa Resorts to marvel at the massive Christmas Trees and lavish holiday decor. You'll be astonished to see a life-size Gingerbread House made of real gingerbread shingles which you can purchase if you wish. Take a Water Taxi over to Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort for a cozy experience in the magnificent lobby whilst enjoying hot cocoa and sugar cookies.

    Epcot boasts holidays around the world from all the country pavilions, truly a delight and must-do experience!

    Happy Disney Holiday Wishes!
