    Will Once Upon a Christmastime dining packages be available between Christmas and New Year's Eve in 2018? Will the Jingle Bell Jingle BAM! Dessert Party be offered in 2018? If so, when and how can I make a reservations for these? Thank you!

    Hi Michelle, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I was so excited to read all about 2018’s magical holiday offerings, including some new festive fun as well as tinsel-tastic favorites.

    The Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is my absolute favorite entertainment offering at Walt Disney World. From the music, costumes, and pixie dusted touches to my favorites, Santa’s dancing reindeer, it fills me with joy every time. At this time, I have not been able to confirm whether this Dining Package is coming back for 2018. In past years, on select dates before and after Christmas, the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade has replaced the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom Park, and Guests who have booked the Disney Festival of Fantasy Dining Package have been able to view the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade from the VIP viewing area. Because I don’t see a special booking option for a Once Upon a Christmastime Parade dining package, I recommend calling (407) WDW-DINE to ask about Dining Package options and to look for reservation availability.

    Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! is so much fun, Michelle! It looks like the Dessert Party will be offered, but I don’t see reservation availability just yet. Just like the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade Dining Packages, it might be that the Disney elves are still working to take care of every detail before making these offerings available to Guests; please contact the same Dining phone number listed above to inquire about reservation availability and other details. 

    Have so much festive fun during your holiday visit to Walt Disney World, Michelle!

    Wishing you a merry and magical vacation,
