    We have planned Surprise Trip to Disney for girls Christmas arriving 1am Dec 26th and staying until Dec 31st, We have visited many times in the past! The only reason we planned this time of year is due to Husbands work schedule. Just need some pointers?

    Hi Dacia,

    How wonderful that you’re planning a surprise party for your family. My family loves to go Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season.

    Well, as you may be aware already, it is a busy time to visit. However, with a little bit of planning, you can most definitely have a wonderful time. The Resort is beautiful and dresses up for the occasion. You will find some tall and gorgeous Christmas Trees at all parks and Resort hotels, and decorations galore. And the parades and firework shows are truly magical, so you don’t want to miss them.

    In terms of pointers, one experience that you cannot miss is Candlelight Processional. Set to an amazing choir and orchestra, a celebrity narrator will retell the story of Christmas. And a way to avoid long lines is to book a Candlelight Processional Dining Package. I highly recommend that you make advanced dining reservations, and the easiest way to do it is with the My Disney Experience mobile app. Make sure you visit the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort page for more ideas.

    One final tip: ‘tis the season of shopping and for authentic Disney Parks merchandise make sure you download the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. You’ll be able to look at exclusive merchandise available only at the Resort, and even have it delivered to your room, or home!

    See you real soon!
