    We are planning our first trip to Disney World over the week of Christmas. I have 3 daughters, 14, 8 & 5. Wanting to know what special things we need to make sure we do while at the parks over the holiday. Any special things to do on Christmas Day??

    Hi Jeffrey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You've chosen the most magical time of year for your inaugural visit to Walt Disney World Resort! The holiday season is my favorite time of year! Each of the four theme parks will be decked out in all their holiday splendor. I can't wait for you and your family to see it for yourselves!

    One thing not to miss is the special ticketed event, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! This festive party offers special Character Greetings with your favorite Disney Characters wearing their best holiday apparel, holiday treats that will fill your tummies and special entertainment. This party is very popular and select nights often sell out. I recommend purchasing tickets in advance to this joyful time!

    Once Upon A Christmastime Parade and the fireworks spectacle, Holiday Wishes, are two of my favorite things to see while visiting during the holiday season. Also, be sure to visit the phenomenal life-size gingerbread house at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa; we love seeing (and smelling) it! You will be able to purchase gingerbread treats to eat, too! Finally, one of my all-time favorite holiday traditions at Walt Disney World is the Candlelight Processional at Epcot.

    Celebrating Christmas Day at Disney will be an unforgettable vacation. If you haven't done so already, download the My Disney Experience app for your smartphone so you'll have all the Christmas Day's festivities at the palm of your hand!

    Jeffrey, I'm wishing you a magical vacation and a Merry Christmas!
