    Hello, we are planning our first trip to WDW would you recommend a way to see as much as possible with a nearly 2yo we will be going for the Christmas season is there anything specific to see while its on? Thank you in advance :)

    Hi Aimee!

    Congratulations on your first trip to Walt Disney World! Your two-year old is going to have the time of her life at the most magical place on earth! 

    Christmas is my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World! I definitely suggest buying tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, which will occur on select nights in November and December. This event is held at Magic Kingdom. The park will close early for all other guests and only those who have tickets to this special event will get to enjoy the snow on Main Street, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and Cookies & Hot Cocoa. There will be unique character meet n greets and the lines for attractions will be less time than during regular park hours.

    You will also love visiting the resorts and viewing all the Christmas decorations. Don't miss the giant gingerbread house at Grand Floridian Resort. You will also love touring Epcot and hearing from the storytellers around the World Showcase. The Candlelight Processional at Epcot is also wonderful, but may not hold your two-year olds attention. 

    Don't forget to pick up a "My First Visit" complimentary pin when you arrive.
