    Hello! I am planning our trip home in early December. We are a family of 4 with a 7 year old son and 15 month old daughter. This is our first trip at Christmas time. Can you recommend attractions or parties the kids would love for Christmas?

    Hi Lori,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My top must-do is Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. The characters are dressed in their holiday attire, Cinderella Castle shimmers and the treats are irresistible. Take a few minutes to review the fun at Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. Your little ones will enjoy the Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays with different traditions celebrated in the 11 World Showcase pavilions. Epcot is expansive, so when our girls were younger, we visited select pavilions. There was no way we could do it all!

    The falling snow happens to be one of my favorite experiences. It may not be a party, but it definitely adds to the magic. Be sure to stop by The Flurry of Fun at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I am super excited because this will be the first year we get to experience Sunset Seasons Greetings. My girls adore Olaf so we cannot wait to help him celebrate. Also, do not forget about Disney Springs. I love strolling along the Christmas Tree Trail and seeing all of the fabulously decorated trees. Your 7-year old might love Stitch's Holiday Gift Hunt and a visit with Santa Claus at Santa's Chalet!

    Lori, when we visit this December, we are only doing the party ticket to Magic Kingdom and not an additional Magic Kingdom ticket since we are on a budget. Be sure to consider your options and enjoy the holiday spirit!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
