    What are the special events, dining experiences, etc to do during Christmas at the Disney parks? This will be the first time my son (age 7) will be coming to Disney! We're so excited!

    Greetings, and a warm welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kristy!

    Visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during the jollyiest time of the year will find you basking in a multitude of holiday events and celebrations creating ever-lasting memories.

    I hope you consider taking your son to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park, Kristy. It is a must-do special event party that I'm confident you will all enjoy greatly. You'll see special celebrations, enjoy lots of attractions, parades, meet Disney Characters, eat special Christmas treats, meet with Santa and so much more. Something extra magical happens on Main Street, U.S.A. which I won't spoil for you.

    Over at Disney's Hollywood Studios the new and exciting Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! extravaganza is filled with lots of surprises just for the holiday season; isn't that exciting?

    Kristy, you can all have fun and teach your son about holiday traditions and customs with Holidays Around the World at Epcot where he could stop at all the Kidcot Fun Stops.

    Then, head over to see holiday excitement at Disney Springs, such as the 'Christmas Tree Trail' and the vignette featuring over 300 illuminated drones; it's phenomenal!
