    We are travelling from the UK arriving on Christmas Eve, can you advise the opening times of the Parks over Christmas/New Year please, the calendar seems to stop at November? Will all parks be open over the Christmas period, including the water parks?

    Hi Denise,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. What a nice time to visit WDW. It’s absolutely beautiful! All the Christmas decorations and songs transforms for an even better your visit. See if you can buy tickets for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, it’s my family favorite special event during the holidays. All the major four theme parks are going to be open for sure. During the winter, they’ve been closing one of the Disney’s water parks to refurbishments and all and the other one stays open almost every day and usually until 5:00 p.m. To keep yourself update about all the upcoming news regarding WDW, start to follow Disney Parks Blog. December hours is going to be release soon. Usually, they release park hours with six months in advance of the date that you are looking for. Always check Disney’s official page at web for more accurate info.

    Have a magical day!
