    We are visiting over Christmas. Our kids are 15 and 11. What are the must dos for dining and activities at Christmas time? We would want to have a special dinner on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Any other must do suggestions are appreciated.

    Greetings, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, James.

    Visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the special holiday events and celebrations will leave you with the most cherished memories.

    In preparation for your visit, may I offer the informative and helpful Planning for Tweens and Teens Guide which contains suitable Disney Resort hotels, advice for rides, attractions and experiences that will thrill your entire family, sample Theme Park Itineraries and news and information about the Disney Theme Parks.

    Your visit during Christmas, James will be filled with festivities at every turn and if I may suggest some for Christmas Eve which I think are just spectacular?
    1) Celebrate the Holidays Around the World at Epcot.
    2) Partake in the delightful Candlelight Dining Package for a lovely Christmas dinner followed by the spectacular Candlelight Processional, a celebrity narrated story of Christmas accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and chorus.
    3) Enjoy a Victorian-style dinner at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and enjoy the lavishly adorned main lobby featuring a grand Christmas tree and lifesize Gingerbread house made of real gingerbread shingles.

    Just a few of the most magical Disney festivities that await your arrival, James.
