    I am visiting in December 2024 with my daughter and husband for my 40th and will be attending all the parks, what times are each of the parks open between 4th and 18th December? I'm a planner :o)

    Welcome to planDisney, Rebecca! I always love to welcome a fellow planning aficionado - Walt Disney World planning is my most cherished hobby.

    Any time of year at Walt Disney World is magical, but Christmastime, MAG-I-CAL! I'm so excited for you and your family. At the moment, Park opening times are typically released about 75 days in advance, subject to change. My best advice is to check for updates on your My Disney Experience App to see the opening times at each Park. 

    Seeing Snoap fall on Main Street U.S.A., at the Magic Kingdom Park is the perfect way to welcome your 40th year (happy birthday in advance). My beloved EPCOT also guarantees all the festive feels! Munch your way around the World Showcase Holiday Cookie Stroll at the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays or watch the moving Candlelight Processional. You'll experience the Nativity story accompanied by beautiful orchestral and choral performances. So many magical festive moments! 

    I recommend checking Disney Parks Blog for all the latest holiday news so you can plan a magical adventure. Advanced dining reservations open 60 days ahead of your arrival, so you may like to consider your preferred dining experiences. As you're celebrating a very special birthday, I recommend California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort. The delicious food is enhanced by the Seven Seas Lagoon and Magic Kingdom Park views, especially if your reservation time coincides with Happily Ever After! 

    Please accept all my best wishes for a magical adventure at Walt Disney World, Rebecca - you'll have the time of your life! Louise
