    I will be visiting Disney December 15- 21, 2016 with my husband, our sons (ages 12 and 7). I wanted to know what the Christmas events/activities will be and when I can start making reservations for them?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! The holiday season at Walt Disney World is the most magical time to visit! 

    I have a few suggestions for you:

    Check out the Holidays at Walt Disney World page to check out all of the offering during this special time of year.

    My favorite holiday experience is Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. This special experience is held on select evenings throughout November and December. The park closes for all other guests, except for guest who have purchased tickets to this special event. You will get to experience "snow" on Main Street, a special Holiday Wishes showing, holiday parade and cookies and hot cocoa! You can purchase tickets for this event now on the Disney website

    At Epcot, you can experience Holidays Around the World, in which you can experience traditions and hear from storytellers throughout the World Showcase. No ticket is required for this event, it's included in admission to Epcot! 

    The Candlelight Processional at Epcot is incredible and a "do not miss" experience. You can hear from a celebrity narrator and hear a 50-piece orchestra and choir. You can purchase a Candlelight Processional Dinner Package 180 days in advance through My Disney Experience or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.

    Have a wonderful time during the most magical time of the yEAR!
