    We will be visiting WDW the day after Christmas. Will there still be Christmas festivities going on? Special fireworks shows or parades?

    Hi, Emily!

    Christmas is my favorite holiday and is my absolute most favorite time to visit Walt Disney World!
    During your Christmas visit, there will still be lots of holiday spirit around the parks and resorts! Your schedule can be filled with holiday chEAR, even after Christmas Day!

    Magic Kingdom-Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade 
    Epcot-Holidays Around the World, Candlelight Processional
    Disney's Hollywood Studios-Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!! 

    Also, all of the resorts will still be decked out in their holiday best! I would highly recommend taking a resort tour. Be sure to have Disney's Grand Floridian Resort on Spa on your list. Not only is there a massive Christmas tree ~The Christmas tree in Disney's Animal Kingdom is breathtaking, too~ but there is a gingerbread house INSIDE of the resort's lobby! The smells that come from that gingerbread house are tempting, so stop by and get you a piece of that gingerbread house, the shingles, to take home with you! And don't forget Disney Springs. After Christmas shopping and holiday chEAR flows through the Springs, too! 

    All of the parks will be lit up and very festive during your visit. Some of the attractions, such as Jungle Cruise, will still be transformed into Jingle Cruise and many attractions will be dressed in their Christmas best! 

    Emily, if you need more help with your Christmas planning, visit with us again! More details about what events will continue after Christmas may be released closer to the holiday season!

    Wishing you magic and holiday memories, Emily!
