    When does the Walt Disney World Christmas schedule come out? My family has a package booked Dec 24 to Jan 4 and I'd like to start planning our stay. Considering it's Christmas and it will be busy I'd like to make a day to day plan.

    Hi Coleen,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season is just about as magical as it gets!  All of the Parks and Resorts are festively decorated and overflowing with the spirit of the holiday season! You are certainly going to get a "pixie dusted" start to 2017! 

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party takes place on select nights November 7th through December 22nd so, unfortunately, you will miss the Party since your visit takes place after those dates. The dates and narrators for Candlelight Processional in Epcot, as well as the activities taking place during New Year's Eve, have not yet been announced. I suggest keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for updates and new event information as that information should be announced very soon. 

    At this time, Theme Park Hours and Extra Magic Hours are only posted through late November. Theme Park Hours are usually posted six (6) months in advance to allow for planning so keep checking the website and/or the My Disney Experience app as the hours should be updated as your visit gets closer. 

    Please visit us again if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
