Walt Disney World to Kick Off the Christmas Holiday on November 8th

Even though it is still summertime, we are already dreaming of the Christmas season at Walt Disney World.  The Christmas season is one of our favorite times to visit the parks for all of the amazing decorations, treats and events.  Disney Parks Blog has confirmed that the Christmas events will return to Walt Disney World starting on November 8th, 2018.  There will be a ton of great events around each of the theme parks and resorts at Walt Disney World.


Disney’s Hollywood Studios will offer Flurry of Fun again with Sunset Seasons Greetings.  During this special event there will be “snow” on Sunset Boulevard while the Hollywood Tower Hotel comes alive with themed projections for the season to bring holiday life into the area.   The park will also offer Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! again, too! Also, Alien Swirling Saucers within Toy Story Land will feature holiday songs during the season instead of the usual music.

Candlelight Processional at Epcot

Epcot is definitely a great park to visit this holiday season with the return of the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays on November 18th and the Candlelight Processional on November 22nd.  Both are extremely popular events and are included in regular park admission to Epcot.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
