No one does Christmas quite like Disney. From classic cartoons featuring Mickey and Donald to newer films like Frozen, Disney always puts its best foot forward when planning for and designing attractions for the holiday season for its legions of fans.
At Disney World, you will find several Disney Christmas events that will be perfect for the entire family. Below are a few of the events and attractions that you can look forward to this holiday season at Disney World:
Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays
Epcot has created one of the most popular Disney Christmas events in the entire park with its International Festival of the Holidays. This celebration of culinary delights includes a wide variety of food and drink items from several countries around the world. There’s a Cookie Stroll for fans of desserts, Holiday Kitchens for seasonal recipes, live musical productions, and more!
Tree of Life Awakenings
The best Disney Christmas events are often the ones that incorporate animals and nature, which makes The Tree of Life Awakenings so incredible. This amazing visual display features fireflies, hummingbirds, a sly fox, exotic vegetation, and more as the slumbering tree awakens for the world to see.
Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace
Several Disney Christmas events utilize fireworks to create a dazzling spectacle, and this is definitely one of the best. Available options include a Signature Celebration Package where you will feast at Cinderella’s Royal Table Experience, a Standing Dessert Invitation, and an After-Fireworks Dessert Party.
Christmas at Pongu Pongu
New to the list of Disney Christmas events this year, celebrate at Pongu Pongu, a drink stand inspired by the magical world of Avatar and run by an ex-pat who loved Pandora so much that he (or she) didn’t want to leave. Mixing the indigenous population with vintage artifacts from Earth, this beautiful display is sure to delight even the most casual fans. You definitely need to stop by and sample one of their frozen drinks before you leave.
The winter celebration of Discovery Island has different features between day and night. In the daylight hours, you can expect life-size animal puppets including foxes, polar bears, and reindeer. Each night, be prepared for the Tree of Life to awaken with amazing stories to tell, along with bird lanterns and rooftop luminaries that fill the sky.
Holidays in Toy Story Land
Pixar has been a part of the Disney Christmas events for quite a few years and one of the most popular attractions during the winter season is Toy Story Land that has been decorated for the holiday. Featuring Woody, Buzz, and other Toy Story characters, fans of the movie will absolutely adore this area. You’ll feel as if you’ve left the real world behind and entered Andy’s room for the holiday season!
Holidays at Disney Springs
If you feel like slowing down a bit from the Disney Christmas events, take a break by visiting Disney Springs at your leisure. This amazing area features a wide variety of fun activities for kids of all ages, including movies, bowling, boutiques, and more.
