From special parades to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and holiday fireworks shows, Disney World offers unique holiday experiences. These varied holiday events are likely to satisfy every visitor's notion of holiday celebrations.

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights
Each year, the Streets of America in Disney's Hollywood Studios are decorated in millions of lights that "dance" to holiday music about every 15 minutes. Snow falls on the display -- and the crowd -- at the end of each musical show.

You will find the traditional -- but larger than life -- Christmas trees and Christmas lights, life-sized gingerbread houses and carousels made of edible confections. Each resort hotel has its own theme decorations and special surprises.
Some holiday events require separate admission tickets, and they sell fast, so plan well in advance. The time after Thanksgiving until mid-December is much less crowded than the latter half of December, but you will enjoy the same array of decorations and events.
