Overview

Each year, the Disney World Cast Members create a breathtaking mixture of special events and decor during the Christmas season. It is the most wonderful time to visit the Happiest Place on Earth.

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.

Special Decor

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.

Candlelight Processional

The traditional story of Christmas is narrated throughout the holiday season by a variety of celebrities at EPCOT. The narration is accompanied by traditional songs sung by a choir with a live orchestra.

Special Notes

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.
