A reimagined holiday celebration will take place at Walt Disney World this year with running between November 27th and December 30th, 2020. Seasonal shows, decor, activities, treats, and merchandise will be sure to delight the senses of guests during this festive time in the Magic Kingdom and beyond.

  • Disney Character Cavalcades will travel through the Park and include seasonal favorites such as gingerbread men and elves.
  • On Main Street, U.S.A., toy soldiers will march with the Main Street Philharmonic as they bring musical cheer.
  • Projection effects will transform Cinderella Castle with a kaleidoscope of holiday designs, providing the perfect colorful background for magical holiday portraits.
  • Shops overflowing with select holiday merchandise make for perfect for gifts and souvenirs.
  • Pop-up appearances from Santa Claus himself as he waves to guests.
  • Tasty seasonal foods and beverages will bring joy to tastebuds.

While these seasonal festivities will delight guest, others such as the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will not be happening out of a concern for the health and safety of both guests and cast members. No matter what though I'm sure that Disney will make it a magical season.

More announcements about the 2020 holiday season will be made in the coming weeks so we'll be sure to keep you updated! Will you be taking a winter holiday trip to Disney this year? Let me know in the comments.

Looking to Vacation with my family this Holiday Season in Florida. There are so many negative comments. The virus has really seem to have just taken away from the magical expectation of the trip. So I am at a loss to what we can and can not do. I have a small group of 20 people running from age 2-70. What can I do with so many limitations?

Hi Rosemary! While it's true that Walt Disney World is different right now, there is still magic to be had.

Be sure to make your Theme Park Reservations so that you can get into a Park. This must be made in advance and dates do sell out. That being said, this is sure to be one of the least crowded Christmastimes at Walt Disney World in decades. Take advantage of shorter lines by enjoying extra rides on your favorites.

Characters pop up in unexpected places and interact with guests in new ways. While it happens from a distance, it also tends to be more creative and personal by letting them be in their "native" environments.

Holiday shopping and dining is as good as ever, just be sure to make your ADRS at 60 days out. Our friends over at the Disney Food Blog have even been impressed with the way some restaurants have stepped up their game and become even better during the restructuring.

Each and every Disney Park is decorated and putting on it's best for holiday fun with events and activities that give guests a new spin on the holidays. Disney Spring is still rocking and to me feels the most "normal" of the property.

My best advice with a group that size is that you allow everyone the opportunity to split up and enjoy the things that they like most. Family togetherness can grow with a little time apart and it's always nice to gather around the pool at the end of the night and talk about all the fun that was had.

Things are different, but if you keep an open mind and pack your patience you can still have a fantastic Disney vacation with your family.
