Christmas Time


What are some changes that happen during the Holiday season?


Where do you want me to begin?

MK-The entire park, especially Main Street, is all dolled up beautiful in Christmas Decorations. Christmas Parade, Holiday fireworks, holiday shows.

DHS- Osborne Lights on the Streets of America, as well as decorations throughout the park. AND, coming in 2009, a holiday version of Block Party Bash!

DAK- Holiday parade starts November 12th.

Epcot- Decorations everywhere, especially for each country in World Showcase. Also holiday storytellers in each country.

I’m missing quite a bunch but I hope this is a start.


in the Sept. Moussavers newsletter…(which i just minutes ago read & deleted…sorry) it described all the holiday festivities…starting Nov. 10, 2008 WDW will be showing off it’s holiday spirit in tons of ways!

maybe someone else who got the newsletter can copy & past that info. here.


The parks and resorts all get decorated in a winter/holiday theme. The characters all have their winter/Santa costumes and the parades also change to holiday themes. As for special events there are a lot of different shows and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is at the MK. Epcot has a lot of great events happening during the holidays!


All the Resorts are decorated. GF has a giant ginger bread house. I hear one I think BC has a carousel done up in it. So each resort will have it’s own decorations to see. I think on Samantha Brown it was said all the main decorations in the resort are edible. Such and the ginger bread house and the carousel.
And so much more!


As the RowdyRaider has stated and there is just so much to see and do it’s a must see and experience if you can. EPCOT has a ton of things that go on

:confused:Does anyone know if they sell a refillable holiday mug?


I’ve only ever seen resort mugs. ALTHOUGH, I do remember some sort of plastic mug that RESEMBLED the resort refillable mugs being sold in the parks with hot chocolate in it. I think I saw them during MVMCP and in MGM during the Osborne Lights. Not refillable though.
