Perhaps it's the heat, but those who enjoy the fall and winter holidays are equally eager for the cozy, cheerful feeling that only the winter holidays can offer.
Disney-themed decorations, attire, and accessories are an integral part of the holiday season for many, making a Disney park the perfect spot to visit during the most wonderful time of the year. And just as August begins, Mouse-heads are already planning.
The theme parks have a few long-running events that will make your holiday a special occasion this year.
Each season, loyal Disney fans eagerly await announcements about what the holiday season has in store for them. It's never too early to get set on a fantastic Walt Disney park vacation.
Disney World is hosting a Holiday Celebration.
One of Disney World's most popular events this year is the return of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, which is packed with fun activities for the whole family.
The return of the Big Mouse will include a stage performance at Cinderella's Castle, along with music and dance performances. Jolly Ol' St. Nick, a rosey-cheeked gift giver, will conduct the once-Upon-a-Christmas parade.
The ticket price for the Disney Experience is sold separately from the regular park entrance on select days between November 8 and December 22. Tickets will cost anywhere from $150 to $200 for adult admission, but it's best to get your Disney vacation planned early.
Save your cash, because you'll want to spend it on all of the wonderful holiday food the park has to offer. The International Festival of the Holidays (formerly known as Holidays Around the World) starts on November 25, and features some of the best Disney food offerings. Check out the Holiday Cookie Stroll or save your appetite for the various dishes from theHoliday kitchens.
