Disney World is rolling out park hours for December! What do you think of these new hours?
December at Disney World
Disney recently shared details about what the holiday season will look like across the theme parks and resorts. Here is a brief recap:
However, we can still expect decor to pop up around the parks. Specifically, Cinderella Castle will look a bit different this year.
Santa and his friends will appear at Magic Kingdom as well – likely in the form of Character Cavalcades.
Holiday seasonal dining will happen once again at Hollywood & Vine. I (Monica) am excited to try dinner there for the first time and see my favorite friends in some festive outfits!
A sampling of Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays will still happen this year. We can expect Voices of Liberty and JOYFUL! to return.
Disney Springs and the resorts will also be decked out for the holiday season. Unfortunately, the famous gingerbread displays will not appear this year.
The holiday season at Walt Disney World will run November 6 to December 30. More details on all things Christmas can be found HERE.
Disney has also shared a holiday commercial, which can be viewed HERE.

Did you know Kenny has all park hours listed on Character Locator? Not only that but he also advises which parks are best (and worst) to visit each day.
I have been a subscriber of Character Locator for over 6 years, and I always appreciate this feature when planning my trips. I also follow his touring plans as well as tips for various attractions.
Thanks to the tips on Character Locator, I’m a Galactic Hero for Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin!
