Another round of park hours have been released. This time it’s for the most popular time of the year: the week between Christmas and New Year!

Disney in December

Disney recently shared details about what the holiday season will look like across the theme parks and resorts. Here is a brief recap:

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the Candlelight Processional will NOT take place this year.

However, we can still expect decor to pop up around the parks. Specifically, Cinderella Castle will look a bit different this year.


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.
