The holidays at Walt Disney World are a can’t miss experience. From holiday traditions around the globe to Epcot’s Candlelight Processional, the many sweet treats and Santa’s here are some tips to make the most of this magical time of year.

Book with New Disney Tickets
One of the biggest tips we can give you this holiday season is to take advantage of Walt Disney World’s new date-based ticket pricing. With the new ticket system, you will be able to see the price for whichever date or dates you plan to attend this holiday season. Some dates will be cheaper than others so make sure you check out the interactive calendar right here on Best of Orlando when booking.

Visit All Four Parks
All four Walt Disney World parks are hosting their own unique holiday experiences. Each one very different from the other, which is why they are all worth checking out. Disney’s Magic Kingdom hosts the always popular, family-friendly Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Disney’s Hollywood Studios offers up a holly, jolly celebration with the Flurry of Fun event. Epcot will take you through holiday traditions around the world with the International Festival of Holidays, where you can also take in the gorgeous Candlelight Processional with a celebrity narrator and 50-piece orchestra and choir and Disney’s Animal Kingdom celebrates Diwali, India’s Festival of Lights.

Stay a While
To ensure you get to see all of the magic this time of year make sure you stay for an extended period of time. We recommend booking at least four days and adding the Park Hopper Option. This allows for one park per day of your visit. And if you really wanted to soak in all the seasonal joy you could choose from up to10-days.

Visit Disney Springs
Disney Springs will have its own fair share of holiday cheer. Make sure you stop by in between theme park visits for the Christmas Tree Trail with Christmas trees designed by Disney movies, characters and attractions. Goofy Santa will also make appearances at Disney Springs on select days. You can also enjoy a tasty meal at one of the district’s many restaurants and top off the day with a holiday sweet treat at The Ganchery or Amorette’s Patisserie.
