Disney Christmas at the Resorts

Disney Christmas

Disney Christmas can be an extremely exciting time. Not only are there a ton of things going on inside the parks such as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Epcot’s Candlelight Processional, but the Resorts get into the spirit of the holidays as well. The following shows some of the special events at some of the various resorts. Note that events change so check the schedules or call ahead.

You can freely visit the Disney Resorts. If you are driving, simply tell the security guard that is posted at each resort that you are simply visiting. Note that if you try to drive into a resort on Friday through Sunday, the individual resort may state that they are not allowing visitors due to lack of parking due to changes in rooms. Note that taking the bus to the resorts will allow you access as well.
