Disney has made lots of adjustments to make sure that the holidays still feel as magical as ever! It’s introduced new festive projections on Cinderella Castle and even surprised us with some fireworks that complement the projections.
The temperature has started to drop, the fuzzy sweaters are out, and Christmas has started to sweep its way across Disney World!
While the parks will be in a full holiday swing from November 6th through December 30th, entertainment and experiences in the parks and resorts are seeing some MAJOR differences this Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.
With the holidays quickly approaching, guests planning to visit Disney World in the coming months have some burning questions…and we’re here to help!
Things are definitely going to look a bit different in Disney World during this holiday season than in years past.
