We're halfway through 2021, which marks the halfway mark until Christmas. Disney has announced that the Christmas celebrations at the Walt Disney World resort will begin November 12th, and will take place during the 50th anniversary celebrations.
When the sun sets, special holiday projections will appear most nights on Cinderella Castle, alternating periodically with the castle’s transformation into a Beacon of Magic. Replacing Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party this year will be Disney Very Merriest After Hours which will take place on select nights from November 8th through December 21st.
The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will return this year, from November 26th through December 30th with Holiday Kitchens around the park, performances by Voices of Liberty, the guest favourite Cookie Stroll and more!
The Hollywood Holiday Tower Hotel on Sunset Boulevard will twinkle once again with projection effects, magically transforming into a snowy corner of Arendelle, a Muppets gingerbread masterpiece, a Toy Story toy hotel, and a Dickensian village inspired by "Mickey's Christmas Carol." This holiday show will also alternate with the tower’s nightly transformation into a Beacon of Magic. Minnie & friends will also be back in their holiday outfits at Hollywood & Vine.
The return of seasonal décor and festive Disney character flotillas sailing down Discovery River to the sounds of joyful songs of the season. The park’s centerpiece - The Tree of Life - becomes another Beacon of Magic most nights during the 50th anniversary celebration. During the holiday season there’s even more magic inspired by nature as the holiday edition of Tree of Life Awakenings also takes place most nights.
The shopping, dining and entertainment destination will transform into a winter wonderland, full of sparkling lights, enchanting décor and holiday surprises. This year sees the return of the Disney Springs Christmas Tree Stroll, with elaborately decorated, Disney-themed trees. A magical snowfall will add a touch of wonder for holiday shoppers in Town Center.
Select Disney resorts will be decked out for the holidays, with iconic trees and other seasonal touches. Restaurants will be offering special holiday menus and specialty food and drink. There might be gingerbread displays, too!
