Each year, the Walt Disney theme parks around the world transform to fit the holiday cheer. Every park is re-decorated with Christmas lights, trees, and Christmas treats are readily available throughout the parks. Tripps Travel Network is here with the highlights, including which holiday-themed attractions are simply not to be missed.
At Disneyland in California, the Haunted Mansion ride gets a spooky facelift just in time for Christmas. If that sounds a little backwards, Tripps Travel Network points out that Jack Skellington and the crew from The Nightmare Before Christmas are to blame. Jack, Sally, Zero, and all the rest of the Nightmare Before Christmas characters are up to no good in this special holiday ride. Disneyland and Tokyo Disney are the only two parks that partake in this special haunted holiday experience, so fans will have to head to one of those two to experience the ride in all its spooky, holiday cheer.
Tripps Travel Network knows that 2015 is the last year that the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights will be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. To make way for the Star Wars and Toy Story expansions, Hollywood Studios is retiring the holiday event after this year. With that in mind, families who wish to experience the millions of lights on display will not want to skip it in 2015.
At the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party lights up the night during select nights in November and December. The special holiday event requires a separate admission, and runs from 7pm to midnight, and features a Christmas-themed parade, special holiday fireworks, and free treats like cookies and hot chocolate. Tripps Travel Network suggests that families who have young ones visit the Totally Tomorrowland Christmas for plenty of singing and dancing to help bring the kids down off of their cookie and hot chocolate-fueled sugar rush.
EPCOT is home to the World Showcase, a semi-circle of pavilions featuring countries from all around the world. From Canada to Japan, Italy, and Mexico, each country is represented with its own thematic areas as well as shopping and dining experiences. During the holiday months special storytellers come out in each of these countries and explain their country’s version of the Santa Claus character and what sort of traditions they employ around the holidays.
Visiting Disney during the holidays is an excellent choice for families of all ages and Tripps Travel Network is positive that memorable vacation experiences will be had at any one of these holiday events. For more information please visit http://trippstravelnetwork.com/
