Holidays at Walt Disney World. Two Popular Events Canceled

Disney has announced that the holiday season will begin on November 6 but without the two most popular events.

Disney Parks Blog has announced that the holidays will go on at Walt Disney World but without several of the most highly anticipated events of the season.

Building off of our recent experiences of operating in a new environment, we’ve reimagined the holidays which will, of course, apply current our current health and safety measures while still keeping the joy and magic of the season. And while things are looking a bit different at Walt Disney World and beyond, we can’t wait to celebrate with you.

The holidays will run from November 6 through December 30 2020 and will include the beloved holiday deocrations at all Walt Disney World theme parks. In addition, there will be themed merchandise, seasonal food & beverage offerings and entertainment all across Walt Disney World Resort. Santa is also coming to Disney World and will be available for greetings but no meet and greet.  

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, characters have been on the waterways on board water floats and those will contiue with festive additions. Holiday promenades will be found at EPCOT. Merry motorcades will continue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Over at Magic Kingdom the character cavalcades will continue with a holiday flourish. 

There will be fun and festive designs on the castle that will serve as fun and unique backdrops for guest photos. This will unfortunately be in place of Elsa’s holiday takeover of Cinderella Castle.

We are sad to announce that our two most treasured holiday traditions will not be available this year. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Candlelight Processional at EPCOT are canceled. 

Disney did announce that there will be holiday meals available for guests to dine with their favorite characters.

Minnie Mouse will be hosting a yuletide gathering for all her friends at Hollywood & Vine at Disney’s Hollywood Studios starting Nov. 6. Santa Goofy will be there, along with Minnie and more in their holiday best.

Disney Springs will also feature festive elements. Elaborately-decorated Disney Christmas trees will be found throughout the area.  In the evening, guests visiting areas within Town Center, West Side and The Landing will encounter a magical snowfall, adding an extra touch of wonder to their holiday shopping. 

Over at Jock Lindsey’s Hanger Bar, the atmosphere will once transform into Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar complete with delightful holiday décor and a delicious limited-time menu filled with festive favorites.

We are pleased that Disney has announced that Disney Resort hotels will be decked out for the holidays, with their lobbies featuring iconic trees and other festive flourishes. We are (first world) devasted that there will be no gingerbread displays at the resorts.

EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays will return. Holiday kitchens will feature favorites like American Holiday Table featuring Slow-roasted Turkey with Stuffing and Bavaria Holiday Kitchen with dishes like Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl.

Guests will be invited to step inside World ShowPlace to enjoy the returning group, JOYFUL!, who present a journey through R&B, Gospel, contemporary and traditional Christmas and holiday music. Also, the Voices of Liberty will bring their incredible 8-part harmonies to the America Gardens Theatre stage for a special concert of favorite carols and songs of the season.

We fully understand that holidays at Walt Disney World are a first world comfort and we in no way want to take away from the seriousness of the current situation or the heartache and pain many are feeling around the country and the world.

We are saddened that the holidays will be so different and although we understand the reasoning, we won’t hide our disappointment. We continue to keep those suffering in our thoughts and are blessed that we will be able to experience the holidays at Walt Disney World even though they will be missing the most magical of features for 2020.

Thank you for stopping by. We’ll see ya’ real soon. Be sure to follow us on Instagram at ForLoveOfMouse, on Facebook at For The Love of The Mouse and on YouTube at For Love of The Mouse.
