Ever since Mickey’s Not-So Scary Halloween parties were canceled we couldn’t help but wonder how Walt Disney World would handle the big holiday season… we finally have an answer!
The winter months at Walt Disney World are generally filled with holiday cheer, plenty of hot cocoa, festive characters, special decor and entertainment offerings. 2020 will be a bit different, as Disney has modified this year’s holiday offerings to safely accommodate guests and CDC guidelines during the pandemic.
Unfortunately, these changes include the cancellation of some very popular events and holiday enhancements.
Here’s what is canceled for the 2020 Holiday Season at WDW:
While we will certainly miss these festive favorites, we fully understand the need to cancel these types of activities for the season. Each of these offerings attracts heavy-crowding, and social distancing isn’t possible in most of these situations. However, Disney is cooking up some safely modified holiday additions…
Despite those hard-hitting cancellations, Disney is “reimagining” the season to offer plenty of holiday magic.
This year, the official WDW holiday season takes place November 6th through December 30th. You’ll find holiday decor, themed merchandise and seasonal food & beverage across all four theme parks, Disney Springs and select resort hotels.
Theme parks are reopening, and whether you are ready to travel yet or not, there’s no better time to lock in low rates on future travel.
