There’s no denying the fact that Disney World is for everyone, whether young or old, you will surely have a fantastic time in the happiest place on earth. Since I’ve been there a year ago I can vouch that indeed Christmas is one of the best times to visit Disney. I had a grand time with family and friends but if I had known how busy and crowded it was I would have made the necessary preparations.
In this post, I will share with you all the information you need to prepare for Christmas at Disney World so you can make the most out of your holiday vacation. If this is your first time, consider yourself lucky.
Christmas at Disney means knowing when exactly you’re going to want to visit because in Disney it starts a bit early. As a matter of fact, by November, you can already experience Christmas there. If you’re traveling from a distant place and you need to take a plane ride, you can listen to the best Disney podcasts to keep you entertained and while you’re at it, pack your things in the best backpack for Disney. You can even buy matching bags for your family and friends. It will definitely look amazing on pictures. In my case, we wore matching Disney shirts and of course our very own Minnie and Mickey Mouse headbands.
When is the best time to visit Disney World?
The best times to visit Disney World are from November 26 through December 17. The best dates, in my opinion, are from November 12 to 17. However, not all Christmas decorations will be up until then. However, from November 17 to 22 the crowds can get a little crazy but if that won’t bother you then go ahead and enjoy it in full swing!
How to prepare yourself during this time:
- Prepare yourself mentally. I’m assuming you’ve already done that but aside from the excitement that’s probably consuming you right now, the mental preparation I’m talking about is preparing yourself for the long lines and the massive crowd. This is one of the busiest times of the year so it’s obvious that a lot of people are going to be there.
- Plan everything ahead. Just because you’ve got your airplane tickets booked and your bags packed don’t mean you’re all set and ready to go. Before you hop off the plane at least list down the top four or five attractions you want to visit in each park. Or you can Google them so you can maximize your time and your vacation.
- Arrive early. The lines and the queues are going to be long so what better way to counter that than to arrive early. Set your alarm early and have your breakfast and bring everything you need from extra shirts to extra towels and water bottles and cash with you and start queuing!
This has to be a part of anyone’s bucket list. Enjoy and make sure you take lots and lots of pictures!
