How about spending the most wonderful time of the year in the happiest place (more like city!) on Earth? You know that place where Santa Claus definitely exists and the Grinch is not that bad after all. That place where you can find Christmas carols & stories in every corner, while fireworks and parades make you feel like a kid all over again.
Take a look at this bucket list of things to do during Christmas week. We promise that you (and your family, of course!) will like each and every one of them:
December 24 (Day 1)
Drink a Butter Beer at a Sunny (and snowy!) Hogsmeade:
Every muggle or wizard needs to try this tasty (alcohol-free) drink while exploring the shops at Hogsmeade in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
Check out the famous Macy’s Holiday Parade in Universal Studios:
That way your kids won’t have to stay up all night waiting to see Santa flying in his sleigh.
Try to catch the Grinch before he steals Christmas!
Actually he is pretty under control at Universal, just find him and take a picture with the Green one himself.
Movie Night with Santa at the Palace
That just sounds awesome, doesn’t it? At our Westgate Palace in Orlando we have a great movie theater perfect for catching a movie while drinking some Starbucks Hot Chocolate before going to sleep.
You can also meet the one and only Santa Claus and take a picture with the jolly one anytime from 6AM -8PM (Lobby area).
December 25 (Day 2)
Spend the Holidays around the World at Epcot!
Meet people from all over the world, hear their stories, explore their culture, taste their food, and learn about their holiday celebrations!
Star Wars is always popular, so why not visit some of the Disney Star Wars attractions? You can meet Darth Vader and Chewbacca, see concept arts, gadgets, ships, and more.
Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!
Visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios for an exceptional snow-stopping nighttime spectacle Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM, complete with plenty of fireworks and lots of amazing special effects!
December 26 (Day 3)
Enjoy the best view of Orlando in a Christmas Decorated Capsule:
During the holidays, the ICON Orlando observation wheel features two very cool capsules, the Holiday and the Santa. Both of them include some amazing immersive experiences including decor, scent, beverages, you name it!
Go-Kart Rides and Funnel Cakes at Fun Spot, anyone?
This Fun Spot is located in Old Town Kissimmee, which is an awesome place to have your kids enjoy the carnival-like attractions while you can explore some classic stores and antique cars.
