Illuminations will be revamped to coincide with the holiday theme. The candlelight procession is a tradition that dates back to DLR in the beginning of the park days. Each year a celebrity tells the Christmas Story.

Holiday time at the parks is a special event for the whole family. Be picky about your weeks that you book to avoid as best you can high traffic times. The eye candy and well, just the candy itself is amazing during this time of year. Disney embraces the holiday time of year and goes all out with food, decor and entertainment.
