Tis the Season at Walt Disney World

๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—”๐—ฆ๐—ข๐—ก๐—ฆ ๐—š๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—˜๐—ง๐—œ๐—ก๐—š๐—ฆ!! The holidays return to Walt Disney World in a big way in 2021!! ๐ŸŽ„ While still modified to some degree, there will be celebrations spanning all four parks. We canโ€™t ask for more than that! Letโ€™s break it down and see what we can expect this holiday season.

๐ŸŽ… The merriest season of all begins November 12 at Walt Disney World Resort and will be celebrated in all 4 parks!

MAGIC KINGDOM

๐Ÿฐ Special holiday projections will appear most nights on Cinderella Castle, alternating periodically with the castleโ€™s transformation into a Beacon of Magic. Remember, the holiday celebration will be happening simultaneously with the 50th Anniversary celebration.

There is some sadness that we wonโ€™t see the return of the Cinderella Castle Dream Lights this year, but with the 50th celebration happening at the same time, the Castle is already transformed into a Royal Makeover. It would be rather difficult to have both happening at the same time. I suspect weโ€™ll see the Cinderella Castle Dream Lights return in 2023 after the 18-month 50th celebration is over.

Also returning to Disney Springs is the holiday overlay at Jack Hangarโ€™s bar. Be sure to check it out if in Disney Springs.

There is so much to look forward to as we embark on the second half of 2021. And itโ€™s exciting the see the return of so many favorites to the parks. Stay tuned to A Disney State of Mind, Iโ€™ll be sharing all the details as they are revealed.
