In the World Showcase guests can listen to holiday storytellers, musical acts, see other performers throughout the different countries, and they’ll be able to see some fun and festive decorations. Also, from November 26 – December 24 Santa Claus will be paying a visit to The American Adventure. So if you have a wish for Christmas make sure to catch the jolly man in the red suit while visiting the pavilion.
There are holiday decorations throughout EPCOT and all the other parks, as well as the Disney World Resort hotels, so make sure to take a look around while visiting the parks and hotels. The gingerbread house at The Grand Floridian and the gingerbread carousel at the Beach Club are both back this year and those are really impressive to see in person. The cast members who make and build the gingerbread displays include a sign with all the ingredients they used and it’s quite a lot. Also, all the hotels have a Christmas tree that is themed to the hotel, so it’s fun to visit different hotels and see all the trees.
