The Holdiay Season kicks off tonight at Walt Disney World with the start of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom and The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  November and December are two of the best months to visit WDW as there are many holiday events taking place.  The average high temps in Nov and Dec are 79 & 73 with the lows being 59 & 53.  Rainfall is at a minum this time of year.

 Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party takes place on select nights from November 9 thru December 21 from 7:00 p.m to 12:00 midnight.  A separate ticket will need to be purchased for this event, we recommend purchasing your ticket in advance as this will be less expensive then purchasing them on the day of the event.  Tickets can be purchased from the WDW website.
 If you're like me and you love the Christmas Season, you will find no more festive place then the Magic Kingdom during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  When you enter the park you will first notice how beautifully it has been decorated for the holidays as well as the sounds of Christmas music playing throughout.  The first thing you will want to do is get a schedule of the events taking place so that you can plan your night.  Mickey's Very Merry features the enchanted Castle Dream Lights on Cinderella Castle, live entertainment featuring Disney Characters, meet and greet opportunities featuring your favorite Disney Characters, complimentary cookies and hot chocolate, snow falling on Main Street, as well as special access to many of the most popular attractions at Magic Kingdom.
 In addition to the features mentioned above, Mickey's Very Merry also includes the exclusive fireworks show, Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season as well as Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.  These two events are not to be missed so plan on arranging your evening around them.  The parade takes place twice a night and we've found that the second is the least crowded.  While the first parade is taking place this is a great time to hit your favorite attractions as they will be less crowded.  For fireworks viewing we recommend a spot near the middle of Main Street.
 The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights takes place nightly at Disney's Hollywood Studios from Nov 9th thru Jan 6th.  No separate admission is needed for this event.  During the OFSDL you will see 5 million multicolored lights all perfectly synchronized to Christmas Music as well as a magical snow fall.  The effect is breathtaking and again should not be missed.
The Christmas Season is truly a magical time at the Walt Disney World Resort.  The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas will be the least busy.  If you plan on attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party try to attend one of the earlier parties as these will be the least crowded.  As it gets closer to Christmas the parties tend to sell out.  If you decide to visit WDW for the holidays we hope you have a great time!
