Disney World Christmas 2021 Is Back In Full Force, And Not Only For One Reason

Not only is Christmas time in 2021 special because it comes after a pandemic that halted most of the world's events and celebrations, locking up people inside their homes for more than a year, but this holiday season is unique because it marks the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World. Thus, one can expect this to be the most magical Christmas year at the park and never want to miss those joyful once-in-a-lifetime moments.

However, one must know several things when planning for a visit to attend Christmas festivities at Walt Disney World. It is worth noting that the event will take place from November 12, 2021, to early January 2022, with November and December likely attracting sky-high numbers of attendees. Nevertheless, people can still avoid the period between Christmas Eve and New Year to avoid the suffocating crowds, skyrocketing property rates, and the surcharges at some restaurants and buffets.

Additionally, it would be worth packing up for the season to avoid paying hefty costs on sweatshirts from the expensive shops at Walt Disney World. It is also wise not to purchase souvenirs and gifts from Dinsey since it is much cheaper to get similar gadgets from online websites.

Feel The Real Magic Of Christmas At Disney World

Most people don't believe in magic, but they will likely change their minds once they witness the marvels at Walt Disney World's Christmas celebrations. It all starts with Magic Kingdom, where most of the festivities and significant events take place in the park during Christmas. Magic Kingdom is where Main Street is located and where the town is arrayed for Christmas, and where that majestic glazing castle shines at the end. At Magic Kingdom, people have the chance to meet Disney's characters, witness Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show, and enjoy some holiday attraction overlays.

All of that happens during the new holiday event, Disney Very Merriest After Hours, which takes place at Magic Kingdom from 9 PM to 1 AM. Christmas events at Walt Disney World will see Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade return during the 2021 festivities in the park. The show happens at night, featuring magical lighting, snow on Main Street, and a dream-like ambiance. Also, at Magic Kingdom, it is essential to attend the Jingle Cruise, preferably at night, to witness the marvelous Christmas lights while turned on. Other beautiful attractions at Magic Kingdom include Cinderella Castle Holiday Projections and Totally Tinsel Tomorrowland Trio.

Never-Ending Christmas Attractions At Disney World

The Epcot International Festival Of The Holidays will occur in Walt Disney World from November 26 till December 30, 2021. The unique feature of this event is its delicious food and savory wine, but there are also much more things to do at Epcot during Christmas than yummy stuff. People who enjoy the traditional Christmas story and Choir Christmas music should attend the Candlelight Processional at Epcot. Visitors will also enjoy a projection show called Sunset Season's Greetings at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Another attraction worth witnessing is the Echo Lake Flurry Of Fun which boasts fantastic giant Christmas decorations and a huge Christmas tree.

Another park that visitors must head to during the festivities is Disney's Animal Kingdom to witness its most beautiful attraction for 2021, the Tree Of Life Holiday Awakenings. After sunset, the latter features projection-mapping vignettes telling a series of winter tales coupled with magical and inspiring music melodies. Also, at Disney's Animal Kingdom, people must enjoy the beautiful decorations of the Discovery Island Luminaries, which will turn the island into an elegant Winter Wonderland. Another park worth visiting during Christmas festivities is Disney Springs which features the Christmas Tree Stroll marvel. Attendees must also see the park's various hotels to glimpse the magical decorations at the resorts of the most magical place on earth.
