Christmas will look much different at Disney this year! 🙁
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Christmas traditions at Walt Disney Theme Parks, Disneyland and Disney World are seeing some changes.
In addition to face masks being required, Disney has put several other guidelines into place to keep up with CDC recommendations and ensure the safety of their guests comes first.
Now with the holiday season just around the corner, Disney has officially announced that Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Candlelight Procession at EPCOT have been canceled.
Like all other large group attractions that have been suspended, including Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party, Disney has canceled these two popular holiday events, which typically invited large groups in close quarters, including the exchange of candy and other goodies between persons, all of which goes against COVID-19 safety recommendations.
In addition, the famous gingerbread house displays which many guests loved to interact with in previous years, will not be making a return this season.
There are still things to be merry about!
All Disney parks and resorts will still be decked out as early as November 6th; with dozens of fan-favorite seasonal treats, hundreds of Christmas trees, and other festive displays that Disney fans know and love.
I know a personal favorite of mine, the Grand Californian Resort in Anaheim, CA, will still be highly-decorated as always, combining the coziness of log cabins, fireplaces, and yule logs, with the unparalleled creativity of Disney, including a massive 60-foot Christmas tree in the lobby!
Plus, Santa Claus will still be making his appearance throughout the parks this holiday season, along with the Elves, Reindeer, and Jolly Disney Characters!
While we are seeing changes in many things Disney this year, one thing’s for sure – the holidays at Disney are always a spectacle to see!
