WDW UPdate 10

IMGMinnie Mouse

Here is Disney Elite's weekly UPdate to ensure your trip to Walt Disney World is that Magical vacation you've been dreaming of! We have provided the most up-to-date information for events at all the Parks, as well as any closures or refurbishments to be aware of during your visit. 

The countdown to Christmas is officially underway at Disney. There are so many ways to celebrate the holiday throughout the parks and we have them all right here! All of the Disney Parks are all decked out and ready to fill you with the Christmas spirit. Every night in Magic Kingdom, Queen Elsa transforms Cinderella's castle into a twinkling ice palace during her A Frozen Holiday Wish show. 

If you want to know how Disney dresses up for the holidays, take one of Disney's Behind the Magic tours. The Holiday D-Lights 5-hour tour takes you backstage and shares their secrets behind Disney World's holiday traditions at Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Disney's Yule Tide Fantasy tour offers 3.5 hours behind the scenes at Epcot and one of the beautiful Disney Resort hotels. 

If you want additional help planning your vacation, visit the My Disney Experience website to create your dream vacation with a day-to-day planning guide. Don't forget to download the free mobile app to use on the go while at the parks. Use this Magical app to check the wait-times for all the attractions, make dining reservations, get your Fast Passes, and more! There is an interactive map to help guide you through the Parks. Please remember to visit Walt Disney World's website for the latest updates as your vacation approaches. Share your vacation plans with us or ask questions you may have on our discussion boards here at Disney Elite!
