The Holiday season is upon us as we visit two parks in this week’s Dateline Disney World photo update. But first, a bit of Disney Springs news.
Disney Springs is ready to celebrate the Holiday season in style! Several fan favorites are back along with some special new events. Every evening at 6pm, the Marketplace Christmas tree will be illuminated in a special tree lighting ceremony. Be on the look out for toy solider stilt walkers and life sized toys.
Disney Springs Christmas Tree trail is a new addition this Holiday season. The Marketplace plays host to fifteen different Christmas trees, each focusing on a favorite Disney Character or Movie Moment. You’ll discover a light dusting of “ snow” and enjoy beloved Christmas songs. Don’t miss Santa! He’s taken up residence in Santa’s Chalet. Plan on visiting early, but no matter when you stop by you can pick up a pager that’ll hold your place in the queue.
A couple special events at Disney Springs this upcoming weekend. On Nov. 18, Once Upon a Toy will be hosting Game Night with Disney Design Group artist Quynh Kimball from 7 to 9pm. “Disney Theme Park Edition III Monopoly” and” Pirates of the Caribbean Battleship” are just a couple of the board games Quynh helped design.
On Nov. 18-19, The Art of Disney will feature an Artist Showcase with David Buckley, Will Gay, Joe Kaminski, and Darren Wilson. They are scheduled to meet Guests from 6 to 9pm both days.
Now, off to Disney Hollywood Studios for some Christmas cheer . . .
The holidays are off to a roaring start at Animal Kingdom as well . . .
