Disney World has announced its Christmas festivities for this year! It is now less than six months until Christmas and Disney have lots in store for you to enjoy!
The festive season will be starting in November at Disney World.
Here are what special events will be happening across the Disney World Parks, Disney World Resorts and Disney Springs in 2021!

There will also be a special holiday projection show that will appear on Cinderella Castle after the sun sets!
Magic Kingdom will have a brand new After Hours Christmas party called 'Disney Very Merriest After Hours'. This new event will debut on November 8th and runs until December 21st.
This 4-hour event will see a new firework show, 'Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks' as well as holiday decor, tasty treats, festive music and Disney characters in Christmas garb!
After Hour parties occur after the park has closed. A limited number of tickets will be available meaning you get to experience Magic Kingdom with lower crowds and enjoy all that is on offer, including the chance to ride 20 attractions, with shorter queue times.
