In addition to the Disney D-Light drone display introduced for the resort’s 30th anniversary, the “Disney Dreams! of Christmas” nighttime spectacular will return this holiday season as part of the anniversary celebration, combining fireworks, dancing fountains, Christmas songs, and projections of scenes from “Frozen,” and “Toy Story.”

To mark this extra special year, the show will be even more dazzling than ever with brand-new LED technology to create effects on the rooftops of Sleeping Beauty Castle that have never been seen before in a Disney Park and are synchronized with the show.

“Mickey’s Dazzling Christmas Parade” – which first debuted in 2021 – will also return with five colorful illuminated floats that celebrate the magic of winter (both during the day and at night), that are synchronized with music and feature Mickey and his friends, along with Disney Princesses and Santa Claus. Plus, the performers’ shiny costumes – specially designed for the occasion – will create sparkling effects on Main Street, U.S.A.

Several times throughout the day, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy will take the Videopolis stage to celebrate favorite Christmas carols with the musical show “Let’s Sing Christmas!” – and this year, Minnie has a special surprise in store for Mickey, as she performs a cover version of “All I want for Christmas is… Mickey.”

Guests can find delicious holiday bites and sips throughout the resort, including the return of L’Hiver Gourmand in Walt Disney Studios Park, a winter market of chalets serving gingerbread, crepes, hot chocolate, and other holiday treats.
