There’s always something wonderful going on at Orlando’s Walt Disney World (Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, MGM Studios and Animal Kingdom), Universal Orlando, SeaWorld and Fun Spot especially during the holiday season.

At Disney now through January 6, 2019, enjoy a walk-through experience with falling snow, holiday music and 27 trees with decorations inspired by a Disney character or theme. Look for Cinderella, Fantasia, The Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, Frozen and more throughout your tour.   It’s a Marketplace Miracle, beginning at the play fountain outside of the Once Upon a Toy shop where you’ll find unique gifts for all on your list.
